How would you describe your shop’s vibe?
Classic and modern vibes where the good times roll.
We strive to be a shop where everyone feels welcome. Our clientele ranges from 6month olds to 92-year-olds and they all get the same attention and care.
What’s the most popular cut in the shop at the moment?
Due to COVID-19, a lot of guys have overgrown hair which makes a hip mullet the perfect transition.
Tell us something we don’t know about Uppercut Deluxe products?
Kids (and some adults) are always trying to eat the Deluxe. Smells like candy but does not taste like it!
Who is the favorite artist to spin in the shop?
We love us some Black Keys!
What’s the shop’s favorite style to cut?
Man bun!!! Kidding. We really enjoy major transformations. Long to short or long to medium textured shag cut. Either way, change is always good.
What’s the best tip for someone visiting the area?
Ventura is a hidden gem. Make sure to hit up all the local breweries especially MadeWest! Right now you can enjoy downtown Ventura restaurants with plenty of outdoor seating! Almost feels like Covid doesn’t exist 😉
What the best advice for clients before walking in?
Well, we are cutting outside now so I guess that doesn’t apply! Get ready for a genuine conversation, quality cut, a good time, and put a mask on I guess.
Who is the shop’s biggest barbering influence?
We love Steve Purcell! Good Barber. Even Better dude! We just want to be like him.
What is your favorite shop (other than your own)?
Brasstacks Barbershop, Bishop Arts!
