Barber Shop, San Marino

Oak Knoll Barber Shop is one of those places that represents a slice of Americana. It's a small shop that offers regular haircuts for men and the barber skillfully utilizes a traditional straight-edge razor and hot shave cream for a nice, clean finish around the edges. It has a barber pole out in front, and antique chairs inside. I hope this type of shop does not become a dinosaur due to the increased competition from unisex style salons. There's just a cool, old-school masculinity about real barber shops.
