Alright gentlemen, pay attention!
This blog has thus far been mainly about outfits I have put together, with a few fashion-related ramblings and tips thrown in there once in while. There are two subjects that, while not exactly fashion topics, are crucial to your personal image that I have not even tried to cover, purely because I am not knowledgeable in either of them. Those two subjects are skin & hair care. I may not know a whole lot about either, but today I would like to invite you to a place with people that can help with one of those subjects: your hair.
If you don't already get your hair (or beard!) cut at Downtown Barbershop, I highly recommend you do. These guys (and gals) are the real deal when it comes to men's barbers. From the vintage barber chairs, to them using actual straight edge razors, hot towels, and old time aftershave, the whole experience will take you back in time. But, that doesn't mean you can only get an old style haircut! On the contrary, the barbers have all been trained extensively in virtually every style and can cut your hair however you want them to. When I come in I like to show them a picture of what I want (because a picture is worth a thousand words!), they look at it for maybe 5 seconds, and when they are finished it looks exactly as I envisioned it. I've had them cut my hair into multiple styles, and I have loved each one. These pictures are of my latest haircut, and they don't do it justice!
Not only did they cut my hair, but they helped me by showing me how to style it. They have their own line of hair and beard products that they sell in store and online, and I have been using their "Hair doh | shaping paste" personally. While it may seem expensive at around $15 for a can, it is definitely worth it! My can has lasted me for 4 months so far, and I still have almost half left.Depending on what time you go, there may be a line of other men waiting for their haircut. If this happens, don't worry! You can sit on their comfortable leather couch, grab a magazine from their large stack, or watch one of their multiple flat screen tv's mounted on the walls. Or, you can peruse their selection of ties, bowties, t-shirts, socks, cufflinks, and other men's fashion products that they sell in store. I have a pair of black socks with white polka dots that I bought at DB, and they are my favorite socks I own!
Oh, and just in case all of that wasn't enough to persuade you to try them out, maybe this will: Let them know I sent you, and you can get $2.00 off your first visit!
