Babershop: The Business of Beauty for Men of Class


Barbing business is a profitable venture and one that grows into a franchise if well managed as any business of beauty or make up is in great demand always.
A good barbershop will always have customers, even in a recession. Human hair will not stop growing just because the economy isn’t.
The average man cares about his look and visits the barber’s shop every week, parting with between N200 and N500 as service cost, thereby spending between N800 and N2,000 in a month.
Therefore, we can safely assume that a barbershop with an average of 100 customers per month, can earn between N80, 000 and N500,000 every month.
