V’s Barbershop, the nationally acclaimed old-fashioned barbershop specializing in haircuts and hot lather shaves, has moved its popular Kierland Commons shop to a new location, one mile away, in the Scottsdale Promenade. The new shop, located at 16205 N.
Scottsdale Road – Suite 105 – Building 7, opens today (November 28 th ) and replaces V’s 16-year old Kierland location with a beautiful new barbershop complete with six antique Koken barber chairs (from the 1950s), multiple flat-screen televisions, iconic sports imagery adorning the walls and barbers in classic uniforms.
To celebrate the opening of the Scottsdale Promenade location, V’s will have an all-day celebration on Friday, December 1 st with food, drinks and giveaways. In addition, 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Burns & Gambo Show will broadcast live from V’s Promenade from 2 PM to 6 PM. In their continued efforts to support police, fire and military personnel, anyone who makes an in-person cash donation of $5 or more to The 100 Club of Arizona will receive a full size Bed Head For Men haircare product by TiGi
(an $18 value).
V’s Barbershops began in Phoenix in 1999 with one shop in the Arcadia neighborhood. Two years later, in October 2001, V’s opened its second location in Kierland Commons. Today, V’s has 34 locations in 11 states, including 12 shops in the Phoenix area. V’s Barbershops are the brainchild of Jim Valenzuela (Mr. V). Recalling his childhood and going to get a haircut with his dad at Nick’s Barbershop in Tucson, Valenzuela identified a need in the marketplace for a first-class barbershop experience. Eighteen years and multiple best-of awards later, V’s has become the place to go for haircuts, hot lather shaves and shoeshines.
“It’s exciting to open our new Scottsdale Promenade barbershop,” said Jim Valenzuela, founder and CEO of V’s Barbershops. “A lot has changed since I opened the Kierland location in 2001 – barbering has experienced a huge resurgence in the last 5-10 years, as has men’s grooming. The new V’s is more modern and offers easier parking options for patrons. Plus, our entire team of professionally-trained barbers from our Kierland shop have made the move. These are barbers who have been with me for over 15 years, so this is incredibly exciting for them.”
V’s Barbershops combine a rich mix of modern amenities with classic style. V’s is committed to providing patrons with a timeless, authentic barbershop experience and strives to foster great memories for men and their sons. At V’s, a haircut is ritual, a nostalgic experience harkening back to a simpler day when men gathered at the corner barbershop to discuss everything from business, to sports, to current events. Specializing in haircuts, hot lather shaves and shoeshines, V’s barbers provide both traditional short haircuts, as well as contemporary and trendy styles. Every haircut includes a hot lather neck shave and always ends with a relaxing shoulder massage. V’s full-service offerings include high-quality haircuts, straight-razor shaves, men’s facials, face massages, moustache and beard trims and shoe shines, with complimentary hot towels, neck and shoulder massages and neck shaves.
Named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of leading franchise opportunities, V’s is headquartered in Phoenix and has been named “Best of the Valley” by the readers of PHOENIX Magazine 14 times in the category of “Best Men’s Haircut.”
