Rob’s Chop Shop
Located on 3613 Parry Avenue, Rob’s Chop Shop, is the place to go if you want a clean and sharp haircut — a style a contemporary James Dean would be proud of. The traditional barbershop was founded by Rob Villarreal in 1995, and has since become world famous thanks to commitment to restoring the lost art of the traditional barbering. Rob fell in love with barbering at a young age, following in is grandfather’s footsteps; he received his first shaving mug and razor when he was just five.
Rob’s Chop Shop combines the owner’s love for rock and roll and his passion for classic haircuts. Memorabilia covers the wall and the salon only offers traditional Classic Men’s haircuts, such as flat tops, pompadours and Ivy League. The shop also has it’s own range of Hair Pomade, so you are covered for hair styling too. Plus, as in the style of those classic Barbers of the past, you can get your shoes shined too. Such is the reputation of this rockabilly barbershop, that it is by appointment only, so get booking gents!
