I started my career at Hancock airport barbershop, where I learned how to master the art of the straight razor from Luigi Fusco. Once I felt confident enough, I decided to move on to a family-run barbershop, where I worked side by side with my uncle Mike, the man who inspired me to get into the business. I worked there for over 15 years and in 2014 I decide to open a barbershop with 3 other barbers who shared the same idea as I did.

I apprenticed for two years at a premier barber shop where I learned many skills in men’s haircuts. After completing my apprenticeship, I received my Master Barber license, which allowed me to work as a master barber for an additional seven years. My skills include regular men’s haircuts, flattops, skin fades, edge ups, kid’s cuts and the use of a razor for facial shaves. I recently partnered with three of the best barbers in Syracuse to open our own barber shop.
I started cutting hair as a young teenager for family members and friends and after high school I decided to make it into a career. Since 1995, I’ve devoted my professional life to the highest level of education and training in our industry and tried to return that along with my passion for what I do to the people who sit in my chair! It means something to be part of everyone else’s routine in life and I am grateful for that! After working for two prominent Salon/Barber Shops in the Syracuse area, I’m very excited to start our own venture and continue to serve Central New York!
Vincenzo Fusco started his career in Barbering in his father’s shop at the Syracuse Hancock Barbershop at the age of 13. He would sweep and watch and learn from his father every day. At the age of 17 he attended beauty school at Contemporary School of Beauty, in Syracuse, NY. Upon graduating from beauty school, Vincenzo worked in the beauty industry until 1990 when he opened his own salon in Armory Square for a very successful 8 years. He then decided his true calling was barbering and went back to Syracuse Hancock airport barbershop to work alongside his father. Upon his father’s retirement, Vincenzo moved on to a successful barber shop where he stayed for 15 years, honing his skills and acquiring a very loyal clientele. In 2014, he decided to make the move to open his own barbershop along with his partners Anthony Calangelo, Tony Gallo, and Nino Ambroggio, going back to the old school barbering his father had taught him.
