Barbershops captures the spirit of these moments in a unique book that unites photos and interviews to bring the reader a slice of barbershop life. It features characters like Menick the sports barber, whose salon floor is a painted replica of a hockey rink and who hosted a TV series
from his chair; Jimmy, whose collection of taxidermy is a bizarre testament to his love of hunting; Pierre, the poet barber who sings opera and dreams of Greece; Poquito, whose shop is so busy that he sometimes stays overnight, sleeping in his barber-chair; and Mike, the bowling barber whose trophies line the walls of his shop.
