A Cut Above Barber Shop was Established in 2006....

As told to me by his wife Florence, this building was originally a barber shop built for the late Eddie the Barber.

Eddie first learned to cut hair in the Navy on a Aircraft carrier during World War II.

 Then when he returned from the Navy he became an apprentice barbering here in New Jersey, and finally became licensed. Eddie worked for a few of the local Barbers in the area then decided to open and build his own shop. Happily cutting hair six days a week styles changed in the early 70's so he just opened on weekends and started to work for the

East Brunswick Board of Education.

The shop was built some time in late 50's after 45 years in hair cutting,

 Eddie retired and sold the building to two sisters in the wholesale balloon business.                        

In October 2006 Martina decided to open her own Barber Shop in this historic location.
