Not Your Average Barber Shop

We were excited to learn all about how Oval Office has been able to build such an impressive reputation, so we sat down with the owner, Carlos Carvana.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Oval Office stand apart from their local competitors. For Carlos, it is all about inclusion. He told us that being a person of color, there were times he would walk into a shop and it felt like hearing a record stop. His goal was to create a space that was accommodating to everyone. Carlos shared:

“The playing field is equal here; we serve everyone regardless of race or economic background.”

Building Success Through Referrals

With as impressive a reputation as Oval Office has, it was no surprise to us that word-of-mouth is their main source of new and returning customers. In fact, Carlos tells us that this has been the only way they have really grown their company!

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Oval Office has managed to. We asked if Carlos could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“Never give up — fight the good fight.”


Congratulations to Oval Office for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Carlos for taking the time to speak with us!
