by | Oct 30, 2013

Movember is once again upon us – which means, for all you men out there (and ambitious women), it’s time to plan those moustaches. Visit any of these classy barbershops for a clean shave before you join the nationwide challenge. The Agency, by the way, has its very own Movember team

1. Gornik & Drucker’s

Beverly Hills, CA

For more than 70 years, Hollywood celebrities have come here for first-class grooming. It’s chalk full of history, too. A scene from the Rat Pack’s Ocean’s Eleven was shot here, and former gangster rivals Mickey Cohen and Bugsy Siegel supposedly got into shouting matches at this barbershop on more than one occasion. gornikanddruckershop.com

2. The Blind Barber

New York City, NY

Welcome back to the Roaring Twenties. The pros at the The Blind Barber settle you in with a complimentary cocktail. Then it’s time to kick back for a haircut or “Hangover Remedy Shave.” There’s even a Prohibition-era bar on site. blindbarber.com

3. The Churchill’s

Miami, FL

The Churchill’s – with its hardwood floors and Italian espressos – offers an old-world alternative to the white suits and piña coladas that Miami is known for. Their barbers have been shaving the fashionable Miami set since 1979. churchillspub.com

4. Baxter Finley Barber & Shop

Los Angeles, CA

There are only four seats at this popular vintage barbershop, but it’s worth the wait. The ambience is relaxing, with oak wood floors and restored, 100-year-old barber chairs. In addition to your shave, you can purchase custom products from the Baxter line of brushes, razors and hair supplies. baxterfinley.com

5. Tweed Barbers of Boston

Boston, MA

Tweed Barbers claims that no one on their staff has been cutting hair fewer than 10 years. As they put it, “We like to have fun, but we take our work seriously.” In a town that knows classic luxury, this place is a must. tweedbarbers.com

6. The Belmont Barbershop

Chicago, IL

A place that breathes hip, this is a great spot to people watch while getting your hair cut. Guys come from all over Chicagoland for quality trims, cuts and shaves in this timeless barbershop. Plus, enjoy a beer and a game of pool while you wait. belmontbarbershop.com

7. Persons of Interest

Brooklyn, NY

With two Brooklyn locations – one in Williamsburg and one in Carroll Gardens (the original) – this place embodies the New York of the 60s (chrome-and-leather chairs, black wood paneling). It’s like stepping into Mad Men for an old-fashioned chop. personsofinterestbklyn.com

8. Frank’s Barbershop

Knoxville, TN

Men of all ages flock here for Frank’s signature look – short, textured on top, easy to maintain hair. Plus, who doesn’t like a game of pool, darts or a frosty mugs of root beer while you wait? franksbarbershop.net

9. Aidan Gill for Men

New Orleans, LA

With more than 30 years of experience and a great reputation, Dublin native Aidan Gill specializes in the classic European shave. He also boasts one of the largest collections of antique barbershop pieces in the country. aidangillformen.com

10. The Shave

Beverly Hills, CA

The Shave celebrates “a male-centric atmosphere for the connoisseur of men’s grooming with class and style.” They don’t just focus on hair either, offering “skin therapists” who use products to combat dry, irritated or sensitive skin. With a cold drink, a leather barber chair and hot towels, this is a wet shave done right. theshavebeverlyhills.com
