Meet Dan, Owner and Stylist for our Barbershop Lounge (BSL)! In 2016, Dan purchased the Barbershop Lounge with a vision. This vision being to transform the brand into Boston’s Top Men’s Salon and Barbershop. Prior to taking ownership, Dan refined his skills in the men’s grooming industry by working with top grooming icons throughout the first stage of his career. From there, Dan led his own seminars across the U.S., as a representative for top men’s lines, tool companies, and men’s focused curriculums. Through this journey stemmed Dan’s vision for the direction of the BSL, which has now come into fruition.
Bringing a professional yet cool and comfortable ambience, prior to every cut Dan presents clients with a consultation and grooming discussion. From there, once a vision is formulated, he follows-up with a perfectly-executed haircut and recommendations for home care products and usage. Passionate about the importance of a complete men’s grooming experience, Dan remains enthusiastic in his efforts with every visit to his chair.
With experience in giving unparalleled shaves to Bruins players, celebrities and billionaires, Dan’s clientele is widely-ranging; including Financial and Biotech icons, numerous professional athletes, and style-forward Bostonians. Book your next cut with Dan when looking for an expert scissor and razor cut that is on the technical side of the spectrum, a clipper cut that has detailed shaping and sculpting, and more!
Meet Rosa! A member of our lounge from the very start, Rosa was recruited to help launch the Barbershop Lounge brand in 2008, and has been impressing us with every cut since. Over the past ten years, Rosa has organically grown a large following; particularly with the male business demographic of the Back Bay. With over thirty years of experience in the industry, she is able to bring a unique experience that showcases her vast skill set and professionalism, as a master stylist to the lounge. Take a seat when looking for an expert cut for medium to long hair, hair that may need grey blending, or natural and casual clipper cuts.

Take a seat, and meet Valeria! Recruited in 2008 to develop the salon side of our lounge, Valeria is an original member of our team and no stranger to a shave, with over 15 years of experience as a master stylist.

When away from the salon, Valeria can be found pursuing her other passions such as dancing, cooking, and discovering new music!
