A Fresh Haircut for Men: The Flow Factory
I recently got a new haircut. My buddy Mauricio recommended I try a “Latino Fresh” haircut. (I think he made the phrase up — but it’s catchy!)
Mauricio recently started a Bible study at a local Dominacan Barbershop. He connected me with is buddy, Christian, and I’m thrilled with the results.
Christian faded the sides, gave me a hard part, and lined up my beard (complete with a hot towel). It was a great experience. If you’re local and looking for something new, check out the guys at The Flow Factory.
A Quote I’m Thinking About
