"Every man needs a barber he can trust."~ Bill S. (patron)
Chris Menard- Chris has barbering in his blood. His father Gordy was a barber for forty years. After twenty years of cutting hair side by side with his father Chris developed a reputation as one of Central Mass' best barbers. In the eight years he's been with us he has not only built upon that reputation, but has also helped mentor the generation of barbers behind him. Chis enjoys doing flattops but is proficient at any style. When he's not behind the chair he enjoys hunting and fishing but often finds himself cutting wood. A self described "Disney Junkie" Chris hopes to someday be a full time resident of the Magic Kingdom.
Josh Coyrnoyer- At 11 years old Josh was already sweeping floors at his local barbershop. It's no surprise that by 18 he was in barber school and on his way to a great career. He's up on all the latest styles but enjoys giving traditional gentleman cuts the most. Josh loves music. He enjoys taking lessons, studying theory, listening to all genres and playing open mics. He's often seen strumming the guitar between haircuts or playing DJ to a full house of waiting patrons. Someday Josh hopes to open his own barbershop and start a band. Both are inevitable and Josh is well on his way. He's on the journey from floor sweeper to shop owner.
Christian Brothers- Chris said he always wanted to be a barber. Seven years ago he was laid off from the machine shop he had spent 17 years at. That's when he decided to go for it. What he discovered was he's a natural. He enjoys doing classic styles. From youngsters to retired folks, Chris enjoys conversing with everybody. When he's not working in the shop he can be found at the comic book store, watching sports or chillin' with his cat, Big Mike. In the three years he's been with us he's established himself as a great barber and a dependable teammate.
Darren Carr-(20 yrs old) Like many of us, after high school Darren wasn't sure what he wanted to do. His mother, a cosmetologist, and his uncle, our own Christian Brothers, encouraged him to consider barbering. He wasn't sure if he was going to like barber school at first but ended up "falling in love with it." From there on he knew he had found his calling. He enjoys doing skin fades and is quickly gaining a reputation for his designs. When he's not cutting hair or sketching design ideas Darren enjoys playing basketball and hanging out with his friends. Having a young guy at the beginning of his career has brought a sense of renewal to our entire team.
Craig Morin-(37 yrs old) As one of six barbers in his family, Craig was lucky to have some great teachers. He started his apprenticeship under his father at their family shop in Worcester, MA. He was fortunate to then work in the legendary Ron's Barber Shop in Grafton, MA. That eventually lead him to work under Jack Sikes in Spencer, MA. Jack was a great mentor. After teaching Craig "the right way" Jack sold him the barber shop on a hand shake agreement. In the twelve years since then Craig has continued his good fortune. He's been blessed with five beautiful, healthy children. He gets to play in his band, Secret Sage, with his amazing wife. He has also been able to work with the most talented and hard working barbers like the crew he has with him today. Craig and his team of barbers continue in the long tradition of doing it "the right way."
