SKILLS Profile – Episode 3 “The Dream”

 

In this episode, our CEO @barber.mo talks about how he pursued his dreams despite the limited support of the people around him when he started working for someone else. In his point of view, you are the only one responsible for your dream so don’t expect anyone to do it for you.

 

He stressed that the most important thing that you need to have is “Experience” and at the same time to have your own “Vision” or purpose. And even when you have both you still need to convince someone to support you on that Dream which is never easy, and always neglected.

 

Barber Mo stressed that the most important thing that you need to have is “Experience” and a “Vision” or purpose.

Most people decide to do things based on what is good for them not what is good for you or to anyone, You cannot ask or tell people to do something just because it is wrong on your point-of-view and it is with that thought that he didn’t want to work anymore for someone else and that he wanted to do something which is bigger and greater.

 

Since he saw that the future that he envisioned is not with someone else but only by himself then he started to plan and made move by doing a list of everything that what the client needs and what he wanted to avoid as well as all the bad experiences that he faced and if ever he will open his very own shop in the future he will be ready.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 3 “IS HAIR STRAIGHTENING/ RELAXING A GOOD OPTION?”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber  @barber.mo talks about what is the Straightening/Relaxing Treatment, and should you choose it over the Keratin Hair Treatment? Let’s find out!

 

Different Types of Relaxers used in Hair Straightening/ Relaxing

Different types of Relaxers and chemicals used in the Hair Straightening/ Relaxing Treatment Process

 

The Hair Straightening/Relaxing Treatment is a type of treatment that uses chemicals such as Sodium, Lithium, and Guanidine Hydroxide to straighten your hair. The chemical components have pretty mild effects on the hair but it is very severe on the scalp.

 

The process of the Hair Straightening/ Relaxing Treatment is it reduces the curl by breaking down the hair strand and reforming the hair’s components by chemicals which softens very tight or kinky curls. The risk of doing the Hair Straightening is if done the wrong way could damage your scalp or burn your hair.

The benefits of having the Hair Straightening Treatment is it makes the hair more manageable, making it straighter, and saves you a lot of time in styling your hair as well as using the blow-dry and using less hair product.

 

If you are planning or interested to do your Hair Straightening Treatment in the future make sure to do the following tips and advice for your safety.

 

Hair Consultation Before Doing the Keratin Hair Treatment

Doing the Hair Consultation is Very Important before you do any Hair Treatment/Coloring Procedure

 

  1. Find a professional who has a good background in doing the Hair Straightening/ Relaxing Treatment.
  2. Make sure to do a consultation first if your scalp or hair is capable of the Treatment.
  3. Inform your stylist about all your past history in the last few months and if you did any hair straightening/relaxing as this could affect the results during the process.
  4. Make sure to follow the advice of your stylist after doing the Hair Straightening/ Relaxing Treatment in order to prolong d maintain the effects of the Treatment.

It is advisable to have the Keratin Hair Treatment done after the Hair Straightening Treatment so that you can treat your hair and give it a much healthier and straighter look, as well as combining both treatments can lengthen the duration of the treatment. As normally the Keratin lasts for 2-3 months and the Straightening lasts 6-8 weeks.

SKILLS Profile – Episode 2 “The Struggle”

 

In this episode our CEO Barber Mo talks about his experience when he arrived in Dubai and how much he struggled with the way people look at them and the industry that he is on as well as the experience that led people to not trust the barbers or stylist.

 

In his perspective being a barber is more than just cutting hair but is a form of “Art” and a form of “Counseling” to help the people to be more comfortable and not make them feel like they are just a client and they are just barbers that have to cut your hair, and that’s it.

 

Barber Mo discusses how the people (clients) view them as Barbers and why the Barbers struggle to deliver the client’s expectations.

He stressed the importance of understanding the client to avoid instilling more fear and disappointment, that was the challenge for him as he was working as a freelancer before but when he started to apply for a job that’s when he found out about the truth in his industry.

 

Barber Mo of Skills Dubai Barbershop
He was shocked to find out the weird questions that his boss was asking.

The most common question that every boss or interviewee asks is “How much money can you make for me in a month”? and next to that would be “How fast can you cut hair?”

 

He was shocked to hear about these questions and nobody even bothered to ask if “How much can you make my clients satisfied?”

 

That’s when he understood why the people struggle to trust their barbers and why the barbers are struggling to advise their client, because of the misunderstanding as well as the expectations of both parties.
