THE NEW YORK SHAVING COMPANY.

A gentleman's tonsorial parlor.

Expert in classic high-end grooming since nearly 15 years. The shop aims to teach good habits,offering a free facial analysis and using all-natural products. The salon has three locations: 202B Elizabeth street, New York; 146 East 49th Street, New York and 17 Bannard Street, Freehold, New Jersey.

A legion of distinguished fans from Prime Ministers to Presidents, from entertainers to award-winning actors.

For years, The New York Shaving Company has provided discerning gentleman with the finest in shaving products and services. Our ideology harks back to the days when dapper gentleman sought out a close, clean shave in an inviting and masculine atmosphere, the latter of which we’ve thoughtfully recreated.Antique chairs, barbers in crisp white coats, steamed towels, nostalgic music, and our own proprietary line of high-quality products add to the ambience that elevates The New York Shaving Company experience to a class all its own.

The passion behind the company.

John Scala founded The New York Shaving Company with a singular passion: to reintroduce the old-fashioned way of shaving and provide men with a superior shave using only the finest ingredients. To achieve this dream, John sacrificed everything—including his wife’s engagement ring (with her permission, of course)—to create the idyllic male sanctuary that combines the refinement of eras past with the fulfillment of present-day expectations.

Through the decades the modern man has suffered the loss of the quintessential neighborhood shaving parlor and its characteristic camaraderie, but The New York Shaving Company successfully reclaims it.

We invite you to reminisce about this rite of passage you share with your father
and your grandfather.

John Scala the Founder.

" We want man to enjoy the ultimate grooming experience - he uses to say - and to come away with a new appreciation for what a daily shave can be. We transform a routine chore into a valuable masculine assetwhich every successful man deserves".

Classic Portrait.

My photography session with actor Sean Scott McCraken was a pleasure. An easy guy to work with.

This guy is polite, generous and decent to a fault. In other words, a good man.

The Rebellion Look

TEENAGE REBELLION.

As part of their development into young adults, humans must develop an Identity independent from their parents or family and a capacity for independent decision making. They may experiment with different roles, behaviours, and ideologies as part of their process of developing an identity. Teenage rebellion has been recognized within psychology as a set of behavioural traits that supersede class, culture, or race.

NATURE.

There remains some debate as to whether the causes of teenage rebellion are completely natural or necessary. Some posit that an adolescent's failure to achieve a sense of identity can result in role confusion and an inability to choose a vocation, and these pressures may develop from being viewed as adults. Indeed, in the Western world the age at which one is considered an adult (in both the cultural and legal sense) has advanced from the early teens in earlier centuries to the late teens and even early twenties in today's society.

Bravery.

I admire bravery, the bravery to make daring decisions, the bravery to be exposed and vulnerable.

When looking at Sean's gallery in my TitoFinePortraits site one get's the idea of some one who is looking for some thing. Perhaps he is a psy out in the middle of nowhere.
