Master Barber Sergio Portela Jr. believes indulgence and relaxation to be the foundation of the barbershop experience. However, he felt little touches such as hot-towel shaves, razor edge-ups, and facial-hair sculpting had gone by the wayside. So in 2012, he opened his own barbershop to revitalize the art with those grooming services, utilizing Art of Shaving products as well as essential oils. Like a Grecian bust wearing a beanie, his repertoire combines traditional touches with modern styling and includes color enhancements as well as tapers, fades, and even cuts. Sergio makes himself available for in-home or at-the-office appointments.
