Bubble Barbershop: Here We Go Again

The Hipster Barbershop came and went. Five months ago the headline read, “Hipster Barbershop Trend Arrives in Detroit.” Now the headline predictably reads, “High-End Detroit Barbershop Closes After 5 Months.” The business was built on $40 cuts and $50 straight razor shaves and this was considered to be “breaking new ground for a basic men’s cut in Detroit.”

This kind of frivolity may work in New York and San Francisco, but there are not enough moneyed hipsters here in this rustic-industrial, midwestern resurgence to support east and west coast-style novelty.
