Opened since 2012, trendy hair salon Junior & Hatter now opened a second location, Junior & Hatter Gents. The Wynwood-based salon’s new barber shop is located right next door to its 1,100 square foot space in the center of the arts district. Junior & Hatter is the collective vision of master stylists Andrea Battista and Mario Silvestri. Here is more information about Junior & Hatter Gents :
According to Urban Daddy :
“Yes, you know Junior & Hatter. Great haircuts, Vespas for sale, all that. Well, this place is pretty similar, mostly because it’s owned by the same people. Also, it’s right next door. So now if you’re booking any kind of gents service—beard trimming, shave, manicure for man hands—you’ll be set up here.”
According to Miami.com :
“Nestled inside the Wynwood Building at 2750 NW Third Ave., Gents’ neighbors include Del Toro Shoes, Andromeda Visual, Zak the Baker, JugoFresh and spate of art galleries. The 2,000 square foot space delivers a vintage vibe with a folksy feel. Battista and Silvestri conceptualized, designed and built the studio themselves with the intent of creating a homey ambience. Thrifters and antique aficionados, Battista and Silvestri are known to scour antique and second-hand shops and garage sales for prizes such as black-and-white photographs, a 1906 piano, boating relics, Emil Padir barber chairs and a 1072 Vespa motorcyle. Those salvaged diamonds-in-the rough are refinished and repurposed by Battista and Silvestri themselves. I go to the different thrift stores every morning while drinking my coffee to find the next gem, Battista says. Guests are encouraged to play, too, compliments of a dartboard, Foosball table and some good ol’ TV viewing.” written by Maria Tettamanti.
According to OceanDrive :
“The retro-style shop offers specialized grooming for men, including classic hot towel shaves ($40) and beard trims ($25). Andrea Battista and Mario Silvestri, the dapper co-founders of Junior & Hatter, have created a relaxed, homey vibe to make clients feel comfortable as they receive expert treatments. The space is decorated with antiques and thrift store finds, as well as man cave essentials like a foosball table, dart boards, and HDTV.” written by CHELSEA OLSON.
