Cut it, snip it, fade it, pomp it, gel it, shave it, beard-upgrade it. No, it's not the making of a chart-topping jam by Daft Punk; it's your frigging hair, man. And it's kind of a big deal, or at least it should be.

Nowadays it seems like guys pride themselves more on the shape of their manes than their motors. In other words, the topic of hair maintenance has become a touchy subject for the fellas. Should something go awry under the care of a renegade hairstylist waving a suspicious pair of sheers within a mile radius of your gelled-up locks, by gawd, there'll be hell to pay. And since the Mad Men and Jay Gatsby explosion of slick side parts and fade-style cuts surged onto the scene, things have only escalated. These days men simply expect more from their stylists.

But where can they go to turn their great expectations into reality? Going to a regular hair salon, one that caters mainly to women, would mean running the risk of looking metro, demanding, or worse, high-maintenance. Men crave a safe haven, a place to call home among other equally picky members of the male tribe, somewhere they can sip a well-deserved colada or Scotch and enjoy the best hot shave of their damn lives. But does such a place exist?

They sure do. In Miami, barbershops are striking back hard. And they're not just looking to aid you with top-of-the-line, VIP services teamed up with a killer cut. They want to give a 360-degree experience of kicking up your feet and watching the game, all while transforming you from "Meh, he's aight," to "Dayyyyummmm -- hold up, lady-killer."

Here are the top five barbershops in Miami (in no particular order):

Churchill's Barber Shop
Ask any guy rockin' a trendy do, hanging out around downtown and its surrounding areas, where he got his hair did. They'll all say the same thing: "Churchill's." No, not the pub, the barbershop! Unlike its grungier named twin in Little Haiti, Churchill's Barber Shop makes clients feel like a million bucks. Upon your first step in, you're warped back in time to sweeter days, when Bogart, not Gosling, commanded the screen, thanks to its rich, wood paneling and full bar.

Yes, you read that right. They have a full bar. Yeah.

Aside from its sterling customer service and clean shaves and cuts, perhaps the best part of this blast-from-the-past barbershop is the ultra blast-from-the-past shoe-shine service. Who the hell sees one of those anymore? As if giving your old soles a face-lift (or maybe just some Botox) wasn't enough, the prices for quality are insanely low. Men's haircuts start at $25 smackers and hot shaves at only $30. If you're having a particularly exceptional day, why not get both at the same time for only $49?

You can tell this was done by some intern. How can the "Best of Miami" issue say Vice City Barbershop and then not even include it on this list.

Redbird has great barbers, mostly older barbers from Cuba, a haircut is $14 including a straight edge razor to clean up the neck, and while it also has women's styling in the back, the front is a true barbershop.
