Now Open: North Point Barber

There are a batch of men’s grooming opening around Reston, but the owners of North Point Barber say their niche is old-school, no-nonsense men’s hair care.

Cousins Trang Nguyen and Kevin Do opened North Point Barbers at 1436 North Point Village Center about two weeks ago. Even though the shop is a few doors down from a Hair Cuttery and the high-end KLS Studios, Nguyen says they know they have a market.

“We are not doing color,” said Nguyen, who worked at nearby Reston Barber Shop for 10 years. “Nothing fancy. Just making men look handsome.”

Customer Joseph Britto, getting a haircut on Wednesday, says that’s what brought him into the shop.

“I am just a guy who wants a straightforward haircut,” he said.

Cuts at North Point Barber are $14, with discounts for kids, seniors and military members. They also offer hot towel shaves. Walk-ins are welcome.

North Point Barber is open weekdays, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Phone: 703-429-1147.

    I got haircuts from this guy at the other place he worked. He does an excellent job and I would highly recommend.

    Once you know of a good barber, keep it a secret, cause once word gets out, that barber will be in high demand. I stopped going to see Arthur from The Barber Shop in Herndon just because you guaranteed a 30 minute wait at the minimum.
