F.S.C. Barber Shop Now Chopping Off Beards in S.F.

Posted By on Thu, May 12, 2011 at 4:43 PM


Take a look inside this amazingly beautiful barber shop at 696 Valencia St. in the Mission with Leo Plass and see what cofounder Sam Buffa has to say about it.

F.S.C. Barber began in Manhattan and is what we'd call the anti-Supercuts. It emphasizes expert levels of personal care and grooming that have become rare for men, many of whose standards of appearance resemble "never owned a razor," "perpetually trapped in the wilderness," or "junior high school reject."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
