That, gentleman, is what I had today.  I have never, in my life, had such a great experience at a barber shop, nor have I had such a great haircut.  He starts off with a shoulder massage, which was unique to my experiences.  Then he cut my hair, paying extra attention to the spots where I have a cowlick and where my hair stands at an awkward angle when long.  He then trimmed up my sideburns and neck.  After that, in an unexpected twist, he pulls out a straight razor, applies some warm shaving cream, and shaves the back of my neck.  Then he pulls out a brush to wipe off all the cut hair, and I am immersed in a cloud of manly scented Clubman's talc powder.  He then applied Bay Rum aftershave (which I thought smelled amazing and I need to know where I can get some of it for my personal collection -- I didn't think to ask him). 

I will never go anywhere else for a cut as long as this man is still in business.

Where can I get Clubman's talc powder and Bay Rum aftershave?  Any clues?

The best haircut is one you get in the high summer when you let your hair grow too long and you get a good high and tight it could be 100* outside and you feel like your head is in the freezer. The best part of a haircut is the razor trim especially when the barber rubs in the Bay Rum aftershave makes you want a shave. While you are at Sally's be sure to pick up some Sally Hansons Hard as Nails to use as head cement for tying your flies. 

Sounds like a traditional barbershop.  Congratulations on finding this treasure, they're getting harder to find.

 

Now you understand why I so often recommend them for men, on this site.  That's what it's SUPPOSED to be like!

I hope this barber doesn't retire anytime soon, he's been in business for something like 35-40 years. Even if I move to the other side of the city, I'll be driving over here for a cut.

Is it a one-man shop?  Or, are there other barbers, as well?  Shops with more than one barber can maintain continuity more easily, when the "old man" finally retires.

I'm pretty sure it's just a one man shop.
