About this Business
From Our Editors
Positioned in front of the russet hues of an exposed brick wall, Akwa Grooming's plush leather barber chairs keep a steady watch, ready to cradle customers who pop through the shop's front door. Once seated, these clients give themselves over to a veteran team of barbers led by founders Eric Essen and Rahkeem Taylor. These razor masters clean edges, etch designs, and trim beards left raggedy from accidentally using a portrait as a mirror for several weeks. Shoulder massages accompany most visits, unwinding upper-body stress while hair is tamed. Ladies need not feel left out, with expert stylists on hand to take care of feminine coiffures.
