Q. What could be better than once again finding a real traditional classic barbershop?

“I have quickly discovered going mobile to provide house calls allows me the opportunity to focus solely on you during the appointment unlike within the bustle of a loud barber shop that might either be crowded and or feel rushed. As a mobile barber I still provide professional service and now dedicate my attention solely to one client at a time without distraction! I have acquired a unique portable barber chair in addition to all the tools and products needed to provide you the complete experience of personally tailored at-home white glove barber services… All that is needed from you is a small well lit working space and access to hot water to fill my portable basin (if shaving). Additionally, I always carry what’s needed to clean up afterwards so the only evidence of me being there is your renewed dapper appearance!“

Some history on traditional classic barbering…The word “barber” is actually derived from the Latin word “barba”, which means beard, and the word “Tonsorial” translates to cutting, clipping or trimming of hair with shears or razors. This is why the skillful techniques and tools used in classic barbering are just as important as the experience itself… the art form requires skill, passion, and dedication to master.
Classic barbering is an art form that has stood the test of time. The tonsorial concept dates back to Roman Times combining technical skill and artistry to create a unique and enjoyable experience for clients.
Anthony has remained true to the roots of the traditional manual techniques of barbering by offering an authentic and personalized experience that cannot be replicated by a machine or a quick visit to a chain salon. His polished techniques and scissor skills have been passed down from generation to generation, and while slightly evolved with the times, they still hold true to the timeless qualities that make them so unique. Finishing is key, it’s in the details and the refinement of the craft!
Before clippers there were scissors. Apparently, the first scissors were used around 3,000 to 4,000 years ago in Egypt. They were made with two bronze blades connected by a thin, curved bronze strip at the end of the blades. Squeezing the blades brought them together and releasing opened them up. This is called “spring scissor,” and it's a style still made to this day. The direct ancestor of modern-day scissors (two blades joined at a pivot) was created by the ancient Romans around 100AD and called “pivoted scissors”.
Before electric clippers they only had hand powered clippers, cousin to the scissor! The earliest form of the modern hair clipper was invented in 1855 and was manually operated.
With this, hair trimming was achieved by clamping and releasing the tool’s arms to move the blades... Just the same principle behind yes you guessed it SCISSORS!
Sadly scissors have become a forgotten tool in most modern barbershops as manual barber tools require a good amount of effort and skill to operate. Well seasoned barbers have the steadiness and technical ability to cut the top shape of a flat top precisely using only scissors and a comb! Scissors are also used to form the fundamental connection between the top and bottom of any proper medium length tapered haircut. They are used to seamlessly blend clipper work into the longer lengths of a tapered style. They are also used to trim the “wild ones” be that on the head or eyebrows.
Anthony specializes in the classic craft of barbering which includes providing seamlessly blended traditional haircuts for men, using both clippers and precision scissor work.
True Barbers Shave!
The ultimate grooming experience is receiving a proper old fashioned straight razor shave... a clean, close shave that will have you reminiscing of the good old days while leaving you feeling like a refreshed and rejuvenated new man.
Early razor blades have been found dating back to the Bronze Ages! Romans had barbers since 296 BC, when Ticinius Mensa came from Sicily bringing the art of shaving with him. A master barber during the 18th century would render what is now considered old fashioned skilled services such as the art of a straight razor shave.
Today, licensed barbers are trained to use the razor with precision and care, and follow strict sanitation and safety protocols to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for their clients. Shaving is a tonsorial art form of precision and care and has quickly become a lost art in the recent revival of modern barbershops.
Whether an old fashioned hot towel shave or shave around the edges of a haircut straight razor shaving is the ultimate finishing touch only truly experienced barbers like Anthony can provide. When combined with warm lather and hot towels it is a true luxury in mens grooming services.
Surprise your loved ones with a gift of grooming that will leave them feeling and looking their best and includes personal service worth bragging about!
