Old Pine Barbershop Story
Old Pine Barbershop started in 2018 by Sarah Connolly. Located in the North End of Halifax just off Agricola.
I’m Sarah Connolly the owner and barber at Old Pine Barbershop. I attended the Hair Design Centre in Halifax in 2014, graduating with high honours. Knowing that barbering was my preferred career choice I contacted the owner of a local barber shop that was on the rise.
After apprenticing there during the last few months at hair school, I was hired as a full time barber. Over the next 3.5 years I perfected my skills as a barber. I also trained new barbers in the art of shaving and haircuts. Even assisting with training for Wahl and teaching classes in men’s hair around the Maritimes.
Unsure of what I wanted to do in life and my career I briefly left the barbershop. Working retail in the hair industry. During this time an opportunity came up for me to open a barber shop of my own. Old Pine Barber Shop Halifax came into existence May of 2018.
Originally Old Pine was in a small space shared with another barber under their own business name. From day one, the support that Sarah and Old Pine Barbershop have received has been incredible and the shop only continues to grow.
In February of 2019 it came time to expand in order to accommodate the growing business. That’s when the shop moved to it’s current location 5687 West Street. In a building shared with numerous entrepreneurs and creatives. Allowing myself and Old Pine Barbershop to continue to grow.
