Barbers – Styling experts for men
Barbers are the experts when it comes to shaving and beard care, and barbershops are more popular than ever – women are banned, Rockabilly music plays and the clientèle are plied with whiskey whilst they’re being attended to.
Beards are back
A well-tended beard has become ubiquitous in the world of male grooming. There’s a style to suit everyone and perfectly emphasise their attractiveness. When it comes to looking good, facial hair is just as important to men as head hair. To set off the beard to its best advantage, it’s important to find the right shape for it. No matter whether you choose a three-day beard, a moustache or a dandy-style look, anything goes as long as it’s well cared for. An ever-growing range of cosmetic products and razors make modern-day beard care a breeze. However, it’s also wise to regularly visit an expert who can restyle your beard, get it back into shape again and also give it some professional care and treatment.
What is a barbershop?
Barbershops are reviving a tradition of the hairdressing trade that has long been neglected in this part of the world. They combine these traditional skills with a contemporary lifestyle, fusing coolness and style to create a well-being oasis for men. For beard care and shaving, they only use the best care and maintenance products that have stood the test of time. In keeping with this, barbershops also tap into the vintage trend for their entire concept – this is reflected in the design of the shop and in the way the barber himself is dressed. A barbershop is a place where men can relax and feel good while having their beards trimmed; there are vintage leather chairs, an earthy, nostalgic scent is in the air and the décor is extremely masculine.
What makes a good barber?
A barber’s main role is to provide professional shaving and beard care. A good barber will work according to the highest quality standards and only uses products that he stands by. He will see his job as a calling and will demonstrate quality and authenticity. A really good barber has a good eye and is obsessed with details. He will want his clients to leave the shop looking well groomed with not a hair out of place and their beards perfectly styled. In fact, you could say that a barber, with his sharp razor blades, is like a tailor for hairdressing, beard and facial care. He knows his clients’ weak points and their physical and mental characteristics.
Why suits and barbers are the perfect match
Men are more prepared than ever to invest in how they look. Not only are they making more effort in the areas of skincare and haircare, they are also paying more attention to their styling and their overall appearance. The right outfit of course rounds off the look perfectly. At CG – CLUB OF GENTS, we focus on authenticity and quality just like a professional barber. So why not combine the two?
