A new barber shop will be opening in the neighborhood this weekend.
Andy’s Styles, the name of the new shop, is set to officially open at 83-11 37th Ave. on Dec. 8, and has been operating with soft opening hours in recent days.
The shop is run by Andres Cielo, a Jackson Heights resident and first-time business owner with over a decade of experience working in barber shops.
Cielo has secured a five year lease, and said he looks forward to owning a business in the area.
“When you first open, for any business, it’s not easy,” Cielo said. “I want my business to grow, to open more barber shops. There are a lot of people around here, so I wanted to give it a try.”
Among the barber shops Cielo previously worked for is Headz Ain’t Ready, just a little over a block away on 37th Avenue.
Andy’s Styles offers all barber services including shape-ups, haircuts, washes, shaves, and more. Hours of operation, which are currently in effect, are Monday through Sunday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
“Anyone that comes in here, ladies, children, men, everybody—I want to try to have them leaving feeling happy,” Cielo said. “That is my dream.”
Just what we need in Astoria: ANOTHER barber shop….
It’s opening in Jackson Heights… not Astoria
Thomas should look at a map
Mr. Buckley 83rd street and 37th Avenue is far from Astoria. I think any legitamit business opening in any neighborhood is a blessing because it creates jobs and tax revenue.
I am glad to see a new business opening on 37th ave. Good luck to you Mr. Cielo may you have man years in business. If you could survive years at Heads ain’t Ready dealing with Viejo and especially Vieja, you can do anything. Oh and thanks for bringing jobs to this town.
