If you’ve had more than several run-ins with a less than satisfying haircut over the years, a great barber may be just the change you’re looking for.
Trained in the art of male grooming, covering everything from hair cuts, to scalp massages and proper cut throat shaves, you’ll soon be bidding adieu to that $15 shopping mall hack job, and hello to effortless style in less time than it takes you to say, “give me the David Beckham”.
The traditional barbershop rose to fame somewhere back in the late 1800s. Known as the place where men and boys, young and old, could go to have their hair shaved, cut or styled, barbershops also became the place to hang out, swap stories and indulge in a bit of manly discourse.
Picture luxe marble counters, padded barber chairs, an array of shiny, silver grooming tools, as well as that all too familiar blue, red and white barber pole out front.
Today, modern barber shops retain that old-world charm, with a bit of modern grooming technique thrown in for good measure.
‘So why choose a barber over a hairdresser?’, we hear you ask. Well, if you’re a guy, it’s pretty simple. Barbers know men, and they sure know men’s hair.
Unlike most hairdressers, who are generally trained in looking after nothing more than the hair on your head, barbers know how to take care of your facial hair, too. Think beard, neck, moustache and everything in between.
The art of male grooming might seem simple enough, but when it comes to simplicity, there’s actually quite a large margin for error. Best leave your next trim or shave to the professionals, wouldn’t you agree?
