Worst Thing To Say To Your Barber

Spencer Bryce |

We all know finding a barber to give you a quality beard trim can be extremely hard...

So don't make it even harder by making a critical mistake with your direction.

One of the worst things you can say to your barber is:

Just clean it up

What the heck does that even mean!?

That is a vague statement that is sure to set you up for failure. Your idea of "clean it up" can be drastically different than the barbers and the last thing you want to do is put your blind faith in him or her to read your mind and know what you want.ย 

Do you want your bead tight on the sides? Boxed or rounded at the corners? There are a lot of different ways to trim a beard so you really need to be specific.ย 

Our Advice

Show pictures. Make it as clear as possible and show examples of the type of beard style you're after and that will not only make it easier on your barber, but it'll set you up for a successful beard trim you're excited about.ย

I just prefer not going to the barber to mess up my beard and my hair on my head doesnโ€™t grow like it used to so I prefer shaving my head and trimming my own beard.
