I've just moved to Boulder from NYC and I'm looking for an experienced, no-frills men's barber that can handle a classic tapered haircut. I have had great Russian barbers in NYC but this is CO, and I can't find much. Looking for a barber that can handle an all scissors cut and one that is relegated to guard clippers. I'm willing to travel to a nearby area but would prefer not having to make the trip to Denver.

My beau has decided he'd like to neaten up his beard, and I suggested finding a professional to do it the first time. (After that, it'll likely be easier to maintain.) Any recommendations for a beard trimmer or shaper/men's grooming salon/private individual in Austin? (Obligatory beard-and-kitten picture

I have been looking online for advice and recommendations regarding training to become a classic barber. Can anyone recommend a school that has barbering as it's primary focus? I am not
interested in a cosmetology school that also
teaches the skills necessary to work in a barbershop, or learning from a teacher who cuts and styles women's hair but also
does men's hair. Is there a good place to learn and master the skills associated with the classic barbershop (clippers, scissors, straight razor, etc.), from a teacher who specializes in these skills exclusively? [more inside]

A couple of weeks ago, my wife took mercy on me and told me that my hair looks ridiculous. The words she used were "it's dated" and "sometimes I cringe when you go out like that." OK then, message received. Here's the problem: I have no clue what I would want it to look like. I can fit what I want into three very broad parameters: [more inside]

My haircut is always short and simple. I saw this on Amazon
and started wondering "Why don't I cut it myself?" Are you a guy with short hair who cuts it yourself? What would I need to know? [more inside]

I'll be in lower Manhattan today (Worth St). Can anyone recommend a barber in the vicinity that does straight-blade shaving? I would like to get my regular mustache converted into a Bob Dylan-style
pencil mustache. If not right in the neighborhood, a reasonable subway ride away is ok. Thanks!

How much should I tip a hairdresser for a men's haircut in the US? $5? $10? 10%? 25%? How much money signals that you are thrilled with the cut, rather than just okay with it? Thoughts from people who have worked in barber shops and salons would be most appreciated.

I need a recommendation for a hairdresser in Toronto for a haircut for my wedding (I'm a guy). My barber unexpectedly took a leave of absence, so I'm in the unenviable position of having to go to someone I don't know for the most important haircut of my life. They have to be really good and not intent on using my head to show off their artistry (I want a fairly straightforward cut). I don't care about price. Please help!

What is the short story where there is a barber who, upon touching a person's head or hair, is able to see how the person will die?
That's all I can really recall about the story. I read it years ago when I was in high school in one of the literature books that some classes use for instruction.

Other than asking friends, what do I look for / how do I find an incredible men's hair stylist? And once found, how do I help them help me? It's time for a major restyling but it will be a tall order if it can be pulled off, so I fear most stylists are going to think they're up to it, then botch it. How do you sleuth which stylists are the ones to trust?
