Masterful Hair Advice

It’s not every day you can get hair advice from a master long hair barber, but on this episode of The Longhairs podcast El Sicario sits down with his friend and personal long hair barber, Shelbee Shearz.

The owner and proprietor of The Lion’s Mane Grooming Co. in San Diego, Shelbee is a master barber and educator specializing in men’s long hair.

  1. I’ll definitely get a good trim upon my visit to the long hairs HQ next year!

  2. the link to the barber’s salon is inoperative; the good link:
    to El Rubio: as she is located at New Italy, you could also buy some pizzas an chianti bottles…lol
    what we need from a longhair barber is first examples of growth from short hair to bobcut limiting the akward stage for she has too much seen aspiring longhair relapsing at that point to the trimmer…

  3. My sentiments as well David, time and life experiences will always be unique to the individual. Great tie-in with flow as a philosophy bro!

  4. Definitely a blast to hear a pro barber’s take on the hair care line from The Longhairs. I was impressed on the creative usage with the Hydro Flow at her shop!

  7. Been awesome watching all the videos and creating content for The Mane Cave and now Let It Ride!

    I am desperate for a trim from our official long hair barber! Shelbee save meeee!

  8. Shelbee got my mullet looking right! Definitely counting down the days until my next trim.

  9. Think it’s safe to say Shelbee is our new official long hair barber for The Longhairs!

  10. To have the products cosigned by a MASTER barber is a major win. Thanks Shelbee!!

  11. salutations Mejia. You said that you can’t expect a kid to just get over it. The truth, no authentic person any age should be expected to get over whatever it is that they’re experiencing. Flow is a philosophy and part of that philosophy is that we are best when we are our real selves, our authentic self. Un-people, they “live” unlives or lives that are out of touch with their experience, their emotions, I guess they got over it, and by over it we mean inauthenticity, spiritual death.
