Stay gold, Ponyboy.

The definition of treating yourself, St. Henri’s very own Notorious Barbershop gives Montrealers the chance to enjoy a $1,000 golden shave.

Dreamed up by Montreal businessman and Notorious Barbershop owner Corey Shapiro, the $1,000 shave is one of the most ostentatious and memorable barbershop experiences in the world, and certainly in Montreal.

What exactly goes down when you ask for the golden shave, you ask? Well it begins with gold-infused shaving cream. Next, a barber comes out with a 10-carat gold razor blade. The barber will then proceed to shave your face. After you’re nice and clean shaven, the barber will dull the blade, puncture it, and offer it to the customer as a necklace.

So far, 14 people have paid for this luxury experience in the two and a half years that the salon has been open.

One thing’s for sure, this $1,000 golden shave is the definition of #bling.
