Top 5 Haircuts

#1The flat top haircut

The flat top has been around for as long as I can remember which is why I picked it as the first of the top 5  haircuts .It’s been around it seems forever. I wore one as a kid into my high school years before losing my hair. The flat top was a great haircut for making your face look slimmer as the sides would be real short as the top would look longer drawing your face to look longer and even make you look thinner as most haircuts with contrast do with the top being longer than the sides.

#2 the buzz haircut

The buzz cut is a haircut that is a low maintenance haircut that is a haircut that many parents give their kids in the beginning of the summer so that they can make it through the summer without getting another on before starting school in the fall and creates a round appearance to the face especially when growing it out after several months. not recommended for over weight people as it will make you look heavier.

#3 the scissor haircut

Many men prefer a scissor cut rather than a clipper cut that are wearing their hair longer and want to feather or slick back their hair. Scissor hair cutting gives a better edge on the hair ends that will last longer than a clipper cut but don’t make a big deal out of it if you have short hair because it wont make a difference in the way your hair looks unless you only get trimmed every couple months or you are keeping your hair on the longer side.

#4 the long haircut

Long hair has its own category because it depends entirely on the person growing their hair on what they think is long. I have had many clients say that they wanted long hair but it is always different for every client on what they think is long. never the less long hair should be trimmed with nothing but scissors and there should be a involved conversation about what the client actually wants from the barber or stylist at the time of the haircut. bringing a picture is always helpful to the barber or stylist performing the service and will get the client the best service possible compared to trying to explain it the barber or stylist.

#5 Trending haircuts

Trending haircuts are what the new styles are in the last year or so. New styles this year include the gentlemens cut,the faux hawk,and the Under cut. Amongst many other variations of these haircuts that have evolved from these styles over the last year. Many of our clients at Cruisin’ Style Barber Parlor over the last 10 years since having smart phones have brought us pictures of the styles they have wanted and we love having the input to follow! If you really want  the styles you see around you on the street and on tv and magazines then you should bring your barber or stylist a picture to look at.[wpseo_opening_hours id=”undefined” ][wpseo_address id=”undefined”][wpseo_map id=”undefined” width=”400″ height=”300″ zoom=”-1″ map_style=”roadmap”]

Having a beard these days is very trendy and having the newest hair style to go with it is what makes it “pop”. At Cruisin’ Style we keep up with current styles and trends that pop up in places like LA, New York, and Philadelphia. Cruisin’ Style is in the Heart of West Chester Pennsylvania where new trends seem to show up as quickly as they do in big cities. This barber shop is where you want to be if you are looking for a change of scenery from your run of the mill barber shops. The barbers here are all trained professionals and are licensed in barbering; not cosmetologists that work in a barber shop like a lot of places these days. These barbers can cut and style all lengths of hair from pony tail length to bald fades.  Shaving is a lost art form these days but at Cruisin’ Style Barber Parlor they keep this tradition alive and well with a premium hot lather shave that consumes close to a half hour including a pre shave oil treatment, hot lather, and hot towels followed by a clean shave and cold towel treatment and astringent to close pores afterward. The hot lather shave is a gentlemen’s facial of sorts. Every guys should have a hot lather shave performed at least once in their lifetime and should do it at Cruisin’ Style Barber Parlor. Cruisin’ Style offers hair cuts to all ethnicity’s and is kid friendly and uses compressed air to sweep hair off their clients; the kids love this part of the service! Barba is the Latin word meaning beard or stubble which is the base word in barber which is kinda funny because most so called barber shops in the area don’t shave or shape and trim beards. Gentlemen’s cuts, fades, flat tops ,blow outs, long hair, they do it all at Cruisin’ Style Barber Parlor. As a hub of the community you can find out just about anything that is happening in West Chester on a daily basis including what the new hot spots are in town to eat and drink at or if your new to town you can even ask advice on a doctor or dentist; maybe even a tattoo shop like Extreme Ink on market street. Cruisin’ Style Barber Parlor is a comfortable setting for guys to walk into and feel like they belong on their first visit with a garage atmosphere, big screen Tv’s with sports on most of the time, and always a topic on the floor for discussion about something local like sports or local development but leave your religion and politics at the door! Located at 135 west Gay street it is very convenient to get to being on the most popular street in West Chester. Parking is available on the street and in public lots and parking garages close to the store.
