A young Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) student comes into Royal Razor Barbershop a bit rough around the edges and leaves rather dapper after his haircut with our barber, Joe.

Royal Razor Barbershop, in Baltimore, MD, offers grooming services for men such as fades, scissor cuts, and hot towel shaves.  The barbershop specializes in cutting all hair types to include African American (black), Hispanic (Latino), straight, and curly hair.

As previously mentioned in another blog post, we will be writing about all things about style and pop culture to add “meat” to our barbershop/”style” website.

I thought it would be a fun idea to pay respect to some uniquely cool things from the past in a series called “FLASHBACK”.  Here’s our fist submission from QUEEN.

Another One Bites the Dust” is a song by the English rock band Queen. Written by bass guitarist John Deacon, the song featured on the group’s eighth studio album The Game (1980). The song was a worldwide hit, charting number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, number two on the R&B charts and the Disco Top 100, and number seven in the UK Singles Chart.[2][3] The song is credited as Queen’s best selling single, with sales of over 7 million copies.

What made this song so uniquely different from their other songs is that the big success of this song came when American, “black” radio stations started playing it on air.  It became a cross over smash.

Here’s a little known fact.  After attending a Queen concert in Los Angeles, Michael Jackson suggested to Freddie Mercury backstage that “Another One Bites the Dust” be released as a single…YUP.  King of Pop strikes again!

Happy Monday Baltimore!!!!!

As another week at our barbershop kicks off, Joe gives this gentleman a much needed haircut.  This guy just cut off his braids and wants a Mohawk.

Joe hooks him up with a righteous cut and sends him out the door smiling.

An element of the Royal Razor Barbershop website is style commentary because hair and fashion go hand in hand.  From time to time Royal Razor will be featuring clothes, music, and all things style related.

Our first style post is featuring Reebok’s “Time To Show Zip Boot”

Part of their Classics collection, nothing says look this way quite like this hightop. The classic mid-cut construction and rubber outsole are taken to a whole new level with fun additions like the side zipper and eye-catching gold lace eyelet and fabric details.

I absolutely think these are so sweet!

As some of the last touches are happening for the barber shop, Royal Razor has finalized the window signage for the shop front.  And as modest as I am…not really, I must say this is the coolest barbershop window graphic I have ever seen.  As of right now, my design is pending review with the landlord and property manager.

I would like to personally thank my designer, Tommy, for really giving Royal Razor such a strong graphic, branding image.  Without him, it wouldn’t look sooooo cool.

The photo above is what the shop front will look like.
