CUT! Shaves and trims

Combatting hair with a classic straight razor, shaving cream and aftershave.

 

It's tuesday morning and it is already completely packed at Schorem's. With mustaches and beards, and especially not women. Because every man is entitled to a place where he can be man. This hair cutter and barber calls himself the only woman-free zone in Rotterdam (apart from men's rooms, that is).

You step back in time at Schorem's. The shop is filled with spencers, point mustaches, pomade and shaving brushes from the time of Al Capone. And occasionally with Jules Deelder.

For a man loses his cool under a pink plastic sheet at a hairdresser's, surrounded by chattering ladies with silver foil in their hair. Although the men favour Gilette Mach III and Braun's Body Cruiser at home, they occasionally keep up traditions. Craftsmanship is what you get!

At Schorem's you can also go for the classic straight razor, shaving cream and aftershave. They teach you, if desired how to 'combat' your hair with that razor, just to prevent you from turning into a real butcher. Today, you don't learn that from your dad anymore ...
