Beard Trim and Shape Barbershop Christchurch
Hairdressers back in ancient times were always known as barbers, stemming from the Latin word “barba“, which means beard. The practice can be traced to 5000 BC, when razors made from oyster shells or sharpened flint were discovered in Egypt.
Many hundreds of years later, barbershops became businesses where people went to get their hair tended professionally and in a pleasant and welcoming environment.
The team at Man Up Barbershop offer that kind of ambience; moreover, their beard work is undeniably excellent. Dealing with the hair that grows on the jaw, chin, upper and lower lips, cheeks, and neck is an art in itself and we pride ourselves on technique.
Right now, beards are in; all kinds. You might be surprised to know that there are actually around 30 named beards to grow, shape and manicure. Their descriptions take you right back – such as the Goatee and the Philosopher’s beard of ancient Greece; and the Mutton Chop beards of Victorian days. And have you heard of the Brett, Old Dutch, Garibaldi, Royale, the Van Dyke, or the Reed? Some of them, like the Short Chin Strap Beard (which emerged on the face of Abraham Lincoln in the late 18th century and on British rapper, Stormzy in 2000) have made an absolute comeback. Man Up Barbershop love the look of any well-manicured beard. Nonetheless, finding the right beard shape for your face is not always an easy task, but don’t worry: we’re here to help.
Some of our success stories include styles such as the classic Short Boxed beard: a cropped, spruced, well defined. It’s called a “boxed beard” because the lines of the beard are sharp and neatly frame the jawline within a bearded box. A Short Boxed beard is an ideal, universal style that fits any face shape and looks absolutely terrific.
Another popular (highly individualistic) look is the Beardstache: a beard-moustache hybrid that takes things way out there. A traditional Beardstache includes a thick and bushy moustache that naturally twirls upwards at the ends. To get that perfect luxurious twirl, we recommend The Alchemist beard oils, balms, and pomades.
These beards and others are fait accompli for Man Up Barbershop, sculpted into a classic look that frames your face and defines your masculinity.
