Here at Supernova Barber Shop we specialize in Hot Shaves and the care of Facial Hair, We started this shop noticing a need for a modern barber shop that offered old style shaves in a modern environment. Our goal is to satisfy our client giving him a close shave with hot lather while moisturizing the skin for that perfect experience.

Facial hair is a secondary sex characteristic in human males. Men often start developing facial hair in the later years of puberty or adolescence, approximately between 17-20 years of age, and most do not finish developing a fully adult beard until their early 20s or even later. This varies, as boys may first develop facial hair between 14-16 years of age, and boys as young as 11 have been known to develop facial hair. In addition, the patches of hair can vary between bushy and bristly.

Male pogonotrophy (the growing of facial hair; i.e., beardedness) is often culturally associated with wisdom and virility. Men may style their facial hair into beards, moustaches, goatees or sideburns; others completely shave their facial hair. The term "whiskers," used when referring to human facial hair indicates the hair on the chin and cheeks.
