The Mohawk


+ 10 yrs of having long hair

+ 120 yr old Argentine barbershop

= Life Goal #143...The Mohawk

La Epoca
Barberia "La Epoca"

The Chair

Goodbye Long Hair

The Aftermath

Tucked away on a side street in Caballito, La Epoca is an amazing little piece of Argentine History. Part barbershop, part museum, part coffee shop Miguel the owner is all smiles to everyone who stops in...even if you don't happen to need a mohawk. Peluquería y Barbería "La Epoca" is located at Guayaquil 877. Tel: 4903 7799

A special thanks to my friend Hobozero for helping me find this place, and to Annie for taking awesome pics and helping the barber understand what a mohawk was.
