Upper Cuts is a privately held Limited Liability Corporation. The business was founded in 2013. The first location, Upper Cuts Barber Shop, opened in Alexandria, Virginia in March 2014.
Based upon the success of the first location, Upper Cuts was approached about opening a new location in Downtown Washington, DC. Shortly thereafter, Upper Cuts Gentlemen's Grooming Place was created as an upscale luxurious grooming center specializing in men's hair care and personal grooming services. Upper Cuts Gentlemen's Grooming Place opened in January 2016.
Upper Cuts was one of several companies vying for a storefront in the prestigious waterfront district of National Harbor. After an arduous selection process, Upper Cuts successfully secured the highly sought after location with two new businesses -- Upper Cuts Gentlemen's Grooming Place and Upper Cuts Salon & Spa, both of which opened in May 2016.
