On two of our stays so far we’ve been near military bases. The first was Parris Island and now we’re near Pensacola Naval Air base. I don’t want to reenlist at this age, but I still feel at home around the bases and the service members.
Today, I found yet another reason to love it. Barbershops. I had forgotten what it was like to get a haircut from a barber that does thousands of them. Jodi usually cuts my hair, but she’s out of town this week. Plus, I can’t find our clippers. Anyways, on the rare occasions that I have to go to a chain barber it takes me a while to explain how to cut my hair and then it usually ends up short of expectations.
But, not at a barber that deals with the military. I barely have to say a word. High fade, #2 or #3 on top, leave some bangs and skin tight at the bottom. Done and done. The barber I went to today in Pensacola even used hot shaving cream and a bic razor all around. Fantastic!
As always, I find places using Yelp. The reviews are often a life saver. Don’t forget to check in and leave your own reviews.
