The first incarnation of Helen’s Barbershop opened on Windsor Street in 1998. For five and a half years Helen ran the two-chair, two-barber business which quickly grew popular among the military personnel in Halifax.
Helen’s Barbershop has returned stronger than ever offering the best haircuts in Halifax at its new, current location at 3111 Kempt Road. Now joined by six hair stylists, Helen’s Family Barbershop, Salon and Tanning has extended its services to suit your whole family. While the business has changed over the years, Helen has not forgotten her relationships with her clientele from the beginning—military, police and firefighters always receive a 10% discount off haircuts and every cut includes a hot straight-razor neck shave!
For Helen, watching clients grow up with her business is what makes being a barber so special. Since leaving her home country of Ukraine in 1993, Helen has fallen in love with her career and Halifax, crediting her energetic staff, loyal clients and their families. Helen’s passion for making people look and feel good about themselves will never change, come in and see for yourself!
