If you participated in our No Shave November campaign and are looking a little shabby right now, get yourself down to The Den during the month of December, and we will not only give you a great shave but 10% of the cost of your shave will be donated to the No-Shave November non-profit, which raises funds for cancer research and treatment. If you (or those around you) didn't care for a month without a good, clean shave, you can still help out by making a donation to No Shave November. Click Here to join The Barber Den Team!


Getting the Cut You Want

Posted 8/19/2014

Hot summer days send guys running to their barber for something cooler, shorter and off the ears. The cut you have in mind might not be what you get, if you aren’t able to communicate your wishes correctly. “A little off the top and sides” might mean a ¼” touch-up to the barber, while you were expecting something much shorter. If using shears, your barber will measure with his or her fingers at one to two inch lengths. This gives you a good overall blend.


If your hair is cut with clippers, knowing your preferred guide number takes a lot of guesswork out of the cut.  A #1 on the sides and a #3 on top is a pretty standard high and tight. Go with a #1 on the sides to a finger cut on top, and you’ll have a modified Marine similar to Jethro Gibbs’ cut on NCIS.


Throughout the cut, your barber will check with you if it is how you want it. This is your opportunity to tell him if you’d like it blended more, thinned, cut a little shorter or the sideburns trimmed. It’s our goal to send you out the door with the cut you want. Remember, though, we can’t cut it longer!
