Did You Know There Is Now A Black-Owned Barbershop In Atlanta’s Airport?

After several setbacks, Roosevelt Gilbert has opened Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport’s first barbershop and salon. Did we mention it’s also Black-Owned?

The Barber Shop Atlanta recently opened its doors after months of complicated construction. It is located in the domestic terminal near TGI Fridays. There is also a location at North Dekalb Mall.

“I’m just glad to be open,” Gilbert said to the AJC. “We had to go through a lot.”

The shop is open daily from 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. You can get services such as men’s cuts, women’s cuts, as well as an executive facial.

The airport has been in talks to bring a salon or barbershop into its terminals since 2009. The original tenant didn’t work out and they began searching for someone to fill the contract in 2013. After several rounds of contracting, Gilbert’s shop was chosen to move in.

Be sure to show them some love if you are flying through Atlanta!
