I'm starting off the new year with an effort to look sharp - because ZZ Top says, "Every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man". So into my barber for my 1st mens haircut for 2019.
Jun (short for Junior) has been cutting my hair for the past 7 years. What I like about the haircuts that he gives me is that they are a razor haircut - also known as a straight razor fade. While the razor fade haircut is a stylish modern style offered by many barbershops, it takes a truly skilled barber to cut and shave a razor fade.
Jun's has his little barbershop located on the 1st floor of his home. He definitely minimizes on the decor, but he absolutely maximizes my comfort with his razor expertise and experience.
When he's finished cutting, Rose (my wife) will walk around me and say, "Ang gwapo mo ngayon!", and give me a kiss. "You are handsome again".
Jun smiles because he knows Rose is satisfied with his work.
He finishes by giving me a brief scalp, and a shoulder massage. As I get out of the chair he tells me, "Forty pesos, sir Greg." I smile. I give him the forty pesos plus a very generous tip. "Thanks, my friend," and we are both satisfied with the deal.
Forty Pesos is equivalent to 80 cents
I'm not an expert at styling my hair, but Rose likes it when I put some styling wax in my hair. She says it makes me gwapo. If the simple request of putting styling wax in my hair makes my wife more loving and affectionate, then the extra ten pesos is a great investment.
Have I had any other experiences with a Razor Haircut?
Unfortunately, yes. I've had razor haircuts that felt like torture. My worst experience felt like the barber was ripping the hair from my scalp. "Ouch!" was putting it mildly. I remember thinking of getting out of one barber's chair and leaving, but the mirror made it extremely obvious that I needed stay and let them finish. (Note: the bad haircut happened while I was visiting in the USA).
