Many have asked how I came up with the idea of V’s. The answer lies in my fond memories of going to the classic barber shops for a hair cut with my dad while growing up in Tucson. I keenly remember the sights and smells of Nick’s Barbershop and the real experience of being a boy among men. It was a place that we could go together and do more than get a hair cut. It was a place that made lasting memories. My son was born in 1994 and I went looking for a barber shop that would let me make memories with him. I did not find the local barber shop that I was looking for in Phoenix, or anywhere else, so I decided to open one. This proved to be a challenge, as I am not a Barber and knew nothing of the industry. In 1999, the first V’s Barbershop opened and we have given thousands of hair cuts to men and their sons since. We have grown V’s into a business that now has locations in multiple states and I thrilled that so many find a visit to V’s to be a relaxing pleasure rather than a chore. It is my goal to provide a first-class barber shop experience at a reasonable price. If we do our job right then you too will get more than a hair cut and a shave—the experience will be memorable. My dad died in 2003 and in his memory I sincerely hope that the barber shop experience at V’s is something that you and your son remember for a long time.
Standard Barber Shop Services A hair cut is just a hair cut, right? Wrong! At V’s Barbershop, a hair cut is ritual, a nostalgic experience harkening back to a simpler day when men gathered at the corner barbershop to discuss everything from business, to sports, to current events. V’s barbers provide both traditional, short hair cuts, as well as contemporary and trendy styles. Every hair cut will include a hot lather neck shave and will always end with a relaxing shoulder massage.
