Todays world of haircare has seen the rise of a number corporate/franchise/chair shops. Many of these businesses have thousands of locations around the country. Typically these establishments hire cosmetologists rather than barbers. Their employees are well-trained in chemical treatments and the use of products or appliances that change the way a person’s hair would naturally be.

You’re not burdened by sales meetings and corporate quotas to sell extra services and/or products. Your goal is to make folks happy with their hair through your skillful cutting abilities. Take pride in that fact!
