Not Your Average Barber Shop
We were excited to learn all about Headlines Barber Shop and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with Christian Perez, who co-owns the company.
The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Headlines Barber Shop stand apart from its competitors. Christian told us about their friendly and welcoming atmosphere, saying:
“One of the main things with our guys is that anybody who sits up front, anybody who sits in our barbershop or has a chair in our barbershop, has to greet every client as if they’re their own and they have to say goodbye to every client as well. In a lot of barbershops, you walk in and you don’t even get greeted. It’s kind of unwelcoming, so I think that’s one thing that makes us unique.”
Christian also told us about some of the ways they make things more streamlined and easier for their customers to use, saying:
“Our online booking makes it super easy for the customer. A lot of barbershops rent chairs to barbers and that’s their space that they rent and they handle the business within, but we have more of a team atmosphere… It feels like they’re part of a team. It’s okay, you can sit in anybody’s chair and it’s all good.”
Building Success And Giving Back
Headlines Barber Shop has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Christian how they have managed to grow their business and get their name out.
In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Headlines Barber Shop has spread the word about who they are and what they do by finding ways to give back to the community. They have an upcoming charitable event where each of their seven locations will be reaching out to the local middle school or high school to provide free haircuts. All of the money that is donated at those events will be given to the school’s band program! In the past, they have fed a local high school team for an entire season, or donated Gatorade to a team for their season.
“We’re pretty well entrenched in the community and like to give back. We’re a community barber shop, so our community supports us and we like to support them.”
There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Headlines Barber Shop has managed to. We asked if Christian could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:
“Keep it simple; make it simple for your clients. The easier or more accessible you are to your clients, the easier you’re going to find the road to success. It’s 2020, people want everything now and they want it easy; they don’t want it complicated… They want to be able to pop on an app to make an appointment.”
Christian concluded our chat with this amazing shout-out to his business partners. He said:
“I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my business partners, Chris Bossio, Daniel Santana and Kris Hemch, because I couldn’t do it without them. It started out with three of us, and we like to promote from within. Kris was one of our barbers, but he quickly ascended and we identified that this kid is special. He’s a leader. We put him in charge of managing our third location and we quickly realized that this guy is really special. He opened up or helped us launch our fourth, fifth, and sixth stores. After he managed it there, we said, listen, this kid is special. We need to reward him, it only makes sense, so, now he is an owner as well.”
Congratulations to Headlines Barber Shop for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Christian for taking the time to speak with us!
