The Center Barber & Beauty Shop

Licensed for over 60 years, the Center Barber & Beauty Shop offers expert, traditional barber and stylist hair services and is 3 generation-family-owned.

The Center Barber & Beauty shop is a family-owned business and has been servicing customers for over 60 years. Old school, traditional barbering. First, the late Ramon Vigil, his son Gilbert and late grandson Frank. Gilbert has transferred the business to his 2 other children while he continues to work part time and enjoy retirement. Our beauty salon offers competitive prices and quality services. We are extremely dedicated to continuing the legacy.

Operating as usual

We are warmed and truly grateful with all the love, stories and tributes to our dad 🙏🏼❣️ He enjoyed chatting with and taking care of his clients and often walked in to a long line waiting for him, he was a true master of his craft. He worked doing what he loved for an amazing 60 years and was always generous with his support and guidance to everyone around him. We will miss him dearly.
Services will be held at St. Joseph church, County Rd 59 Los Cerrillos NM at 10:30am on April 8th
In honor of our patriarch both shops will be closed for the day

@haircutharry This week we heard the very sad news about Gilbert Vigil passing away.⁠

It was a joy to meet Gilbert and his family a few years ago and hear their story about @thecenterbarbershop @thecenterbeautyshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The shop was opened in the 1940s by Gilbert’s dad, and in 1975 Gilbert took over the barbershop.⁠

Gilbert was definitely an old school gentleman. What he loved the most about barbering was the people and the relationships built over the decades.⁠

For more than 55 years Gilbert worked as a barber, and he continued to work a couple days a week to cut the hair of his regulars💈❤️⁠

Gilbert felt it was such a blessing to pass on the shop to a third generation along with the tradition of providing a child’s first haircut! Many baby books have a photo of this milestone along with a lock of hair. Gilbert’s son Jude and daughter Velma continue to preserve the legacy of their grandfather, dad, and brother.⁠

We’ll always have good memories of meeting and filming with Gilbert. Sending our love to his family and friends. He will be missed ❤️⁠

💈View from our Solana location... The Kochs barber chairs are very popular to antique collectors. The Theo. A. Kochs Company was one of the first companies to be in the barber supply business. It was established in Chicago during the late 1800’s (estimated to be around 1871). According to its Spring, 1888 catalog, the company’s factory was situated far north of the Chicago River:
