Top Afro Barbers related questions

Afro hair types range from Types 4A through 4C. When stretched, Type 4A has a well-defined S-shaped pattern and has curls that have a circumference close to a standard pencil. Type 4B hair strands are Z-shaped, while Type 4C is tightly coiled and densely packed, but both have no defined curl pattern. All of these afro hair types are prone to breakage, that's why they all need attentive care from afro barbers and hairdressers.

It all depends on your hair condition, length, texture, and the cut or style you prefer. Typically, simple haircuts on short hair should last from 30 minutes to an hour, while cuts on long hair take about 2 hours to finish. Naturally, it would take longer hours if you want to apply hair braiding, colouring, and treatments.

You can, but make sure to dry it thoroughly first before going to the barbers. When afro hair is wet, natural curl patterns loosen. When it dries, the pattern returns and goes through shrinkage. Ergo, it would look much longer than its real length when dry. For good measure, it's best to trim or cut afro hair when it's dry to see the effect on your hair's length right away.

Maintaining your afro hair involves using afro-friendly hair products. Several hair products can be very harmful to your kinky hair, so you need to identify which ones are the best to help maintain the health of the curls. You can even ask advice from experts specialising in curly hair! Aside from these, a balanced diet can help keep your hair healthy, protect your hair from harsh conditions, and visit afro barbers for regular trimming.

Like all barbers, afro barbers also use a sharp pair of professional salon-quality shears. Since afro hair takes a bit long to be cut and trimmed, they use special trimmers that run seamlessly for hours to get even results. They also require trimmers with a powerful motor so that it can deal with thick hair effortlessly; otherwise, it will burn out quickly.

Technically, you can! All you need is to make sure you have the proper tools and requirements before cutting your afro hair. However, if you want to save time, you can go straight to a professional afro barber to ensure that it's done correctly and safely. Not only that, but you can also get expert advice when it comes to proper afro hair maintenance!

What do afro barbers services include?

Our services cover everything you may need from afro barbers, from trimming and cutting to overall afro hair care. Whether it's a quick haircut session or a hair and beard pampering you never thought you needed, our men's afro barbers near you can give you a trustworthy service. You can also have it at any time or place convenient for you with the help of afro mobile barbers or hairdressers near you. Here are some of the services they can provide:

Afro beard grooming

Have your beard be regularly taken care of by skilled afro beard groomers! While it's true that you can trim your beard yourself, it still takes a professional beard grooming service to know which beard style suits your face and how to maintain it properly. They can also help you deal with the skin beneath your beard, and even suggest the right products depending on your beard type. If you're unsure, feel free to ask your Tasker about the steps to beard care.

Afro hair trimming

Trimming is an essential part of an effective hair routine, especially with afro hair as it tends to get fragile. It makes your curls look and feel bouncier, lighter, and healthier because it removes split ends and damaged or old hair. Typically, afro hair should be trimmed every 8 to 12 weeks to keep its shape and the ends tangle-free. Afro barbers near you can help you trim your hair and get the best results!

Afro cutting and styling

Whether it's the afro fade, taper, or classic shape up, you can have a trusted barber to take care of that for you! Not only can they give you the hairstyle that looks right for you, but afro hair stylists near you can also provide you with useful tips and tricks on how to keep them in tip-top shape. You can communicate with your Tasker about your hair growth pattern, and from there, they can determine which afro haircut and style suits you the best.

Afro-Caribbean hairdressing

If you have longer and bigger afro hair, and you want to add some stylish touches to it, some Afro-Caribbean barbers near you can also offer hairdressing services. Aside from trimming and cutting hair, these hairdressers are also usually skilled in colouring your hair, braiding, cornrows, gel twists, wash and blow-dry, weaves, and treatments. Let your Tasker know what you want for your hair so they can proceed using afro-friendly products and processes.
