From runway looks to contemporary street trends, the stylists at Spesh Salon & Barbershop can create any look you’re after. The menu is based on the length of your hair {short, mid-length, and long} so that people of all genders and identities can get the style and look they want. Plus, virtual consultations are now possible, so if you’re looking for a change but not ready to hit up the salon just yet, meet with a stylist over video to discuss your goals.

The Spesh Philosophy

Spesh was opened in 2017 by stylist + barber Steven Torres, but many of the stylists at Spesh have been studying and working with hair for over 15 years, including Steven.

“I started out in the hair industry because I wanted to give back. I truly enjoy helping people feel good about themselves. There is no other feeling like getting a good haircut. You find yourself walking taller and smiling brighter,” Steven told us.

He created Spesh with the goal of having a salon and barbershop come together as one to serve multiple types of clientele. The salon hosts a broad range of continuing education classes that touch on various lengths and styles to keep the team up-to-date and in the know with current techniques.

The services were created to make it possible for both men and women to get the style they want, regardless of gender. Kids services are also available, as well as updos, braids, and even bridal hair. Clients can also opt for color and treatment services such as grey blending, single process, hair curl relaxer, and keratin treatment. If you’re looking for highlights, corrective coloring or balayage, you’ll need to have a consultation before your appointment so the stylist you work with can be fully prepared to meet your needs once you begin.

COVID-19 Safety

Spesh has implemented mandatory temperature checks for staff and clients and has also eliminated the indoor waiting area. {You’re welcome to wait outside though.} The team has also created a COVID-19 questionnaire for all clients to fill out when booking an appointment to. Clients can utilize the complimentary hand sanitizers throughout the salon for their comfort and added safety, as well. Spesh also took the time to mark designated standing areas to promote social distancing so that you can comfortably be in the salon without worry. Staff will be disinfecting all tools and their workspace between appointments for an added precaution.
