And, as promised, they did…
Last weekend we decided to head out and attempt to kill two birds with one stone. Kevin had been in desperate need of a haircut & Max was looking a little shaggy. We had been unhappy with the kids places we’d found to cut Max’s hair, so we decided to let him tag along with Dad.
I’ve got to tell you, Max has gotten the best hair cuts when he’s gone to barbers, as opposed to the salons geared towards kids. If your kids can sit still with a lollipop, I suggest you try it! But, back to Rudy’s…
I fully anticipated to enter in to one of those ‘we’re cooler than you’ hipster joints (after all, the founders of Rudy’s also founded the Ace Hotel. Watch this cool video to see their story about how Rudy’s and the Ace Hotel came to be). We had the friendliest hair stylists. Everyone was incredibly kind to Max. And, Kevin was chatting it up with his stylist (who let me take a photo of his ‘I Will Cut You’ shirt above). I always love a company with creative & edgy branding, that manages to create a sense of community within their concept. They make you feel like going there is a part of a lifestyle.
Now, I wouldn’t go there for my hair, but I loved the place! I loved the vibe, the understated decor, and the people there. Most of all, I loved that we could hop on the bus as a family, stroll around the hood, and experience Max & Kevin being dudes together.
It was precious!
