When Evanston’s Art + Science owners Paul Wilson and David Raccuglia decided to move their salon from Church Street to a more open space on Orrington Avenue, they carved out a men’s barbershop, complete with retro barber’s chairs and neon signs. As founders of American Crew, a global professional brand dedicated to men’s styling and grooming products, they know the importance of image and performance. “The barbering world is coming back to life,” says Wilson. “It’s really reached a critical tipping point for us.” The barbershop offers men’s hairstyling ($45) and products, and also shaves ($45) and beard trimming ($18). Adds Wilson, “The craft of barbering was almost a lost art.” 1629 Orrington Ave., 847.864.4247, artandsciencesalon.com Make your own artisanal cocktails with Williams-Sonoma Bellini mixes.
