"Haircuts and whatnot"

Since Daniel Breen officially took over the former Sims barbershop at 40 Caroline St. this fall, the place has undergone some changes from the inside out. There’s fresh paint and artwork on the walls and groovy background music, and an overall hip vibe pervades the tiny two-chair salon.

Oh yeah, and clients there are offered a complimentary Pabst Blue Ribbon upon entering. What could go better with a hot shave than a cold beer?

Most noticeably new, though, is the addition of stylist and colorist Jenn Kim, otherwise known as an “appearance enhancer.”

Kim, 31, joined the team at Swagger last month, bringing a bunch of her female clients from a former location in Queensbury with her. She holds multiple licenses to do both women’s and men’s hair, while Breen sticks to men’s-only services like shaves and cuts. The salon also offers waxing.

A Redken devotee, Kim specializes in coloring using that brand of high-end protein-based hair care products, which are now sold at Swagger, naturally. She also takes continuing education classes online to keep her Redken skills up to date.

“Sometimes when people don’t feel good on the inside and they look good on the outside it can enhance the way they feel,” she said.

Call Kim at (419) 494-9791 or Breen at 260-2112 for appointments.
