Hairdressers are located in most – if not all – towns and cities around the world. Probably one of the longest going businesses in the world (razors have been found as far back as the Bronze Age – 3500 BC), and is even mentioned in the bible. However, in the past hairdressers & barbers were also dentists and surgeons, carrying out tooth extraction, blood letting, and a few other minor tasks. Often, it was quite bloody, and the red & white poles outside many hairdressers were originally placed because blood soaked towels were wrapped around poles to show that a barber was there!
Nowadays it’s a lot more civilized and hygienic, with hairdressers concentrating on cutting and styling hair than dentistry and surgery. Hairdressers are now responsible for styling hair in new and wonderful fashions, but how do you find a good one, or one that you like? Well, here’s some advice, from a group of Bangor Hairdressers, on what to look for in a hairdresser.
The first thing is quality. I’m not saying sit outside every single hairdressers in the town you live in and see which ones you like, but ask your friends who have nice where their hair gets cut. If it’s local and near, why not plonk a visit for the next time? 90% of trade done for hairdressers is through recommendation, so they’ll do the best job they can.
