Can you recall your first or early barbershop experiences?

My gramps took my brother and me to Roy's when I was around 4. Everyone went to Roy - he smoked like a chimney, I remember enormous plumes of blue smoke hanging in the air of the tiny shop. If you didn't squirm too much he gave you a dime after the cut.

Give us a barber's trade secret to help improve our appearance...

Keep it natural; go with the flow of your cow-lick (the swirl on the back of your melon) to avoid a lumpy misshapen 'do.
