Barber supplies come in many different shapes and forms, and it’s important for any barber to make sure they have all the supplies they need for any job. Read on to learn about some of the basic supplies you need for a fully functional barber shop.
Scissors & Shears
Scissors and sheers are basic tools for any type of barbershop. Barbers will want multiple scissors, some large for larger chunk of hair in the beginning, as well as some smaller scissors for minor trimming. No matter the hair or the style, detail is important and that means multiple pairs of scissors and shears for maximum mobility and the ability to cut from various angles.
Combs & Brushes
A barber shop needs multiple combs and brushes to work with hair of all types whether curly, wavy, or straight. The combination of brushes and combs are almost as important as the scissors.
Electric clippers are another tool. Perfect for tackling hair growth in the back and side of the neck, as well as around the ears, there’s no question that electric clippers are a part of any barbershop. From cleaning out unwanted hair to trimming up facial hair, no barber shop is going to work without this modern tool.
Shaving razors are optional as there aren’t as many people who request a straight razor shave nowadays, but it is a high quality service that many gentlemen will absolutely love. A true straight razor shave is a luxury service, in large part because it takes some serious skill to master the art of a straight razor shave.
Hair Care Products
Hair care products not only include exceptional shampoo and conditioners but also specialty hair care products such as scented beard oil. High quality hair care products are all the rage, and for good reason!
