Saying good bye to @adamdstanley was heart breaking and hard but we know he will smash it in Ottawa. Buuuutttt now we have @courtneywhynott filling his shoes. Her first day on the floor was booked solid which isn't a surprise with years of experience and an unprecedented level of service. Book with her and welcome her to the crew before she turns into one of those barbers that book two weeks out #halifax #downtownhalifax #halifaxbarber #halifaxbarbershop #halifaxhair #discoverhalifax #dartmouth #dartmouthbarber  #downtowndartmouth #dartmouthbarbershop #dartmouthhair #902 #novascotia #discovernovascotia #barber #barbering #barberlife #barbershop #traditionalbarber #canadianbarbers #supportyourlocalbarber  #internationalbarbers #sailorbups #sailorbupsbarbershop

One shop we love and respect is the crew at @hardgrind_ across the pond. Their no nonsense approach at business and cutting hair is respectable as hell. One of our crew posted this on their personal account and in the vein of what Hard Grind does, we want to share it here and leave this piece of motivation (or irritant to the people who do it) to mull over. No matter what industry you're in, remember, your customers and clients don't care about your jealousy of others and insecurity in your ability to do what you do. Industries thrive when everyone builds each other up #halifax #downtownhalifax #halifaxbarber #halifaxbarbershop #halifaxhair #discoverhalifax #dartmouth #dartmouthbarber #downtowndartmouth #dartmouthbarbershop #dartmouthhair #902 #novascotia #discovernovascotia #barber #barbering #barberlife #barbershop #traditionalbarber #canadianbarbers #supportyourlocalbarber #behindthechair #internationalbarbers #hardgrind

We get asked a lot about the shops policy and its origin. This has been written in our shop since the second month we were open. We had a guy come in with longer hair and wanted it all cut off. He left in love with his haircut. He stuck around and talked with the barber for 20 minutes after, bought product to maintain it, bought a shirt to help promote the shop, tagged us in a post on Facebook telling people to check us out then his girlfriend came home and saw he cut his hair off. That's when it all started. Fake accounts under different names on Google and Yelp leaving us bad reviews came popping up like a wildfire (which is about as lame as it comes). A little internet sleuthing found out it was this guy so we contacted him, called him on his shit, the reviews were taken down immediately and the back peddling on his part started. We told him to come in, tell us what he wrote in person and we would refund every penny and not ask for the shirt or product to be returned. A bit challenging yes, some would say unprofessional, but the days of businesses not standing up for themselves should be well over and done with. We still remember his response: "Can you e-transfer it to me? Im a little embarrassed I got caught and I would feel awkward coming in". Keyboard cowards are everywhere. Never let them dictate the progression and success of your vision. Two things should come from this: #1 cowboy up and say what you have to say in person. It's a haircut. Your haircut. We can make fixes without any type of damage to our egos. #2 if you're not wearing the haircut, no pay no say. It's your hair. Wear it the way you want.

Well look at that. We made it in to the finals for @thecoasthalifax Best Of Halifax. If you feel like it, why not throw us a vote for Best Barbershop. PLUS our very own @thedeadface and @thegentlebarber were nominated for best barber. There is a reason why other shops try to poach our crew and its because they are awesome at what they do. So you should throw them your vote too because they definitely deserve it. #halifax #downtownhalifax #halifaxbarber #halifaxbarbershop #halifaxhair #discoverhalifax #dartmouth #dartmouthbarber #downtowndartmouth #dartmouthbarbershop #dartmouthhair #902 #novascotia #discovernovascotia #barber #barbering #barberlife #barbershop #traditionalbarber #canadianbarbers #supportyourlocalbarber #behindthechair #internationalbarbers #boh2018 #sailorbups #sailorbupsbarbershop
