    .....My current barber - -young and female - never saw one of these, so I printed it out and gave it to her today.....Remember Those Vintage Haircut Charts Barbers had on the Wall ??-barber-jpg.
    I added that 'this was pre-Beatles, of course', but that didn't seem to help much........

    The barbershop in Brooklyn where I go to has this on the wall! It's called Tomcats, and specializes in vintage style 'dos. It started as a rockabilly shop, but now every style conscious musician goes there. Super cool!

    I remember those on the barber shop wall when I was a kid. Talk about a flashback!

    I can't tell any diff between 'Executive' and 'Professional' Contour. Or any of the others really. Look at our progress since then!

    Let it be a ray of hope to anyone who feels it's all going to shit.

    Barbershops are springing up all over town, because the millennials' preferred styles – shaved back and sides with sculpted tops – require regular maintenance. Besides, a haircut is one thing you cannot get on Internet.

    The original Cassette had the full Barber's sign as a cover...can't seem to find that image online but the music's worth a listen...great 70's afro-cuban rebooted. the original albums are the best but this stuff still works...as a side note the worst haircut I ever had was in Togo (where the original guitarist's from) - orange handled kitchen scissors, a fight between the two barbers & the police being called - I didn't have a haircut for a few years after that...

    I went full hipster about a year ago. I used to get my hair cut at Great Clips. Like Ross Perot, I thought haircuts were something one shouldn't spend too much time or money on. But, a couple of cool shops opened up nearby with a hipster/retro vibe. One even offers you a cocktail before the haircut. I decided to check them out and got hooked. So now I go with a fade on top and a full beard--kind of like "the dapper" above. I like having short hair especially on the back and sides that is easy to deal with, and well a beard means never having to say you're shaving. It is a bit pricier than Great Clips, though they spend about twice as long as any barber I've had before. I think it looks pretty good; well I do the best with what I have. (I still have all my own hair and teeth, so I guess I'm ahead of the game.) The other thing with the hipster barbershops is that they remind me of my grandfather's shop, which coincidentally is still in the same location where he started working in 1930 (though currently boarded up and for sale--he died in the 60's). He always gave me a fade (which my little elementary school self hated), and put pomade on my hair and powder on my neck...just like my current barber.

    For the last few years we had all been giving ourselves fascist haircuts, shaving the sides down to a clean honest stubble, combing back the top with a snap of the wrist. It was visually witty because we knew so much better now – after all, ideas are not attached to haircuts, are they? But all at once, and lifting tiki torches, the ideas were back as well, and wearing the haircut we had thought to rehabilitate.

    My wife's cousin has a barber shop in a small town in Southern Italy, outside of Bari.It has a lot of vintage Americana barber shop 'stuff' on the walls since that was the vibe he was going for.
