Black Diamond Barber Shop on NE Glisan

Five months ago, Alain Martinez Castellanos opened Black Diamond Barber Shop at 9047 NE Glisan Street after ten years of cutting hair in other US shops. Castellanos’s passion for his craft started at age 14 under the instruction of his grandfather and uncle in Cuba. This family profession and pride in work is the foundation of the barbershop, showing in the multitude of five-star reviews.

Castellanos chose this three-chair storefront because of its location close to his home and its position along a major road near two freeways. The shop specializes in taper fades, razor fades, and braids, with hair coloring services coming soon. Black Diamond is a classic barbershop that can handle the full range of hair types, offering a clean cut with sharp lines. Customers span all ages and styles, supporting basic trims to intricate designs.

Castellanos brings a passion for his work uniquely found in those who have immersed themselves in a professional field. The company’s Instagram account [@black_diamond_barber_shop] and online booking site feature images of some common cuts and services. They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome.
