A question I’ve been asking myself for about a year or so now. Why? Because the best haircuts I’ve received over the last 2 years have been 30 minutes to an hour away depending on my location. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had some really good and “solid” cuts but the freshest next level cuts have been anything but close in proximity.
I didn’t always believe that having a go-to barber was a necessity. But as time and ideas spawn I see why the trade and the person are vital into your weekly appearance.
I would love for my hairstyles to bat 1,000 every time. I like to switch it up and be versatile. I want to create within reason of my age and brand representation. A barber/hairstylist has now become a vital piece to that puzzle.
I’ll be honest. A 2 hour round trip for a haircut isn’t ideal, but right now, it’s the best appearance option. If you know a dope barber within 30 miles of the west suburbs of Chicago, please refer them in the comments.
