We’re all so busy and have our habitual routes through the city, so our tenants may not be aware of the new convenience steps away from 1123 and 1133 Broadway. A great haircutting brand—Fellow Barber—opened shop at 1149 Broadway in mid-2019. Have you tried it? As we enter the new year, there is no better time to tune up your look.
Steps from your office you can get a truly professional haircut for $40, assured of both the quality and the ability of the cutters to deliver any cut from the traditional to the latest buzz styles. How can you be sure? Because the founder of Fellow Barber set out to set a new tradition in haircare by making sure that his highly trained cutters provide elevated barbering services.
Sam Buffa has bene quotes as saying that in 2006 when he founded Fellow Barber, there were two options open to guys: pay $90/$100 for a salon cut or go to a local barber for $12 and get a limited range of hairstyles, cut with varying degrees of quality. One couldn’t be sure of what one was getting or how to get what one wanted.
Buffa wanted to change that. He aimed to set up a profession of barbers who would be paid fairly and who would earn that pay by being expert in their trade. So, he selected the best barbers and offered all haircuts at $40. As a result, he raised the overall quality of barbering, increased the barbering wage nationwide, and created new jobs for people willing to master their trade.
Currently, Buffa has eleven locations: three in San Francisco and eight in New York. Each of these shops embody the individuality of its staff and the surrounding neighborhood, while adhering to a common quality standard.
Additionally, Buffa has created a line of grooming products that are paraben and sulfate-free. And made with 100% natural essential oils extracted from herbs, trees, fruits, flowers and other plants that are reminiscent of Northern California’s coastal Redwoods and Southern California’s citrus orchards. Fellow Barber products include clays, washes, styling products, and many more.
Now we can benefit, because the new Fellow Barber shop not only offers all of these advantages, but does so in a lively NoMad-inspired interior with a sociable staff just a stone’s throw away.
So now is the perfect time to set a new image for 2020 and up your game— professionally and socially. Right nearby you can start moving to a tight cut or, as many are, cultivate a long hair look. Buffa says that his savvy cutters can do it all and have the know how to keep you looking terrific during your transition to the new look.
