Knowing how to describe what you want from the barber will help help you achieve Maximum Dapperness and Make you look your best!

They’re a traditional barbershop with a bit of “modernism”, focusing on precision men’s haircuts and shaves that’s what makes Classic Cuts and Shaves so great. While visiting, enjoy free Wi-Fi, plenty of men’s magazines, a cup of coffee or a soda and be sure not to leave without picking up some grooming products made just for men.

With three other professionally trained barbers, they can provide you with professional, top notch male grooming services. Whether you desire to be a part of a traditional rite of passage and patronize a men’s barbershop, or prefer to have a full menu of salon services available to you all in one place, we all should be a part of the style conversation rather than reciting the number of a clipper comb. Allow your stylist or barber to bring a personal touch to our next haircut. So let me bring you back to hair basics with some terminology (see below) to use when visiting a barbershop (or even salon stylist). Knowing how to describe what you want will help help you avoid any haircut mishaps.

  • Buzz – The length of hair is clippered down to be equal all the way around.
  • Caesar – This style is to be worn with short sides and nape, textured on top, with the movement of the hair and bangs going forward.
  • Cowlick – Where the hair pattern grows in a swirl and typically found at the crown or hairline.
  • Crew – A style where the sides and nape are cut very short and the crown is slightly longer, following the shape of the head.
  • Crown – This is the top of your head where many cowlicks tend to reside.
  • Design – Images are carved typically into a faded cut and are simple to intricate.
  • Fade – An extreme version of a taper cut working with very short lengths.
  • Flat Top – Just like it sounds, literally the top is buzzed straight across leveling out the crown.
  • High & Tight – Your typical military cut with a sort of landing strip going down your crown.
  • Layering – A technique used to create dimension in the hair and if not layered, you can end up with a bowl haircut.
  • Nape – This is at the base of your neck hairline and can be either tapered to gradually fade out to your natural hairline, or blocked off to have a square or shaped appearance.
  • Part – A line that runs through your scalp and is often found in more conservative haircuts.
  • Pompadour – The sides and nape are short, while the top is left long then styled forward and brushed back.
  • Razor Cut – A straight edge that is used to cut the hair in a choppy, less uniform fashion.
  • Receding Hair Line – Where the hairline has moved back further due to thinning or hair loss.
  • Steps – Lines are cut into the temples of a faded cut creating a design of steps.
  • Taper – Graduating hair-length where it is shorter at the temples and nape and longer at the crown.
  • Texturizing – Creating dimension and thinning through sections of the hair.
  • Thinning – A technique using special thinning shears that takes bulk out of thick hair.

New photo albums from Pinnacle & More available from B & J Gallery!

New photo albums from Pinnacle available from B & J Gallery! This is a great addition to some of the fantastic frames available at the shop. Dennis Mathewson is truly one of the pioneers of Kustom painting and airbrushing. As a naturally artistic kid, back in the 70′s he started out with his first airbrush and after a few years he went to work airbrushing shirts at the Rat’s Hole for the late Karl Smith, founder of the famous Rat’s Hole Chopper Show in Daytona Beach Florida. After leaving the “Rat Pack” Dennis opened up his own shop and continued airbrushing as well as becoming very adept with the spraygun and applying kustom finishes including goldleaf application, pinstriping and brush lettering.

Fast forward to his latest project of framing and it’s no surprise that B&J Gallery (who’s always ahead of the curve in Bowling Green on framing) would have some of his newest work in store:

 

Patriotic.

Great for a twisted look.

For the music lover.

A Great Classical Look.

Put more art and love in the lives of your family and friends with a gift from B&J Gallery. Hurry into their store on 107 Nellums Ave. off Fairview Avenue. They are also online at www.bandjgallery.com and on facebook.

Destiny Dental and Back-to-School Dental Check-Ups. Time is Ticking!

By Admin, BuyLocalBG.com, BuyLocalBg@gmail.com/
Monday, July 28th, 2014 8:00 AM CST

After the slow, lazy days of Summer vacation, it is back to school time. For me back to school was always a favorite time of the year for me. I loved the smell of brand new books and that crack sound they made, the excitement of new classes before the work got too hard or I was pressured by exams and paper deadlines, and soon we will feel that touch of Fall in the air. Along with the start of the school year will be those appointments for dental vision exams for your children and teens. This may also be a good time to check out your family’s health and dental plans.

Dental Checkups are increasingly becoming mandatory in many states and should become an important part of back-to-school preparations. Tooth decay is one of the most common diseases in children and can interfere with learning and lead to more serious complications. A child who is in pain from tooth decay will have trouble focusing in school. Especially with young children, find a good pediatric dentist or a general dentist who is known for his ability to work with children. This will help encourage life long good dental habits.   In addition to treating tooth decay, the back-to-school dental visit can focus on dental hygiene and prevention.

The parents and school must also play a role in good dental health by making sure that healthy and nutritious drinks and snacks are available both at home and at school. According to Dr. Cindy Harms, consumer advisor for the American Dental Association, “When teeth come in frequent contact with sweetened soft drinks and other sugar-containing substances, the risk of tooth decay…is increased as is the potential for erosion of tooth enamel.”

Back-to-school season may also be a good time to check out your family health and dental plans. Hopefully your child will not need anything beyond a dental exam and cleaning. However, if tooth decay is found or orthodontic treatment is necessary, you will want a good dental plan to reduce your costs. A good dental plan will offer substantial discounts on all dental services with no limits on age, visits, or treatment costs. Coverage should be provided for orthodontia and cosmetic dentistry. After all, an attractive smile is very important to your child’s confidence and orthodontic treatment can prevent more serious conditions caused by misalignment of the teeth. All ongoing conditions should be covered by the plan.   Many dental plans also offer discounts on vision care with significant discounts on eye exams and eyewear.

Call Destiny Dental for more questions about CareCredit or to see if you a can schedule an appointment. They are located at 1720 Destiny Lane and can be reached by phone at 842-3554. Don’t forget to fan them on facebook.
