Where in the world is M+G... Best Barber, New York
MALIN+GOETZ works with so many interesting and unique partners worldwide. We are excited to pull back the curtain a little and share some of their stories. This month we are highlighting Best Barber located right here in New York. The owner, Boswell, is a longtime supporter of ours, and didn’t hesitate to bring our brand into his very own barbershop. Read on to hear more about Boswell and his shop.
- Your hair philosophy or mantra is…
The solution to most of life's problems can be found by listening. This is true of hair too. Your hair will tell you everything you need to know about it if you just listen. If you don't know how to speak the language, a talented barber/stylist can translate for you.
- If you weren’t a barber, you would be…
I would be an interior designer. Since I was a child I have always had the impulse to redesign almost any space I enter. Efficiency being my most valued design attribute.
- Your all-time favorite restaurant in NYC…
El Almacén in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s a family owned and operated Argentinian joint. Get a table in the backyard or sit at the bar, order anything on the menu and be delighted.
- In a busy city like NY, you unwind by…
Taking day trips! One of may most often taken day trips is to Beacon, NY. It’s home to one of my favorite art museums, Dia:Beacon. There is also shopping and dining on Main Street, great hiking, and camping at Malouf’s Mountain. Fire Island isn't bad either.
- Who should get their hair cut at Best Barber (describe your customer)?
Literally anyone who wants a great barbered haircut. I have assembled a team, that collectively, can do anything!
- Whiskey or Wine?
Whiskey! Followed by a chaser of pickle brine, a/k/a Pickleback.
- Describe your ideal day off in the city.
Brunch at Nights and Weekends in Greenpoint, sunbathing in McCarren Park with a copy of New York Magazine, then a movie at NiteHawk Cinema.
- What’s the craziest/most regrettable hairstyle you’ve ever rocked?
As someone born and raised in Florida, I “rocked” a rattail for quite some time.
- What’s your sign?
Capricorn: responsible, patient, ambitious, resourceful, loyal and practically perfect in every way; like Mary Poppins.
- Ok, we have to ask, the M+G product you can’t live without is…
Rice Bran Eye Moisturizer! As a small business owner (and someone over the age of 25), an effective eye cream is absolute priority.
