Plan
Without a valid plan in place, it would be almost impossible to start a successful barbering business. You must first set aside what your budget is and what the startup and ongoing costs would be for operations. All of this information must also be tied with how much services will cost, labour, furniture, etc. Another factor to consider is determining who your target market is.
