I'm a 3rd generation barber born in New Jersey who loves art, music, and style. I'm driven, ambitious, and very passionate about my craft. I started cutting hair as ateenager as a hobby, and I never stopped. I do have to thank my wife (Kalyn) for pushing me to go back to school and earn my barbers license, which I've had for nearly a decade.
It's the best feeling when I get to see the confidence boost, the smile, and the excitement from my clients when they look in the mirror after I'm done. This is one of the biggest reasons I love what I do but barbering to me is more than cutting hair. It's about the bond you build with your clients and co-workers over the years, eventually turning into not only friendships, but becoming family. I take a lot of pride in my work and being able to pass down what I've learned over the years is to me, to be a barber!
I love the long and rich history of barbering as well as where I see it going in the future, from the classic cuts to being a trendsetter. I'm always pushing and educating myslef to become better every day.
Giving back and supporting this great community here in Venice, as well as other small and local businesses is also very important to me.
It's funny to think that something like a haircut could completely change the way you see yourself and that's pretty amazing!

My name is Vinny Oliveri. I am 24 years old, originally from upstate NY and have now lived in Florida for a little over 10 years.
Aside from getting married to my beautiful wife Claire, becoming a barber 2 years ago was the best decision I had ever made for myself.
When I was in school I used to want to be an artist. Whether that was working for Disney or Nike, I just wanted to be in an industry where I could let my creative side thrive.
I love this industry so much because I get to do that every day. All of you keep me interested and challenged with every haircut.
Seeing the smile on someone’s face after they get a haircut is why we do this. The reason we become barbers is to change people lives. It’s not just a haircut appointment.
It’s a good conversation, a potential friendship built, and then a good haircut to top it off. I hope to give you all of those things when you sit with me.
