Top Barbers related questions

The main difference between the two is that barbers are trained in cutting shorter hair with simplistic styles. If you would like a traditional masculine haircut, a barber is where you should go. Hairdressers, on the other hand, are trained in cutting longer, fuller styles. If you're going for trendy, fashion-forward hairstyle, a hairdresser would be a wise choice.

Nope! Barbers typically do not colour hair. Their training is mainly on giving traditional haircuts, like military-style, fade, slicked back, or buzz cuts. If you want your hair to have colours or highlights, it's best to go to a hairdresser. Most of the time, they would even give you tips or suggestions on which hair colour suits you the most.

It depends on your hair length and style. For short haircuts, at least once a month would be enough. Medium length hairstyles can be trimmed every 1 to 2 months, and long hair can be cut once every three to six months. If you like to sport undercut or skin fade hairstyles, you may need to visit your barber for a quick trim more often, because these looks get messy faster than the other styles.

If they would like to have a shorter, masculine haircut, they can go to the barbers. But for stylish cuts, colour, and hair treatments, going to a hair salon would be the best. Since hairdressers are more updated with the latest hair trends, you can ask them for style suggestions that will flatter your features better.

That depends on the hairstyle you want to have, and the range of services you like to avail. Haircut and shave usually last for 20 to 30 minutes. Typically, haircuts take 15 to 20 minutes, but if you would like a more complicated hairstyle like a fade, it would typically take 45 minutes. We recommend blocking an hour for your barber appointment to be safe.

Most barbers go through private courses, further education, or apprenticeship to earn a certification. It ensures that they have all the skills they need, such as cut-throat shaving, beard trimming, freehand clipping, and carving. While anyone can call themselves a barber, a certification and formal training show that they have the skills and knowledge to do a great job.

What do barber services include?

Find good barbers near you through our platform who can trim or cut your hair just the way you like it. Our Taskers are ready to serve you as home barbers or anywhere you prefer, so you won't have to wonder if there are any open barbers nearby. Whether they're a men's barber or a unisex barber, getting the haircut you want is possible. Here are some of the most popular barbers services we can help you with:

Turkish barbers services

Turkish barbers offer a unique service: from hot towel shave and beard trimming to nasal hair waxing, hair singeing, and massage. Usually, Turkish barbers first open your pores to let out bacteria, excess oil and dirt using steam and a towel. 

This way, your face is as clean as possible for a close, clean shave. Massaging aftershave into your face is the finishing touch to make your skin feel smooth and smell great. Hire Turkish barbers near you to have a shaving experience that could leave you feeling refreshed and pampered!

Afro barbers services

Afro hair needs a specific and special type of care that not any barber can give. We can connect you with afro barbers near you who know how to deal with complexities that come with cutting kinky hair. You can ask your Tasker to cut your afro the way you prefer depending on your hair growth pattern, whether it's a flat top, buzz cut, shape-up, or dreads. Your natural curls will look sharp effortlessly in no time!

Beard grooming

Going to a professional beard barber makes a big difference rather than just trimming it on your own. But you don't have to search far and wide for a beard grooming service you can trust. We have experienced beard barbers near you who can take care of your facial hair! 

Whether you decide to have it trimmed because of an upcoming special event, or because your beard growth is getting out of hand, your Tasker can groom it according to your desired style and look. Feel free to tell your Tasker if you're going for a hipster beard, grizzly lumberjack look, modern goatee, or a minimalistic stubble, and they will make it happen for you!

Kids barbers services

Are your kid's locks going wild? No worries, because there are kids barbers near you who can handle that! Whether it's for a back-to-school ritual, a family photoshoot, or just a regular day haircut, you can make sure that our rated Taskers can get the job done. 

You need barbers who are not only skilled in haircutting, but also in making sure your kids, especially squirmy or energetic toddlers, can stay put. Your Tasker can provide simple toys, colourful books, or fun videos your kid can watch while they get their haircut. Aside from a new hairstyle, your kid also gains an enjoyable experience!
