Men are very particular about their hair.  They tend to stick with a Barber that is familiar with their hair.  For that reason, they choose to go to the same Barber on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.  This is an excellent opportunity for you to team up with the Barber and offer a slight discount if the client pre-books with you for their next appointment. Let them know that if they pre-book, they will not only be saving money, they won’t have to wait to get into your chair.  The transition from Barber to Braider will be smooth and the client will be happy.
