A great deal has been made of the decline of the classic American barbershop over the past few decades. In place of the original format, countless replacements were born—from the completely impersonal and efficiency-driven franchises with a constantly rotating crew of beginners or burnouts to the highly stylized, ultra-hip stylists who were passionate but often made men feel a little silly.
In recent years, many have worked to create new businesses aimed at returning to the barbershop of yesteryear, with good haircuts at a reasonable price and barbers that truly know their clients—both their faces and their hair.
The Clubhouse of Winston-Salem has done an expert job of including all the best elements of the traditional (friendly, reliable, and well-trained staff specialized in men’s hair) with all of the best modern developments (a nice selection of complimentary cold beer while you get your hair cut, set appointment times, a familiarity with current trends, and a slightly raucous atmosphere that always makes for a good time).
We’d like to think that, in a way, Fulton & Roark is doing the same thing for men’s grooming as the Clubhouse, keeping the best of the old ways as we work make things even better. We are proud to call The Clubhouse our first salon partner.
