"Create your own visual style... let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others." - Orson Welles
---------
As a Barber and as a business owner, it's important for me to always try to look my best because men's grooming is all inclusive of hairstyles and fashion alike. When client's come in looking for my professional advice and opinions on what kind of haircut would best suit them, I always assess what they're wearing and ask how they dress for the type of work that they do (in the event that it's different from how they're already dressed). The haircut is an extension of a client's personality and sense of style, so it is only befitting then as their Barber for me to personally own and live by the information and advice that I am giving them. Now, while I myself don't have hair anymore, my credibility comes by way of how they see me, by how I'm dressed, and by how I carry myself in their presence, so a clean and professional sense of style conveys that I know my subject matter when giving them a consultation on hairstyles. We only get about 7 seconds to make a first impression on someone based upon how they see us, so as Barber's it is still very important to look professional, if for nothing more than for us to look credible at what we do. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒ΄πŸŒΊβ˜€οΈπŸπŸ€™πŸ½

"The Lord can give, and the Lord can take away. I might be herding sheep next year." - Elvis Presley
--------
40 years to the day that Elvis passed away, and i can clearly remember the day it happened because my Mum started crying at the news when it was announced on tv back in New Zealand. His music influenced my childhood, and still does to this day as every song reminds me of the love my parents always showed towards each other growing up, and my parents love and marriage is what sets the bar for me. This quote is appropriate for each of us daily, because we never know what today nor tomorrow will bring, so enjoy the ride, make lasting memories, laugh and love and enjoy and appreciate the ones you love, and remember that life doesn't come with a dress rehearsal,.....live and live your life while you're still blessed to as tomorrow is never guaranteed to any of us. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸŒΊπŸŒ΄β€οΈπŸβ˜€οΈπŸ€™πŸ½

Gentleman's tip: "Throughout my life, I grew up watching my Dad always romancing my Mom, and in the very simplest of ways that always, always, always put a smile on her face. One of the most consistent things he would do for her is write little love notes, that alway started with "To My Darling Cecilia..". He would make homemade cards for her, drawing flowers all over the cards, and write to her in the most perfect cursive penmanship. These notes and cards were personalized from his heart, made with effort and purpose and love, something that no mass produced store bought card could ever truly convey.
Gentlemen, if you want to win her heart, or keep her heart, then do the things that will earn her heart, because your special woman deserves that extra personalized efforts of love. #theartofbeingagentleman #manup #mjsolofa #mjsolofamensgrooming" β€” @mjsolofamensgrooming @theartofbeingagentleman #newagegents

Rarely do we show ourselves in less than perfect condition on social media. But real life doesn't always look good. This is what recovering from a tonsillectomy looks like at age 44. Fortunately, I've got my partner in crime to help me heal. It's his first time watching the Tour de France. He sat quiet and was fascinated by it. Somehow, that made the pain more tolerable. #theadventuresofmeandenzo #theartofbeingagentleman

Obligatory proud Dad's photo of his baby's first day of school,..."The Boss" is officially a High School freshman now! Have a blessed first day of school @jordyyjade, may our Heavenly Father above watch over you and guide you through this new chapter of your journey, and may you forge new friendships while fostering old ones, create new memories and make new milestones, and most importantly, enjoy the process and journey ahead. Work hard, always do your best, stay humble, walk in faith, and never, ever, stop chasing your dreams for the happy future and life that my so deserve. Love you Jordy, your family is so proud of you!! βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½β€οΈπŸŒ΄πŸŒΊπŸβ˜€οΈπŸ€™πŸ½

It's not uncommon for men to feel they are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders, especially if they've been raised to have strong work ethic, to provide for their families and to never show weakness or vulnerability. But a gentleman is only as strong as the company that he keeps, so on his weakest and most vulnerable days he finds greater strength and comfort knowing his special woman is by his side comforting him and reassuring him that he is not alone in his journey, and that he has the love and support of someone that will have his best interests in mind regardless of what life throws at him.

With Barbering being seen as more of a trend than a trade in recent years, there has been a lot of innovation by way of men's grooming products, advancements in cutting tools and equipment, and improvements to the education of cutting techniques and systems. But with trends come culture-vultures, non-Barber people and businesses who look to take advantage of what's popular with the masses, and lately I've seen a lot of junk products, gimmicky techniques, false industry prophets and even fake Barbers. This message isn't for them, but rather it is for those of us who really love the Barbering trade and operate with authenticity to honor and preserve the true culture. Stay true to the purpose of why you became a Barber, don't sell out for what you think is going to get you quickly paid and popular, and don't compromise the values and prestige of the trade to jump on the next bandwagon of what's hot. Slow and steady always wins the race, hard work and patience always guarantees success over taking short cuts, and authenticity in a service related industry where people are the priority will always outlast a company that is only in it for the people's money. If you're going to be a Barber, be it for the right reasons. While growth is always important, discerning what helps Barbering grow and what sets it back is imperative while this trend stays popular. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒ΄πŸŒΊβ˜€οΈπŸπŸ€™πŸ½

So grateful and humble for the recognition by San Francisco lifestyle blog @7x7bayarea for recognizing our little Parlor in Berkeley as one of the best Barbers/Barbershops in The Bay Area for the second year in a row. With so many amazing Barbers and Barbershops throughout the Bay Area, it is with the utmost grace and humility that we thank @7x7bayarea for the honor and for recognizing our hard work and efforts, especially with us being such a little fish in a big pond. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒΊπŸŒ΄πŸβ˜€οΈπŸ€™πŸ½

Through fellowship, iron sharpens iron as one man sharpens another, so my hope is that there will be much fellowship in all of Barbershops across the lands, so that both Barber's and client's leave the shop today as better versions of themselves. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸŒΊπŸŒ΄πŸβ˜€οΈπŸ€™πŸ½

Flashback Friday pic in celebration of the 44th Anniversary from the birth of hip-hop! I first fell in love with hip-hop back in 1984, when the movie "Beat Street" hit the big screen back in Western Samoa, and as a small town island boy far removed from the US, I was in awe of the music and the fashion and the culture. The buses back in the islands were always wired with loud stereo systems, so my friends as I would always wait after school at the market place for the buses that pulled up blasting "Beat Street Breakdown" by Grand Master Melle Mel,.....but we'd get bamboozled once we got on the bus because the driver would switch the cassette tape right back to a Samoan band for the old people to listen to. We'd try to copy the moves from the movie, dancing in flip flops or barefoot because no one could afford sneakers, and usually when we battled, it would be over before it began because we all had the same moves and usually someone's flip flop would fly off during a backspin! Beat Street started my love of dancing and hip hop culture and music, and while I never had much in my b-boy arsenal, it was always just enough to show my love for her. πŸŽΆπŸŽ΅β€οΈπŸŒ΄πŸπŸŒΊπŸ€™πŸ½πŸ•ΊπŸΌ

Back to the Parlor today for what I anticipate to be another week of filled with good fellowship and friendship with new and old clients alike. It's a busy time for most Barber's, as there is usually a spike in Barbershop traffic due to all of the back to school haircuts to be had, so remember if you're visiting a walk-in based shop be sure to bring a book, a fully charged phone, a cup of coffee and a lot of patience as your Barber(s) do their best to work through any extra volume of clients they may have. And while you may be tempted to cut your own kids hair at home to save a few dollars, find a good Barbershop that's in your price point to have it done right, as no kid wants to go to their first day of school only to be ridiculed for having a bad haircut....don't be the reason that your son becomes "that kid" on the first day of school. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈβ˜€οΈπŸŒ΄πŸŒΊπŸπŸ€™πŸ½

Confidence is something that has to start from within us, but there is no denying how much a good haircut and an even better haircut experience can improve a gentleman's appearance and in that instance also help boost his self esteem and confidence too. Many a man has walked into a Barbershop feeling like his life is misaligned, and the act of getting a good haircut often has him leaving the Barbershop ready to conquer the world once again. A few shots after giving my colleague Barber Noe @noe.casares @noe.casares @noe.casares a quick trim last week after hours. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸ₯ƒπŸπŸŒ΄πŸŒ΄β˜€οΈπŸ€™πŸ½

Today marks the 5 year anniversary from the day that "The Boss" @jordyyjade and I signed the lease and got the keys to what would become our family business, a 280 sq foot room that would be converted into what is now fondling referred to as the Parlor. When we signed this lease, I had absolutely no clients in Berkeley, was living on limited disability income from the State after recovering from hip surgery, and honestly didn't have much money saved up to afford to fail. But I had prayed for an opportunity, and God granted it, and I was willing to take the leap of faith and trust in His plans for me because He only gives us what He knows we can handle. Many others had taken similar leaps of faith, including my parents in their many efforts to always provide a better life for my sisters and I, and I give God all the glory for the blessing of faith and courage to sign that lease despite the odds, as His plans still allow this business to thrive, prosper, and provide for myself, my children, and now for my Barber's and their respective family's too. "The Boss" and her brother and I appreciate everyone who has, and who continue to, support our small family business over the years,....may God's blessings be as abundant in your lives as they have been in ours. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’ˆβœ‚οΈβ€οΈπŸ‡ΌπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ΄πŸβ˜€οΈπŸŒΊπŸ€™πŸ½πŸ”‘
