Fri., May 18, 12:30pm. Style of Man, 4450 Main St., Manayunk. 215.487.2820
"I came from a small Catholic high school to South Street, but quickly realized I couldn't work with women constantly--so much maintenance. My girlfriends told me about Style of Man and said this would be my spot. I'm a guy's girl, and I've been here 14 years. The female owners told me they wanted to cut the hair of men who were single, so they started this all-female barber/stylist team to focus on men. We wax eyebrows and unibrows and do back waxes. For cuts, it's more fine-tuning. We do the conservative business guy and the up-and-coming professional. Everybody wants to be messy--that Abercrombie, I-just-came-from-the-beach look. Guys gossip just the same. The single guys are talking about the beach now, and the older guys talk about their houses. I love my job--to me this is just talking with scissors. With 10 girls in a little salon, there's a lot of hormonal craziness, but we always know it'll be okay. We keep it cool."
