Comparing Skills: Barber Richard Mendoza of Filthy Rich Barbershop and Phylicia Goins of She’s The Barber

Like maestros in the world of music, these two tremendously skilled barbers, Rich the Barber and She’s the Barber have been successful at orchestrating their way through social media.  Rich the Barber, who has been in business since 2006, commands an Instagram following of around 17,000 and She’s the Barber which was founded in 2014,  is in pursuit to follow along the trail that Rich has blazed.

About Rich the Barber: Sources at the New York Post tell us that, “Richard Mendoza was celebrating the grand opening of his own shop in Queens in 2006 when a moment of inspiration struck.

Mendoza expertly carved the NYC skyline into the back of an adventurous client’s head with the end of his razor. Afterward, he posted photos of his creation on the biggest social media site of the time, Myspace. The photos were a hit — earning Mendoza comments and friend requests from fans around the world.

Thanks to his @richthebarber Instagram account — which has more than 17,000 followers — he’s drawn a global roster of clients to his modest shop, which sits under the elevated 7 train platform.”


About She’s the Barber:  She’s the Barber has quickly become popular and damn near a household name in the Washington D.C. area. The word is spreading all along the east coast about this beautiful model type,  female barber with skills like that of Rich the Barber.
