New Barbershop to Open Inside Barclays Center
PROSPECT HEIGHTS — A barbershop crew is hoping its straight-razor shaves will be a slam dunk at its newest location.
The Lower East Side shop Fellow Barbers, founded in 2006, has teamed with GQ magazine to open at Brooklyn's Barclays Center later this week.
“We are really excited to join forces with exceptional partners like GQ and Barclays Center,” said Fellow Barber founder Sam Buffa in a statement. “On-site we will be able to offer an entirely new audience the opportunity to experience specialty services from our talented barber team.”
The new site — named GQ Barbershop — will be located on the main concourse and open for business during the venue's sporting events and concerts in 2014.
The barbershop's look is consistent with Fellow Barber's old-school style, complete with black and white floor tiles, swivel chairs, and old New York City subway and street signs.
Buffa's vision of a barbershop is "where men would discuss sports, politics and culture while getting a haircut or shave," according to the Fellow Barber website. He wants his shops to "represent that same kind of engaging atmosphere."
Prices start at $10 for a cleanup, $15 for a beard trim and $40 for a fade. A shave and a cut will run $75.
GQ Barbershop will celebrate its grand opening Jan. 10 during the Nets' game against the Miami Heat.
