You might be thinking to yourself, man, I’ve really noticed a lot more men’s barber shops around town than there used to be.
You would actually be right, in fact, since 2012 Barbershops have seen nothing but continuous growth in demand, jobs, and most importantly revenue. But why is this? We think it’s safe to say barber shops are on the rise, as are societal expectations as well
Here are some reasons we think trends are changing
Millennials – Noticeably, at the forefront of just about every industry these days, we see more and more younger people with higher incomes than generations past, which means more expendable funds for things like highly professional personal care.
Class Is Trending – Another reason for the barbershop comeback is the return of the “dashing gentleman.” For a long time now, men have been regarded as lazy in their appearance, having an easy morning routine on their way out to work. These days, women have a higher expectation for a man’s appearance than before. We have gentlemen like Leonardo DiCaprio and Neil Patrick Harris for their ability to “suit up,” to thank for that.
One Word, “Swag.” – The saying dress to impress extends much further than clothing, and any woman would know this. For men however, hair and facial hair haven’t always been on the grooming list when it comes to impression. That’s changed now, and having a fresh haircut has become a priority. Whether it’s for a full service shave with a faded haircut, or your run of the mill shave and a haircut, it’s necessary for looking your best. Sorry guys, caps and beanies no longer fly.
Obviously there are more reasons for rise of Barbershops, we just happen to know how important these reasons are. With that said, you’re probably due for a haircut, and maybe even a full service shave, so contact our barbers today for a men’s haircut today.
