Vincenzo & Sons Barbering Emporium was introduced in 2017 as a combination of two barbershops owned by the Noto family; Vincenzo & Son (76 Glos Rd est.1967) and The Barbering Emporium (316 Glos Rd est.2004). We are incredibly proud to celebrate 50 years of trade on the Gloucester Road in June 2017.
Vincenzo brought his barbering skills over from Sicily in 1963. Sons, Franco and Giuseppe grew up in the barbershop watching their Father, where his skills were passed on to them both. In addition, they both now have over 30 years barbering experience and use techniques taught to them at college, integrating modern approaches with traditional barbering skills to enable them to adapt to clients' individual needs. The team is also joined by Pino, who is an experienced barber who has been with us for over 25 years.
Throughout their years of barbering, the Notos have seen many changes to the industry and saw a lot of styles come, go and return with a new name. One big change has been in the way that men look after themselves. With this in mind, Vincenzo & Sons Barbering Emporium was created to provide a place of escapism which we hope will appeal to men from all walks of life and of any age, in a relaxing and friendly environment.
We don't take appointments, just come in during our opening times. We follow a queuing system within the shop and there is complimentary tea/coffee facilities whilst you wait. To avoid disappointment, we recommend that you avoid arriving at the shop just before our scheduled closing time as if there is a queue we may not be able to accommodate you.
Please also note that if you have a preferred barber, then feel free to ask to wait for him - no offence is taken by other barbers. It is important to us that you have your preferred barber provide you with the cut that you want. We aim to provide an individual treatment to each client as no cut and no hair is ever the same!
We have a variety of products that are available for sale within the shop, and they are all used in-house, so you can try before you buy.
We look forward to welcoming you to our barbershop.
