How many inches is a trim?
A “trim” to most stylists, though, is the codeword for taking off enough to eliminate damage. Because everyone’s hair is different, a trim can mean a quarter of an inch for some and up to several inches for others.
Can I show my barber a picture?
There’s a catch though — the best photo you can bring in to show your barber is a picture of yourself after a haircut that you really liked. A picture of someone else’s hair doesn’t take into account your hair’s individual traits, like thickness, texture, and hair line.

Why do barbers turn you away from the mirror?
You will be turned away from the mirror while the barber will be doing his job as opposed to the hairstylist who will be facing you to the mirror. The reason for this is that the barber does clipper work on the back of your head, and uses the mirror to check his work for flaws.

- Scrub tops and bottoms BLACK ONLY.
- Under shirts that are solid colors (white, gray, or black)
- Tennis shoes, or Dress shoes that completely cover top.
- School T-shirt.
- Earrings, necklaces, or scarfs that keep to your body and do not dangle.
