Like blue jeans, cold beer, and Tiger Woods, a good cut ’n’ shave is simply an American mainstay. For those looking for a bit of the latter, we’d like to formally introduce to you one of 9th & 9th’s most prodigious staples, Curriculum.

As far as services are concerned, the acumen of the crew at this barbershop translates into precision and excellence in every service rendered. Not only are the cuts, trims, and shaves here all tight and top-notch, the entire experience feels composed and intentional. This spot prides itself on customer service and, consequently for its customers, a visit to Curriculum is as much an opportunity for some grade-A grooming as it is a welcome chance to most literally sit back and relax.

For our part, we’re particularly partial to their moody space--with its black brick exterior and dimly lit interior--for obvious reasons. And while, at 4,000 sq. ft., the space is quite big, the wise use of it makes one feel instantly at home. Instead of packing it full of barber chairs, the folks at Curriculum did quite the opposite; each station is spread far enough from its neighbor to make those inside them feel like they’re having their own, private experience (and being graciously greeted and served the drink of your choice to sip while seated doesn’t hurt, either). And aside from a shipshape shave or trim, Curriculum has a carefully selected array of products, goods, and gifts. From high-end grooming essentials, candles, and fragrances to barware, journals, and coffee accouterments, these tables and shelves are always a delight to peruse.

Grooming, gifts, and all the trimmings.
