It is always truly humbling when I receive emails or messages from other Barber's asking for advice or expressing their appreciation for my small efforts to better the trade of Barbering and improve the beauty industry by promoting good service before good haircuts, and emphasizing faith and family and fellowship as the cornerstones for what we do. It is especially humbling when other Barber's make the time to stop by the Parlor to say hi and to spend some brief time in fellowship, even when in town for just a short amount of time. Thank you to my Barber sister @___tui___ from Texas, who was back in the Bay Area to visit her family. Not only was I happy to meet you and your family, but I'm extremely proud to see another Samoan Barber who is spreading the aloha spirit from behind the chair. May God bless you sis in all that you do as a Barber, and more importantly, in all that you do through your life journey...much aloha to you and yours and I hope you and the family enjoyed your time back in The Bay. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒΊπŸŒ΄β˜€οΈπŸπŸ€™πŸ½

We all use slang, or short hand but it's not an excuse to ignore good grammar. Sets you apart from others. #theartofbeingagentleman #theadventuresofmeandenzo

Gentleman's tip: "Throughout my life, I grew up watching my Dad always romancing my Mom, and in the very simplest of ways that always, always, always put a smile on her face. One of the most consistent things he would do for her is write little love notes, that alway started with "To My Darling Cecilia..". He would make homemade cards for her, drawing flowers all over the cards, and write to her in the most perfect cursive penmanship. These notes and cards were personalized from his heart, made with effort and purpose and love, something that no mass produced store bought card could ever truly convey.
Gentlemen, if you want to win her heart, or keep her heart, then do the things that will earn her heart, because your special woman deserves that extra personalized efforts of love. #theartofbeingagentleman #manup #mjsolofa #mjsolofamensgrooming" β€” @mjsolofamensgrooming @theartofbeingagentleman #newagegents

When I make Jami laugh it seriously feels like an accomplishment to me. #theartofbeingagentleman

from @mjsolofamensgrooming
It's rare that I post photos of my work, as the quality of a haircut (to me) is secondary to the quality of the fellowship shared during the haircut. I've always admitted to being just an average Barber at best, but my lane in Barbering is to always promote the value of good service first, and that's an area I that I feel needs to be improved within our Trade. Now, while I've often preached that a Barber's quality of service should always be better than the quality of their haircut, we as Barber's can't just be outright terrible at cutting hair,...you have to be proficient at your craft and be able to execute almost any haircut with adequacy and confidence. Our perceived value as a Barber is relative and subjective to different client's and what they are looking for, and for some client's there is greater value to be had in receiving a great experience and great service first and foremost, with a good haircut second... but we as Barber's STILL have to deliver on the good haircut part, which should go without saying. So as I continue to promote the importance of good service and relationship building and fellowship with client's in the Trade of Barbering, please remember that it always implies that we as Barber's still have to know what we're doing when standing behind the chair. Just food for industry thought.βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒΊπŸŒ΄β˜€οΈπŸπŸπŸ€™πŸ½

Poor communication is probably the biggest Achilles heel in every relationship, and it's not uncommon for men to be the biggest culprits. But life and love are already complicated, so failing to be honest and truthful to your loved one is a slippery slope that will only compound the problem. We all make mistakes, and almost all of those mistakes have a consequence of some sort. But making a mistake, and then lying about it (and yes, hiding it is also a lie), is a formula for disaster that will only lead to disappointment, distrust, and likely a dissolved relationship when the breach of trust finally surfaces. And it WILL always surface. So keep it simple in life and live, and follow the advice your parents gave you when you were a kid,...always tell the truth!

How to tell your barber what haircut you really want >> http://ruggedyetsmooth.com/2017/04/26/tell-your-barber-hair/ << [or click link in bio]

"Everybody wants to be Batman, nobody wants to be Robin." - MJ Solofa
--------
Michael Jordan won 6 NBA championship titles, and has the rings to show for it, but he couldn't have won them without his supporting cast, most notably his sidekick, Scottie Pippen @scottiepippen. Now as a basketball player growing up, I always dreamed of being "like Mike" just as the old Gatorade commercials would promote, but my game was molded more like Scottie Pippen because I cared less to try and score and cared more to rebound, defend, and distribute,...essentially do all the utility things for the good of the team, without being "the man" on the team. The state of Barbering today, at least by social media standards, promotes a lot of individuality, encouraging everyone to try and be the man, rather than finding value and appreciating being the man behind the man. As a Barber, and even as the owner of my own business, I prefer to be the man behind the man despite being the face of the Brand, because it's more important for me to educate and promote and celebrate my Barbers, hence my chair being in the back corner of the Parlor rather than in the front. I have always told my Barber's, the Parlor is too small for anyone to have an ego, and my hope is to always promote humility and professionalism in the industry, by my example to show that we all can thrive as Barber's simply by being utility team player's contributing to a common goal of good Barbering through great service,...and that can't happen if Barber's put themselves before Barbering, and therefore in front of the client's we serve. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒΊπŸŒ΄πŸπŸ€™πŸ½

Looking forward to closing out the work week strong today in the Parlor, sharing some good fellowship and company with like-minded men who appreciate the value of good old fashioned service. Happy Saturday everyone, and be sure to be appreciative of something or someone today. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒ΄πŸŒΊπŸβ˜€οΈπŸ€™πŸ½

It always sounds so cliche to say that life passes us by so quickly, or that if we blink we'll miss out on so much, but it's a reality that we can easily forget when we're busy with living our daily lives. It had been approximately ten months since my son Savai'i last visited Daddy at work, and comparing these two photos side by side remind me that so much has indeed happened in my personal life and with my family and with my children, for I blinked and 10 months passed me by, and my son went from being a baby boy to the size of man-child. Thank you Lord for the blessing of my family and my healthy children, and may I continue to appreciate these blessings with each blink of an eye that happens henceforth. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈπŸŒ΄β˜€οΈπŸπŸŒΊπŸ€™πŸ½

Barbering without service is nothing more than just shaving faces and cutting hair, and men can do that themselves at home. As Barber's, be sure to incorporate good customer service with your clients, offer them more than what's expected or better than what is the service norm at other Barbershops (or even amongst Barber's in your own shop), and build meaningful relationships because these are the people that will continue to support your business, your family, and who will want to see you grow and succeed. Remember that a client doesn't need our haircuts to pay their bills, but we need their haircuts to pay ours. Pictured here is my apprentice @noe.casares @noe.casares @noe.casares who has, in just three short weeks, already learned the value of why I promote good customer service so highly as the number one building block for any Barber's growth and success in this industry, and in doing so, I'm excited for what the future has in store for him in his journey as a Barber. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈβ˜€οΈπŸπŸŒΊπŸŒ΄πŸ€™πŸ½
