    Jon Roth hails from Ontario, and is the founder of Crows Nest Barbershops, which boasts 5 locations across Canada. Crows Nest Barbershops aren’t any normal Barbershop chain though. Each shop has its own individual personality and story, all as varied as the neighbourhood they are in and the staff that work there – which was completely intentional. From the outset, Jon wanted to create a place that was more than just a barbershop, and a part of the community. Crows Nest Barbershop was born in a basement, in Kensington, Toronto. Jon, needed a place to practise his craft but couldn’t find the place to do it – so he made one. From there, the Crows Nest family began to grow and eventually they needed a new location. The vision for Jon and the Crows Nest team was always clear – take their appr

    Textured And Disconnected Slick Back - How To Cut
    This style is a modern twist on something classic. The Slick Back has its origins in eras gone by, but the Disconnect gives it a new dimension and brings the style right into the modern day. The Textured & Disconnected Slick Back is a style we’re seeing more and more, particularly in Europe from some of the top barbers out there. It’s a style that’s super wearable every day and versatile enough to be worn differently to suit the needs of the guy in the chair. It can be worn loose and textured with height, or low and slicked back. There are so many things to get right and a lot of techniques involved to make a good cut look great – the fade has to be high enough and smooth enough; the length on the top has to be just right at the fringe and back; the hairline has to be strong. We know its not easy, so we’ve tried to help just a little with this video tutorial. Luke Dolan has some serious skills –

    Mike Conti is owner of Pugsly's Traditional Barbershop and Pugsly's Sideshow, both in Kingston New York. When Mike was 18 he started working in a garage, working with rust and making old things cool again. He's always been interested in Kustoms, hot-rods and motorbikes but barbering is what he is really passionate about. Mike's interest hit tipping point after enrolling in Barber College, and from there it became an all-out obsession. After a day in the class room he would spend his entire night researching cutting techniques, styles, barbershop history and culture. His research inspired him to do more than mimic the look of an old-school barber shop, but to recreate the entire service. Mike ensures that everybody who walks through his door leaves with exactly what they wanted or something even better. You coul

    Last Monday we brought down our very own Shane Nesbitt for an education and social night at Lefty’s Barbershop in San Diego, CA. We had barbers from all across Southern California join us for a chance to get together and learn some things from the man himself. We love when we get these opportunities to give back to the barbering community and come together to support one another.
