Before the invention of scissors, hair could only be shortened via naturally occurring escalator snags and inevitable bonfire curiosity. Snip strands the newfangled way with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a men's haircut at Brian Bunce Barbers in Perry Hall and at their new location in Bel Air (a $15 value).
Brian Bunce Barbers shears, snips, and shapes head fleece in its retro-inspired barbershop. A red-and-white checkered floor leads the way to vintage 1940s barber chairs, which, when sat in, instantly relax and improve the bench-press strength of any hairy heroes in need of mug renewal. Each barber station boasts its own plasma-screen TV framed by dark wood cabinetry.
Every headscaping concludes with a hot-lather neck shave so your loved one can stop tangling bling in your dorsal scruff. The waiting area feels more like a hip lounge than a barbershop—a 42-inch plasma-screen TV plays sports or sewing competitions to the patient patrons lounging in 100-year-old opera seats.
Brian Bunce Barbers was featured as one of Baltimore's best salons in Baltimore magazine:
- There are barber chairs from the 40’s, scalp massagers from the 50’s, two kids’ stations with a 50’s-era fire engine seat (plus a chipmunk seat from an amusement park), a waiting area with vintage opera house seats, and even a snappy silver tin ceiling. Such attention to detail also makes Bunce great at cutting hair for the whole family. – Jane Marion, Baltimore
