Experience an old-style Barber at Disneyland ParisPublished: November 30, 2017 / Last Updated: January 30, 2018 / By: Arvid Bux
This November, one of the most famous residents on Main Street, U.S.A. is opening the doors of his shop. Welcome to Dapper Dan’s Hair Cuts, a classic barber shop on Main Street, U.S.A.
Dapper Dan’s Hair Cuts is a barber shop on a little street off Main Street, U.S.A. where Domenico not only offers guests his hairdressing/barber expertise, but also a trip back in time.
Domenico has loved the profession since he was a child in Sicily, where he gave his first shave at the age of 14 in a barber shop where he loved to spend every afternoon. For almost ten years now he has been putting his expertise to work to give our guests a unique experience: an old-style shave in a unique setting.
His salon is packed with reminders of the old days, newspapers, calendars, tools and old furniture, bringing back memories of the way of life in the 1900s. The oldest item in the shop is the barber’s chair, which dates back to 1845 and was bargain-hunted in Chicago by Imagineers.
Our barber puts customers through all the rituals, making sure to soften the skin with a hot towel, be precise in his movements and apply an after-shave lotion. It’s a treatment that attracts guests, some of whom have become regulars, as more than 25% of Dapper Dan’s Hair Cuts’ customers are Annual Pass holders. “One of my Belgian customers told me that he had purchased an Annual Pass so that he could pay me a regular visit. I was very flattered!” said Domenico.
