If we learned anything from COVID it is that having no access to barbers can seriously impact your mental health and mood. For several months during the beginning of 2020, the world saw a mass shutdown of businesses and services which made people ask the question – what is an essential business?

Very soon we started to learn that barber shops are key components of our mental well-being. At House of Handsome, we want you to look and feel your best. Here are a few ways that having a fresh cut can impact your mental well-being:

Improve Confidence

We love seeing the look on our client’s faces after a fresh cut. Sometimes we can see a night and day difference in the way people carry themselves after a great haircut or coloring. If you have ever walked out of a haircut feeling like a million bucks you definitely understand this feeling. Haircuts are a great way to renew yourself on a regular basis and can keep you feeling great for weeks.

Get Social With The Barber

We want to preface this section by saying that if you have mental health-related issues, we highly recommend addressing them in a professional setting. That being said, the relationship between a barber and a client is a sacred one. Despite being a public setting, those private conversations you have with your barber really help take a load off. Obviously, we recommend seeing a counselor for more serious issues, but having a great barber that you can confide in is a great way to let out some steam, and vent about your manager at work or that friend that’s always late. At House of Handsome, we believe in being your friend as well as your barber.

Need A Moment?

On the opposite side of the previous paragraph, some people come in requiring a few silent moments to enjoy a relaxing haircut. For those clients, we completely respect that and encourage you to enjoy your haircut in whichever way suits you best. If you’ve had a long day at work or getting a haircut for a stressful event and need a few moments to rest your head back, a barber’s chair is a great way to accomplish that!

No matter how you like to enjoy your trip to the barbers, House of Handsome truly believes that this is the best spot in South Edmonton to unwind and indulge in some self-care.
