The Diesel Concept

Diesel Barbershops are the 21st Century versions of the corner barbershop. Customers enjoy services like the signature “Diesel Plus” (haircut, neck shave, shampoo, scalp massage, hot towel face treatment, and shoulder massage) and also watch sports on TV, play video games, and enjoy a local craft beer or soda if they wish. 

Diesel Barbershop gives customers a place to relax - and get an awesome haircut experience. In short, it’s a place for customers who just want to be themselves.

That said, Diesel Barbershops are the antithesis of beauty salons that sometimes come with high drama and gossipy clients. Instead, they are an oasis for customers looking for a more masculine atmosphere where they’re free to talk sports, pop culture, movies, history or whatever their interests are with their barber or other customers. 
In fact, most customers will linger after their haircut to finish their beer or try to set the high score on Donkey Kong. Our staff loves spending time in our shops and customers do too.

Create an amazing experience that's relaxing and helps our customers look and feel good. That's it, that's the concept.

Definitely!
