You have a captive one-person (or more) audience to discuss Bitcoin.

Consider tipping in Bitcoin to get them started.

Lot's of talking happens at barber shops and hair dressers.

I assume that you are wanting people who have bitcoin to tip their barber in order to get the barber interested in bitcoin.

I am not sure this would work because the barber would have no way to give you a BTC address if they do not already have a wallet setup. You would probably say that you could give them a paper wallet, however they would potentially show  the private key in a paper wallet to someone that should not be trusted and end up with the bitcoin gone. This would not only mean they would probably not want to use bitcoin again for a while, but also that they would be out a tip that you intended for them to get

Depends on the location...more-so in populated cities.

i.e., detroit, new york, chicago, etc.

Pretty much this.

Depends on the country you are in - In my country, most barbers don't have access to smartphones and the tipping custom is absent.

I've just asked people to download a wallet and then transfer the bitcoin on the spot. Barbershops work particularly well because there is usually a lot of conversation happening between the barber and his/her client. You have time to really explain Bitcoin while they're cutting your hair, and by the time your haircut is done they've downloaded a wallet and are ready to receive a payment.

Even better, they may end up talking about it to their clients instead of the football game.

I got my hair cut for bitcoin in Seattle last month.
There is actually a hair stylist who accepts bitties in Fremont. I was happy with my hair not that i care really. I just wanted to use my coins. Cheesy

People my age has no idea what Bitcoin is, let alone barbers which tend to be older. Hair dressers are usually girls that dont care about tech. I dont have the patience to go around teaching people to be honest. They would probably dont care or think its a joke, that im giving them monopoly money or something.
They will care once BTC goes really mainstream.
