It is time. That's right, folks. We've got our first KING of the week!!! This brother posted a few pics and my mouth dropped. I mean, the line was so sharp it had me wanting to know what type of clippers/razor the barber used. I don't know about you, but there is not much that compares to a clean brother fresh from the shop. The shape up was oh so tight.
We tapped this King and he obliged. Yes! Let's get to know him.
Quick Tip: Turn All Tressed Up blue by clicking on the arrow to the right of the main menu (at the top) and click on blue.
Who is your barber?
William Shanks, but we just call him Shanks. With a name like that I knew he could cut something.
Note: Shanks is located in the D.C. area. We were unable to reach him, so hit us up Shanks if you're reading this. We'd love to blast your contact info.
What are your three favorite products? Why?
Lotion, first and foremost, I use Palmers Cocoa Butter because there's nothing worst than an ashy brother. As far as my smell goods, I wear Angel for Men. I hate that I am telling you cause know I'll to go buy all the available stock. No two men should ever smell alike (Man Law). Pink Oil Moisturizer, I tend to get dry scalp so I definitely make sure that I massage that in.
Please describe your routine (i.e., haircut frequency, shape-ups, etc.)
I see my barber at least 4 times a month, so that's actually every week. The weather and amount of growth between visits determine what I get in the chair for. My routine, I usually start with a haircut, then that next week I when I go back, I get a shape-up. By the time the that next week comes back around, it's time for a haircut. My last visit of the month I get a shape-up. Now that's a lot ,but it assures two things: 1.) My barber is always happy to see me and 2.) I don't have too many days where my head and face are looking busted. I'm actually typing this in the barbershop now.
What is your favorite quote of the moment?
"If 'Shh, honey, don't scream' isn't working when your little monster is pitching an epic fit in the middle of Target, I will be happy to show you some moves from my mother's discipline handbook. Chapter One: "Spanking: Its Not Child Abuse If They Are Screaming."
How does it feel to be selected as the All Tressed Up King of the Week?
I was actually surprised when I found out. I've been very blessed and fortunate in my lifetime. I also have the esteem honor and privilege of the being the first All Tressed Up King of the Week, and you know what they say, you never forget your first.
Is there anything you would like to promote or share with the world?
The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
