V Barber shop Jersey CityJERSEY CITY, NJ (April 8, 2013) –Coming this May, a new barbershop will bring back the nostalgia of a time long since passed. V’s Barbershop will be opening at 389 Washington Boulevard, its second location in Hudson County and 21st in the country. At V’s Barbershop, a haircut is a ritual, a nostalgic experience harkening back to a simpler day when men gathered at the corner barbershop to discuss everything from business, to sports and current events. V’s barbers provide both traditional, short haircuts, as well as contemporary and trendy styles. Every haircut will include a hot lather neck shave and will always end with a relaxing shoulder massage. As you get your hair cut, sit back in one of the authentic refurbished 1950’s-era Koken barber chairs while enjoying your favorite game on your own flat screen TV.

Owners Dan Vassallo and Frank Ferlito, both old friends, fraternity brothers and Jersey City residents, hope the shop will serve as a gathering place for regulars and neighbors to talk sports and other things, and also a place where fathers can bond with their sons. Dan and Frank are proud to open their classic barbershop in the redevelopment zone of the Waterfront District across the street from the 105-year-old Powerhouse. V’s Barbershop is committed to providing the Historic Downtown Jersey City community with an environment where getting a great haircut or a traditional hot-lather shave also means building great memories for men and their sons. “We are excited to become an integral part of the community where men will be able to enjoy the traditional father-son barbershop experience at an affordable price,” explains Jim Valenzuela, founder and CEO of the chain. “We plan on being here for a long time.”

V’s Barbershop offers specialty packages such as The Works and The Whole Deal offering a combination of multiple services. Getting married? Let V’s Barbershop give you and your groomsmen a specialty package that includes haircuts, straight razor shaves, shoe shines and cigars.
