Offering Facials in Your Barber Practice

Most barbers provide shaving services, so why not include a facial with it?

Face treatments are not only a relaxing experience; they also serve a purpose by improving the health and appearance of skin.

Even the most basic facial routine can help:

  • Brighten the skin
  • Prevent acne
  • Reduce the appearance of aging
  • Help fight sun damage
  • Reduce razor burn and dry skin

 

Skin treatments have many practical benefits as well, such as a smoother, cleaner shave when properly exfoliated and moisturized. Providing facial treatments are a fairly new territory for barber shops; some barber schools are even adding facial courses to their curriculum. Traditionally viewed as a salon treatment, high-end barber shops have begun offering facials for men.

Can You Offer Skin Care Treatments With A Barber License?

In most states, offering facial treatments falls within the scope of a barber license. However, there are some restrictions. So long as the services you provide are non-invasive and do not involve any chemical exfoliates or peels, only topical moisturizers and other natural agents, you should be in the clear to offer facials without any additional licensing. Please check your local state boards for any clarification.
