The Night Barber Classic Haircut
Your signature haircut created to best reflect your personality and lifestyle. I begin with a consultation and careful preparation of the cutting guides that result in a perfect haircut by following the natural contours of the head. Combining state-of-the-art motorized clippers with traditional Japanese steel scissors, bulk is removed and the hair is precisely cut and blended to achieve the desired result. I use a hygienic and non-irritating foil shaver to ensure the nape is shaved with a long-lasting baby smooth finish. The hair is saturated with a luxuriously rich grooming tonic then dried and styled. I finish by applying your choice of Reuzel™ hair pomades for either a matte or lightly shiny finish and strength of hold.
By selecting the "Deluxe" option, your classic haircut will also include a luxurious massaging shampoo and conditioning treatment leaving your hair and scalp clean and revitalized.*
The Night Barber Classic Beard Trim
While I no longer wear the full, long beard I once did, I remain a traditional beardsman at heart and treat every beard—long or short, stubbly or stocky—with the utmost care. Your beard is a reflection of your independent spirit, style and masculinity and conveys that to the world. I begin every beard service with a thorough inspection of the beard, mustache and skin. Next, I carefully remove bulk and begin shaping the facial hair to its desired length and design. I create natural lines along the base of the throat, neck and cheeks using both a highly efficient foil shaver and traditional cutthroat razor to achieve the perfect contours while leaving these areas smooth and stubble free. Your beard trim is topped off with a splash of Reuzel™after shave and their rich, great-smelling beard balm.
By selecting the "Deluxe Beard Maintenance" option, you will thoroughly enjoy a luxurious hot steam, lemon and eucalyptus treatment to fully cleanse, stimulate and tonify your beard and skin. A cold towel will be employed at the end of the facial to close the pores and awaken your senses.*

Born and raised in Chicago, I moved to Los Angeles shortly after graduating from high school in 1981 with the single objective of becoming a rock star. There, I began working for my cousin, famed Beverly Hills hairstylist Allen Edwards (Julianne Moore, Renee Zellweger, Laura Flynn Boyle, Donna Mills, Raquel Welch). While mostly relegated to making coffee, serving wine and sweeping, I got a good taste of the business and enjoyed learning the trade from seasoned professionals.
Fast forward to 2017 when, at the age 54, while beginning my twenty-fifth year as a teacher, I started a small company, Usatinsky Bow Ties, and began designing and selling handmade bow ties. (see my bow ties HERE).
Soon after, I approached Sam Aydani, master barber and owner of the upscale Benoah Barbershop in The Hague, and asked him if I could sell my bow ties in his beautiful shop. Sam agreed and when I told him about my experience working in a hair salon some 35 years earlier, he said if I ever wanted to get back into the business, he'd be more than happy to train me. Half in jest I said "so when do I start?" Same smiled and (half in jest) said, "come next Tuesday at ten o'clock." So, I did.
Over the next five and a half months, I gave 100 haircuts and 100 shaves while still working part-time as a Lecturer of English at the renowned Hotelschool The Hague. To facilitate my training, I offered free haircuts and shaves to my Hotelschool students who were both curious and pleasantly delighted to be getting a haircut and shave by their teacher "Mr. Morris."
It was in the spring of 2018, nearing the end of my apprenticeship, when my students—during what is the busiest time of the academic year—would ask for later evening appointments to accommodate their busy schedules. Before long, I was taking appointments as late as ten or eleven o'clock at night when the idea of an after-hours barbershop hit me. Seeing a niche for this type of business, The Night Barber was born and I became the first and only barber in Holland offering late-night, after-hours barber services to discerning gentlemen.
Today, The Night Barber is part of the WI Kappers Collective in Amsterdam (Oud West) and The Hague (Zeeheldenkwartier), providing the ultimate gentleman’s barbering experience featuring classic haircuts and meticulous beard maintenance at convenient evening hours.
