This afternoon I had the very pleasant experience of visiting Karizma, the newest Turkish barbers in town.
From the moment I walked in I was made to feel very welcome by the Karizma lads. It was a big change from some of the other establishments that I had visited before to get an authentic Turkish shave.
The setting was perfect. As I waited for my turn, I was being serenaded by the dulcet sounds of one of Cork’s best known buskers, who bases herself right across from Karizma. There is definitely no need for a sound system in this place with such heart-warming melodies breezing in the door.
For anybody who has never been under the blade of a Turkish barber, I strongly recommend that you pay them a visit. The feel of the hot fragranced towels on the face is a great sensation. And the facial massage you receive afterwards beats all. I must say that my face felt as clean as a whistle after my shave
I would definitely recommend that potential grooms pay this place a visit on the morning of their wedding. I could think of no better way to get suitably groomed and relaxed in perparation for the big day.
