The Hoboken Man, Hoboken’s #1 barbershop opened its second location in Ridgewood

Ridgewood NJ, The Hoboken Man, Hoboken’s #1 barbershop opened its second location in Ridgewood, NJ on December 2 in coordination with Ridgewood’s ”Downtown for the Holiday’s Tree Lighting Ceremony.” The Ridgewood Man mirrors the services and ambiance of its predecessor and aims to give its clients a classic barbershop experience with all the services of a high-end salon.
Located at 66 East Ridgewood Avenue, The Ridgewood Man is the premier place to go for any man who wants to look his best.
“We are excited to open our second location,” said co-owner and Ridgewood resident, Dan Hood. “So many of our Hoboken clients are moving to Ridgewood that opening a second location simply made sense. As in Hoboken, we saw that Ridgewood men wanted an upscale place to get their hair cut- not the typical, female-centric salons that populate the area. We’re filling that void.”
The shop itself has a modern, masculine feel with richly stained wood panel walls, chrome accents, and historical tin ceiling. Flat panel high-definition televisions hang in optimal viewing areas around the barbershop, as do a collection of vintage Playboy magazine covers.
The Ridgewood Man offers clients everything from classic straight razor shaves with hot lather and precision haircuts, to spa manicures and pedicures, to anti-aging and deep cleansing facials and massages. Clients can choose individual services, or purchase memberships for unlimited haircuts.
“Once men see the benefits of professionally maintaining their appearance, they’re hooked,” said Hood. “We’re here to give them a premium experience every time they visit us.”

The Ridgewood Man owners include Dan Hood, who led the effort to open the new location; Steven Holm, a finance professional; Emily Gonce, a lobbyist; Erik Connaughton, a consultant; and Jennifer Connaughton, a high-end children’s clothing designer and owner of Ferd Kids. Dan and his wife, Dr. Cristina Maniu, an OBGYN physician at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, recently moved to Ridgewood from Hoboken, NJ.
“We understand and believe in our collective vision for both The Hoboken Man and The Ridgewood Man,” says Gonce. “The backbone of any business is highly skilled staff paired with intelligent, strategic, forward thinking management. We look forward to serving the Ridgewood community for years to come.”
