Name on the Mirror

Anne Moratto | December 15, 2014 | 10:24 AM

The shop I am working in has the barber’s names on the corner of the opposite wall mirrors.  I am the new guy in the shop.  My name is not on the mirror.  Yet.

Clients ask about the missing name.  I have taken to telling them that as the “new guy” I am on probation.  I explain the policy is that you do not get your name on the mirror until you have done 1,000 haircuts.

I figure when I get to about 850 haircuts I will go to the store and buy the letters.

Stay tuned.  I will post a picture when my name goes up on the mirror.

Happy Clippering.
