That 500k can set up a good barbing saloon. But seek advice grim those who have been in the business for long...and don't put all your investment in one basket...

I will prefer barbing...and again...what does the guy good at...? his talent also will help. him...don't just box the guy up with two options...

Go do tiling, this days there are more Barber than tillers, cos those guys doing tilling don turn Yahoo and are getting few apprentice, you know people are building more houses than before so u could get customer very fast, but barbing there are to many Barbers cos is a fine boy job, some are even Yahoo boys and can spent more than a million setting up there shop and barbing with the same low price as yours, they get more customers than you, and you be frustrated and later close ur shop. Think wisely

Barbing is okay as you'll invest the money you got from your brother.


Tiling will make you spend a little from the money to pay for the apprenticeship, only to spend the rest for trans and misc.

Good day everyone no need for a long story. A friend seriously need your advice.
If you have to advise someone, between learning tiling (tiles work) and Barbing (cut hair)
which will you have advise the person to learn.
please you have to also state your reason just help out.
Please I am begging you to also advise like a brother please.
The guy is 28yrs old, he gat 500k already from his bro in Canada, but confused in the one to learn. He is a married man with 1 kid.
If you don't mind travelling once in a while go for tilling. It will give you enough money to take care of yourself and your family and you maybe lucky to travel out of the country with that skill in the future, that is if you are focused and commit your time to learn the work properly and you have a dream to step out of naija. But if you are the type that want to be with your family every day at least after work, then settle for barbing.

Most Nigerian guys don't cut their hair again. They go about with bushy dusty hair. To them it's fashion.

Go for tiling. Everyday people are building houses and the amount got in one tiling contract outweighs the amount got in cutting 5000 people's hair.
Note that the highest a Nigerian man would pay to cut his hair is N300 and most of them don't cut their hair again.
You and sense have nothing in common..

Na barbing sure pass. You get paid daily, weekly, bi weekly or monthly. At the very worst you'll get a customer a day which is a sure N300 to see tomorrow. For tiling, the contracts are long. You'll work for days or weeks for a pay day at the end.

N300 kwa, man don suffer, Miss it depends on the location and how good the guy his, the least in my area is N500.
Re: Tiler Or Barbing, by anoyny1: 9:54pm On Jun 09
His brother in Canada can help me with a skill trade program if he can learn more tiling. It's lucrative in Canada....

Hmm.. barbing is less stressful
Re: Tiler Or Barbing, by Nannito190(m): 9:57pm On Jun 09
Tiling can fetch him money. But, remember is based on contract. Sometimes it may take up to 1 -3 months before one could get another tiling job depending on the geographical location of the person. Nevertheless, is still a good skill to acquire.

On the other hand, people must have their haircut. But the saloon must be located in a busy and well crowded environment in order to gain more patronage.

But all the same, both skills are good. It depends on the choice of the person who's learning the skills.

As for me, since he's a family man, let him go for barbing for now, perhaps he can go for tiling later on.

Don't learn barbing, barbing is good from 18 to 25, at your age you need a work that can earn you enough to feed a family.

Consider the health challenge as a result of the long standing hours everyday working as a barber. My favorite barber is thinking of quiting and getting barbers work for him because of his lumber pain as a result of long standing hours. He's being in the business for 20yrs, still in his 30s.

Both
Set up a barbing salon and employ one more barber.
Tiling job might not come regularly, in those period when job is not coming you work in your salon together with the other barber.
Other periods when you have tiling job, you leave him to manage the shop.

That's what a guy I know does

All the best

Re: Tiler Or Barbing, by Eddie360(m): 11:07pm On Jun 09
Oga op I'm a professional barber ryt nw but i wont advice u to go with barbing wth 500k
Dis are my reasons:
1. For u to earn much in barbing u need to make ur shop more standard whc ur 500k cannot do dat wth d way barbing things are cost(rent-200k, barbing chair d least one 35k.. let say for three barbers ie 105k,towel warmer 35k, clippers super tapper 35k*3=105, customers waiting sit 45k, mirror 50k×3, television 120k...omo dem plenty ooo electricity,generator,fan or Ac
2.u dnt knw how to barb..those barber go just d turn turn ur investment play
3.barbing business is just to sustain u for awhile cost d will be new saloon always and customers will like to taste it tooo
In ma own opinion just go for ur tilling job if u make enough cash u open saloon whc will be like anoda source of income
