REAL MEN GO TO BARBER SHOPS!
Olde Village Barber Shop and Venice Barber Shop both take a step back in time to reestablish the traditional barber shop for men. Both shops specialize in flattops, fades, tapers, and all styles of menís haircutting. All haircuts include a nostalgic hot lather neck shave and neck massage!
The Barbershop was an American cultural icon from the early
twentieth century through the late 1960s. For generations, men went to
barbershops for a fine haircut and to enjoy great conversations with the
barber and fellow clients.
In the late 1960s the unisex craze swept across
America and barbershops almost disappeared.
Menís choices were limited to salons that were devoid of
everything they enjoyed about getting a haircut.
Interesting conversation and personal relationships were
replaced by cold plastic seats and unpleasant chemical smells. Stylists
often cut at lightning speed to move from one client to the next as
quickly as possible.
Barbers are trained in cutting menís
hair, Stylists spend very little time if any time at all on the art of
cutting menís hair!
A barber knows how to cut a manís hair. If
youíre like most men these days, youíre probably going to some
unisex chain salon like Supercuts.
is that many of the people who work at salons are not trained barbers.
Theyíre cosmetologists. The difference between the two can spell the
difference between a dopey-looking haircut and a great one.
A barber is
trained to cut with clippers and shears, the main tools in cutting a
manís hair. Cosmetologists, on the other hand, are trained to use
shears and are not as comfortable with clippers. Their training is
geared towards catering to womenís hair. They become experts in
styling, coloring, and perming - things a man has no need for. Thatís
why when you ask the stylist at SuperCuts to use the number 2 on the
clippers, you walk away with a bad haircut. Sheís probably not well
versed in how to use them. But a barber can employ the clippers with
more than thirty years of decline, barbering and barbershops are making
a comeback. In fact, barbershops are on the rise and growing faster than
the old-time Barber Shop that Dad took you to when you were a Kid?
Olde Village Barber Shop and Venice Barber Shop each quality haircut
comes with a Neck Massage and Nostalgic Hot Lather Neck Shave!
