In the Winter, Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. In the Summer, Cal Tjader
What product do you use the most of?
Ha! Recently, Barbercide and hand sanitizer. But seriously, the styling powder works for just about everyone.
What’s the best tip for someone visiting the area?
Grab a Mai Tai, a stogie and dip your toes into the great Pacific Ocean.

Call the shop (949) 496 – 4644, or text your barber for an appointment.
Who is the shop’s biggest barbering influence?
Master Barber Jim Rogers from Solana Beach, Sand Diego.
What is your favourite shop (other than your own)?
Five years ago we had a fire at Kings Club that put us out for about six months. We are forever grateful to the beauty parlor, Salon Revelation, that had a couple of stations available for us. We love our trade, and have a ton of respect for all the barbershops that are carrying on the art and craftsmanship of a proper traditional haircut.
