A Chat with Mercedes and Hanzas Salon
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Creating an environment that allows clients to relax and breathe while being pampered [and] my attention to detail. [We are a] separate barbershop within a salon.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My vision of what men’s grooming is to become. Business look, casual look, _GQ look—you name it, I like to create it. My passion for what I do is in the end result of the experience._
What do you love most about your job?
Knowing what I do impacts the lives of many people on every level. I love fashion and style. My passion for hair. My passion for men’s grooming. Most of all, making someone smile.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Receiving a call from one of my favorite client’s wife, Catherine Hajjar, thanking me for taking care of her 83-year-old husband, Jack, who had passed away. It took them years to find a good barber. [She said], “You’re an old soul Brent. Not many barbers around like you.“
