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.)

If you’re in the market for a straight shave or a quick trim, don’t forget to bring along your favourite vinyl—their vintage Clairtone, made in their hometown of Stellarton, Nova Scotia, is open to anyone to spin their records on. Just try not to nod your head along too much while getting a cut—like, I'm pretty sure Van Gogh lost his ear bopping along to some Led Zep deep cuts at his barber...
