By | Barber industry, Business | No Comments

In today’s society, jobs are hard to come by, and careers are almost going out of style. One thing that’s not going out of style, however, is peoples desire to look good and be, well, stylish.
For that reason alone, it should be no surprise that one of the industry’s currently thriving is the world of beauty and beauty care: barber shops, salon, personal grooming and styling products. These stores, products and services are in high demand, and in all likelihood will continue to be so.
In January of this year, an article was published on complex.com indicating the vast amount of money the men’s grooming industry was set to bring in this year, estimating it at over $21 billion. In September, statisticbrain.com released analytics on the barber industry in the U.S. There are over 400 thousand barbers in the U.S., bringing it a combined total of $1.8 million.
With statistics like that, it’s easy to see that the world of beauty care is not limited to women alone, and is a thriving, booming and growing industry, and one that is surely to be that way for years to come.
