Just a little off the top, please!
My first barber was my father's barber and was known as Joey the barber. The shop was in the front room of his house and once in a while his wife would come through the curtain to visit. Across the street was a tavern, and between customers he would go there for a snort and then come back as you waited in the chair.
My Dad used to take me to a Barber College, where haircuts were free because they were done by Barber College Students who did the best they could while learning the Tonsorial Art, and the results were just fine for a 4-year-old!
Of course, the Students got nice tips too!
A Timeless Men’s Trend from the Great Depression!
By the time the Great Depression hit, the undercut had already been THE go-to look for young men in Great Britain. Here at home, the undercut became the symbol of young working class men, the builders of railroads…skyscrapers…farmers and factory workers. All things being cyclical again, these amazing images from the Great Depression showcase clean lines, classic barbering and an undercut that’s still on trend.
