Recently Uppercut Deluxe decided to make the trek up to San Mateo, California to the home of Stay Sharp Social Club Ambassador (SSSC), Shane Nesbit to host the first Union Night at Shane’s Barbershop & Shave Parlor.
Shane has been cutting hair for 11 years now and is seen as one of the original’s in the emerging Barber culture across the globe. Over the years, Shane has perfected his trade and now is often seen travelling regionally and internationally educating Barbers and Hairdressers on his tried and perfected techniques in men’s grooming.
With his own distinct style stemming from Northern California and rooted in Skateboarding, Punk rock and Tattoo culture we we’re stoked to invite some of the local Barbers / Hairdressers down to his shop for some tutorials.
Shane took the crowd through some epic and technical styles in his own signature way – safe to say everyone left feeling a lot more knowledgeable on barbering and how to use Uppercut Deluxe products to finish off some solid styles. (speaking of Uppercut Deluxe products, check out gifts for men, for some gift ideas such as goats milk soap for the men in your life.)
Once the tools where down, we kept the lights on with local DJ and friend of the shop DJ Eons spinning records and the good fellas at 805 brewing (www.805beer.com) suppling us with some cold refreshments and fellow Parlor resident Leo, owner of Killer Coffee making the best drip brew’s San Mateo offers.
Thanks Shane for having us and Cheers to the good times!
