THE FEAR OF GETTING A HAIRCUT
Tonsurephobia is the fear of getting a haircut. This something Samson had, for sure, but it is also something to a lesser extentsome men fear when they enter a barber shop. This anxiety is increasingly the case when you get a little older. Perhaps you feel like you don’t want to mess things up too much by asking for anything different.
You don’t want to look like an idiot by bringing in a picture. But you also simply don’t know the terminology and what to ask for when you come in. “It can be difficult for some men to know exactly what to ask for in a barber shop but that is why we are here to help”, says Andrew Kozlov, the Director of Men’s Grooming Ireland, – “We take a lot of factors into consideration when a man comes in, everything from the shape of their face, the texture of their hair and even the shape of their crown and skull.”
As a 40-year old man who had never heard of a fade before last week, and hated asking what way I wanted my hair, these words came as a welcome relief and clearly marked out the difference between going to an appropriately trained professional and someone who ‘cuts hair’ for a living. Think about it for a second, you wouldn’t hire a plumber and then tell him how to fix your sink, you just want it fixed – and for the likes of me, going to a barber and showing him the right way to cut my hair and what product to put into it seems ridiculous.
Andrew pointed out straight-away that I was using the wrong product, wax, which was too weighty on my hair and by the end of the day was leaving my hair greasy. After a superb haircut, Andrew showed me a powder which would give my hair volume and he used a tiny amount of wax on the ends of my hair. My eyes were finally open, and my tonsurephobia faded. This is the difference between a barber and a great barber!
