It’s Barber Time

The barber’s trade has a long history; razors have been found among relics of the Bronze Age (circa 3500 BC) in Egypt. Also men in Ancient Greece would have their beards, hair, and fingernails trimmed and styled by the κουρεύς (cureus), in an agora, which also served as a social gathering space for debates and gossips.

Now it is a necessity for the man who takes care of himself. In Athens a gentleman can do it with style; attractive shops wait to give you the best barber experience; the only thing you must do is to pass through their glass doors and let yourself to the professionals. These barber shops are influenced by Anglo-Saxon style and each is decorated extremely carefully to give such an impression. It’s barber time!
