Stacey has been around a barber shop her entire life. Her father, Dave, owned his shop in Carteret, New Jersey when she was a toddler. The barber shop was her home and the customers her extended family. Imagine if you can the wide array of people who visited the barber shop day after day, week after week and year after year. Stacey received her barber’s license in Woodbridge, New Jersey over 20 years ago. After working in a New Jersey salon for a few years, she decided the South Florida lifestyle was the next step in her journey. She waited patiently for a spot to open up at The Village Barber and joined the team in 1996. Working with her dad, who is also her mentor, is very special to her. As the baby of the team, Stacey still learns from her dad, Dave, The Village Barber owner, Larry (who she refers to as “The World’s Greatest Boss”), as well as Tony and Bonnie. Stacey invites you to visit The Village Barber for a real haircut, from real barbers. She works on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and welcomes you to join her extended family. You’ll enjoy a great haircut, a pleasant break from the hustle and bustle of life and the overwhelming desire to return again.
