This weekend was one for the books. 📚 Yes @oldscoolnewblood is actually shaving my face; and NO I’m not going to grow a beard. It was an honor to have Jeramie shave my face, he’s extremely talented.. not to mention he’s my mentor and I will take every opportunity to learn from him. I believe it’s important for women in the industry to have idea what it feels like to have a blade on their face; I was required to receive a shave in barber school for that very same reason. I’m sure a lot of you are thinking that my hair is going to grow in darker or thicker, but I’m here to tell you it won’t. Has anyone ever heard of the term Dermaplaning? Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation using a 10 gauge scalpel which removes the top layer of dead skin as well as facial hair. This service is popular amongst the entertainment industry because it eliminates that peach fuzz that makes makeup appear Cakey. So what makes it any different than shaving? Prepping the skin and a great experience. Let me know your thoughts below; I’d love to hear everyone’s opinion. ⚡️ #cutthroatclaire #oldschoolnewblood #portlandrazorco #shaving #straightrazor #cutthroatrazor Photo by: @therealhunterlea 📸

Believe it or not, I’m a VERY self conscious person... especially when it comes to my appearance. I’ve been growing my hair out since September, and making it a point to visit @justinthomashair whenever my hair is pissing me off. Justin has helped me feel as feminine and beautiful as possible during such an awkward stage. He always forces me out of my bubble when I’m in his chair, and pushes me to be more confident and see that I am beautiful. Justin may not understand what those visits to the salon mean to me; but I will tell you that I always walk out of there feeling 10x more confident about my self and for a little while I actually believe that I AM beautiful. Thank you for always being a friend and encouraging me to love myself more. ❤️ Love you big bro! #itsmorethanahaircut #rcblk #justinthomashair

“The barbershop is a bastion of masculinity, a place of ritual and sociability. Inside it’s doors, the barber serves as a confidant and confessor, a master of elegance in whose hands men’s place their trust as well as their hair.” - (The Barber Book) Fun fact: Beard trims are my favorite ⚡️ #cutthroatclaire #barber #beardtrim #chopshopbarberco #chicoca #chicostate #buttecounty

Here at Chop Shop Barber Co. We take pride in the products and tools we choose to use. Here’s some info about what we use in our shop! 💈 Our razors are made in Portland, OR by an amazing company called @por@portlandrazorco The blades are made with cascade steel, which has an extremely fine grain structure that results in a incredibly sharp but smooth cutting edge. The scales are made with G10 fiber glass, that is practically indestructible and non reactive with hospital grade disinfectants. The pins and washers are stainless & will hold up to years of abuse. In my opinion you can’t find a better razor on the market. With their knowledge and attention to detail, I am proud to say that this is the only razor I’ll ever use in the shop, not to mention I’m proud to say the only disposable items we use now are Sanek Strips. • • • With that being said we also stopped using talc, and started using @lov@lov@loveyourclientnaturals Barber Powder. Long term exposure to Talc can cause harmful and potentially life threatening side effects like ovarian, endometrial, and lung cancer. For barbers and hairstylists that use these products daily it can lead to a variety of respiratory issues like wheezing, coughing and other lung irritations. @loveyourclientnaturals is 100% natural/ Vegan that includes ingredients that are essential for skin care. •Arrow Root - light, soft, absorbent powder that can help dry blemishes and rashes. •Calendula Flower - anti inflammatory properties that help speed the healing process, increases blood flow to skin cells, reduces appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and visibility of scars. •Kaolin Clay - soaks up excess oils and stale sebum. •Vitamin E - antioxidant & moisturizing We will always choose quality over quantity; and companies like @portlandrazorco & @loveyourclientnaturals are ones we will continue to support and use daily. Thanks for reading! ⚡️ #cutthroatclaire #chopshopbarberco #portlandrazorco #loveyourclientnaturals

Instagram, meet Kenny. Kenny isn’t able to lay back fully for a shave; therefore I shave him in an upright position. He’s been to many different barbershops looking for a great shave; unfortunately I’ve heard stories from him about barbers taking a trimmer and foil shaver to his face just to get it done and over with, or barbers avoiding him completely when they realized who the shave was for. These kind of actions are appalling and unacceptable to me; I don’t care what age you are, what disabilities you have, what skin color or hair type you have... whoever walks into our shop for a service we provide; it is my job to preform said service to the best of my abilities. Being accommodating to certain individuals can be challenging at times; but the feeling you get seeing a smile on someone’s face after all is said and done is worth every challenge presented. We had a blast today, we shared some laughs and stories and Kenny left the shop looking dapper as hell with a smile on his face so big his wife said it had been awhile since she had seen such an expression on his face. Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves and be pampered every once and a while; and no one should walk into a barbershop or hair salon and feel unwelcome. A great barber is a barber for their community; not their ego. #cutthroatclaire #beselfless #straightrazor #traditionalstraightrazor #cutthroatrazor #traditionalbarber #straightrazorshave @portlandrazorco @behindthechair_com @barberevo Photo & Video Credit: @dlmadethecut 📷
