Including psychology, and small talking. Seeing that customers are more likely to open up to them?

They do not take classes for it. They learn interpersonal skills in everyday life. Most importantly, they learn it on the job.

No. But I kinda think friendly people are attracted to the jobs.

My sister in law was learning to cut hair, all a many years ago. They were taught that they have to do small talk and their breath and body shouldn’t stink. But she’s a pretty awesome person and chatty. Part of their training and practice was working on inmates at a local prison. She totally forgot herself and asked the man ‘So, how do you like living in ‘XXX’ city?’ The guy moved his head and gave her such a look. She still laughs at herself when she tells this story.

I’m a part-time bartender.

Aside from legal licensing & basic mixology, none of us really get the kind of interpersonal skills training you’re thinking of.

It’s a talent you bring to the job – Or not.

Most hair stylists freak me out no matter how caring they seem to be. Just a personal phobia.
