The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for barbers will grow about faster than the average for all careers through 2024. As the U.S. population continues to grow, demand will increase for basic hair-care services. Additionally, many job openings will also result from the need to replace retired workers. The outlook for this profession will be different for various cities, states, and regions of the country. Demand will be high in areas of the country where there are fewer barbers, and lower in areas where a high number of barbers are doing business.
