I CAN GUARANTEE THE CLOSEST SHAVE YOU'LL EVER KNOW.

What may I do for you today, sir? A stylish trimming of the hair? A soothing skin massage? Sit, sir, sit. 

So fetch the pomade and pumice stone and lend me a more seductive tone, a sprinkling perhaps of French cologne, but first, sir, I think... a shave. 

The closest I ever gave! 
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Moving swiftly on.... we bought our barbers chair from a retired eccentric opera singer, what a interesting lady.


 
What a nasty job cleaning it up was. In the middle pic above is bits of hair *vomit* that had molded to the shape of the foot plate.



Would you believe this baby is over a 100 years old?? Doesn't polish up too badly hey?!
