100 Years of Hair: Know Your Beards

Back in July I saw a very funny spot for Gillette Razors that was still impactful. Entitled '100 Years of Hair', this video illustrates the evolution of men’s facial hair styles. Packing the history of men's shaving trends into just 56 seconds, I thought it would be interesting to repost.

During my interviews and research, I've found many Barbers agree that knowing your history is huge and being educated is key. Know your time periods and why a certain trend may suddenly be popular so that when it does come back you will be the go-to Barber.

What's your favorite product to shave with? We are going to discuss Brooklyn Grooming's Shave Oil, Shave Soap and much more later this week and we'd love to hear what you use. Shout out in the comments below or send us an e-mail HerChairHisHair@gmail.com. Happy watching!

Until Next Time,
Cassie



Repost Worthy: It's a Man's Man's World

The other "C" takes us on a journey of what it is like to be a Lady Barber from her perspective. I think many of us can relate to it on a personal and professional level regardless the industry you belong to be it medical, creative or technical. We all belong in someone else's world to a degree at any given point of our careers and this speaks to it extremely well. I will let "C" take it from here....

 

I Am Her

Welcome to my world. Its a man’s world around here sometimes. I am a Master Barber and it has been my pleasure to for the last 13 years to keep the men in my world looking manly.

 The benefit of being a woman in a male dominated field is that I add a certain something. A touch, not unlike the midas type, that keeps them coming back for more and more. My expertise goes beyond basic haircuts and trims. From hair to skin care. From timepieces to sneakers. From classic menswear to street style, that woman’s touch. Thats the finishing touch that they all seek.

Ultimately, I love when a man is dressed and impeccably groomed. Whether he going to formal event, the office, dinner party or just hitting the streets with his people. Well dressed for any occasion is my thing.

So here I am celebrating what I see, what makes sense and looks good. I am sharing what I know. Razors. Shaving oils. Haircuts. Maintaing styles at home, barbershop etiquette[...].
