Barbers provide hair styling and beauty services, such as cutting, trimming, shampooing, and styling hair, trimming beards, or giving shaves. Barbers mostly work in a barbershop or salon. Physical stamina is important, because workers are on their feet for most of their shift. Many work part time, and nearly half were self-employed in 2010. All states require barbers to be licensed, with the exception of shampooers. To qualify for a license, candidates must graduate from a state-approved barbering program.
