Re: My First self cut Flat
Posted by BarberU on June 21, 2012, 9:47 pm, in reply to "Re: My First self cut Flat"
Again how are you cuting hair when your barber is not yet credible to teach.... if the board finds out whichis rare you could lose credibility to test and your barber could lose his license no offense but would be pissed if you were cutting me with out the barber offering me the info that you are "learning" on my head . are you actually cutting there or what are you doing there all day? Most guys expect a barbershop cut to be by a licensed barber but since I got one license in cali I know half the barbershops their are bogus with unlicensed undocumented barbers. Just beware. |
: Yes I am paying him but not enough in my mind.
: I have several medically related degrees so

: Therapist and medical Dosimetrist RTT ( R )
: ( T ) and CMD. and no I probably wont quit a
: high paying job to become a barber full
: time....but you never know and if nothing
: else ...having a ball.

: Make sure you get all the details I did not
: think Calif was allowing apprentice
: barbering anymore. usually that is only
: used in a state where there is no barber
: schools. This guy is prepared to teach you
: all day. ??? We had classroom every morning
: for almost 2 hours. Is he going to teach
: you the anatomy chemistry and diseases also?
: what if the shop is busy how will he help
: you with a difficult haircut when he has
: customers. When you are in a classroom/
: barbershop setting you really learn from
: the other students also. and state law
: requires usually you put in 8 hours 1 to
: 2 of classroom
: besides 6 0r 7 on the floor hours. You are
: also not allowed to cut with plastic guards
: at all in school and hey are usually not
: allowed at the state board testing. So be
: sure you are able to cut with scissors as
: well as just the oster blade clipper over
: comb. We were not able to use the osters
: however at the state boards just the andis.
: And it had to be a business taper cut was
: the only option to be graded on. Sounds
: like this guy is taking on alot with a
: student barber are you paying anything? I
: guess it is cheaper than barber college.?
: Also are you a master barber? that usually
: requires another test.?? so many thoughts.
: If this guy not qualified yet how are you
: even able to touch a customer? I would not
: advertise too much on here because it would
: be easy for someone bring a lawsuit on the
: barber if you accidentally cut someone or
: nicked them and it got infected and you are
: technically not even supposed to handle
: tools yet unless the barber is graded for
: accepting an apprentice. How is this week 5
: then? those hours might be zero up til
: this point. Make sure you check with the
: board on your own also. So many barbers are
: not up to date on the laws that are current.

: Sorry BarberU for not responding before.Yes
: have to do courses in
: sanitation,technique,even a business class
: is required. The barber who is training me
: has done this before and is working all of
: that out. Just found out I will have to
: audit some of the classes at barber
: school.....had not counted on that but
: shouldnt be a problem Fred thinks. He also
: has to pass a test of some kind because its
: been awhile since he has taught. To be
: honest ...thinking now it might be easier to
: just go to barber school and I do have to
: have more hours logged with an
: apprenticship. But it all happened by
: accident really. I was getting a haircut and
: somehow we started talking about me wanting
: to do it for a very long time and he
: suggested we just go ahead and do it. So
: here I am and so far its been more fun than
: even I thought it would be. As the classes
: come up I will fill you in if interested on
: how that will work. Hoping soon I will feel
: comfortable telling everyone what shop it is
: and where its located incase they want to
: get a cut or just hang out....its that kind
: of place. Will share some pics soon...not
: sure why the one attached here did not come

: I had asked this question before but you
: never responded, why are you not in barber
: school which would probably speed up your
: process also are you going to be ready to
: take the calif. state boards when it is
: time? do you have the books and all the
: study guides? If you need any advice let me
: know there is no way you will pass the
: written test unless you are in a classroom
: once in a while. The written is what
: usually gets people failed. Or are you
: doiong this to be a barber?

: ]Apprenticing at a local shop . Started
: week five today...will take forever doing
: half days but am having a blast just being
: there. This is my first self cut flat after
: 3 different days of re_cutting and tweeking
: it.... had never really tried cutting my
: own hair. A lot harder than cutting someone
: elses....hats off to Andre for example who
: makes it look easy.
This board is designed to be a destination to discuss male haircuts, from buzzcuts, flattops, bald, and more!Hosted for FREE by Boardhost.
By using this, you accept all liability for your posts and their contents. BuzzLife administration and Boardhost accept no liability whatsoever by posts, ideas, opinions, links to external sources, videos, to name a few among the vast amount of content that could be contained in said posts. Therefore, you post it, whatever it may be, you’re responsible for it. Enough said.
Photos, videos, and other content posted should involve men who appear to be of age. Any link/poster that sends images, videos, etc. of those who appear to be below acceptable age will be removed. This results in an instant ban for life
This is designed for male haircutting, and males should be the subject of the haircut. Females should not be the subject of the haircut in posts, photos, and discussions, however, females are free to join and discuss our common interests.
No sexual posts allowed. No political posts allowed.
In terms of common sense, do not post replies to such videos or photos saying things like “sexy handsome man without hair” or “better ####ing shave it next time” or any other suggestive or inappropriate comments. This only does many things. It makes the user remove the video due to being “creeped out” by said comments, look to see where the user found their video (and can see terms searched, such as headshaving, male haircut, and even links from this board). It only brings out a negative view of our community and makes us more noticeable, rather than keeping it quiet. Keeping it quiet is best, it allows us to continue sharing content without people starting to think “will I get creepy people send me stuff”. To sum it up, don’t be a creep on other people’s videos. Saying you look good such as “nice haircut” is acceptable; saying “you look sexy handsome with that new haircut :-*” is unacceptable. I cannot control what you post on other websites, but please keep your true comments to yourself, or as we often see, “This video has been removed by the user” will pop up. Please use proper judgment to keep the videos posted public for all to see and enjoy.
In addition, please try to do your best to provide reference to what content is being presented. The internet is wide, I understand that. But if you are going to post a YouTube link, write a quick thing next to the link (moptop shorn) or reference where you got an image from (i.e., post a link and the image) so we can see it easier if there is problem. Only goes to help us out more!
Be civil on the board. We’re all grown mature (hopefully) men. Let’s keep it mature and civil on here.
Be smart about what you post! If you use proper judgment, it will generally be fine. Just consider these rules before posting.
Any problems and questions, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I tried to make these rules fair and understanding. They are only here to make the best for the continuation of our community. Any comments or problems or suggestions, please message me or post here.
