Best New Haircut

Old Bank Barbers

1100 W. 36th St., (443) 682-9969

Sons know the ritual: Your fathers take you to their barbers for your first cuts, which are choppy, haphazard, but serviceable. In junior high, mothers step in, eschewing quality for quickness with one-size-fits-all Hair Cuttery haircuts. No more, men. Head to Hampden’s Old Bank Barbers, a three-month-old operation that’s already turning heads. Regular haircuts are $15; styled cuts are $17. You’ll get that cut while sitting in an old-fashioned leather-backed barber’s chair and listening to sounds from vinyl records. Owner Daniel Wells, who’s been cutting hair for 10 years, offers full-face shaves with a cutthroat razor for $25. Combined with a haircut, it’s $35, a price that sounds steep until you hear what Wells is introducing next: free coffee (the good stuff) and whiskey (the better stuff).
