Shortly after moving to the Bay Area I set out to find a new barber. In Brooklyn, NY I had enjoyed frequenting a traditional barber shop, so I sought for the same experience in California. After floating around for a few months I discovered A Man’s World Barber Shop, a second generation barber shop and the oldest one in Walnut Creek. Darrell has been my barber ever since.

One day we got talking about how he’d like to diversify his clientele, so I offered to create and manage a Facebook page for him. It would serve as a cyber extension of his barber shop by keeping conversations happening between haircuts.

Our posts have included news articles about the barber industry, photos of interesting objects and happenings at A Man’s World Barbershop, and videos featuring Darrell where he discusses current events (a favorite was the last two years of the NBA Finals featuring his favorite team the Golden State Warriors).

It’s a lot of fun and we’ve been surprised at how much material we’ve found and how often barbering shows up in the news. Here’s our Christmas campaign from December 2015: “The 12 Days of A Man’s World Barber Shop.”
