Does touching your face automatically guarantee Acne breakouts?

Well, I'm generally a neat freak and I don't think I have touched, stroked or leaned on my face in about 3 months and my face is generally clear. Just one query though; I have to get my hair cut later today and the barber is most likely touch my face, it's inevitable as that's how he works best, with full control. So, will this mean I would get a breakout? Or will washing my face immediately after save me?

Just wondering if its guaranteed or avoidable. Or am I simply worrying too much?

I think it really depends on the person. I can rub my face a bit during the day and not break out? But if I squeeze any part of my face? Bam. Zit in the same place.

but don't worry about the haircut. It's one day.
