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.

Take your son to the barbershop!

I have seen many dads allow mom take the kids to a hair salon. Men you must take your son to a baber shop! If you go to a "salon"...change! There are so many "man lessons" to be learned at the barber…Continue

Why does it just not feel right?

I shave my head and I'm happy with my look and myself. That isn't the issue, the issue is that I do miss going to the barber. Why, though, does it just seem out of place to go in for a head shave?…Continue

I live in Charlotte, NC and I've been looking for a honest to god barber shop with not luck. I'm sick of the, what I call, fast food places (Great Clips, Super Cuts, ect.). I have found a good mens saloon but it's not quite the same. Those places use attractive women to butter you up for more money. Does anyone know a good place in the Charlotte area?

My favorite barbershop is one where they really do sing, in barbershop, while you're getting your hair cut.  I haven't found one yet, but by insisting, I have been asked not to come back from numerous establishments.

My favorite barber has recently become a friend of mine. This statement shocks me as I even write it. Nowadays it is harder and harder to form true and close adult male friendships. I found that walking into my barbershop and sitting down for a fresh-cut has turned into an opportunity to escape. The freedom to just be a man and be myself and have an open honest conversation with somebody is and in frequent experience with me because my job is so demanding and time is very valuable. Thank you to all the barbers on this site because you guys are contributing to society in a major way that impacts all of us and we leave your shop. The confidence I feel when I leave helps me succeed.

I love a proper shave. I mostly do my beard etc myself but sometimes a real shave is called for. Just found a new place in Birmingham, UK which is awesome

I got to do some barbering today, I'm trying to find some way to pay for my certification and training.  until I'm certified, I cannot legally charge for a haircut.  thankfully I have enough friends who let me keep my skills sharp while I figure out how to go to full time barber school and work so I can pay rent.

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!

the question of rape

i had just introduced myself in the introduction forum and immediately the context of rape comes in as a welcome speech. i am really glad to be greeted that way. this shows the kind  of manliness practiced in this forum in a pretty much comprehensive manner. i was told how indian men should think about women, how real men think about women etc. etc. now let us examine this question of rape in detail : why men rape ?the answer i have got is  dominance theory so far. now let's examine this theory…See More
