Why You Should Go To A Barbershop

Barber Shop


During the prime time of barbershops between the 1880s to the 1940s, a man knew he could simply walk in, be treated to a tailored and friendly service and walk out feeling like a new man. This golden age of barbershops embodied candy-striped poles, leather recliner chairs, glossy floors, razor cuts, colourful glass-blown tonic bottles, mixed aromas and most importantly, it represented a stellar service that fast became a gracious culture.


When you visit a barbershop, you’ll surely be taken care of by a dedicated barber who not only knows how to cut a man's hair, but is a grand master or clippers also - the secret tool for best cutting a man's hair. A cosmetologist will not use clippers nor the other essential tools required for a man's hair, because their general services are better suited to women. It's rare for a man to request balayage or a perm, but what every man can agree on needing, is a smooth shave. Most barbers will use a good old-fashioned single-blade razor, and all you have to do is sit back in your recliner and enjoy your sweetest shave yet.


If you’ve ever seen Tim Story's Barbershop (2002) comedy, then you'd probably have a pretty awesome image in mind. Exchanging stories, chatting about life and being in the company of other men means no awkward silences or limitations that can sometimes occur in a unisex salon. In the same way that having a cosmetologist comforts women, men find the same pleasantry in having a barber. A barbershop is the quintessential environment for men to simply bond and socialise over a cup of coffee, enjoy some light reading and revel in the bliss of having a sentimental, manly and classic experience. And now, it should come as no surprise that the business of barbershops is booming!
