V’s Barbershop, an upscale barbershop franchise that caters to men, is set to open a Bellingham location in Bakerview Square in May.
The location will include a six-chair barbershop with approximately 1,400 square feet. It will be designed to look like an old-time barbershop with a contemporary twist, featuring real barber chairs, flat-screen televisions and hot lather shaves with a straight-edge razor.
This will be the first V’s Barbershop to open in Washington. Owner Evah Thurman said she was attracted to the franchise for its unique feel.
“I always wanted to own my own business, but I also knew it needed to be different from a traditional spa experience,” said Thurman, who previously worked for a spa in Bellingham. “In doing some research on concepts, I came across the V’s opportunity and immediately recognized the potential and value of owning a true barbershop. While there are many salons and spas catering to women in Bellingham, there isn’t anything like V’s and I know it will be a huge success.”
V’s Barbershop is headquartered in Phoenix, where it has seven locations. There are also two locations in California and one in Texas. For more information, visit www.vsbarbershop.com.
