In the barber’s care

He’ll take care of you. Promise.

Drew Danburry, musician-turned-barber, opened Danburry Barber in downtown Provo in April with the guarantee that he, unlike other barbershops and hair salons, will focus all of his attention on the subject in his chair.

“Especially for my shop, I want it to be a very quiet and personal experience,” Danburry said. “It’s just me and the person getting their haircut. For someone who is waiting to get their haircut, they know they’re not at the top of my list, but when they get in my chair, they’ll have all my attention. I take the time to get every haircut just right.”

Classically trained as at The Barber School in Midvale, Danburry specializes in men’s hair and hot towel shaves. In the past, it was common for men to visit a barber every day for a shave, and he taps into that a little bit with his traditional tools and masculine leather chair.

When he started at The Barber School, Danburry was surprised by the diversity there.

“The diversity there was strange for Utah,” he said. “People talk about barbering making a comeback, but I think that’s just for the white demographic. Barbering’s been around and solid for the black and Hispanic communities. A lot of [the students there] had been barbering in backyards for a long time, learning by doing. I learned a lot from those students.”

His taste in haircuts reflects that diversity. He loves a well-blended style, particularly “a one on top with a zero fade.”

In other words: a classic men’s haircut.

But he goes further. When he’s finished with the shears he brings out the shaving cream and straight razor to get a super close shave around the neckline and ears. After that he gives you a scalp massage.

Told you this guy takes care of you.
