Jerod Theobald, owner of flow – a shop for men, is taking on a new adventure. In late March, he’ll be opening Cutman Barbershop, a classic, two-chair barbershop located within his Covington-based menswear boutique, flow – a shop for men.
Theobald says that to create the boxing-inspired space, he worked with local interior designer Corey Rineair as well as Durham Brand & Co. on the barbershops logo and branding.
Despite the new launch of the barbershop, Theobald says that it’s been in his business plan all along, it just unfortunately had to be set aside when he opened flow – a shop for men, because he didn’t have the funding to launch both ventures at the same time.
“After three years in my current location, an opportunity to move to a better space at the heart of downtown Covington opened up and I jumped at it,” he explains. “The new shop will be located inside the newly renovated Mutual Building and across the street from the future site of Hotel Covington on Madison Avenue.”
Cutman Barbershop will offer traditional barbering services once the shop opens. Theobald says these services include men’s haircuts, straight razor shaves and beard trims. Additionally, the barbershop will carry a selection of grooming products from brands such as Blind Barber and Uppercut.
The cost of a haircut and straight razor shave from Cutman Barbershop will cost $18 while beard trimming services will start at $6.
Located at 619 Madison Avenue, Covington, KY 41011, Theobald says a soft opening is tentatively scheduled for March 27. In the mean time, the shop is seeking both part-time and full-time barbers. He adds that those interested in applying can reach the shop at email@example.com.
