Polished & Proper

Barbershop & Shave Parlor

Travel back to a time when a visit to the barbershop was a chance to relax, socialize and be pampered the old fashion way. Come and take that journey when you enter our shop. 

Polished & Proper Barbershop & Shave Parlor offers an old fashion barbershop atmosphere including antique barber chairs, gorgeous wood floor, beautifully carved barber stations, as well as old style theatre seats to wait in. Your experience will begin when you pass the large front display window, showing several antique straight razors, shave mugs, strops, and photos of well groomed gentlemen from the turn of the century. When you walk in you will be happily greeted by one of our pleasant, well dressed barbers. If there is a wait, you are welcome to sit in one of our front row theatre chairs with a daily paper. Please remember, use of cell phones is prohibited to preserve the atmosphere.

As you look around, you may notice the enchanting original tin ceiling as well as the restored 1940s cash register (still in use). When your time comes in the barber chair, your barber will introduce themselves with a smile and invite you to sit. You will have the choice of several services on the price list, as well the ability to ask for something which may not be found on it. The featured items on our menu are; Haircut, Hot Towel Facial Shave, Skin Fade, Beard Trim, Shampoo, and Facial Massage. If you come for a haircut, your barber will begin with a clean caping and thorough consultation (no numbers necessary). Our experienced barbers have been trained in the methods of the most highly respected Barbering institution in the region, New England School of Barbering (Penacook, NH). They have been trained in the art and science of precision haircutting, as well as straight razor shaves. "No hair is too long, no challenge too great..." 

Here at Polished & Proper, we strive to give you the most impressive barbershop experience in the Lakes Region, complete with every haircut finishing with a hot lather neck shave, hot towel, and our private stock Bay Rum aftershave.
