I have temporarily stopped adding new content to Innomind.org because I have been extremely busy helping my brother build our new barber shop. We called it – Quality Barbers. Since mid-June 2011 we took a lease in the historic Carnegie Hill area of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. This area is home to many museums such as the Guggenheim, Metropolitan, and the New museum. We really love this area and the people living here. As we were building up the place everyone who saw our place has been so welcoming. Now, one may ask, why calling it Quality Barbers? We come from a family of barbers, my father has been barbering for over 35 years, I learnt the skill from him at the age of 15, becoming financially independent in my high school years. My brother has been cutting hair for over 10 years now and he always wanted to open his own place. I have always told my brother that in this profession if he wants to keep permanent clientele he needs to treat his customers as he would want to be treated when receiving a haircut. Years passed, and I see that he has been following this golden rule, despite having little patience, something he shares with my father. So when we were signing the lease he promised to have patience and discipline in all aspects of his life for the first year or so, especially with his spending. We have already been in business for the first month and a half, and, so far he has been diligent.
Here are the images of what the place was like before and what we turned it into in couple of months. All work was done by the two of us except for the plumbing, canopy, ductless ac installation, and window glass installation.
