The barbershop was an American cultural icon from the early nineteenth century through the late 1960s. For generations, the barbershop was a way of life; a place to relax, enjoy great conversation, and get a fine haircut and classic shave. Barbers built personal relationships with their clients that lasted a lifetime.
As men’s styles changed and the unisex craze swept across America, barbershops almost disappeared. Men started going to salons that were devoid of everything they enjoyed about getting a haircut. These modern salons were missing the classic touches of the American barbershop: personalized service and great conversation in an environment geared strictly toward men.
In 1999, Joe Grondin, a Master Barber with over 30 years of experience, opened the first Roosters in Lapeer, Michigan. Joe’s goal was to re-establish the traditional men’s grooming center. He sought to create an atmosphere that evoked the feeling of a classic American barbershop, focused on providing quality service to men of all ages.
From the moment our clients arrive, it’s as though they have stepped back in time to a simpler way of life. At Roosters, we get back to basics, encouraging our clients to relax and unwind in an atmosphere reminiscent of the past. Our first priority is meeting the unique needs of each client, from a thorough initial consultation to offering styling tricks and techniques. We also offer other services including facial shaves, head shaves, color that blends away grey, and men’s facials.
The Roosters experience combines modern men’s grooming techniques with classic barbershop elements. We strive to provide men with a customized experience through classic services and products that reaffirm what it means to look and feel like a 21st century man.
