Bloke Barbers - Official Re-opening
Linq Media had the pleasure of working with one of Montreal's leading barbershops to showcase the safety measures they have put in place for their #covid re-opening. As described by Bloke, today’s barbering industry is built on principles of simple, no-frills offerings that were omnipresent in the 50s. The 1960s brought an end to widespread traditional barbershops, as men started growing bushy beards and long hair that barbers were simply not trained to cut.
The last 20 years, however, have seen a resurgence in barbershops, led by men’s desire to take care of their aesthetics the same way women have for decades. Men are getting used to a better overall experience—due to years spent getting their hair cut in salons—but most barbershops are still based on a simple, no-frills methodology.
For the most part, barbershops are just selling haircuts. Bloke, on the other hand, is more than a barbershop, it’s a lifestyle. While a good haircut is a must, Bloke goes far beyond, focusing on the experience and the process, with the goal of educating, grooming, and relaxing the modern man.
Here is a detailed list of Bloke Barbers Covid-19 measures and policies:
