The barbers at Emporio Man have spent years perfecting their haircutting techniques. Frankie Pe has been a licensed master barber in Florida since 1964, and his younger counterparts, Joan Cruz and Chad Blaize, both started honing their skills at age 15?Cruz in the Dominican Republic, and Blaize in Brooklyn's barbershops.
Thanks to their decades of practice, the three-man team is quite versatile. They're just as adept with precision haircuts and hot-towel shaves, and just as skilled straight-edge razors and machine ones. However, their barbershop's luxuries encompass more than top-notch products. During appointments, clients can watch the latest games on flat-screen TVs, smoke the shop's cigars, or engage in friendly competition over whose hair clippings fall the fastest.
