A lot of men don’t realize the value of visiting a barbershop for all their hair care needs over a salon or a quick, unisex haircut chain. Although there are plenty of good salons out there with experienced stylists, the difference between a hairstylist and a barber can mean the difference in a quality haircut that looks great for weeks vs a haircut that may look good for a week or so before it starts to grow out in horribly wrong ways. At Franco’s Barbering, we know the value of a high-quality establishment targeted to men with expert barbers that have specialized training for all men’s hair care needs.
If you’re still not sure if you should be switching to a barbershop, here are some other benefits for choosing Franco’s over a salon.
A longstanding reputation. Franco’s Barbering has been standing since 1924 when founder, Franco Ciprotti, started his first barbershop in Philadelphia. Today, Franco’s continues to promote barbering as a craft for men’s haircare.
Masculine atmosphere. Let’s face it. Walking into a women’s salon with a majority of the clientele women can be a little intimidating. Walking into Franco’s, you know you belong and you can relax and join in with lively, manly conversation with men of all ages.
Barbers are trained specifically in men’s hair. Contrary to popular belief, men’s hair is different than women’s. Barbers are trained to be skillful in handling clippers and razors to master those short, clean, close haircuts. Have long hair? Men’s hair texture still has its own unique characteristics that are best handled by a barber with specialized training.
Enjoy men-specific treatments. Barbers are masterful at using a straight-edge razor that gives men a nice, clean shave. Men can enjoy a scalp massage, a beard trim, shave, and the iconic and relaxing warm towel facial treatment that ‘true’ barbershops have become known for. As well, it’s those services we don’t discuss that are offered and valued at a barber. At Franco’s, we know men have needs – from grey blending to beard shaping and then those more “private” needs such as an ear wax and/or nose wax – they all can be done at a barber without the embarrassment of asking for them among a salon full of women.
Get a one-of-a-kind haircut. Since barbers are experts with using razors, trimmers, and clippers, these same tools can be expertly used to create a unique hairstyle that is customized to your personality and lifestyle.
It’s a memorable experience to do with your father or son. Men need traditions to bond together. Visiting Franco’s with your father or son can become a great tradition for some manly time together. We’ve seen many men make Franco’s their barber for life, and have introduced their sons to the same barber so that it’s a tradition handed down from generation to generation.
