Hello - we have a new video coming TODAY!🙌🏼

We recently stopped by The Center Barber & Beauty Shop in Santa Fe, New Mexico and caught up with the Vigil family. Of course, we had to film a wet shave video with Jude and will be releasing this video next!

The Center Barbershop was originally opened in the 1940s by Ramon Vigil and is now a third generation community barbershop.

Currently Jude Vigil and his sister Velma Herrera own the barbershop, and their dad Gilbert Vigil continued to work a couple days a week cutting the hair of his loyal customers up until he sadly passed away in March 2021💈❤️

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 The Center Barber & Beauty Shop 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 ❤️
Ashley knows hair !!! Gave me a great cut that lets me airdry and a look like I spend hours styling.
Victor did a great job on my sons hair!

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.

💈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:
