Barbers and beauty therapists are everywhere, and it’s no surprise that they’re all looking for a paycheck.
But what if your barber isn’t even a barber, but an acupuncturist?
That’s the case for Johnnys Barber Shop in San Francisco, which has recently attracted attention for hiring a stylist who claimed to work as a professional massage therapist.
“We don’t have a massage therapist here,” said the barber on Wednesday, “but the other guys here are very skilled.
They do this very well, and they do it in a very professional manner.
They’re very happy to work for us, and we’re very proud of them.”
Johnnies Barbershop is a new addition to the city, and the company has been open since the late 2000s.
Its location in the Mission District is only a few blocks away from the iconic Johnnie’s Barbershop.
Its owner, Johnnie L. Johnston, says he’s not interested in changing his business model, and he has no plans to expand.
“I don’t see any reason to go anywhere else,” he told the San Francisco Examiner.
“If they really want to go there, I’m going to be there.”
Johnnie Johnston has been barbering for 40 years, but he has never worked as a barbershop, and that’s not unusual.
Barbershops typically employ barbers, who usually work for the owner.
But Johnnying’s is a different kind of establishment.
Johnston said he has only been a barista for about three years, and his job is different from that of other barbers.
Barber Johnnie is the owner of Johnnieds Barbers, which specializes in body art, hair care, and hair and makeup styling.
“People come in here and ask me about their hair,” he said.
“They say they want a baroque style of hair, and I’m like, ‘I don.t know if you’re gonna get that, but I’ll show you.'”
The barber also has an emphasis on “body art,” or hair that has a distinct look, like an afro, an eye, or a nose.
“There’s a lot of beauty that goes into body art,” Johnston said.
He added that his job allows him to be flexible, because he can work with anyone, including women and teens.
“It’s like a whole different experience.
People can come in and ask a lot more questions, and then we’ll have a really great experience for them,” he added.
Johnnyscuts barbershop isn’t the first barber in the Bay Area to use a stylistic background.
Last year, another barber named Johnnie, also in the San Jose area, opened Johnnymas Barbers on the corner of 19th and Mission Streets in Oakland.
The shop is owned by two other barber brothers, and Johnnius is the only one with a bar.
“The first one started as a beauty salon,” said Johnnie.
“But we were all inspired by the other bar owners, so we started doing this.
And I think it’s really good.”
It’s also not unusual for barbers to work from home, said Johnny, who has been performing barberships for 20 years.
But the barbers who work at Johnnias have also taken on a more professional approach to their work.
“When we work, we are not just a bar,” said BarberJohn.
“What we do is we are a professional barber.”
“Barbers are very professional,” said BarberJohn.
The new Johnniewas barberhop will open this spring, and Johnston said they will have “a good amount of appointments,” which will be limited to 20.
The barbers have a long history of doing barber jobs for the public, and their work ethic is a product of that.
Barriers and BarbersJohnnys owner Johnnie said he’s happy to have been chosen for the job.
“You can tell that he’s really a great guy, and really passionate about his job,” he continued.
“He’s got a great passion for his job.”
