Is Knowing How To Cut Hair One Of The Best Skills A Person Can Have?

My mother always said this. When you have a bad economy, people will always need to have their hair cut. It's a good skill to fall back on. Everyone needs it.

What do you think?

I get my hair cut a lot less when times are bad for me. It's one of the first things I eliminate from the budget.

I'll wait until I have a job interview lined up, otherwise I'll let it grow.

You need more than know how to cut hair. You need clients, if you dont have any, good luck getting hired someplace. The ability to stand on your feet for eight hours helps, so does having a current license. The pay is only so-so.

Dermatology is a good skill.

Mortician is a good skill to have in a bad economy.

Um, no. Being able to cut hair is as useful as being a massage therapist in a tough economy. When money's extremely tight, you still need toilet paper and food, and maybe a bar of soap and toothpaste (optional) but that's about it.

My old boss was once a barber, and he would often say that giving that up was the biggest mistake he ever made. No stress, fixed hours, pocket the cash from 1 haircut in 3, and if you get tired of where you are there's always room for a good barber anywhere you want to live.

We're not talking about a career. You could easily cut your neighbors hair, even the elderly. It's easy cash. r8, are you going to let your hair grow down to the ground? We're not talking perms here.

Locksmith seems like a pretty good job too. The couple I've met stay real busy opening cars and re-keying locks.

I wait longer between haircuts, but I still go. That and manicures, you can't go wrong.

No. Get an esthetics license. Hair can be manipulated but not your face. You'll have plenty of time to laser off imperfections on yourself while waiting for your 3 o'clock. Almost as good as being in medical or foodstuffs these days. Can I get a WOO WOO?

R3, you don't need clients or a following. That takes time to build. What if you moved from another city? What if you're just starting out? I hate your mentality. So Old World. Ya gotta know someone in the business...blah blah. No you don't. Just have the passion and talent. Everyone has to start somewhere. Your mentality coddles one into not even bothering to show up for life. Jeez, lose that losing attitude. Lose it now!
