Some of these barbershops have been open for decades, and ownership has often been passed down through generations. They're a reliable and consistent place to get an affordable haircut in town. But over the past few years, a new wave of barber shops have opened in the city.
If you've been out on George Street recently, you've probably noticed their impact. More and more men are walking around the city with new and more complex hairstyles. Whether they're opting for a tapered look, a longer flow, or a Hollywood-influenced fade, the change is noticeable.
Since Fogtown opened in the wake of Family Barber Shop downtown inthe market for increasingly stylized cuts has grown. According to Fogtown co-owner Chris Evans, the change in how men look at their appearance these days might just be because of Facebook.
Indeed, the ubiquitous presence of Facebook and selfie culture might be a defining culprit when it comes to why men are paying more attention to their look these days.

According to Evans, men's cuts have evolved quite a bit since he grew up in the slacker-infused s. If you were really combing your hair and giving it a side part and all that, it was just dorky.

They're not creating nothing new, it's impossible, I can tell you that," Harris said in an interview.
He has customers that have been coming to him since almost before they can remember, first getting their hair cut from his father, and later from himself.
Although you can grab a quick beer while you get your haircut at Fogtown, there's none of the drunken revelry that characterized the old shops.
A lot of alcoholic barbers," Harris told me. He had to have a drink of wine in the morning to get the shakes out of him. Harris recalls his father being a master of the straight razor shave, at any level of inebriation: Certain professions grow in and out of relevance, but as long as people's hair continues to grow, there will always be a need for barbers.
