You boys are smart and you already know what I’m about to tell you: going to the barbershop is cool, right?
With the return of the precision fade and that Pompadour that you’re already sporting—and if not, then you won’t be left out of the equation—because where there are men, there will always be hair. Sometimes in the last place you’d expect.
Without having to actually go down that rather frightening route, I just wanted to tell you that last week I headed to The Godfather Barbers in Wellington, to talk to founder, Rodrigo (Rod) Ballaminut and his boys Danny and Alex, about the comeback of some serious guy pampering.
Because let’s face it, being a manly man is okay; it’s like, so now, so masculine, so…HOT…the compress that just hit the side of your face, that is, priming it up before you go under that razor-sharp knife. Don’t worry though, no harm will come to you because when unleashing the manly dude inside yourself, the Godfather crew will take you all the way.
Yes. I’m looking at you!
If your beard needs a shape-up, look no further than The Godfather.
If your ears (just quietly) need trimming, look no further than The Godfather.
If a rabid, furry animal has escaped down your back and left an unsightly trail in its wake, look no further than The Godfather.
And if you just need to sit down, have a yarn, drink some home-brewed beer and tell someone about your girl problems, you know exactly what I’m going to tell you… head to The Godfather.
Because I assure you that when you leave the comfort of that leather chair; you’ve listened to some sweet tunes and rid yourself of some of that heartache and angst, you’ll be looking a darn sight better than you did when you first walked through that front door.
I could also go on for days about how girls will start tripping over themselves to get to you too, fawning over that fine masterpiece that is your face, but you already know that.
So go on. Be bold, be brave, unleash that crazy, wild demon/animal within, and get thee to The Godfather Barbers. Pronto!
But before you do, have a listen to the story that I produced for Radio New Zealand National (below).
