Gone are the days where men just shaved off their hair themselves once every few months. We’ve returned to an age where men enjoy grooming their hair, taking care of their appearance and projecting a certain type of image to the world. We’re seeing an impressive and welcome upsurge among exclusively male barber shops, taking care of the men’s’ needs in a masculine and comfortable environment.
Whether you’re part of the corporate, entertainment or underground grunge scene, you’ll be sure to find some inspiration for an updated look or fresh inspiration among these fashionable styles:
