Featuring The Spot Barbershop – An interview with Fredis and Juan Carlos Perdomo, Lester Rivera, and Diana Hernandez
One of the most demanding trades when it comes to keeping with trends and cutting-edge innovations is the trade of the barber. Long held as the masters of the coif and debonair styling, barbers face the same challenges that any small business or artisan does when attempting to hang their own shingle up for business. Brothers Fredis and Juan Carlos Perdomo are no different in this regard except for the fact that they’ve made it and want to share their story with the world in the hope that others can achieve what they have, too. Breaking out in none other than red hot Miami, where the competition is almost as intense as the heat, the brothers founded The Spot Barbershop together with the idea of bringing something traditional, new, and completely unique to the south Florida scene.
“We originally opened in 2001 with a 5 chair barbershop. I have been a barber since the age of 12 years old, but I had no clue how to run a business. We learned as we went. We only had 5 barbers, 5 chairs; but it was right across the street from my old high school so I had some leverage there. It was amazing! Now, with over 25 shops you can find unique pieces of throughout… Cars that have been designed to be chairs, lamps that are foosball tables and many other creative elements throughout.”
