We have deep roots in our Roxbury Community
A-1 Barbershop started in May 15 ,1998. Before that it was George's Barbershop from 1954-1998. Previous to that its was two Jewish brothers that owned it from 1922-1954.
We aim to preserve the art of old school barbering. A lot of barber's get their start here at A-1. Some even went on to own there own barbershop's. To name just a couple Leo, he owns Top Notch on Washington St. Omar, who owns Platinum Cuts. Christopher who works at the barber school. Here at A-1 we believe in diversity, so our clientele is very diverse. We are proud of our good work that we do in the community, for our resident's and especially for the different students that goes to school in the South End area.
At A-1 we have experienced barbers Dwayne, Joanne, Wizzy and Omar, amongst the four of them Dwanye has been a Master Barber since 1994.
