Fall is here and the holidays are quickly approaching! There will be tons of parties, family get togethers and events with photo opportunities, so be sure to book ahead for your haircuts and beard services to keep your look polished! My books are filling up fast and I want to be sure you can reserve the appointment you want!Here's a fun Undercut Design I made for Kylie for Halloween. Alongside the traditional and every day haircuts, I love creating something festive for a party or special occasion. Be sure to let me know if you want to try out a design!See you soon!Veronica
Just wanted to make sure everyone knows that I've increased my service prices as of October 1st 2019. As always, I strive to create a great experience for each person in my chair and this will enable me to continue giving you the best service possible. I'm so grateful for each and every client that keeps my chair full and weeks busy, you are more than appreciated! Thank you for letting me be your barber!
Many of you have noticed that I have changed locations! I’m now taking all appointments at The Banyan Tree - 2311 S Street in Midtown. This new space is super chill and has free street parking! Booking appointments and taking payment will still be the same process through Square. I’ve worked with many of the stylists at The Banyan Tree before, and it’s been great to see their familiar faces as I get settled in to my new station. I will miss my Barber Brothers over at Midtown Barbershop but I now get the chance to get treated as a client when I visit Skills for my haircuts. Here’s to the next chapter, I’m excited to see what’s in store!
I’ve ordered a few new items from R+Co and can’t wait to hear some feedback on how the product feels and wears throughout your day. R+Co is a company that specializes in quality hair care and I love everything about them.
“R+Co is about an experience. The packaging and fragrances were designed to enhance that experience and evoke a feeling, place, style or attitude. You’ll know just by looking at a bottle or tube what a product is meant to do, and the subtle yet sophisticated fragrances—meant for both men and women.
Our products are formulated without parabens, sulfates (SLS or SLES), mineral oil and petrolatum. They are all vegetarian, cruelty-free, gluten-free and color-safe.”
I aim to keep an array of products on hand for the variety of clients that sit in my chair. It’s good to have some options! If there is something you would like to try or curious if it would work for your hair type and style, don’t be afraid to ask!
I celebrated Second Saturday this month with a Donation Day at Midtown Barbershop! One of my fellow barber brothers, Justin, is a recent cancer survivor. I felt inspired to bring our community together in hopes of raising him some money and lift his spirits through his recovery. I feel that this is a topic many people can relate to. I have lost family members to the unfortunate disease, as well as know many of its survivors. This was a cause that pulled at my heart strings so I wanted to host a fundraiser to show some support!
Raffle winners took home baskets full of GIBS hair product and Midtown Barbershop t-shirts, dontated by our shop OG Skills the Barber, and my chair was kept busy by all my amazing clients whose service costs were donated as well. Together we raised over $850! I am beyond proud to be surrounded by a community of people who support one another! I know our efforts have uplifted our homie Justin and brightened his road to recovery. Thank you to all those who participated, you guys rock!!
Congrats to the raffle winners: Bryan J. P. and Rob H.!
