It’s time to change your thinking.
Try to forget that we just called you “bub” and focus on the Trophy Room Barber Shop instead, an old-school barbershop with razors, beard oil and other tools necessary for shortening your hair length, hoping to soft-open Saturday in Kirkwood. (See the slideshow here.)
What you have here is a barbershop in its purest form.
Let’s see, there’s a revolving striped pole in the window. A barber named Rolando who’s legitimately interested in your life story. A growing collection of vintage trophies (starting with a 1956 Memphis sports car club cup). And a cardboard elephant head on the wall. Okay, maybe its second-purest form...
So to be clear: if you want to frost your tips, this isn’t really the place. But if you want to get something like a beard trim or a haircut that comes with a hot-lather straight-razor neck shave, a hot-towel facial and a back massage involving a motorized hand contraption... then this is definitely the place.
No offense to your tips.
