Now Open For Business – Millstone Township, NJ
By Abigail Urban
Looking for a fresh new haircut? Come meet your neighbor, Anthony Conoscenti – owner of Cono’s Cuts Barber Shop open for business specializing in men’s haircuts for all ages.
Anthony has had a passion for barbering since he was 13 years old and later cut hair in his own college dorm room. Graduating from Westchester University with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in psychology and marketing, Conoscenti originally planned to enter the corporate world for his future career. He spent three years in IT and mortgage sales in NY and NJ, enjoying the competitive atmosphere but also wishing to own his own business.
Conoscenti decided to return to his passion for barbering and focused on turning this side job into a full-time endeavor. He entered cosmetology school, receiving his Cosmetology license in the State of New Jersey.
He learned how to cut long cuts and perms, but noticed that there was no specific barbering program for short hair. He decided to tackle this issue, teaching his class how to fade and do multiple short haircuts so that future hairstylists could diversify and learn more than just long cuts.
Combining his business savvy skills with his interest in styling men’s short hair, he sought to open a barbershop that serves as a reliable hub in the community to get a new haircut. He says that his goal is to create a reputation of excellence, professionalism, traditional craftsmanship yet friendly atmosphere so his customers can say, “If I go here, I’m going to get a good quality cut, good service, conversation and spend time with neighbors.”
Already, he proudly notices that business has been great and that feedback on social media has been very positive.
“Cono Cuts has an atmosphere that’s traditional and modern, yet very family friendly,” customer Kristen Bayor says. “Anthony is personable, skilled, and gives an excellent haircut at a very reasonable price. He was very patient with my son and made him feel important. This was my son’s best haircut. We look forward to spreading the word about Cono’s Cuts.” Bayor also praised the new barbershop on Facebook, posting, “Thanks Cono’s Cuts for a great haircut. We will definitely be back.”
A regular cut at Cono’s Cuts is $20 and kid’s cuts -10 and under are $15. Hot shaves and steam shaves are $25. All first responders and military receive a $5 discount off any service; seniors 65+ also receive $5 off any service.
