Surrender them a Heads – We are all human and as such have the freedom to change our minds if we consider it the right thing to do. However, injecting some decorum to the decision will not hurt anyone. Call your barber and let them know of your decision. If they are professional, then they will respect and appreciate the heads up. Do not just show up about fourteen days later and walk straight to your new barber’s seat without informing the soon-to-be old barber. Although they will not show it, it usually is an awkward feeling.

Be Open to Try out All Barbers – This tip works best if you have just moved to another neighborhood. After shopping around and settling on a barbershop of choice, make it known to the barbers that will at one point try each barber’s skills. This leaves you a bit of space to change barbers at whatever point the need arises. The downside to this is you will have to give instructions more than a than a couple of times to each barber. You, therefore, want to make sure that they are all qualified and that their hair cutting skills are not just above average.

Create a Transition Phase – By creating a transition phase, you ease the tension on yourself as well as your barber. You can achieve this through a number of ways. You can, for instance, have the new barber work on your beard as the current one does your haircut. On the next trip, have the new barber do your hair and save your beard for your current barber. With time, both will get used to the situation, and that is the point at which you can reassess without too much fight. It is critical to let this transition phase last just long enough.
