Master Barber

 I'm Wayne, and my philosophy is that men's grooming isn't just a job; it's my stage, my canvas, my medium for self-expression. I can't imagine doing anything else, and I'm thankful for all my regular clients who, for the last decade, have shared in the experience of my creative process. I look forward to making your time in our salon pleasant, relaxing, and memorable. My attention to detail will leave you feeling and looking amazing. My specialties include haircuts, straight razor shaves, ear and nose waxing, and scalp treatments.
