Clipperguy Business Building from A to Zoot - Letter L is for Listen

Letter Letter L is for Listen - In my time working with the chains we were very focused on re-dos.  Clients who can back for a tweak or a fix of a haircut were providing an opportunity to learning, growth and customer service.  The bottom line was always the same.  Over 90% of the re-dos were always traced back to consultation errors, not technical cutting errors.  Our cutters knew how to do it right if they took the time to understand what the client was asking for.  Listening is still more important than cutting.
