The Shave

Spent Memorial Day as any good American should... at the grilling by the pool.

While bobbing around in the pool The Girlfriend, Roommate and I got into a heated discussion about shaving and barber shops... I honestly cannot even remember how we started into it, but it led my Roommate and I to start praising the kinds of barbershops that still use straight razors and will trim beards or offer a full shave.

There was this shop in Northeast that used to do cut hair and trim beads (straight razor-style) for a whole 10-bucks. Since then it has closed. There is one still in River Market (I think).

Kansas City has no shortage of barbershops and hair salons. But of the 10 pages of shops that come up on Google Maps, only about two or three (if they are still in business) will do it.

After using a straight razor you did not need to shave for a week, my roommate declared.

Anyway, I saw this today and figured since straight razors were in the zeitgeist, I should share it with you rubes.
