There's No School Like the Old School

Bringing the Art of the Shave to a New Generation

Published Thursday, January 16, 2020

These barbers and their shops may be young and new but they are not afraid to kick it old school, in fact, that's just the way they like it.  A collection of new barbers is plying their trade in a variety of shops in and around Berks County.  In their chairs, guests can experience the pleasures of a traditional hot towel treatment, or , the more daring client may opt for the old-fashioned straight razor shave.  Done expertly, it truly is the best a man can get.  Beard maintenance and upkeep are on offer for hipsters and lumbersexuals alike.  The harried executive may choose a package of "manpering" treatments, (it's a thing, we just made it up) including nail services, skin detoxification and manscaping, (which is also a thing, but we didn't make that up.)  

 

Below are some Berks County barbers who would love to welcome you to their eclectic shops and sit you down in their leather-bound chairs in their quest to make Berks County gorgeous, one man-bun at a time...
