The end of a work shift is always liberating. Hard workers can finally put their responsibilities on hold for a short while and treat themselves to a little relaxation. Looking good and feeling good can certainly go a long way in helping someone destress after a long day at the office. Luckily, The Barbershop—located in the Fashion Island Hotel in Newport Beach—is committed to giving each customer a unique and pleasurable time that will help them forget their worries.

Sarah Crowe of the Irvine Company (which manages the hotel) explains that it is the only barbershop “located in the Fashion Island/Newport Center area,” and its inspiration comes from the concept of “live, work, play” by providing services to gentlemen “who live and work in our backyard.” At The Barbershop, one can expect to spend roughly $45—though gratuity is suggested—for a quality haircut from a master barber, a hot straight razor shave, a traditional hot towel, a complimentary shoeshine and even beer to sip during this experience.

Though many are not normally provided with a shoeshine and a drink with their haircut, what really sets The Barbershop apart is how it utilizes a “one-chair” policy to ensure intimate and personalized experiences. To master barber Shea Trettewick, it is important that customers are satisfied each moment they are in the establishment. He takes advantage of this one-on-one time to understand exactly what one is looking for. Once he has a good idea, Trettewick puts his years of experience to use, making sure to give his clients that perfect look. The Fashion Island Hotel General Manager, Gerard Widder, is extremely proud of the contribution The Barbershop has made to all men, whether they are local or not. “We’re thrilled to assist gentlemen in Newport Center Drive (and our guests) by providing a highly personalized and talented barber and ensuring men of Newport Center remain stylish and looking their best,” Widder explained. This unique affair does not start and end in the chair, however. The Spa’s eucalyptus steam and locker rooms, resort-style pool and fitness center are also open, offering more ways to shake off stress. As the hotel’s website says, “proper grooming should be a pleasure.”
