EXLOVER:I love what you wrote up there but I as a person learnt tailoring and it really helped me when I was in unilorin.
Tailoring (to me) has an advantage that you can collect clothes and give your clients days or weeks depending on when you have opportunity to sew unlike barbing that you cannot ask your customers to drop their heads

I'm a tailor. if you like quick money choose barbing. People will always barb hair at least once in two weeks. And you are sure of minumum of 1k a day. My Uncle na barber.
While tailor, *smiles* anytime anyday. Depends on your packaging and marketing. Even if you don't earn per day but when you earn you earn big. I made 10k this month from nose mask sales, I just recycled pieces of fabrics and market it.
My boss that owns a fashion house where I work earns nothing less than 100k a month. He sew one senator for 8k.
But tailoring requires cool head, ability to relax and learn and a creative mindset.

They are both good to go, but personally I think tailoring has an edge considering the fact that everyone wears clothes, nevertheless if you're good barber, you'll still make it well, good news is FCMB are offering a chance to #DoSomethingEpic, your ideas might just come to reality
|Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by EXLOVER(m): 8:36pm On Aug 01|

|Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by Originalsly: 10:13pm On Aug 01|
Hmmm.... it depends. Must it be one?.... plan on both. Barbing is a quick and less costly start up. If you have that kind hand skill then start with barbing. Get more than one clipper.... varying sizes... hair sprays... brushes ... and equipment sanitizers. Practice on local youths... small charge since you be experimenting on their heads! Go to You Tube.... learn techniques and up to date styles. Wherever you're based... find out average prices... charge a bit less to establish yourself and build customer base. Learn to cut "straight hair" as well so the Chinese etc can also become customers.
On tailoring..... think not so much about people coming to you. Think about designing a d sewing clothes... having a label... and selling online and in stores.
|Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by Thonee(m): 10:31pm On Aug 01|
Choose the one that you have passion for and master it, both are lucrative and you can make good money based on ur location and no:6.
|Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by Yinksy09: 10:33pm On Aug 01|
Both but depends on why, what and how you intend to use that skill.
Also Find the right financial solutions tailored to your needs.
|Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by golddare: 11:36pm On Aug 01|
Barbing, everyone barbs once or twice a week not everyone sews clothes in a month.
|Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by immaq8(f): 1:15am On Aug 02|

Brunosamel:I like your spirit brother. Please I want to acquire the skill, can you train me, I reside in Lagos
|Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by olmoRoc: 12:39pm On Aug 02|
you can actually learn both. You can learn barbing in no time. On the other hand, it'd take you quite some time to become a good tailor. So, while you're attending your fashion institute, you'd be already earning some pocket change.
|Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by Brunosamel(m): 1:35pm On Aug 02|
sorry bro I can't teach you because of the distance, am staying in Asia state, umuahia precisely....but you can find someone there in lagos.... scrutinize the person skill very well, there are some people that there hand a good and crafty, more of artistian, find such personal to train you....

|Re: Barbing Vs Tailoring Which One Is Advisable To Learn? by mivepa: 3:06pm On Aug 04|
Actually, I would recommend tailoring.
Why? You ask.
Well, while barbing is a great career or business avenue it has a zoned nature, meaning you become a champion mostly only within your immediate locality. Business success today does not only depend on how much profit you make on each actual SALE or haircut, but also on how much POPULARITY and REACH your business is able to garner within the shortest possible period of time.
In the light of the above, tailoring which I preferably call, "Fashion designing" has an edge over barbing business.
Advantages of Tailoring over Barbing business
1. Zoned Contact Nature:
Barbing is a 'physical-contact' and zoned business. You need to actually be with the client in order to cut their hair.
In practical terms, a Barber in Lagos may not be able to barb a client in Abuja because of various constraints. Even if your client is rich and can afford to buy you a return flight ticket, still this will put too much undue pressure both on you and your clients having to travel thousands of kilometers over every haircut request.
Tailoring / fashion designing on the other hand can be done as a 'packaged' non-physical-contact business. For instance, a Tailor can get a wonderful dress made for any client anywhere and at even the shortest notice, once he/she gets the vital statistics (Body measurements) of the client.
It makes no economic sense for a Barber in Lagos to advertise his/her services to clients in other states in the country. His target will most likely be clients within his immediate locality or at most, within Lagos. Any more than that, unforeseen travel and hotel accommodation issues begin to set in.
However, a Fashion designer or Tailor can freely showcase his/her designs and fashion concepts on social media such as Instagram and Facebook where foreign orders and contracts are likely to be landed easily.
Since Tailoring can be operated as a packaged business, using standard available sizes for clothing items (All those size 41, 44 stuffs we are familiar with), he or she can sew as much number and varied sizes of clothing items (Shirts, Trousers, Caps, Buba, Agbada, Bubu etc) as required, package them and ship anywhere in the world without ever having met the client physically, as far as payments terms have been agreed upon.
3. eCommerce advantage.
I do not need to write too much on this as it is quite obvious.
A Barber may not be able to have an eCommerce website for his or her business. How will clients order his barbing services online? Well, it is possible though, but will be rather clumsy because it will mean he must travel all over the place to fufil every single haircut order!
For the Tailor or Fashion design expert however, this is like paradise to him or her.
He could easily take lovely images of his stock, place them on his eCommerce website for sale and next moment, orders are rolling in.
When those orders come in, he or she only needs the services of logistics partners (Package delivery companies) to fulfill the orders.
The beautiful thing is, while those orders are on their way out, he remains in (shop, home, office, anywhere!) and is able to focus on taking his business to the next level without undue distractions traveling around to fulfill orders like the Barber.
4. Enhanced Social/Political Connections:
As a Fashion designer, if your work and designs are great, you have a much greater chance of becoming a well known BRAND in the fashion society easily, atleast within the country for a start.
You may be invited to join fashion contests or contracted to design attires for beauty pageants and celebrities. In the fashion world, your brand name precedes you and travels to distant places even before you dreamt of ever getting to those places yourself. Except your designs are nothing to write home about, great designs advertise themselves and hence, your profile grows naturally, so does your profits and connections.
The fashion industry is the best place to connect with the who-is-who in the society, no matter your religion, color or language. Your fashion design business is one of the few businesses that will bring you face to face with important personalities and celebrities in the society who also want to flash your wonderful designs before people in their social circle and to the admiration of their friends. At that level, your fashion brand becomes the polished 'Couture' every big guy is talking about.
So, my pick will be....
Well, you guessed it!
By the way, for anyone out there who is also contemplating on what type of business they may venture into with ease, little capital and good gains, I recommend going into the production of daily-need items.
Soap making is a highly rewarding, fast moving and a very easy business requiring very low startup capital, typically N5,000.
It does not require electric power or expensive equipment.
Not everyone will buy a car in the next few months but everyone needs soap!
Get details on how to start this and many more.
For just N1,500 you will get an Empowerment Kit on how to produce and market the following items:
1. Perfumes / Body Spray
