In a time of Barbershop Renaissance, Raul’s barbershop has been running for more than 40 years in the East Village. Raul came from Puerto Rico. His family owns 4 barbershops back in San Juan. It’s in his blood.
Six days a week, Raul, his son and several family members provide service to his loyal local clients. They talk about politics or personal issues while the radio plays joyful music.
