When I was visiting the Kollwitz Market Saturday last week and whilst strolling over the market buying fine food and enjoying a great breakfast, I discovered a barber shop. It is located in one of the monumental houses which used to be ruins when I arrived in Berlin 1997.
The barbershop is located in the walk-down (at the moment it is quite hot in Berlin, even though it is September) and it has a stylish masculine interior. The guys there are all experienced barbers for quite some years already. “My” barber Stilian has worked in one of the best Barbers in good old London and he knows very well what he’s doing.
I have been shaving my head for more than 10 years, but lately I have read an article about the razors of Gilette® and I found out that the production price is 8 dollar cent. That means that a package of 12 razors costs 96 cent. In the drugstore they cost € 30 which is ridiculous and a pure rip-off. Read more about it here.
So I decided to get myself a classic safety razor (more about my beautiful shaving tool here). I tried to shave my head with it, but that doesn’t work foor me. After shaving I look as if I attended a massacre 😉
I thought by myself that it might be time to say goodbye to my shiny baldness and to get a decent hair style. So I went to Rowdy Barber because I had a really nice treatment the first time I went there. During my first visit Stilian alreadey had some great visions about which hairstyle would suit me. So I knew that he would do a good job. And he did.
I love the classic “short at the sides and longer on top” style of the fifties and, even if the hair is still a bit thin, he managed a great hairstyle.
What I really like about this barber shop are the opening times. They are open Monday to Saturday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm and that is just awesome. Most barbers close at six and when a man is in the office until 5 pm, it is impossible to be there on time. Now I am able to book a treatment after work. great idea 🙂
They even have their own grooming products like shampoo and beard oi. I got myself a bottle of beard oil and when I use it in the morning I feel as if I am walking on a sunny day in an organe grove. The smell of their beard oil is great. Fresh, not too strong and my beard looks shiny and groomed.
