#BARBERLIFE
We all go through our days cutting hair, or sitting around waiting for someone to come sit in our chair, or eating lunch, or taking a nip of that whisky...no wait, I don’t do that when the shop is slow (but I know a couple barbers that do). We are all trying our best to make sure that each and every person that sits in our chair comes back to sit in our chair again and again.
