interior design for a barber shop

Maybe it’s salon backlash–who wants to be bothered with appointments or chemical smells–or perhaps it’s something deeper than that, a desire in the digital age of online communities to gather in a physical place to discuss news or gossip. Whatever the case, the barbershop is making a comeback amongst city-dwelling men.

Although your grandfather’s barbershop never went away–the no-appointment-necessary corner shop with basic clipper cuts, beard trims and shaves, a new kind of barbershop is popping up that takes the no-fuss philosophy and traditional services of a barbershop and combines it with carefully considered vintage interiors and barbers who have the ability to perform a full range of contemporary and classic cuts, from messy shags to slick pompadours.

The shop is designed to look and feel like a real chop shop. From the leather racing chairs that double as seats for waiting customers, and the grungy “rim” clock by the front counter; these details are what’s key to creating a memorable first impression to newcomers of the shop. The style and concept of the store is what will keep them coming back. There are a couple arcade games in the back, a few flat screen TV’s to be able to kill some time on the PS3 while waiting for a haircut, and you even have DJ Fingerprints (of Power 96 fame) that spins in-store every Friday. You won’t just get a haricut at Chop Shop, you’ll get an experience.

Big Ed and Amir, who are brothers, partnered with long time associate Nut to open Chop Shop Barbershop earlier this year. Big Ed, who is the face of the company and manager of the shop, wants to make it clear that Chop Shop was not an overnight creation. The Chop Shop Barbershop that we see and know of today has been in the making for about a decade.

The original Chop Shop Barbershop came by way of Big Ed, who was the owner of the original Chop Shop in the late 90’s via its location in Patterson, New Jersey where Big Ed, Amir and Nut are originally from. The name of the barbershop was the same, but the concept and interior designs were not yet in place. Eventually, New Jersey life became stagnant for the three friends and the appeals of sunny South Florida became more of a desired way of life. Big Ed sold the business in early 2000, packed his bags and eventually met with Amir and Nut to take on life in the “305” with full intentions to come to Miami and make some early-retirement money. After 7 years of making legitimate contacts and prosperous business moves in South Florida, the idea of a Chop Shop Barbershop in Miami started becoming more and more real to them and finally came to fruition on Sunday, January 16, 2007. That date was the official public unveiling and grand opening of the shop
