Five Things to Know About Boston Barber Company
When master barber and longtime North End resident Robert Dello Russo first envisioned Boston Barber Company, he pictured a neighborhood barbershop that balanced old-school craft with new-school sensibilities reflecting the grit and heart of his hometown. His dream didn’t just become a reality, but it also spawned a second location in Beacon Hill. Read on to learn more about the shop:
They cut hair with an eye on style and a nod to the past. The barbers can master everything from scissor cuts to skin tapers, and conclude every cut with a hot-lather neck shave with a straight razor.
The space makes you feel like you traveled back in time—but brought your music with you. Both locations feature decidedly masculine accents including tufted leather furniture with worn patinas, exposed brick walls, checkerboard floors, and a modern playlist of songs.
They’ve garnered the attention of celebrities and high-profile magazines. For example, Bruins player Milan Lucic stopped by and rewarded himself with a cut after winning the Stanley Cup, and the visit was documented by ESPN Magazine.
Their products help you stay well-groomed. After a haircut, you can grab tins of Suavecito or Uppercut Deluxe pomade, as well as facial hair products such as beard oil and mustache wax.
The North End location also offers ink and drinks. During a visit to the original spot, you can sit at the ornately furnished espresso bar for a cup of Lavazza coffee, or sit with one of the onsite tattoo artist’s for some new ink.
