Even going to a barber, it's difficult to find someone who will give you a close cut shave with a straight razor. I've finally found a shop where this isn't a problem.
I'm used to having military short hair and the men at Swiney's know how to give a perfect shave with the straight razor and clippers.
An "Old Fashioned" barbershop full of characters and stories are always on hand when I go get my shop. I think that makes the experience even better.
