A Barber Shop Like It Used To Be

Remember going to the barber shop down the road as a kid? You can recall the smell, the feel of the chair, the music playing in the background, and most of all, the gumball machine in the corner. There are not very many barber shops anymore like there used to be. Old barbers are retiring from business and not too many barbers are there to take their place. Not that there are not enough hair stylists out there, but actual barbers are not as common. It is nice to be able to go to a small, simple barber where service is his top priority. Well, there is such a barber shop in Orlando.

The Barber’s Touch

Many men will tell you that going to a hair salon never gives them the same satisfaction as going to a good barber. There is just something about the way they cut hair. They specialize in men’s haircuts rather than women’s and they aim to please; barber shops also offer close shaves.

Most barbers have many years of experience. In fact, there are even barbers that have so much training and experience that they are referred to as Master Barbers. These masters work and train hard to be where they are, and it brings them satisfaction when they can educate those they serve on proper technique.

Salon Not for Everyone

For many people, going to the hair salon is not their first choice when they need a haircut. This is often because they prefer the simple, straight-forward manner of a barber shop. The barber is someone you can take the whole family to for a quiet, friendly atmosphere. It can be a tradition to take your sons to the barber shop and everyone can become better acquainted over the years.

Barber shops can be a family business, and many can still be found in small towns across the United States. One barber ran his own business for several years and once he was ready to quit, his son took over the business. The same men came back over and over again for repeat business because of the good rapport. They were all friends, and it was nice to keep the business in the family.

The Right Setting

Some small children cannot make it through a haircut without getting frustrated or cry throughout the entire ordeal. They end up with a mouthful or eyeful of hair, and they are not able to hold still for very long. Going to a barber can actually create memories for a small child. The right barber is very skilled at what he does and a young child can have a fun experience. Taking young children to the barber can be preferable, especially since the wait is generally shorter, and the haircut quicker.

Not all wives or mothers like to cut hair and not everyone wants to spend a fortune at the department store getting their hair styled. A barber shop is the perfect solution. Go ahead, stop in and see if it takes you back to the good ol’ days.
