The Barber Son Of A Bald man

The life and times of a young punk working as a barber in New York city, and a few tales of my adventures in barber culture, from around the USA and the rest of the world.


Currently I'm cutting hair at Olde Tyme Barbers on 41st street and Lexington avenue, Manhattan New York.

Unai Garcia came into my shop on November first sporting an intense beard he wanted shaved down for Movember. After sawing through his think mane of facial hair I managed to sculpt this mustache that would make Ron Swanson look like a cool 12 year old with his first whiskers. My mustache is pretty weak.

Anonymous asked: What is your reaction and has anyone ever asked you to give them a male pattern bald style shave (though they have a full head of hair). I have always wanted to lose my hair permanently in mpb style & wondered what a barber's reaction would be.

I would happily do this, it sounds so fucking rad!

I haven’t posted here in a while so I’m gonna just throw up a few photos off my phone over the next few days.

My boy James came into my shop the night before we were going to celebrate my birthday, I cut his hair for free, he bummed two cigarettes off of me and I swiped him into the subway.  I love that cheap prick.

I cut the cut up one of my best friends today, midnight tapered out business pomp.  No guards no masters.

My coworker Fred hooked me up with a high and light fade while keeping the top long and disconnected, all the sketchiness on my head is in full view.

I regrettably showed my boss a post on reddit the other weekend, he quickly made a copy of the sign for our shop.  This was my tongue in cheek response.  Thank you/sorry to Jeds barber shop in SLC for the blatant rip off.
