Learn both, start with the less cost-effective one, then open up the other with time.

barbing is better, you get work daily no matter the economic situation, people will still cut their hair.

it's not a must besides that market is already saturated and every undergraduate with no actual IT skill (programming) seems to be switching to that thing its even better he learns barbing that way he can be earning if he learns fast enough

lol. Charges depends on your clientele. A barber/tailor in mushin can't charge same price with one in lekki.

The barbing business could be of help to you even as a student because I know you still got great ambition

Considering time factors
Barbing can take you 6 months
Fashion design can take at least 2years
Considering Money
Fashion is among the top 5 demanding skills in the world.

Tailoring of course...

You don see anybody barb hair of 100k?
Have you thought about what the cost of sale for both will be? Barbing can make a higher net income than the tailoring

Tailoring master the skill with good parkaging you will go places just think big

Both are lucrative, only that our lazy concept of what "handiwork" is has put the majority of artisans in difficult situation or at the mercy of their "customers".
Imagine a designer that look beyond what customers bring buh design/brand and designer shirts and whatever to the market in dozens.
Modified:
Imagine a barber that looks beyond barbing...that understands hitherto what fashion is. With that he will look beyond barbing and venture into what fashion is.

My opinion, they are both good.
Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by Godsonkemz(m): 3:37pm On Aug 01
Barbing. On a norm one can do without visiting a tailoring shop but you can't do without barbing your hair.

Besides tailoring or fashion design is becoming so competitive that for one to remain afloat, must stay update with the trend in the market.

I don't agree with this
Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by angelfallz(m): 3:40pm On Aug 01
I believe the best way to get real and authentic opinions is to ask both barbers and tailors on this forum their challenges with their line of work, also the gratification they enjoy from their work.

Barbing, ready-made and china-imported cloth is really competing/destroying tailoring also some people may not sew cloth more than once per year why they wear ones in thier wardrobe for years

Barbering has no major competitor, and guys must barb at least once a month


Anyone you choose ensure you are good at it
let him go for barbing.

Since lock down till now only mending of old clothes,mercy my good neighbor at yard is already tired, people are no longer coming with new clothes,the girl sef Don enter market go find sales girl work begin do
