The Barbershop

It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group.  My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.

Just found this place and LOVE it. I have been a master barber for 20 years and a licensed barber instructor. I love going to work every day because of the atmosphere,,, its a proper barber shop where men come in and gather and visit. I call it the original chat room!

Gents:  I just recently joined the AoM community and this group. One thing that always stands out at a barber shop for me are the hot lather straight razor shaves. The ritual, brotherhood, and community that stems from this shaving cannot be created anywhere else.

If you're interested in getting into straight razor shaving, I offer straight and safety razor restoration and repair services. Take a look at my profile and my classifieds listing for more info! If anyone has questions or needs some help let me know.

I live in a smallish town in Warwickshire, UK. There are two proper barber shops here that i know of and many more in Coventry which isn't very far away. I guess we are just lucky here, there is so much choice.

If there's one thing I miss from my early years, it's barber shops. The nice smell, the rhythm of the scissors, and the straight blade on the neck and sides,  and the talk and even when I needed a booster seat as a small boy, the all-male atmosphere, I soaked it up. When I was in college, there was a little place underground and it cost $5. The last time I went to one was about 15 years ago, and I never went back. Why? They were too damn busy to walk a broom across the floor, and I about fell flat on my face when I slipped on some hair.

I want to find an old style Barbershop around Lancaster Ohio. My mom and sister are Beauticians but it is not the same. I would love to have the experience of a sorry for the pun... but a shave and haircut!

Finally found a barbershop I like close to my workplace.  For nearly 30 years I went to the same guy (he also cut my Grand-dad and my dad until both passed) but then I moved away upon marriage.  I spent 2 years going to a unisex salon and all the conversation was about Miley Cyrus and the latest fads.  Visited my new barber yesterday for the second time...30 minutes of good conversation about the Kennedy Assassination, plus a great cut.

Truly, the bastion of manly interaction in the modern world> I always had my hair cut at a unisex salon growing up (Since the owner was my next-door neighbor and "Other Mother", i feel no shame in it), That being said, i was ecstatic to find that an old friend of mine (and professional tattoo artist/piercer) opened a punk/ rockabilly barbershop named Sweeney's next door to his tattoo studio. Sorry , Carol... But Jonny does it better.

Love finding out we have a barbershop group on here! I will not use a salon, sport clips etc. Do we have a barbershop recommendation or locator sub-forum? I travel for work and it would be nice to find a place to get a trim and maybe a good shave on the road.

I can beat that Kevin B. Turkish barbers in Bahrain will shave you and cut your hair for about $ 4.50

Comment by Kevin B on July 28, 2013 at 3:48pm

How have Turkish barbers not taken over the world? I recently had the opportunity to experience a Turkish haircut/shave/mask/ear flame thing...amazing. And here in Turkey that whole thing cost $15. I can't even get a decent haircut in the States for that price. Has anyone had a similiar experience?
