a barber cutting a man's hairThere is good reason to invest in the hairstyling business, according to statistics available from the United States Department of Labor. Available data from the department indicate an employment growth projection of 13% between 2016 and 2026.

This rate is faster than the average for all other occupations without factoring in the expected increase in demand from population growth. In 2016 alone, there were 673,700 barbers, hairdressers, and cosmetologists in the United States.

In summary, there is a tremendous opportunity for anyone turning a hairstyling hobby into a profession especially as the median hourly wage for barbers was $12.38 in May 2016.

As with many other occupations, state licensing is also a requirement and graduation from a state-approved barber then licensure subject to passing a state examination. Having passed the exam, setting up the business is a major step and purchase of the right equipment is critical to success.

Here are three important styling equipment to purchase.

Electric Clippers

A professional barber cannot do without electric clippers, and in North America, customers will expect no less. Whether the barber decides to buy cordless or corded types, getting Wahl clippers for sale is easy all over the United States.

Again, the clipper could be made from stainless steel or ceramic, and each has its advantages and disadvantages. Peculiar circumstances and needs will determine the choice.

Scissors and Shears

As much as many men prefer to have their hair cut with clippers, some still insist on using scissors. Actually, scissors and shears are traditionally mandatory tools for any barber. While the former is useful in cutting long and short hair, the latter is a lot sharper and valuable in making sharp and clean cuts.

Straight Razor

This type of razor is typically for the barbershop and not the regular domestic use. Its durability and solid build make it appropriate for barbers as daily use will not quickly wear it out.

The current and anticipated growth in the occupation will provide even more opportunities as changing masculine lifestyles now encourages haircutting, beard trimming, hairstyling, and shampooing, among others. There is obviously more to come.
