Not Your Average Barber Shop

We were excited to learn all about how Uptown Barber Lounge has been able to build such an impressive reputation, so we sat down with the Co-Owner (with his brother), Mike.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Uptown Barber Lounge stand apart from their competitors. Mike told us that they are an all-around barber shop that can offer the latest styles to any client, whether they’re 80 or eight. He said that their environment is very important to them, and they make sure it is laid-back and not at all threatening.

Mike also told us a bit more about their business mission. He said:

“It’s deeper than cutting hair; we teach and invest in our barbers, and our barbers teach and invest in our customers. As a barber here, you have many different roles — you could be a counselor one day, a sports anchor the next, or just a friend. Barbering is just an access point to connect with all the great people we serve.”

Building Success Through Customer Service

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

“Take care of the customer first and foremost. At the end of the day, online marketing is extremely important — it’s the heartbeat we live in today. You have to be a player in the virtual world and in the real world. You have to change with the times and change with the environment as technology advances. The reality is, if you do not get involved with an online presence, you will miss out on a lot of opportunities.”


Congratulations to Uptown Barber Lounge for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Mike for taking the time to speak with us!
