The Straight Razor Shave Experience

Here at J-Town Barber Shop of Louisville, KY, we believe in the straight razor shave experience!  It's not just about getting the beard removed, but more about getting a smooth shave and having a very relaxing experience!

Tradition Returns
Back in the day it was a common thing to see a man getting a shave in a barber shop. I suppose convenience caused this tradition to go away.  But it has returned!  At J-Town Barber Shop we’ve brought back the steam towels and the hot lather machines!  Now many men are enjoying a relaxing service not seen for decades.

Not only is it relaxing, but there are practical benefits as well.

Benefits of the Straight Razor Shave
Shaving with a single, straight blade is actually easier on your skin than shaving with a double or triple-blade razor. 

Why is this? Two of the most common problems with shaving -- razor burn and ingrown hairs -- are directly attributable to using more than one blade.

In the case of razor burn, a triple-blade scrapes the skin three times as much as a single blade. This leads, of course, to three times the irritation.

As for ingrown hairs, those are caused by the multi-blade technique of pulling the hair out and cutting it below the line where it penetrates the skin. When the hair grows back, it can grow back under the skin.

Come in today and begin to enjoy the barber shop as a place to see friends, relax and enjoy yourself.  Like I said… Pamper yourself with a straight razor shave at J-Town Barber Shop!

The Art of the Flat Top

The Art of the Flat Top
One of JTown Barbers of Louisville, KY professional services the flat top is done with electric clippers to cut the side and back hair to or near the scalp, and then more intricate cutting is done on the top hair to achieve a level plane. The flat top can be achieved in various forms or styles. Starting with the sides and back, the length can vary from half an inch to totally bald. The bald look flat top must still be blended into the top with no shadow or line seperating the two areas. The top can be at various lengths as well, depending on the clients hair and how easily their hair stands up.

Maintaining a Great Flat Top
The key to a great flat top is making the hair stand straight up before the final square look is achieved. A good stiff gel is a good tool to use to give the hair support -- to get it to stand up. At JTown Barber Shop in Louisville Ky. we sell many great products including REDKEN FOR MEN –STAND TOUGH hair gel as the best for this purpose. STAND TOUGH gel will help the flat top “stand up” but won’t flake and is water soluable. REDKEN STAND TOUGH GEL is used in small amounts to achieve the goal but won’t be felt in the hair. The hair is blow dried –completely dry --to stand straight up. All water must be dried out of the hair before final cutting or the hair will fall and perfect ion will not be achieved. Wax can be used to stiffen the front of the flattop and to achieve a “line across the front if desired.

Because the shape of a flattop is, by definition, not compatible with the round shape of a human head, there can often be a spot on the very center of the top that is buzzed shorter to achieve a flat surface, almost to the point of being shaved. This area is called the "landing strip," because this area of the head with shorter hair resembles a grassless aviation landing area. The flat top can also be styled longer to achieve a more natural look. Because the haircut is so short and quickly grows out of its precisely-cut shape, maintenance haircuts are required at least every few weeks, and many flat top wearers get haircuts as often as once per week.

Come on in to JTown Barber Shop of Louisville, KY and get your hair care needs dealt with in a professional, fun, and positive atmosphere!  Don't forget our deal of the week:

Hair Tip of the Week: Preventing Hair Loss

This week's tip involves the prevention of hair loss, something males and females are both facing in today's society.  With the advance of technology, and the demand for a solution, hair loss treatment has become something doctors, physicians, and the laymen have studied to counteract.  As we mentioned last time, having a healthy diet plays a vital role in your hair health.  But preventing hair loss has a lot of variables.  The one that we have narrowed in on at this point, is the hormone DHT.  DHT is a hormone that some hair is sensitive to, and others are not, according to Bosley experts.  The hair on the top of the head seems to be less resistant, thus begins to thin, or fall out.  The hair in the back and on the sides of the head, seem to be resistant to DHT, thus staying in tact as time goes on. 

JTown Barbers and Style Shop has looked into providing a solution to our customers who are concerned about hair loss.  In addition to the hair services we provide, we also provide Bosley hair loss treatment products in the shop.  If you would like a great hair cut, and some advice on what to do about thinning hair, we have a solution for you.

We hope this week's hair tip was a blessing to you.  Come back next time for more hair tips and hair information on how JTown Barbers can better serve your family's hair care needs.

  1. Salmon
  2. Dark Green Vegetables
  3. Beans
  4. Nuts
  5. Poultry
  6. Eggs
