Kennedy’s All-American barber club brings the “old-school barbershop” feel to the 21st century. While we have only been around since 2008, we have had clients that have been with us since the very beginning. We have had young men grow up from our kid’s cuts to our straight razor shaves, we’ve given the college grad a clean cut for his interview, and we’ve prepped the groom for his big day.

Some club members come in once a month for a cut, some twice a week for a shave and even some that just stop in to brighten our day. Each Kennedy’s member makes an impact on the staff’s day and the club’s atmosphere. Some members really leave their stamp on our business, and our hearts. At our Winter Park, Florida club, one member Mr. Ed Hillstead, embodied the true Kennedy’s spirit and did nothing but put a smile on our faces when he came through the door.

“Your crew [at Winter Park Kennedy’s] treated him with every kindness, as he showed up with no appointment” stated Mr. Hillstead’s friend Kevin Walls. “they just treated him like a king”

Mr. Ed, as he was more commonly known, was a devoted member at Kennedy’s since the beginning and continued to be through his 105th birthday before he passed away.

Here at Kennedy’s we are not just about providing you with the best haircut and straight razor shave, but also about building a community. Mr.Ed was a man we were honored to serve at Kennedy’s and we will miss him greatly.

We would love to hear your Kennedy’s story, too! If you have had a notable experience at Kennedy’s and would like to submit a testimonial, please do so on our Contact Us page or submit to info@kennedysbarberclub.com.


“Been a member for close to 7 years. Great place where everyone knows your name and fun to get a hair cut and shave and conversation and my kids love it.”
