The only “Tonsorial Parlor” in town, C. Foy and his friendly staff offer personal grooming services for men, women, and children. As I walked into this elegant “Barber Studio”, I was taken aback by the upscale and sophisticated furnishings.
I enjoyed a nice conversation with C. Foy and found my visit to be very educational and interesting by learning about the history and services of the tonsorial business. C. Foy’s family has been in the business for generations.
This unique shop is also the first “Tonsorial Parlor” in New Bern and “C. Foy Tonsorial Parlor is the first of its kind Southeast. New Bern and Eastern North Carolina’s newest landmark attraction is a secluded retreat offering upscale and diverse services” – quote taken from C. Foy’s brochure.
Their “Superb Tonsorial Services Include:
– Superior Hair Cutting/Grooming
– Hot Towel Razor Shaves
– Shoe Shine
– Manicure and Pedicure
– Hair and Skin Consultations and Products
– Ladies Razor Eyebrow Arching
– Face, Neck, and Scalp Massaging”
The “Airplane” barber chair is a favorite for children and once they finish being groomed, they are awarded a special flying certificate and if they’re lucky, they’ll receive their “flying wings”!
Don’t forget to ask for “C. Foy’s famous New York Mint Julep Cocktail Facial”!
They even offer handicap valet parking for patrons with appointments, military and senior specials, and gift certificates. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are preferred.
This one of a kind shop is a must see in my opinion! Valentine’s Day is approaching; why not pamper your loved one with one of their skillful and distinctive services?
Please visit C. Foy Tonsorial Parlor located in the Kress Building, 309 Middle Street, New Bern, 252-636-2369.
