I’d like you to meet Ethan DeNolf, founder & owner of Virginia Barbers Club, which recently opened doors for business in Old Town Alexandria, on North Lee Street between Cameron & Queen. At first glance it’s a specialty men’s barbershop. But it’s so much more. Although clients can schedule day-of appointments, it pays to become a club member. Members get special perks, such as monthly networking events, priority access to the booking system, and special access to the almighty fridge.
It’s clear that Ethan has a passion for community, both in the barbering world as well as the local community. Back in 2015, he started VBC as an association to raise awareness amongst barbers about state rules and regulations, especially pertaining to licensing. Now that the shop has opened its doors, Ethan is planning various community outreach events, so keep an eye out for those. You can check it all out at www.virginiabarbersclub.com.
Just another of the many beautiful doors of Old Town Alexandria. Hard afternoon sunlight doing what it does best: showcasing color, texture, and form.
