You may know it as the building off of Santa Rita Avenue with the awesome train mural splayed across its roll-up door. Many Tucsonans know it better as Luxe Barber Studio, a local barbershop opened by Nick Baizan.
Luxe opened in January of 2020, located on Broadway Boulevard between Euclid and Campbell. Nick moved with his family from New York to Tucson in 2001, eager to seek out new opportunities in the Old Pueblo. He began his career of cutting hair in 2007, and pursued training at Hollywood Barber College. After completing his schooling he worked for several years at another local institution, Bullets Barbershop. However, Nick was motivated to start his own business, and his dream became a reality early last year.
Unknown to him at the time, the Covid-19 pandemic would begin just weeks after the barbershop opened. This change certainly threw a monkey wrench into their plans. They experienced unexpected closures in the face of a public health crisis. However, Nick and his team of barbers persevered. Since getting the green light from the city to reopen, Luxe has been able to remain open with a steady flow of clientele.
Sitting less than a mile from campus, Nick is eager to become a staple for the local Wildcats. So far, the success of his barbershop has come from word of mouth and online/social media presence. He and his team have established a formidable reputation for professional, quality hair cuts and reasonable prices.
Nick’s nearly 15 years of experience is evident in the versatility of services available. Services range from classic haircuts to more ‘new school’ and modern stylings. Even straight razor shaves and facial hair trimming are comfortable tools in Nick’s tool belt.
So the next time you’re in need of a trim, or when the beard is a little on the shaggy side, be sure to check out Luxe Barber Studio for a professional experience with results you’ll love.
Luxe Barber Studio is open from 9:00am to 5:00pm, Tuesdays through Fridays, and from 9:00am to 3:00pm on Saturdays (walk-ins accepted, appointments preferred).
