When you get a new fresh haircut it always helps you with your self confidence as you not only feel better, you also look your best. As a dude getting a nice clean fade and straight blade shave with hot towel, after you literally feel like a million bucks. And what better time of year to get lined up then right now heading into the Christmas and holiday season when you spend time with your friends and family.
We had the chance to sit down with Moe from New York Barbershop to learn about his haircut spot West of Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver, as well as learn about the opening of their second location in Yaletown.
How did you get started with New York Barbershop in North Vancouver?
Personally, I’ve always had a passion for cutting hair since a very young age, and living in a city which offers much opportunity like Vancouver I saw a big advantage once I finished my studies. We established New York Barbershop late 2015 at a very small location on Pemberton Ave in North Vancouver. At first like most businesses it does take time until you begin to see customers walking in since you’re new to the area and don’t know many people around but with time we started getting involved in the community and have been growing as of then.
What are some of the more popular and trendy men’s haircuts for this
time of year?
During year end we’ve noticed many of our customers tend to want slicked back cuts and comb overs also. I believe both styles are great and depending on what type of cut the customer is wanting or else they tend to ask for any suggestions which we certainly do recommend.
You are opening a new location downtown Vancouver, how is that coming
It has been consuming much of my time since mid November in my personal life also but since you have to invest a lot of both time and effort to make sure everything is being done properly, but within 3 weeks my team and I were able to get a lot completed which we are planning to open very soon before end of the year.

In your spare time outside of running the business, what do you get up
to for fun?
