    My barber recently moved cities :sadcam:. All the other barbers in the shop are trash. So this has forced me to go out looking for a new one. I've been going to StyleSeat and Booksy looking for them in my area. Have seen a lot of decent to really good barbers on there, but one thing I noticed is most of them had a "First time client" charge.

    Brehs have their regular cuts from $25 to $35 then their first time charges are $55 to $70 :gucci:. What kinda backwards ass shiit is this? Usually you give new customers/clients discounts, then you give them the real price once they come back. Is this the new hustle for barbers?

    I miss the barber shop experience since I've been cutting my own and thinning. Still, when I went it was generally around 15 plus a tip. Inflation done hit the barber shop too eh?

    I go to hood shops in Queens, they ain't fukking with that. First time fee? Let me slide to the homie next to you who ain't seen a customer all week :skippp:

    One time my regular barber told me, "if the owner ain't here just order me Chinese or bring a six pack, I got you, I already hit my goal for the day"
