I decided today that it was time for another haircut. So I went out on a limb & tried one of these out-of-the-way barbershops ran by an older gent. Since I live in a large metro area, I usually frequent your typical chain-type beauty salons that overcharge & don't cut hair very well but today I decided to go against the grain (pardon the pun!!! ). Boy was I pleasantly surprised. This fella took his time (approx. 20 min), did a great job, trimmed my neck & around the ears with a straight. Got caught up on the local gossip. Nice experience. I think I've had my last haircut from the overpriced salons!!!
His shop was very old school...circa early 1960's...barber chairs & other furniture older than I am...pictures on the wall of JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, etc...strong Pinaud smell floating around...you get the picture. All for $10. I tipped him $2 for a job well done & he tried to give it back!!! Unreal. Most "beauty salons" sneer at you if you don't give'em a tip.
Sadly, he stopped doing straight shaves about 20 years ago.
