Since I had a rather uneventful wash day I thought I would share with you ladies a barbershop wash day. The salon where I got my touch up done also has a barbershop within. So while I was in there I couldn’t help but observe the guys over at the barbershop at work. Most of the clients came in for a haircut and left but there were some who came for a haircut and a wash. Oh the salon/barbershop had a sterilizing machine for barbing tools and combs which is a definite plus from me because that tells me they take hygiene very seriously. Anyway the guys who came in for a haircut and wash went through the following steps, the haircut first followed by a wash and head massage. Their hair was washed at the same shampoo stand as the ladies so I am assuming similar products to what the ladies use were used no deep conditioning was involved though there was nothing to deep condition after the haircut anyway hehehe. I noticed that quite a considerable amount of time was spent massaging the barbershop client heads and I later learnt the massage is the reason most of the guys asked for a wash. Dry head massages are also available post barbing but it seems most of the clients preferred a shampoo stand massage. And guess who they wanted washing and massaging their heads? The female staff lol this was a very interesting observation considering the salon has a fairly even mix of male and female staff. So a male staff would do the barbing and then a female staff the wash and massage and then the male staff handles any finishing touches post washing. I think the salon management had noticed this so it was a given if anyone wanted a wash the female staff would do it. Unlike the lady clients who did not mind who washed their hair. Wash done their heads were patted dry with a towel, some asked for a light blow drying session to dry them off completely while others were ok with the towel pat. I think some products were used in the final touches post barbing and washing but I am not sure what they were. All in all it was a very interesting observation of a barbershop at work.
