When the Guevara family realized the positive qualities of the Canyon Country community, they decided to become a part of it. Three months ago, Bernie and Maria Guevara and their son, Steve, sold their Bakersfield barber shop and two months later, they opened one here.
Golden Canyon Country Barber Shop is strategically located in the Vallarta shopping center near Paul’s Paint & Hardware on Soledad Canyon Road.
“We’re Hispanic and there’s a big community here, which is where we draw customers, but we want to serve everyone in the community,” said Steve Guevara, 28. “It’s a great location, and we’re new to the area. It’s nice here and it’s affordable.”
The barber shop offers haircuts, hot towel shaves, shampoo washes, and they cut hair for all ages – from kids to seniors.
“My dad is originally from Mission Hills and we moved to Bakersfield about 15 years ago,” Steve said. “Recently we decided to come back and start something new.”
There are 10 chairs at Golden Canyon Country Barber Shop, so the Guevaras plan to add hairstylists, since the space is sizable. Their plan is to meet other barbers in the area first.
“Everyone here was so friendly,” Steve said. “But if there’s anything we might need … if somebody’s overstaffed – networking helps.”
The shop is closed Mondays and open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m.- 7p.m., Sunday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
