Gold Winner Phat's Barber Shop
Silver Winner Sailor Bup's Barbershop, downtown
Bronze Winner Oddfellows BarbershopOn Saturday mornings, the lineup at Phat’s Barber Shop often spills out the door. Amid the rise in beard-butter-bro-barbers, Phat’s has managed to keep things simple. Each evening the place gets swept, sometimes a day’s work catches the wind and floats its way down Windsor Street. A hand-written note in orange marker in the window announces a vacation and people turn on their heels, but not before making a note of when Phat says he’ll be back. Often, a lamp by the mirror is left on overnight, allowing neighbours to peer in and see that sometimes, the day’s last task was left for tomorrow.
