The barbershop is a cultural center in communities around the world where men and young boys gather for fresh shaves and haircuts, as well as unfiltered talk on everything from politics and pop culture to learning how to tie a bow tie.
That very first trip to the barbershop is an experience many fathers share with their sons, and it’s come to represent a rite of passage into manhood. The profession itself bears a tremendous amount of responsibility, as clients flock to these styling hubs in the hopes of not only looking good but feeling good.
As men and boys settle into the barber’s chair for a fresh trim ahead of Father’s Day, we invite you to take a trip across the globe for a glimpse inside barbershops in Cuba, Israel, and beyond.
