It’s back-to-school time. Time to get that back-to-school haircut. I’ve also been receiving several questions about my hair-style lately, so thought I would touch on it.
Morning, first day of Menswear Design class at the Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC.
A barber is a stylish man’s best friend. However, as many of you probably know, finding a good barber can be tricky.
The key is communication.
I only go to my man Ceasar, who knows exactly how I like my hair. Ceasar works at Raul’s Barber Shop on Avenue B between Houston and E 2nd. The shop caters primarily to African American men, which means the barbers know their way around a pair of short clippers and a low fade.
Caesar starts with a .5 clipper guard, quickly blends to a 2 on the sides, trims the top with scissors and then shapes-up my back and beard with a straight blade.
$15 + $5 Tip. Once a month – although I usually fade the sides myself once a week with my own clippers.
After that, styling is quick and easy. Dampen, apply evenly a peanut-size amount of Crew Fiber pomade, side part with comb, run hands through from front to back.
Time to get ready: 30-60 seconds.
Thanks for reading.
