New barbershop now open in Ballston

After more than a year searching for the perfect location in Arlington, a married couple finally opened Inspire Barbershop in March.

The barbershop is located at 710 N. Glebe Road in the Ballston area, roughly across the mall.

Manager Ashley Do has been working as a hairstylist for six years and was determined to find a location in Arlington to open a shop of her own. Then she came across the spot at the recently-built Waycroft building.

“Everyone here’s very nice, polite,” Do said of Arlington. “They’re really friendly and there are a lot of young people.”

Do fell in love with the location and she and her husband, owner Brian Tuan Vo, thought the size of the storefront was perfect. It took about half a year to open in the space.

“We were so very happy to have our first barbershop,” said Vo, who works as a real estate agent. “Ashley is very good at what she does… She loves to do hair and make people feel good.”

She is one of four hairdressers at the shop, which also provides beard trimming, facials and eyebrow waxing.

Although most of its services are geared toward men, the barbershop also provides haircuts for women and children, as well as gray hair coverage for women. Haircuts for men are $25, while other services range from $7 for shampooing to $60 for a facial. All its services would be done in less than an hour, according to the store’s website.

Do said what makes the barbershop special is its range of services, listing examples such as skin fades, regular and military-styled haircuts. She said all the hair stylists use the same technique so the hair cuts don’t vary depending on which person is working.

“We do a really good job the same way,” she said.

The barbershop, which opened its doors in late March, is open from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on weekdays. It is also open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
