Barbers have memories like an elephant. As you visit a first rate barber regularly they will become familiar with the intricacies of your hair and the contours of your head and will know how to style and cut your hair to perfection. You will be able to walk in and simply ask for “the usual.”
The perfect barbershop is an oasis of gentlemanly calm amidst the white noise of contemporary life. Ringing iPhones, endless meetings, zombie like colleagues, other demands on your time and space and not to mention sanity…sometimes a man needs an escape. A restorative sanctuary if you will.
Behold Barber Culture: half gentlemen’s club half psychiatric couch but all self indulgence. A place one can sit, think, and just be. To top this off you emerge as a new and improved you, with a dapper haircut or a close cutthroat shave, smelling good, feeling tingly, and looking immaculate. Ready to face the beeping phone again. Pampered by hot towels and aglow from a relaxing yet rejuvenating experience. The world seems a more tolerable place.
