Our Story

Steeped in a rich tradition of Master Barbers and experienced cosmetologists, The Center Barber & Beauty Shop has always been a popular choice amongst local Santa Fe residents. Customers have valued and appreciated the quality of service given by the local master barbers and stylists of this proud establishment. Licensed for over 69 years, The Center Barber and Beauty Shop has consistently offered some of the best haircuts and services in Santa Fe to generations of customers. The barber shop started off in the downtown plaza and is currently located in the Cordova and Solana plazas where it still boasts the best haircuts and barbershop experience in town.  Started by Ramon Vigil and his wife Aurora in 1954, the tradition of exceptional haircutting has been passed on through the generations continuing with his son Gilbert Vigil and grandson Frank Vigil.  The Center Barber and Beauty Shop is still family owned and operated by Gilbert's son Jude, and daughter Velma.
