  • Embracing the Silver Lining

    "So you're going grey, then." Like many men I’d embraced the trend of growing out my hair, looking more like Tom Hanks in Castaway than Ragnar Lothbrok from Vikings. The awkward "growing out" phase was easy to hide on Zoom, but not so much on a sunny day in West Auckland. I'd anticipated some shit talk when we met, but I didn't expect it to be about the colour rather than the style of my hair. Let's just say I'm no George Clooney, especially in terms of going grey. Upon close inspection that day, and every day since then, I've noticed  my transformation into a silver fox. Each strand represents the challenges we have overcome, the lessons we have learned, and the experiences that have shaped us. Embracing grey hair is not just about aesthetics; it's about wearing our stories with pride and embracing the beauty that comes with a life well-lived.
  • The Legacy of the Barber Pole

    The history of barbershops is a fascinating reflection of how societal needs and norms evolve over time. From their origins as places where people went for medical procedures like bloodletting, to their role as social hubs for men to gather and relax, barbershops have always been an important part of communities.

    Today, we are seeing a resurgence of interest in barbershops, as modern establishments offer a wider range of grooming services and cater to a diverse clientele. This trend reflects a growing interest in men's self-care and a recognition of the importance of taking time for oneself. At the same time, the social atmosphere of the barbershop remains valuable, providing a space for people to connect and engage in friendly conversation. As society continues to change and evolve, it will be interesting to see how the role of the barbershop continues to adapt to meet the needs of its customers.
