Back in 1975 when I was in my hairstyling years, I read about a barber who specialized in “natural” styling. He used a “haircut only” approach that made it possible to have shampoo and towel-dry haircare.
Men’s extra short haircuts always had this simple haircare feature, but the natural stylist’s cutting methods also made simple haircare work for longer haircuts. His “keep it simple” approach made the hair look good all day, even if hand-combed or wind-blown, and it avoided the wide-world of chemical products and treatments.
A “Natural” way to cut and care for hair was a whole new idea, and it had special appeal to me because I was adapting myself to the “Ecology” movement that was starting up at that time. It made sense in 1975 and as each year goes by, it makes even more sense.
I can’t remember his name, but I’m most grateful to that “Natural” barber—he helped shape the kind of service I like to give, the service that’s given me a lot of grateful customers.
