The art of barbering is a long-standing Turkish tradition, dating back to the time of the Efes and Ottoman Empire. In Turkey being a barber is not just a profession, it defines who you are, as it is a skill that’s handed down from generation to generation. A master barber only passes on his title (and razor) to his apprentice after many years of training.
