Guys, have you visited the New Male-Themed Hair Salons? In the old days, barbershops were places your Dad took you to “sit still, be quiet and get a sucker” to get your haircut like *he* wanted. Most times for guys, haircuts are a chore. You look through the hair style books at a haircut place and chose one that you think will make you look like the celebrity pictured. It never worked, because you visited a barbershop and not weight loss salon.
As time went on and “your Dad’s small town barbershops” went out of business to be video rental stores, a new hair salon was born – a place where a guy could get a haircut *he* wanted and be pampered.
There are many specialty barbers around now that serve guys alcohol, allow you to smoke cigars, talk politics or rockabilly music, sit in comfy chairs, but there should be more – and now there is.

Do you like to camp? Sure you do. Sleeping in the great outdoors, feeling the wind through your hair (or was it an ant?), gathering pine sap and needles on the bottom of your shoes everywhere you walk, scoffing at things like indoor toilets – you grab a shovel some (hopefully not poison oak or ivy) leaves and take care of your business by the big rock downwind. If you love camping like we think you do, then you’ll love “Camp Cutaway“.
Camp Cutaway is a barbershop in a campground. You’ll get your hair cut by our barber beauties out by the creek. Want hot water for your shampoo? You’ve got to fetch the firewood – lots of firewood. There is also adventure, too when the bears come by for their daily test of how secure the food locker is. When the bear sees you, your haircut becomes a cardio event as you run (while still getting your hair cut. There may be some unevenness here and there. You’ve been warned.) from the bear. If you crawl up a tree and evade the bear, your stylist will finish off your haircut with pine sap to make your hair look and smell like the great outdoors.
