Barber & Co. Makes Grooming a Lifestyle

barber and co
Barber & Co. is a coalition of full-service barbershops and grooming products for men residing in the Yaletown district of Vancouver, British Columbia. They offer simple solutions for those flaunting sharp contemporary styles as well as the keeping-it-simple, traditional men. In other words, whether you’re the guy sporting a full-beard with a Caesar cut or the one with a baby face and a fade, Barber & Co. has the essentials for whatever lifestyle you fancy.

With a plethora of goods and barbershops in the grooming market, it’s tough to weed out the sub-par from the greats. A good place to start is to find which companies are passionate, transparent, and hold their craft and products to a high-standard of excellence. Barber & Co. does just that with their intimate social club atmosphere, Academy program, and handmade, natural products.

These natural moisturizing ingredients, such as Bergamot Orange and Jojoba among others, are designed to keep your face feeling and looking healthy. Traditional skincare products are crafted with detrimental chemicals and synthetic ingredients that can deplete your skin of moisture and damage future hair growth.

If you live in Vancouver or are visiting and need a fresh cut, make sure you stop by one of their five locations throughout the city. Each shop boasts an eclectic environment with talented barbers, along with their skin and hair products. Barber & Co. is also opening a new shop in Toronto.

And if neither of the former suit your circumstances, you can still groom with the best of them by browsing their online store. Take a look their process and delve into the rundown on some of their homemade products below.
