A new family business has opened promoting versatile creative haircutting, Anthony’s Barbershop at 200 Tamiami Trail N., Unit C in the Hamilton Plaza by the KMI North Bridge. Owner, Anthony Summa is a master barber with 23 years’ experience having been cutting hair since he was 13.
His newly designed shop has three cutting stations and a shampoo station. Summa does designs and custom hair cutting for individual clients, men, women and children. New customers have a consultation to see what they want and explain their needs.
Haircuts include eyebrows, ears, nose trimming and for every gentleman it comes with a straight razor lathered and a hot towel or an electric shave.
Entering the waiting area which has WIFI, there are relaxing modern chairs, coffee, water and an ATM.
“I like the small city appeal of times when everyone went into the barbershop,” said Summa. “I have the old traditional feel with the core value and want people to communicate when they come in here as they did years ago where they knew everyone and had a sense of passion.”
Schooling in Everett, MA, he graduated the University of Massachusetts with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Entrepreneurship and attended Barbering School in Malden, MA. and managed a 40 year old barbers’ shop for 10 years in Littleton, MA.
Opening his own business four years ago which he retains, Anthony’s Barber Shop in Londonderry, NH. has 10 staff and is open 12 hours a day, seven days a week.
A very driven person whose success is due to hard work, dedication and passion Summa welcomes everyone. He has cut the youngest customer at three months old to the oldest at 91. Having established the shop in New Hampshire he moved to Venice for a lifestyle change and opportunity to open this business.
On Sunday June 9 in his Venice shop to honor the northern shop’s 4th anniversary he is having a grand opening social gathering, meet and greet welcoming party from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. with finger foods and drinks.
