A Cut for a Cause... High End NY Stylist Mark Bustos Gives Back with Hair Cuts for the Homeless!

Mark Bustos is a hairstylist that works in the high end salon "Three Squares Studio" in Chelsea, NY. The price for his services range from $150-$800 depending on which services/treatments the client receives.

New York, New York, they say if you can make it here you can make it anywhere. But for those down on their luck, it can be a ruthless city. So when a local does something purely out of the kindness of their hearts, it raises awareness.

Mark Bustos is using his role in the beauty industry to give back, whenever he can he goes out into the streets of New York to give free hair cuts to homeless men and women. He approaches each individual with the same way, telling them "I'd like to do something nice for you today."






Bustos got the idea after visiting family members in the Phillipines in 2012. During his visit he hosted an event where he gave free haircuts to under privileged children. "It made such a strong positive impact on me that I decided to bring it back home to NYC." says Bustos

Since then Bustos estimates to have cut over 50 homeless men and women's hair-and not just in New York, but also Costa Rica, Jamaica, and Los Angeles.  Bustos says he tries to cut people hair in visible places, to try to inspire people to use their own professions to give back to those who are less fortunate.

Bustos hopes that the haircuts give his homeless clients the inspiration to turn their lives around.

Lather Time!

I had a haircut this weekend and instead of seeing the usual stylist who cuts my hair, I went to a special section of the salon and had my hair cut in the "In Store Barber Shop".

It was pretty cool. Set apart from the rest of the salon, there were old school barber chairs, flat screen TV's, yadda yadda. It was like a man cave hidden in the hustle and bustle of a very busy salon.  When the service was nearing the end, and the stylist (or I guess we'll call him a barber) came to trimming my neck hair and side burns, I had a surprise.  Instead of breaking out the mini buzzer like my usual stylist does, the man cave guy broke out the hot lather machine and a straight razor.  Sure, flashes of Sweeney Todd went through my head, but in the end, I loved it.  Hot lather rules!  

And as odd chance would have it, Pure Spa Direct JUST ADDED a very economical Hot Lather Machine from Scalpmaster... the "Lather Time Professional Lather Machine".  It features a push button for easy dispensing, an extra large soap cup for an all day supply of warm lather and a long lasting DC motor. It also includes a non-slip safety pad, a cleaning brush and an 8 oz. bottle of liquid shave cream. Pretty cool old school stuff.

Classic Barbershop Vibe with Pure Spa Direct

Even though we are in a time where everyone is all about the next big thing: what is new and shiny or fast,  I prefer to take it back to the classic times... when I go to the barbershop that is. The times when barbers used to shave you with the old fashioned razors, not the new buzzers.  Pure Spa Direct has those old fashioned razors as well as the Barber Strops.  Something about the vibe in a classic barbershop gives a trusting feeling that when your there you don't have to worry about your hair, because by the time they finish, you will be satisfied.  For all those barbershops that have that classic feel to them, visit Pure Spa Direct  -we have the items you'll need to keep the old times coming.
