Classic barbershop - barbers with 40+ years of experience! – This barbershop has been in the same place since the late 1950s and some of the barbers have been working there since the 1960s.
$16 for a haircut which includes clippers, scissors, comb and water. After the haircut, they use hot foam and shave the back of your neck with a straight razor and then massage your shoulders and back with a big machine.
Nothing fancy and you won't miss anything.
I've never been comfortable going to a chain/franchise place to get my haircut. I don't really like some recent beauty school graduate fumbling around on my head for 45 minutes, asking me a dozen questions about what I like/dislike about my hair or my 'hair care routine' (none of these I have an answer for), wanting to apply 'product' to my hair, then trying to convince me to buy $14 a bottle shampoo.
There are some 'nice' places in Atlanta to get your hair cut, but I have a problem paying $40+ for it, and then the experience is similar to the chain places.
Luckily I found Peachtree Battle Barber Shop. This is a true barber shop, with real, experienced barbers like I got used to my whole life back home in Alabama. I can walk in, tell the barber I want a 'trim,' and that's what I get. The limited conversation usually focuses on sports. They cut my hair, shave my neck with a straight razor (and depending on the existence/configuration of my beard, may give me a trim around the edges of that), and run a massage device across my shoulders (I've never encountered this before, and admittedly it sounds odd, but it is a pleasing way to end a haircut). All of this takes approximately fifteen minutes.
I used to live five minutes from here; now I've moved across town but I still drive here because I like it.
Skillful and Sensitive – This is a small, older type shoe shop. Although the owner/repairman may not be that friendly, once you start talking with him he tends to open up (soften him with a smile). However and most importantly, he is a SKILLED shoe repairman from the old days. I had a pair of boots I adored but the heel literally had a hole in it. Worse than that, it was one of those softer heels, without a tap. Not sure how he did it, but he like molded some type of heel together - and it is sturdier than it was before. I also took him a pair of sandals with a broken strap and he fixed them up quite nicely. His hours change from time to time but Saturday is a staple (call first). Don't take him cheap shoes - he won't repair them. LOL. He looked at me and said, "how much you pay?!?" I had a pair of shoes from 10 years ago that I loved and tried to sneak them in with some other pairs and he declined to fix them. I guess it was an insult to him because if he is going to take the time to do it, he wants his workmanship to last over the shoe-life. :) Turnaround time and prices are very reasonable (little hint - you can probably talk him down, especially if you have more than one pair). This is a great, reliable business but make sure you smile!
