Brad MacDonald and Dylan MacEachern are the well-coiffed heads behind Halifax’s newest barbershop, Scallywags Barbershop (6513 Chebucto Road). After meeting and working together at Sailor Bup’s (5281 Sackville Street), the pair left to open up their own shop.

“We just do haircuts, shaves and beard stuff—we’re not trying to be niche-y about it. People are free to come shoot the shit and hang out,” says MacEachern. (FYI: “Beard stuff” means a trim or a tidy.)
