Increasingly, we are witnessing the rebirth of the barber profession throughout France and in several European countries. To our greatest joy! This profession, which has existed for several centuries, is being reborn under the impulse of big brands and lovers of retro style. The return of barber work is also favored by the current trends of the well-groomed beard.
A gradual return of hairdressers
It is no longer uncommon in Europe to see a famous brand hire a barber to take care of their employees’ beards. This is the case of Tommy Hilfiger or Kenzo who find this an opportunity to relax. But if we include shaving in the distraction, it is proof that the man of the 21st century takes care of himself more and more. The theme of beard maintenance, that is to say the use of a barber, is therefore a necessity, and above all one of relaxation.
Now we see the barber as a specialist and more precisely as a beard beautician. So we go to his house not only to remove the hair from his chin, but also to relax. For this reason, hairdressers also offer other services such as moments of relaxation.
Vintage at the heart of the revival of the barber profession
In recent years, we have seen the return of certain old fashions, particularly when it comes to clothing. It is also about the beard, which has become a beauty tool like any other. We speak, for example, of the Italian beard or the hipster beard. Thus, the barber who works in a hairdressing salon in Paris, for example, abandons today’s classic accessories, such as the electric razor, to opt for much more traditional and ancient tools such as the badger or even the hair clipper. .
Thus, choosing to shave your beard at a barber has become a fad borrowed by both young and old. The barbers are backalso thanks to the very careful image of the man. Many people return to the barber to benefit from his advice, especially when it comes to protection against razor bumps, as he is considered a specialist.
Some well-known hairdressers in France
The phenomenon affects all major cities in Europe, from Brussels to Berlin through London and Paris. But in France there are already famous barbers. In Lille, it is the Atelier Barbier that makes vintage fashion enthusiasts smile. In the capital Paris, the best known are Les Mauvais Garçons. These two barbershops certainly cater to enthusiasts who want to get a haircut. But most of all, they allow them to style their cleverly trimmed chins.
Its popularity has caused more and more people to request this service from ordinary barbershops. A growing demand, which forces hairdressers who wish to adapt by adding a new thread to their bow.
