Roosters Men’s Grooming Center, the national chain of barbershops for men and boys, opened this week at Bethesda Row.
Montgomery County residents Kevin and Karen Clark are the franchise owners and in a press release vowed to bring back “the classic American barbershop experience.” The chain of about 80 locations offers leather barber chairs, haircuts, hot towel shaves, deep cleansing facial treatments, hair coloring and grooming products.
The Bethesda location (7135 Arlington Rd.) was built out between Lebanese Taverna and the main entrance to the Upstairs at Bethesda Row apartments. The store has six barber stations “designed for today’s modern male” to “provide the ultimate men’s grooming experience.”
Kevin Clark didn’t return interview requests.
The chain was founded by barber Joe Grondin in 1999 in Michigan. The Bethesda location will hold an official ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration on July 23 with the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce.
Roosters’ hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
