There's a huge gap between what men and women want when they get their hair cut. For most men, the option not to talk is key. Paul Gray's Barber Lounge, a narrow three-seater on the only unsleepy street in sleepy Madrona, accepts those who are unwilling to be chatty. But it also has a way of bringing out the blarney in everyone, thanks to its familial feel. Paul's wife runs the antique thrift shop next door. So the Barber Lounge comes by its man-cave, just-shootin'-the-shit-with-the-fellas vibe honestly; what could be more manly than waiting for the moment when your bawdy, ESPN-centric conversation gets interrupted by the missus? Plus, with clipper cuts starting at a reasonable $18, if you're likely to talk about anything, it won't be about how you got ripped off.
