Bountiful local Johnny Cook is the founder of City Barbers. Cook attended “The Barber School” in Midvale and completed the program, becoming licensed as a barber in Utah. Afterward, he moved to London, England, to study advanced courses at the London School of Barbering.
“I was in London going to school and I was working weekends in some amazing barbershops. I owe a lot to the people I met there,” says Cook. “Those people are passionate about what they do and it was very inspirational. You see them working 75 hours a week because they love it. You can’t help but be influenced.“
Returning to Utah, Cook started City Barbers. This barber shop stands out in the Salt Lake community as one with certain unique qualities. “Our format is very different than any barbershop around. We are Salt Lake City’s only ‘full service’ barbershop,” says Cook. “We custom craft each haircut for every guest who visits City Barbers. We offer only three services, but we provide anything our guests would like.” The three services are the Men’s Classic Haircut, the Men’s Traditional Hot Towel Shave, and Hangover Treatment.
According to Cook, City Barbers attracts an interesting clientele. “Being located downtown, we get our fair share of men traveling from out of state on business. I would say, however, that our clients are those gentlemen looking for something different in their barbering experience that they have not found before,” he says. “I want their time at City Barbers to be something different. More importantly, I want them to experience something positive.”
