According to this 2017 Forbes article, barbering is the fastest-growing profession in the U.S. with a rough growth estimation of 10% – on par with the number of licensed barbers in the past two years. Revenues for barbershops are expected to reach $867 million in 2018 and up to $910 million by 2020. A 2017 U.S. Market Research Report estimates that 152,284 people were employed by barbershops in 2017.

It’s a good time for barbers – especially those with specialized services as they are becoming more and more popular.

Many Diesel customers are 20 to 60 years old with a couple of years of college or a college degree, who care about their appearance and are willing to spend a little more to get a quality haircut.

Who We Are

Diesel Barbershops are the 21st Century versions of the corner barbershop. Customers enjoy services like the signature “Diesel Plus” (haircut, neck shave, shampoo, scalp massage, hot towel face treatment, and shoulder massage) and also watch sports on TV, play video games, and enjoy a local craft beer or soda if they wish. Diesel Barbershop gives customers a place to relax – and get an awesome haircut experience.

In short, it’s a place for customers who just want to be themselves.

That said, Diesel Barbershops are the antithesis of beauty salons that sometimes come with high drama and gossipy clients. Instead, they are an oasis for customers looking for a more masculine atmosphere where they’re free to talk sports, pop culture, movies, history or whatever their interests are with their barber or other customers. In fact, most customers will linger after their haircut to finish their beer or try to set the high score on Donkey Kong.
