The History Of Antique Barber
Antique Barber is the brainchild of shop owner, master barber and educator, Kamal Nuru. From an early age Kamal fell in love with old things (antiques). Kamal feels he owes it all to his Fresh Air Fund family, Tom and Karen. When Kamal was the young age of 8 he and his siblings were sent upstate NY to summer camp, for the much-needed fresh air coming from the inner city. Not to mention, Kamal ’s parents needed a break from the over whelming pressure of having a large family. Karen would take Kamal and Sam his fresh air fund brother to auctions all throughout the summer. Kamal grew fond of the big yards full of old tables chairs and all types of equipment especially the rhyming style of the auctioneer. Kamal says when he got older and found his passion, barbering; he noticed how he gravitated toward the old style barber chairs equipment and just the overall history of barbering. Kamal researched books, magazine and newspapers to find barber antiques but it was the Internet that really got him started barber antiques on open (EBay). Before long, Kamal had all types of antique barber chairs, razors, signs, shaving mugs, and just about anything he thought was cool from the old time barbershop. The EBay search became the name of his company Antique Barber, so in 2005, Kamal decided that barbers needed a remix on their look so he started off with T- shirts that would embody the tool of the trade. It wasn’t long before Kamal started designing high-end barber jackets and cutting cloths for Antique Barber. In 2011 Antique Barber is a well-respected company and a fixture at all the hair show across the country. Antique Barber has also branched out into the product side of the industry with its new antiseptic foam and shaving cream. Look for Antique Barber to be a leader in the future of Barber based companies.
