Part of my New Year's resolutions, I decided that 2015 would need a historic change in my personality and appearance. It's now time to behave with more maturity, style and wisdom ... better late than never. To mark the occasion, I scheduled a rendez-vous last Friday at La Barbière de Paris in order to reshape my wild grizzled beard. As you can see in the media, barbershops are absolutely trendy, beard is becoming a new fashion statement and it was really time for my messy hair to get back in line. Yes indeed, I assume that there might be a simple metaphor between my facial hairs and my life ... So as to revolutionise my profile I entered the second barbershop opened in Sept. 2014 by Sarah Hamizi next to Pont Neuf and Châtelet. After getting a warm welcome from a super hairy "stewardess", I am taken over with no delay by Damien and take place next to an octagonal table. I absolutely love the Takara Belmont retro barber chairs situated under a large and bright glass roof. The deco is a perfect mix between these timeless chairs and the modern room.
The serious things are about to start ... Just like a consultant, Damien recommended me a beard shape according to my desires, personality and morphology. Then I have to choose between scary given options ... electric trimmers, scissors, straight razors, tweezers and epilating wax. The tough guy and masochist can select the full package. Between you and me, the hot pink wax and tweezer program is unpleasant but bearable ( Yes I made it ... I told you it would be a revolutionary experience ). After which the trimmer is a child's play ! The main advantage of waxing is longevity ... it removes hair at the root for an average of two to three weeks ... it's worth it. 45 minutes and 35 € later a new and invigorating man went out of this Fab barbershop. Meanwhile your next appointment, do not hesitate to buy some products ( brush, comb and oil ) in order to maintain your beard in a good shape. By the way, those who want to have a VIP treatment can reserve Le Cercle By Sarah ... it's more expensive but you will have the privilege to be pampered by Sarah ... the master barber.
