Barber v Salon Stylist by Goodfellas Vintage Barbershop Dubai

You are here

Barbers spend years acquiring skills in short and long hair creating all types of haircuts, shaves, fades, hair colouring, keratin treatments, beard care etc.

So, should a man go to a barber or a salon? Well flattops belong in barbers, whereas a long shag with chunky highlights may well be more suited to a salon stylist, but your choice depends on the style you are looking for!

Barbers are typically trained to cut shorter, traditional haircuts for men and are specialists in using clippers, while salon stylists receive more training in the art of styling hair with scissors. But as the industry trend continues to move forward with an increasing number of high-end barbershops and salons for men, the barber is now more skilled than ever.

If you are looking for a short haircut, maybe a buzzcut, flattop, fade, or military-style cut, barbers will ask you how you want your hair cut and do what you ask, and with most barber services cheaper than salon stylists, money can be saved by going to a good barber. Barbers like to keep haircuts simple and easy to maintain while offering you a hot lather shave and maybe a manicure and pedicure for the weekend!

If your hair is longer, you may find that a salon stylist has the skills you need for colour and styling, or maybe you want advice on new trends for long hair that will suit your face.

Barbers tend to have more choice of styling products made especially for men and both barber, and salon stylists know the correct product for you to maintain your hair at home.

So, your choice is your style of choice and talk to your barber first, as some barbershops now have stylists on site as well or will recommend you to a good salon.
