THE JOURNEY OF THE MODERN BARBER SHOP

In 2014, FOX & ASH BARBER SHOP set out to bring quality men’s grooming to the Midwest.  Founded by barber, Caleb Porter; Fox & Ash became a lifestyle brand with aspirations of becoming a household name.  Fox & Ash focuses on being a multicultural shop, only giving quality services at the request of the customer.  Fox & Ash specializes in haircuts of all hair types, straight razor shaves, hot towel services, and facial massages.  Along with a quality service, you’ll only find quality products made specifically for men.  Their mission is simple, provide a quality and honest service and experience.  Today Fox & Ash is co-owned by Caleb Porter and Andrew Schwartz and has grown to a four chair barbershop and two chair studio, located in downtown McPherson, Kansas. This location is a historic barbering landmark. Since the late 1800’s it has never been anything other than a barbershop and it continues to operate and carry out the tradition of barbering. F&A has also opened a second location, located at the Revolutsia ICT in Wichita, Kansas. 

ALL ARE WELCOME, ALWAYS.

FOUNDER | BARBER

Barbering started for Caleb when he was 14 years old. "I was very much influenced by art and different men's styles when I started high school. For me, barbering was always looked at as an art." Caleb attended 360 BARBER COLLEGE, located in Wichita, KS. After graduating he worked under his childhood barbers Vail Henningsen and Dwyane Herrs, at Headquarters Hair Care, in McPherson, KS. He later opened up the first of three different FOX & ASH locations a few months before his 21st birthday. 

FOX & ASH

F&A opened it's doors on June 5th, 2014. With less than 200 square feet this shop was able to house two barber chairs and three waiting area chairs. "We grew fast and needed a bigger space to house customers comfortably."  

January 27th, 2015 FOX & ASH tripled in size when moving to location number two in downtown McPherson. This was a three chair shop that went through an entire rebrand and build. The store front had six large windows that filled the space with natural light and a rustic wood wall that displayed a lit up fox at night. "We were able to add amenities like a pool table, two TV's, and a large retail space for our customers. This just wasn't possible before the move, due to lack of space. I feel this second shop was an essential stage for our growth."

 

In November 5th, 2015 FOX & ASH got an opportunity that couldn't be passed up. With the purchase and complete renovation of a barber landmark in McPherson, Fox & Ash took over Family Barber. This space has been occupied by barbers since it was purchased by the state of Kansas in 1887. F&A can now houses four barbers, three TV's, large retail space, two waiting areas, and large product shelf. "We are closer to the heart of downtown in a unique space. It truly is an honor to carry on the barbering tradition in this particular space, that has been going on since 1887. The opportunity to own and call a space home was something we couldn't pass up."
