Barbers in the UK can make a decent living, along with hairdressers & nail technicians.
Nowadays thanks to social media these professions have skyrocketed, and their salaries have increased massively over the years.
Here’s how much you can make as a barber in the UK:
Barbers in the UK can make, roughly, around £24,025 per year.
However, some key factors will play a major rule in determining your salary, and those are:
- Your training level
- Your skills
- How many years you’ve worked in this field
- Your reputation
The higher the education level, the pricier your services can be!
Usually, junior barbers can make around £40-£60 per day. You will also get £20 in tips. However, a professional barber can earn up to £1000 per week!
Barbers can also profit from selling hair products that are available at a salon. If you are a salon owner you can probably work under your own rules. On the other hand, freelancing barbers will have to make a deal with their superior if they wish to be paid per hour, or per commission.
In the end, you should work 5-6 days a week anywhere from 6-10 hours. With this schedule, you can easily earn £18,000 to £24,000 in a year!
