The word “Barber” used to stand for something. Professional/Traditional/Licensed
barbering is not available for $5 at the Un-licensed shop on the
corner, or even $100 @ the new/hip place that just opened up in the
city. For generations real licensed barbers have bought houses, raised
children, purchased new cars, and made a honest living making their
customers look their best at reasonable prices. The
“chop shop” chains like SportsClips, Floyds, Hair Curttery, and the best
of all “Male Salons” try to play the role of a traditional barber,
while at the same time take away customers and $$ from the real deal
shops that have been around for generations. Share this with your
buddies who support these soul-less “Chop Shops”, and give them a slap
upside the head next time ya see them. Support local barbershops..
