STRAIGHT RAZORS w/disposable blades

Due to health and sanitary purposes, barbers today are required to use a straight razor with an fresh unused disposable blade for your shaving and lining up needs.  No more honing and stropping required.

Antique of the week

These CLOCKS were specially made for barber shops by Waterbury Clock Company.  The hands would move counter-clockwise so the barber or customer can tell time while looking in the mirror.

Antique of the week

Various kinds of BARBER BOTTLES lined the back bar’s of shops then.  They would be filled with different hair tonics, lotions, aftershaves, and fragrances. These one’s here in particular are known as the HOBNAIL barber bottle.  Hand blown GLASS with the distinct bumps surrounding outside….  “Hmmm… A little hair tonic for you will do.”

The WORST invention ever made

The SUCKERS who ended up buying this “Home Haircutting System” had to be so stupid to even think this will cut hair better than a barber.  To those who invented this piece of junk – nice try.  What were you guys on in the 80′s?  Hair is always going to grow, therefore, BARBERS WILL FOREVER BE AROUND.

MHI X WAHL

Limited to only 200, MHI collaborates with WAHL to come out with one of the hottest clippers around.  Released 3 years ago, these WAHL DESIGNER’s come with an amazing MHI camo hair cloth, clipper guides, clipper comb, and more… On a trip to London in 2008, I got to pick up one of these at the MHI store.  Because of the 220V in the UK, I’m unable to use it out here.  I still bought it knowing it wasn’t the same voltage.  I couldn’t resist.  ;)
