Owner Javier Eneque is no stranger to cutting hair. In fact, Javier says he has been cutting hair since he was 4 years old. He said that while cutting hair did begin as a hobby, Javier’s experience of discovering how to turn his hobby into a vocation was crucial, but it wasn’t exactly easy. Javier served for four and a half years and completed three tours in the U.S. Marine Corps. And when he got back, armed with a newfound sponsorship from Veterans Affairs, he completed school.
Since then, Javier has continued learning and practicing so that now Good to Go is able to execute almost any cut you can imagine. Javier says he and his staff are committed to making their clients look and feel their best, and they offer more than 10 unique cuts and shave services to do just that. Javier and his team do everything from basic trims to mohawks to precise face shaves.
So what looks are men feeling these days? Javier says these are his most popular requests:
Keep it simple and professional. The sides and top are trimmed to keep the look natural but clean. This cut works for virtually any type of hair and is versatile and easy. You can wash-and-go, or apply some styling product to elevate the look.
For a more trendy look, the skin fade is the go-to style for many these days. While it can work for a man of any age, it’s most popular with younger men, so it definitely gives a more youthful appearance. The key to a skin fade is the blend: it starts with very short hair near the neck and smoothly transitions to volume on the top. It’s versatile too in that you can choose the length for the top so it exactly matches your overall look.
Of course, you can always go for that mohawk.
While he has a deep passion for cutting hair, Javier says that his daily interaction with his customers is his favorite part of his work as a barber. He says there is something special about the trust between barber and customer, and he’s happy and proud to have made friendships with his clients. That’s important because he says that he and the barbershop “plan to be here for a while.”
