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
once a month bawo lol

You can actually learn both if you so desire... The one that gives your joy can become your mainstay.

Barbing vs Tailoring which is advisable to learn for a 20 year old guy. All opinions are acceptable

Sorry to digress, but I'll advise you go for hair stylist popularly known as hair dresser. The way females are rushing to guys who are into this business and are good at it is huge.
You'll make your cool cash everyday cool

Tailoring is a creative and more profitable if you will bend down and focus on it

Barbing is also good but not really profitable unless you are ready to charge less for more patronage, remember you needs generator no matter how small it will be

You can learn both and get a big shop to run the two

But if you can't get a big shop, a container will be ok if you learn any of them

As a private school teacher, I discovered that I actually belong to the category of unemployed persons.

I decided to go learn tailoring (female), and I saw a lady, who brought materials for 5 different clothes. My Oga charged her 10k for each, (according to my Oga, the lady customer is his wife's colleague, so he charged her as low as 10k per cloth.)
I don't know if a barber could make that 50k within the 6 days it took my Oga to complete the clothes.

I think tailoring is better.

I learnt how to barb when I was in jss 3, my brother owns a barbbing shop... This year is making it 14 years since I started barbbing... I have trained not less than 7 boys.....

It really helped me to go through the university, graduated last year December will be going for service next year....

I can attest if you learn how to barb you will never regret it, it is very lucrative, even during the lockdown i was making dope.... you will never go hungry in life if you know what you doing.... As am typing this I have already made 6k today

I saving up to open my own barbing shop and empower young adults cuz it is the way to go....

All thanks to my brother whom helped my life, the boy never goes broke.....

Says who? Then who are the men giving us job? Any job have its potential customers and whatever you do, be good at it.
laosy:
You should opt for barbing as a guy, unless you want to sow ladies wear too cuz guys barely sow.
We buy ready made jeans and top and we're good. Barbing on the other hand is easier to learn and set up within a short time, and definitely people barb daily but people doesn't sow daily.

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

And ppl don't wear clothes in tough economic conditions.

If you are prepared to learn and be good at it, go for tailoring. In addition you need to be social but if you are not social or you are an "introvert " go for barbing
Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by chatinent(m): 4:12pm On Aug 01
Both have their prons and cons. For example, many people don't patronize tailors, they go for already-made clothes. Why? It's cost-effective. The cost to buy materials and sew a cloth can get you more clothes. The capital to start is a bit much after learning too because you'll have to find a good location (high rent) and buy machines. There are successful tailors but believe me, they've gone a very long way.
.
In barbing, after learning, you must get a gen., a shop and equipment. Being successful can really take a while but it's worth more than nothing.
.
I will suggest few things. For tailoring, also trade already-made clothes. This way, you can gain from two ways.
.

In barbing, try hiring female hair-dressers (pay by commission).

.
I wish you success!

Just be good at anyone you learn. With that you'd have many customers. Both are quite lucrative.
