Mail Call....

So mail came and there it was staring me in the face my package from Layrite. I have been using the pomade for a long time now...hell I was the only barber in Spokane,Washington using this stuff. This package a bit different because not only did it have a fresh can of wax, hairspray and aftershave but it also had there liquid shave cream....and so far this stuff rules!!

Grab my coffee mug a few squirts of the cream into the mug....grab my shave brush and I am set. Lathers up nice and shaves off clean. Finish it off with a splash of the Hawleywood's #9 After shave and you are set for the day!!

Saturday at Reuben's

So I went and spent a few hours at Reubens yesterday...did a few simple cut...Got in over my head with a homeboys "taper" and just watched Reuben work for a bit.

We talked about an apprenticeship and he said that I could not work for free....his words were "Thats just not right" but what he did say was that he wanted to see me around the shop more often....watch, ask questions understand the tools...etc

Reuben is a good dude and I think he will work with me the best he can....really does not have room for another barber but at least he wants to help me and I do not have to quit my job or cut my hours back!!

Oh yeah and I did get to use my new Andis Nano magnetic gaurds this weekend....they are freakin' sweet!!
