Average Barber Haircut Prices
The average price for a haircut in Ottawa is $35 ($42 with beard) and takes 45 minutes.
Can you afford to buy a house with your barber salary?
This will take 8,000 haircuts for the average Ottawa Barber/Shop charging $35 on 50% commission splits (not accounting for any expenses).
8,000 haircuts in 45 minute appointment slots is over 100 cutting hours per week.These numbers are hard enough for barbershops with 5+ barbers to reach let alone 1.
🚨I'm not telling you to stop cutting hair, I'm telling you to work SMARTER and not harder.
Hard Working Barber:
40+ haircuts took 35 hours of work and we got paid $2,000 (total) for them
Smart Working Barber:

Smart Working Barber 1 day = Hard Working Barber 1 week
Which side would you rather be on?
The barber market is shifting and there has never been a better time to leverage your skills to make more money behind the chair. If you feel any of the following:
- Not making enough money
- No time for yourself, family or friends
- Not taking care of body and health
- No time to grow business
- Overworking/Burn Out
It's time to design your business to work around your life, not your life to work around your business.
