Hairdresser’s new York location is being renovated, so the hairdressing salon that started as a single-story barbershop has opened a new location on Broadway.
The barbers, who are all New Yorkers, say the new location, which will be open through May, is a way to introduce themselves and keep the salon going.
“It’s a way for us to connect with people and keep them in the loop on the latest trends,” said salon owner Sam O’Brien.
The salon’s new location is at 10 Broadway between 8th and 9th Avenues, between Ninth and Tenth streets, and across from the Hairdressery on Broadway and 9.
The salon’s first salon opened in the Village at the turn of the century.
“The people were very supportive of the salon, and they wanted to keep the place going,” said owner Dan DeLaCava.
The barbers were looking to expand, and so they decided to take a step in that direction.
“They’ve got a very large collection of old hair, so they have a lot of history behind the salon,” he said.
“There’s a lot more people that come in here to do a hair cut and then they’re gone.”
DeLaCaava said that when the salon opened, the salon was a single story, with a barber and two other men.
“When the barber came in, he just wanted to have his barbers cut his hair and he wanted to be the barbers,” DeLaca said.
But after they did that, he had to move the barers to the salon.
The new salon will offer haircuts and hairpieces, and the barbs and brushes will be available at the bar, and there will also be a full-service salon on Broadway between 9th and 10th AvenUES.
“The hair salon has always been the same.
It’s always been a single space, but this time it’s a whole new space,” said DeLaCanas son, David.
“We’re really excited about that.
I think it’s great to see the salon come to a new era.”
DeLaCanos son, who also runs the barbing salon, said that he’s excited about the new barbers and hairdresses.
“People want to be part of the history and to see how different this place is,” he told Gothamist.
“I think the people of New York want to see that.”
The barber’s new store is located on the corner of Broadway and Eighth Avenue, at 1401 Broadway, and will be closed on March 3.
The hairdellers will be back at their old location in the new space.
