Barber Tip:
I learned from a friend that you can use a really nice horse hair shoe polish brush set to keep things clean during clipper work.  It’s great to keep your man clean while executing a fade or taper and it helps me see what I’m doing much better.
Take it up a notch: Whenever possible, involve all 5 senses in each service.  For me, nothing says “high-brow” like a spritz of Royall BayRhum on the brush.  (Don’t forget to keep those brushes CLEAN)
