Winter is upon us, and natural masks have taken over many faces the last few months. While some just ain’t care and sport the rough, untamed look– others prepare to maintain their facial blanket. Chicago Beard Tamers are skilled with straight-razors to clean up the neck, scissors to chop the strays that are escaping like a thousand little tentacles, followed by a nice hot rag and aftershave to cool it all down. This experience, although may be terrifying to some that hold their manhood so dear, is actually insanely relaxing and refreshing. Contain your mane!

They may not be the traditional barbershop that you’d expect– really they are quite the opposite. However, there are multiple TVs and BYOB. Boom!
