Who takes a camera to a barbershop? Well....Me! I made my weekly trip to see my guy Ren to chop me up for the weekend. As I was waiting around after my cut, because it's rude to just leave right after getting a fresh haircut, I decided to try out my newest additions to my lens family. A Rokinom 85mm f1.4 and a Canon FD 24mm f2.8. 


          Barbers are much more than just the person who cuts your hair. They are also therapists, fashion consultant, music critics, and givers of vast knowledge. I remember going to the barbershop as a kid and hating that my dad would sit in there all day and talk. Now I find myself doing he exact same thing! It's the place where you can kick back and talk freely and fellowship. 


            It's an unwritten rule to never upset your barber. Why? He holds the power to take your hairline back! A hairline is a treasured possession that should be handled correctly. A sure fire way to upset your barber is by not showing on time and not tipping.  



 So tip the keeper of your hairline and enjoy the memories that take place in the barbershop. I've learned so many life lessons there and I'm sure I have much more to learn. A rule of thumb, always wash your hair before you go to the barber.....Trust me on this. Ren tells me this all the time lol.
