Boer goats are a popular breed for meat . The breed is carefully breed  with the local goats to achieve higher yielding meat . There is a growing need for goats in the country , in which local backyard growers cannot supply the market . That is “why” the price of goat meat is still relatively expensive .

Sports Barbers : A Stylish Destination to Groom

There is a stylish urban destination for those who are always busy and on the go there is a new barbershop destination in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

Sports Barbers is not your typical barbershop but it is a place to deliver the best cuts for clients, inspired by traditional hairstyles and the most stylish men. The brand’s crop of barber-stylists, a term derived from the fusion of Vidal Sassoon trained cutting and styling mixed with the efficient sensibilities of old-school barbers, mean clients can confidently step into any branch and emerge looking as dapper as they can be. This is also a perfect place to hang-out with your co-office employees .

This gave way to a new breed of barbershops—one that delivers the kind of service that they expect that essentially gives a modern take on an old classic. And while there have been a few cropping up here and there, none have been more accessible or as successful in providing the stylish sense that today’s grooming generation seeks than Sports Barbers.

Teenage boys , men , sports enthusiasts and office employee can perfectly trimmed beards and facial hair making an appearance…it’s safe to say that male grooming is finally getting the attention it deserves.

Unlike the more traditional barbershop , this is more secluded and have a more personalized service.

Most women like being whisked away to a secluded world of pampering for their beauty treatments; most men will expect an efficient and clear-cut service—but not at the expense of style,” explained Mr. Ramon De Ubago III, CEO of Sports Barbers.

Ambiance and Service Oriented 

Its ambiance and service, strongly anchored on its team’s ability to provide everything from on-trend cuts to classic styles, is a compelling reminder of inherent masculine values—adventure, straightforwardness, humor and at the end of the day, natural good looks (as opposed to self-conscious preening).

“The idea is to create a go-to destination for men where they can expect the reliable, time-honored techniques of traditional barbering and yet know they are in the hand of people who will be able to tell the difference between a short sides with brush top versus buzz crop or a pompadour versus a slick back,” ends De Ubago.

Branches in Metro Manila and Provinces

With 12 branches nationwide, it recently unveiled another milestone as it opened its 12th branch in SM North Edsa last December 2016. This place recreates the traditional concept of your go-to neighborhood barbershop and offers a destination.

Try to Visit Sports Barbers Barbershop at UP Town Center, SM Clark, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM Mall of Asia, SM Bacoor, SM Bicutan, SM Southmall, SM Cebu, SM Bacolod, Eastwood Citywalk, SM San Pablo, SM San Lazaro and SM North Edsa.
