Getting a close shave can be difficult – especially when using cheap, store-bought shaving creams that we see being advertised every day. There are many reasons why those cheap shaving creams and gels don’t produce the results that they claim to, but one of the main reasons is the quality (or lack thereof) of the ingredients found in those products.
Belmont barber chairs began in the 30’s. They were built and designed by Hidenobu Yoshikawa who also founded Takara Chuzo Ltd. in 1921. In the 1950’s, the company expanded into other markets around the world. It’s first order of business – set up shop in New York. Thus, Takara Company NY Inc. was born. It marked the first instance of a foreign entity entering into an already established barber supply industry in the United States. Notable market leaders at that time include Koken Barber’s Supply Company and Emil J. Paidar Company. Both manufacturers were competing for more market share, with Paidar already having 70% of the market. Koken, on the other hand had a niche in that it has patents for groundbreaking enhancements, such as the hydraulic lift.
Barber Shops school is more hands-on than actual textbook learning. There are some things that you will have to study and learn from a book, but most of the training is practical applications since this is a trade career. At least with the right training, you’ll know that you are able to do the job that you chose once you’re out on your own. After all, you can’t learn how to cut hair just by reading a book. You have to practice your skills and work on technique in a hands-on format.
Waiting Rooms. Waiting rooms in doctors and dentists’ offices, Barber Shops, and other places where people may have to sit and wait are perfect places to market your book to a captive audience. Bring a free book to your dentist, your optometrist, your hairdresser, your local car garage. Tell them they can have the book for free and they are welcome to take it home to read, but you would then like to have it left in the waiting room for people to look at. The doctor or dentist will be excited that you are giving him or her something for free, and the patients or customers will be sure to see it and be able to read just enough to wet their interest so they will want to buy the book later.
You probably understand this reason. If you have ever had to sit in the salon for longer than you intended, then you can understand this incentive. Why wait for hours for someone else to get a trim and color, when you want a simple haircut. Eliminate this variable entirely by having a pair of clippers at home. You won’t have to worry about missing an appointment or waiting in line again.
Eye shadows, pencils, lip liners, concealer, powders, lipsticks and most other skin care and cosmetics should be kept 12-18 months- that’s it! They do not improve with age, like wine.
Working in a hair salon means learning everything you can in cosmetology school. It is more than cutting, coloring, and up-dos. You also need to enjoy working with people on a daily basis when you work in a beauty shop. Whether you work in a small or large shop, your customers will keep coming back if you make them happy.
