Grooming Artist News Roundup: July 2017

As we learned from photographer/author Rob Hammer, traditional barbershops are slowly disappearing from the American landscape. Which is why we’re glad to hear about the new generation of traditional barbershops: barbershops that preserve tradition while adding a fun vibe, making them appealing to both veterans and youngins.

Such is the case with Sandhills Shave Shop in Fayetteville, NC, where customers can sip on ale and play pool while waiting for a haircut. The barbershop has been run out of a former car repair shop for over 60 years. And cousins Jess Goins and Frankie Petrillo of St. Louis, Missouri are bringing traditional barbering to the masses by housing their barbershop in an Airstream.

Speaking of tonsorial arts, Sharpologist has come up with a must-read list for the newly enlightened shaver: the 10 Commandments of Wet Shaving. If you’re short for time, the list perfectly condenses all the major tenets of getting a great shave.

Even if you’re a skilled wet shaver, acne can often lead to sub-par shaves and irritation. So we’ve included our guide to shaving with acne, where we cover every step of the shaving process. Let us know if you see improvements!

We cap things off with delectable grilling recipes ready for a relaxed Sunday afternoon.

Enjoy!
