The Shop...

 

University City Barber Shop is a family owned and operated shop that has been providing quality haircuts since 1961. We welcome men of all ages, ethnicities and hairstyles. We have a highly skilled staff that will help you feel welcome in the shop and comfortable with your new hairstyle. Your hairstyle is one of the first things that people notice when they meet you. Let the barbers at University City Barber Shop give you a haircut that will make that first impression a positive one!

 

The Difference...

 

University City Barber Shop is unique in the fact that we have the ability to cut the hair of a very diverse clientele. Many other shops are very specialized and are only able to cut specific hairstyles. The barbers at our shop are able to span all ethnicities and ages and we welcome all men regardless of hairstyle. We provide quality haircuts, are reliable, sociable and highly skilled. All of these things come together to help us deliver the best possible experience in our field.

 

My Philosophy...

 

Cutting hair is something that has been in my family for four generations. It was always something my family members really enjoyed doing and something that they were proud to do. I first went into sales and soon found that it wasn't the profession for me. I enjoyed talking and interacting with many different types of people, but didn't feel like I was making enough of an impact in people's lives. It was then that I decided to get into the family business of cutting hair and began working for my uncle at University City Barber Shop. I worked with him for three years until I had the opportunity to purchase the shop once he moved on. Getting into the hair cutting business has allowed me to combine two of my passions: interacting with people, and making them look and feel better when they leave.

 

Hair is one of the first things you notice about someone. As barbers, we can help people look and feel better when they are out in the world, or at least in their own slice of the world. Not only have we had an impact on our regular customers, we have also worked with and helped the community through donations and fundraisers. University City Barber Shop has donated haircuts to numerous fundraisers for the unemployed, cancer benefits and many other fundraisers as well. We have also worked with the United Way of DeKalb County to raise money for their various benefactors.

 

To me, one of the most important duties of a business is to be dependable in every facet of its trade. I pride myself on having a work ethic that is built upon hard work, reliability, and dedication. I work with a reliable and highly skilled staff of barbers that I can count on to help the shop run efficiently. The staff is always there when they are needed and provide high quality haircuts even when no one is looking over their shoulders. I wouldn't be able to run the barber shop the way I do without their help.
