Best Bay Area Grooming Treatments for Men (7x7 Magazine)


Ditch your Mach3 and head to J.P. Kempt, where one soothing swipe of a sharp blade will make you appreciate the luxury of a straight-razor shave. Stylish white-smocked barbers will deftly transform your rugged mug into baby-bottom smoothness. We especially dig the soulful retro setting, which hums with good music and playful banter.

J.P. Kempt Named Best Barbershop of San Francisco

Shorty Maniace is as close to a celebrity barber as you can get—dubbed one of the best by Esquire, called the “rock and roll” barber by VH1, and featured in GQ—but his lower Haight shop is all neighborhood. Smocked barbers stand in front of old-school chairs and oak vanities as they give hot-lather beard trims ($25), straight razor shaves ($45), and haircuts ($45). The staff are happy to take direction, and even happier to hand you a beer or a whiskey when you walk in the door.
