Today my husband and sons were invited to Gents of Brooklyn for some father and son quality time and a hair cut.
Long gone are the days of popping in your local barbers for a quick short back and sides. With todays men and youngsters taking more care of their appearance, men want more from their visit to barbers.
Barber shops in Cardiff have doubled over the past few years, it can be quite confusing for men to pick the right one. All offer a range of services so why is Gents of Brooklyn different?

Offering essential masculine maintenance in a relaxing environment, specialist skilled staff can offer you a truly bespoke service, tailored to your needs. Including cuts, styling, wet shaves and beard maintenance, grooming packages and experiences. They also sell a wide range of products.
My husband and sons were welcomed by friendly staff. Callum cut Harrison’s hair (3 years old ) and Sam cut Ethan’s hair (5 years old) After a thorough consultation with myself, the barbers began to cut my sons hair. I took advice when it came to my youngest sons hair as it is really curly, I thought it best I listen to the professionals. I was surprised to see how calm the boys were with the young men. Both my boys sat and chatted whilst their hair was being cut.
My husband had his hair cut by Josh, again a thorough consultation was taken before he had his hair cut. My husband said he felt relaxed and confident with the barber. He said the highlight for him was having a good chin wag with the barber and other customers, plus a bottle of beer!
One of the specialist services that Gents of Brooklyn offer is shoe cleaning. Fancy getting your shoes shined while you get a shave? No problem, Gents Of Brooklyn in association with Clean Kicks Wales are bringing back this lost craft every Thursday (extra cost).
Its quite amazing to see how clean, old, dirty trainers can look after Clean Kick Wales has worked there magic.
My family walked out of Gents of Brooklyn looking very smart indeed. Ethan loves his shorter hair and on reflection I am glad I took the barbers advice when it come to Harrisons curls.
