"When did this whole haircut culture thing start?"


          

You know what I'm talking about. There seems to be an extra-emphasis on fresh cuts that I haven't seen since the late-80s, except now barbers seem to have 63 different types of fade.

How are you gonna just show off the decor but none of the product (outside of hair and beard care products)? The shops look nice but if I was their target customer, I'd probably avoid them because no one is showing off their cutting skills.

there were maybe 4 types of cuts being done, and most of them pretty basic. Now they're doing 11 different fades, designs are back. It's like 1990 again.

It involved close fades and lots of gel

A lot of times bangs

Sometimes rat tails hanging down the back

shit like this
http://i.ytimg.com/vi/IZimMLWzfEU/hqdefault.jpg

even now I think the majority of haircuts dudes that are into them are getting are slightly different and are more pointy to counteract the flatness of the hair texture.

but I feel you on the oldtimey barber shop thing

that said, the point about the posters not having black folks on them anymore is pretty funny

to me the last few years LA brought it back the older haircuts and all these kids followed suit, including NBA rookies and shit....then that trickled to younger kids around other states and countries. Kendrick and certain guy sin TDE had a big part in that too IMO

when ALL the 90's everything first came back...the flat tops, adjustable hats, colorful ass outfits. Well it was really a combo of 80's and 90's at once, because some folks were rocking the big gold chains too.

And speaking of adjustable hats, y'all catch how they fell off around 96-98 and you HAD TO have on a fitted...but came back around 07-08, and now you look like an old head if you have on a fitted?

and the haircuts were part of that phase, but then that left again....and LA dudes were just dressing like normal LA dudes but had those haircuts.....like i know SOOOO many people with Kendrick haircuts its ridiculous and majority of them are from LA lol...

You telling me you dont know anyone out there who has this cut

http://revive-music.com/wp-content/uploads/1556365_10152290789958092_885501008_o.jpg

that eventually turned into longer dreads on top cause they wanted to be different than the other LA dudes or more of a flattop look?

He bought a warehouse full of unused Starters, slapped his TI$A and portrait logos on them and got youngsters like Chris Brown, Big Sean and Tyga to wear them. I'll even go as far as to say he brought back the tag culture because his caps had the tags on the button. That was late 80s shit. If you wore Air Max, Jordans, Flights or Timbs, you had to keep the tag on.

But even the barber shop fade competitions are MUCH BIGGER than they were 10-15 years ago, without question.

I DJ'd the one for Xotics in L.A...that shit was wild.

Even hearing them talk was wild. Dude who cut Pac's hair in Juice was seen as a true legend, some of y'all know him. They had a Juice fade competition too.

trendy haircuts. Especially the 30+ who can barely even keep a hairline LOL. But I think it's always been biggest for High School kids, even more so than college.

Most grown dudes aren't gonna be the ones getting those wild haircuts anyway, that's the college and HS kids. They're always the models for the subculture that exists.

And yeah, those battles are super super extra'd out, along with the exclusive kicks battles they had there. But it still made it feel like the whole haircut culture was huge now, even if only a few people go to those type events

it's a solid look tbh but they squad look like they just came off the assembly line w/ it.

i dig it cause i can rock it and white folks wont give me that weird look like it's not business appropriate. plus it's easier to maintain than picking out a fro.

Part of it is younger barbers using social media to flex and bring in new customers which, refer to the above.


Part of it is barbers tryna get chose by Wahl/Andis/various shear makers for sponsorship, educator/platform artist opportunities, i.e, G-Whiz and Wahl


Part of it is the perpetual continuing education aspect of the industry, especially as an educator.


In any case, I'm trying to get someone to take me under their wing.

My shop is open on Sundays

Now you would THINK this would be a great time to get it done. Folks already got their weekend cuts done on Friday and Saturday. WRONG. These cats got themselves and their kids in the shop. Kids getting some crazy shit that makes me wait even longer.

I wish I could do this myself without messing it up.
