As back-to-school approaches, I started thinking what other occasions do people need a proper haircut.? I realized that there are many monumental times throughout the year and your life when you need a haircut, not to mention those unexpected occasions when you have to look your best. Having open communication with your barber is essential at these times more than ever.
Many people don’t realize how important it is to let your barber know why you’re getting this haircut. For example you come in on a busy Tuesday and you’re getting married on Wednesday. This is an important haircut possibly the most important haircut of your life. Therefore you need to tell your barber “I’m getting married tomorrow this haircut has to be flawless”. I guarantee that you’ll see the barber give you a little extra special treatment to make sure your cut is in fact flawless. You come away with great wedding pictures and the barber feels good about being an integral part of your day. The same goes for birthdays, funerals, job interview, that special date, and meeting the parents for the first time.
As a barber I can often tell if a customer needs the haircut for something special, the giveaway is if I haven’t seen him or her in a long time. They usually say…..” I didn’t have time to come down here” or “I know I haven’t seen you in awhile but I need that onyx cut, that’s why I’m back.” That’s when my hand starts tingling and I know it’s magic time. You want the best experience for your special occasion, so make sure communication is a big part of your cut once you sit in the chair.

Free cuts for kids 12 years of age and under every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday until Monday, September 29th, 2014. We didn’t cut as many kids in Toronto as we wanted to so we are extending it to the entire month of September!
With the up coming school year, Onyx Barbers is on a mission. Now before I get into the details, I’ll have you know that the following information will be shocking to all of you but has always been apart of our business. The idea is free. Not the idea itself but the movement. To give something for nothing.
Free has been apart of Onyx Barbers for a long time. Free gift bags and cheers for new customers. Free cuts on your birthday. Free cuts on customer appreciation days. Free Sundays back in the summer of 2003, and now our biggest gift of all. Are you ready for this? Free cuts for kids 12 year of age and under every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday & Thursday in September.
That’s right! We want to make you smile right in time for back to school. Back in 2001 we cut for charity in a Brampton recreation centre and I’ll never forget the feeling of appreciation we received. Since then we’ve been addicted to giving and it’s time we scratch that itch in a big way! We know that a difference can be made in our city if we could cut every kid’s hair for free. Just imagine an entire generation of kids with a higher sense of self, self esteem and pride in grooming with that financial burden lifted off of the family. We are venturing to start this trend as of Monday August 18th and Wednesday, August 20th. Bring your kids in and send them to school feeling and looking fresh, the cost is on us! We need to take care of the youth. Let’s groom our city one kid at a time.
Proper government issued id (birth certificate) must be presented before the cut for each child. Each child must be accompanied by an adult.
Peace and hair grease.
