FORWARD THINKING FASHION + BEAUTY FOR ENTHUSIASTS... A LUX LIFESTYLE DESTINATION CURATED BY BRIGITTE SEGURA

the ULTIMATE LUXURY SHAVE: NYC barbershop museum

Surrounded by opulence and in the feather-light hands of a Master Barber, the Ultimate shave and haircut are born again. And while trendy beard-friendly luxury grooming shops are popping up everywhere, there’s nothing like the authentic vibe + the experience of a 4th generation Master Barber. Somewhere in the Upper West side and far from my typical SoHo stops, I took a tour uptown at the NYC Barbershop Museum, and set up a beard-trim experience for one lucky young dude with founder and celebrity barber Arthur Rubinoff.

Here’s how it went, the shave gone transformation before-and-after, and why this is the best dude-friendly grooming experience to gift.

From the editor: I had told our model, Julien to let his beard grow in and to expect a fine groomed beard experience in a  in a place called the NYC BARBERSHOP MUSEUM.

Little did we all know that the idea of transformation from longer shoulder-length hair to short was also as a possibility for the model to consider… and the magic happened when the 21 year old met Master Barber Arthur,  and considered an undercut, and then more cut from his hair.

While waiting for the Barber x young man in the chair ‘transformation’ convo,  I took the liberty of taking pics of the amazing memorabilia from the 1880’s to the 60’s, the decadent chandeliers, shaving mugs, and antiques surrounding me in the glorious space.  They discussed hair texture on face and hair, maintenance (shaving tips) and how to keep the do groomed … and finally, a touch of man brow adjustment.

Arthur uses his own REAMIR natural alcohol-free and water-free products containing only healing oils blended with essential oils such which are used to groom, trim, and to maintain healthy scalp and beard.  They also help prevent ingrown hair patterns and neck irritation to keep skin smooth and clear.

The mid-century reclining barber chairs face a Gold rimmed mirror, and when ‘dipped for a shave’ the opulent view is crystal of course! I couldn’t help but sit in one of the kid chairs myself, thinking, what service could I possibly have here too ?!  This by far is the best pampered and authentic shave a guy can have, and makes a perfect gift!  Works for dads, bros, dates, and who knew ~ young students + millenials transforming to serious business!
