Barbering

Over the past 5 years Barbering has increased in popularity and barber's shops are experiencing a revival in male grooming. Men have become more concerned than ever about their appearance.
These days men, as much as women, are being judged by their looks and are under constant pressure to keep a youthful image. Men of all ages are consulting with their local barber to be inspired and be given a new style to compete with television and film celebrities.
A generation ago, being interested in hair would have been seen as an unmanly profession to pursue. Fortunately times and attitudes have changed and barbering has become fashionable with male and female of all ages. Barbering is not just about cutting hair but styling and designing too. It is a trade that will never be replaced by machines or computers and has earned renewed respect as a recognised career path.
