Every day there are all sorts of haircuts walking out of our doors, some simple everyday cuts, and some a bit more dapper, and some where our clients let us pull out all the stops. For those who want to know what we REALLY do here.
The Legend: Sigmund Tweed
The Barber: Tyler
Lyle is a local old school psychologist who is the very embodiment of the discipline. Although we should mention that despite his look, he is in fact a Jungian. He also likes weird anime. Because of course.
Tall and dapper, always immaculately dressed, and believed to very obviously be one of our Santa clients by the Shop Kid, it is always a delight to have his flawless hair and beard in our chairs.
This is a haircut so classic it barely has name, neatly tapered, all shear cut. It’s just plain old good hair, with a little bit of blowdrying and a serum for light, well-groomed hold with a no-product feel. For the face, the service here is the beard embodiment of the famous Michael Pollan quote on health, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
Our version: “Trim beard neatly. Not too much. A few drops of oil.”
In this case, that oil is Claus, the newest addition to the shelves of Beardenheim (our beard product cabinet).
An icy winter night. Frost on the fir trees. A nip off the flask. A puff on the pipe.
Introducing Claus, the first creation born of the Camelot’s Finest (Merlin’s Beard) and the Alchemy of the Gaard (Beardsgaard).
Smelling of Balsam Fir, Bourbon Vanilla, Peppermint and Tobacco, this Special Edition blend is inspired by our real-bearded Santa clientele. Of which there are multiples.
While it is officially Santa-approved, it is a complex and evocative scent for Santas, wizards, vikings, and all beards in between, all winter long.
A superb base blend of apricot kernel, avocado, sunflower, wheat germ, vitamin E and jojoba oils hydrate and nourish the beard and skin underneath.
It is amazing, if we do say so ourselves.
A lot of fantastic cuts walk out of this shop, but most of the time we are on to the next client before we have a chance to take photos.
So, to actually capture these great styles (with decent lighting), we have started a roster of hair models. None are “models” for sure (although some have been a curiously Pavlovian effect on our lady followers), these Zoolanders are pulled from our existing clients.
