What Makes a Good Barber?

With so many heads of hair in the world, we need a steady stream of barbers to keep us from all looking like cavemen. Therefore, much like coffeeshops, you are never too far away from a barbershop. But what makes a good barber?

Natural talent should never be overlooked and ruled out in favour of experience; but in the same breath, there are some things that cannot be taught and only come with experience.
