Ben is passionate in helping people achieve the look and feeling that they expect from a great fresh cut. 

As a barber, he is skilled and equipped to provide services like; pompadours, gentleman’s cut, fades, beard trim and hot shaves. He also enjoys suggesting styles that would suit the individual should you ever want to switch things up a bit.
