Doing a Retro Barber Shop the Right Way!

These days, it is all about Retro style, and barber shops are no different! Men want a place they can go to feel comfortable, pampered, and come out looking their best, and barber shops styled after the old days of yore are becoming increasingly popular.

Thinking about retro-fitting your barber shop? Just because your style LOOKS old doesn't mean it can't offer convenience. Check out some of our favorite Retro Barber Shop Products below:

The Anton Barber Chair is upholstered with a rustic Chestnut Brown leather like vinyl, has antique style metal accents, and features heavy-duty white fiberglass from top to bottom. This barber chair also features towel hangers under each armrest, a right sided reclining lever, a flip up footrest, an adjustable headrest, and an authentic metal accent calf rest with plush cushioning for additional client comfort. The Anton Barber CHair reclines up to 45 degrees for professional shaves. For lifetime value, this barber chair is built on an NG1 Pump & base with a matching white fiber glass covering to accent the chair design.

What's a barber shop without a proper barber pole? This Barber Light Pole represents the ultimate symbol of barbers - then and now!

Ok, ok, so maybe this isn't retro - but the whole idea of a hot shave with a straight razor and warm foam brings back images of barbers throughout the ages!

What are some other essentials for an old-time barber shop?

Take Me to the Barber Shop

Ah the past...  something us humans tend to romanticize about. Barber shops are specifically known to have a fun, retro vibe, but did you know that the Barber's trade actually has a very long history? According to Wikipedia, razors were found among relics of the Bronze Age in Egypt (I guess Cleopatra wasn't the only one who wanted to look good), and in some early tribes, a barber was one of the most important members. This was because it was believed that certain evil spirits could enter a person's body through their hair, and cutting it was a way to drive them out. Okay, okay.. let's not get too weird and get to the point! 

Is your barber shop in need of a serious interior upgrade? Why not make it retro style like the old days with our vintage style barber chairs!

Our Isak Barber Chair has that classic retro look to add a vintage flair to your shop! It's plush chair makes it super comfortable as well.

For a vintage feel with a modern design, our Kasper Classic Barber Chair is perfect and very popular among traditional barbers!

Safety First! Prevent Accidents with the UNBREAKABLE DL Professional 42 oz. Acrylic Sanitizing Jar!

Accidents happen. Unfortunately, they are a part of life, and a part of being human. I, personally, am probably one of the clumsiest people around, and rarely go a day without breaking, dropping, or spilling something. As a business owner, you want to beware of clients like me, and take necessary precautions to prevent mishaps from happening...wherever and whenever possible.

At every salon, at every station, you will find a sanitizing jar. Sanitation is priority #1, and doing it safely is equally as important. For that reason, I
recommend the DL Professional 42 oz. Unbreakable Acrylic Sanitizing Jar. They are the perfect size to sanitize all implements whether you're a barber, hairdresser, or manicurist. Broken glass can be a serious hazard for any business, as well as a nightmare to clean-up. That is why every salon should go Unbreakable with the DL Professional 42 oz. Unbreakable Acrylic Sanitizing Jar.
