Meet The Team
One of the founders of Well Kept, Luis got into barbering when he was 14 years old. He started cutting his own hair in 2004, and soon made the transition to friends and family. In 2008, he received his apprentice license and began working under the tutelage of a childhood barber in his hometown of Jackson Heights, Queens. After realizing he could offer more than what he saw in the market, he and his trusted partner opened Well Kept in 2018. His interests outside of barbering include listening to music, watching sports, and keeping fit. His family serves as his motivation.
Ruben realized he wanted to become a barber when he was 13 years old. He dropped out of college where he was studying architecture to pursue his dream of opening a barbershop. In 2015, he met Luis on social media. After putting a fair amount of dedication, hard work, and passion put into the process, they opened the doors of Well Kept. Ruben likes listening to and dancing to classical salsa music. Knowing that he can change people’s lives by simply giving them great haircuts is what motivates him the most.
With both his parents working as barbers, Jose has been associated with this field for a long time. He has been a licensed master barber for over a decade now. He started using clippers when he was 11 years old and became a professional licensed barber at the age of 18. Jose is passionate about making people look and feel good, and he thinks that his work as a barber gives him easy means to do both. His goal is to travel, while educating and motivating other young aspiring barbers to be great and love the industry as much as he does.
Alex was first introduced to the barber industry through a family owned barbershop. He started cutting professionally four years ago. After studying criminal justice in college for a year, he decided he wanted to learn how to cut hair. He fell in love with the process quickly. Alex truly enjoys getting to know new people every day and helping them find the style that best suits their hair. Aside from barbering, he is also interested in art, music, and sports.
Meet Romelo, the most energetic and the liveliest barber you will ever know. The barbershop scene has always called to him, even at a very young age. His father owned two shops in Astoria ‘I Got Next’ and ‘Off Top Barbershop’. His passion for barbering started during his teen years as a way to acquire extra money. He gave line ups in high school. What started as a side hustle ended up becoming his full time career as he eventually made the decision to attend a barbering school. He harnessed the styles and concepts that he now proudly utilizes in each haircut he gives. Ultimately falling in love with the craft he dedicates himself to give each client; the style of haircut, and the fancy of each individual. Continuously ensuring a form of never ending growth. You’ll frequently see him rocking his favorite Anime gear and discussing Black Clover and his collection of Yu-Gi-oh cards.
What Clients Say
What a gem in the neighborhood, Lu and Ruben are as professional as they are personable. I’m grateful to have found a place that’s warm, welcoming and that you see the embodiment of hard work.
The service to top notch and the experience was great. I’ve had the same barber for almost 20 years. This was a great change of pace for me. The warm atmosphere, the music, just the overall vibe is cool. I’ll definitely continue to go here.
I’ve had the privilege of getting my haircut from Ruben for over 10 years now and to finally have his own shop should just show why his craft is above and beyond. Whether you come in for full service or just a shape-up he takes care of you and delivers the perfect haircut. When it comes to his staff they are just as great, between his co-owner Lu and other barbers such as Alanna, Jose and the newest barber Alex they all make sure to take care of their clients to greatest extent.
New barbershop on 32nd St between 30th and 31st Aves. Been there twice now and love it. Place is set up nicely. Have visited Luis both times and it is a good time hanging out there and really pleased with the results. He knew exactly what I wanted with little description and couldn’t be happier. Check it out like I did!
It can be tough to find a barbershop with barbers that actually care about their clients, but that is not the case with Well Kept.
The attention to detail that goes into every haircut is unbelievable. Do yourself a favor and ditch your local barber that spends 15 minutes on your cut. Give Well Kept a try and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
I’ve had my hair cut in many countries but I have never received so many compliments on my haircut after visiting here… true masters of the trade
If you’re willing to splurge on a haircut in Astoria, this place is perfect
After searching for a regular barber in Astoria for the better part of a year, I found and set up an appointment at Well Kept with Lou. The stakes were high, as I have long hair and was preparing for an important interview, and Lou came through with flying colors. The haircut and hot towel shave were both excellent, didn’t take too long, and were accompanied by great conversation in a setting that made me feel right at home. I can’t recommend this place enough. No doubt worth the price.
Best Shop In Astoria
Well Kept is a beautiful shop that is always well maintained, clean and has a great atmosphere. I started going there after seeing their ads on Instagram and I don’t think I’ll ever to go to another barber shop in Astoria. Alex cuts my hair and his attention to details is unmatched. Awesome place that I highly recommend.
The Way It Should be
I’ve lived in the neighborhood for 5 years and have been to about 6 barbershops. Some good cuts and some not so good. I’m getting married in a couple of months so decided that I need to find a spot that would do a good job and have me looking my best come the big day. José had the honor – or pressure – of hooking me up. The hair cut and beard trim was a 12/10 and I won’t go anywhere else. The crew there is great and the shop is perfect. They did an awesome job.
First off I must say this place has such a good feeling to it when u walk in the door. It’s the only split level barber shop I’ve ever seen. The staff is amazing Ruben my personal barber of choice is extremely professional. The rest of staff from what I can see and hear while I’m there share the same professionalism. I came in for my usual weekly cut and As usual my haircut came out as close to perfect as humanly possible. I highly recommend if looking for a new barber to get a hair cut here
