When I was out in CA I snuck around behind Gaspare’s back.. but I knew I was going to since I’d been wanting to check out Hawleywood’s for a couple years. Dickies put up this video with the shop’s founder, Donnie. (I went to Jimmy in Long Beach who was super nice.) Best damn haircut I ever had. I didn’t have a PBR but I did pee with the door open…but that’s only because I didn’t realize the bathroom had a door.

i would be lying if i didn't say i was jealous. he's got a point, that the hair industry is aimed toward women, but there are some of us who are turned off by the whole spa and salon aspect. i really don't want to go spend a couple of hours in a chair while i listen to shitty music and have some "stylist" put product in my hair which i already requested not to have done and then pay over a $100 for a haircut that's just ok. i'd rather go to a place that cares about quality, but is also ready to just get down to business and cut my hair.

can you tell i'm bitter now that the girl who used to cut my hair moved away? maggie was the best. we just talked about tattoos and i got a great haircut for $40 (plus $10 for tip).

a couple of years ago I was down in Hollywood walking past this old-timey Barber shop Like this. At the time I hadn't cut my hair in 3 months and my beard was down to my chest. I made eye contact with one of the barbers as I was walking. I felt like it was 1969, and I was the forward thinking freak and the barber was thinking get in here and clean up that mess son. I guess he didn't get the memo. That rockabilly thing is so 90's bro. It's all dirtball psychedelic biker now. Oh well. It was a pretty funny nano second.

HHAAHA Dean, psychedelic dirtball bikers are people, too. They were probably pumping some Royal Crown Revue or something, hope you don't harbor any haircut resentment because of it. I usually grow a pretty hefty beard at least once a year but I love a good haircut. My barber's never given me shit for it and actually likes hearing about how it pisses off my girlfriend.

I totally identify with this.I used to just shave my head myself because there are only feminine salons around me.Now I just grow my hair.I don't feel comfortable in salons.It's the same thing with tattoo shops nowadays,they went from being like barber shops to now being all like fern bars or feminine hair salons.I'm gonna open my own tattoo shop soon,only serving bikers, strippers,waitresses,blue collar workers,drug dealers and people that live on the fringes of society.

I used to go to a barber shop that was very old-school. Got my hair cut by the same guy that cut my dad's hair when he was young. Cash register from the 1930's, leather straps hanging from the chairs. Stopped going there when I started to shave my head. I miss that experience.
