NYC Barbershop Museum
Historically, the men’s Barbershop emerged before women began going to their first salons. Working men treated themselves by getting haircuts, manicures, shoe shines and facial massages. As a result, the Barbershop became a place where they would gather and socialize, smoke a cigar or have drinks together.
Royal Haircut Packages are performed by the founder himself. Arthur Rubinoff, a 4th generation Master Barber, leading educator and celebrity groomer, has been collecting Barber antiques and memorabilia for over 25 years. He was inspired to open the NYC Barbershop Museum, to offer his clients the finest haircuts, shaves, and grooming services in an engaging turn-of-the-century environment, surrounded by the historic artifacts and memorabilia he loves.
“The history of the Barber is a very rich but forgotten one,” explains Rubinoff. “My goal was to give respect to all Barbers and our history as well as educate. Barbering is true art with a fascinating legacy.”
“Every haircut or a shave at the Museum is an exclusive memorable experience. First of all, it is a first-class traditional treatment, on top of that presented in a rich environment of an authentic Barber Shop, - classic Men’s grooming and socializing venue.”

“Barbering is an Art. The project is part promotion and part penchant for barbering history.”
- Corey Kilgannon, The New York Times
“Step back in time, through blue and wine-colored velvet curtains, into this museum and authentic barbershop where – amid chandeliers, gilt-corniced walls and Empire-style chests – you can get a haircut, straight razor shave and a head massage, seated in a 1920s hydraulic chair, while learning about the vintage tools displayed around you. You can buy shaving cream and shampoo from the museum’s proprietary line as well.”
