How to Shave with Danny Kerr of SPIFF for Men

Learn about Danny Kerr, one of Howcast's shaving experts, in this Howcast video.


Hi, my name is Danny Kerr. I'm the founding partner of SPIFF For Men. We have a salon here in New York on 46th and Third Avenue. A lot people ask me how I got into this business. I actually thought I was going to become a psychologist. I quit school my senior year, went to Hawaii, bummed around on the beaches for four years, and then me and my girlfriend moved to LA, and at that time she was going to beauty school. I decided to give it a try.

I found my calling. I enjoyed learning how to cut hair. When I first got out of school I went into a women's salon. Didn't like that. I thought what fitted me more was being in an all-male atmosphere. I enjoy talking to guys. My clients are my friends. I enjoy talking about sports. I enjoy seeing these guys. This is not a job for me. It's fun and that's why I've been able to do it for 30 years.

Here at SPIFF we do everything from haircuts, manicures, shaves, pedicures, waxing services, facials, complete men's services. We're an all-male salon. You'll get definitely a great haircut. You'll get the service. It's all about the experience here at Spiff. That's what we pride ourselves on. It's the quality, convenience, and consistency of the work that we do. All my stylists are trained.

We actually train them before they hit the floor. Some of the people there that work with me have 15-20 years of experience cutting hair. We offer complementary drinks here. You can get anything from a cappuccino to a beer, to Scotch. We always hold private event parties for our clients.

It's all about the clientele here at Spiff. It's not about us. We're not the stars. The clients are the stars here at SPIFF. If you want to know more about what we do here at SPIFF, definitely visit us. We're on 46th and Third, or you can go to our website and look at our services and the photo gallery and I'm sure you'll enjoy your visit here.
