I have long frequented my local barber shop, but when I went I asked for the typical clipper guard 2 haircut that I got at the local unisex shop. After reading the AoM book (finally) I decided to ask for a real haircut. Guys, don't be afraid to ask. My barber was THRILLED that he was getting to be an actual, you know, barber. I got a razor cut and it's by FAR the best haircut I've ever had!
