Apparently, when you're cutting hair, your customer keeps telling you how to do your job. Dad didn't like people telling him what to do.

He got into auto body repair instead.
I mentioned this to my mother and she corrected me about one important fact. My dad didn't quit hairdressing because he liked doing his own thing. He quit because he was a terrible hairdresser, and our family would have lived in a cardboard box if we depended on his hairdressing income.
