Celebrating its one-year anniversary, Apollo’s Barbershop of Santa Clarita is holding a party Nov. 8 from 5-9 p.m.

Serving complimentary food from La Toscana and free drinks, the business will also host music, and raffle drawings for barbershop, spa and tattoo services and a man’s watch. Tickets for the drawings are $10.

Salon owner Garo Papazian described the salon as a place where men can go to be pampered.

Offering old-fashioned straight-razor cuts, clean shaves and hair trims, the upscale salon for men also offers massages, skincare facials, manicures and more.

A local resident, Papazian has been a licensed real estate agent since 1977.  But the salon owner has also been a licensed barber since 1969. He said it has always been his passion and dream to open a high-end men’s salon.

Willing to cut friends’ hair, Papazian said he’d have seven to eight guys lined up in his garage for haircuts. He realized his dream, opening such a salon in 2010.

For November, Apollo’s is participating in “Movember,” a national mustache-growing campaign to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, in particular, prostate cancer.

Men registering at for the monthlong awareness campaign, grow their mustaches and have them maintained by local salons.

Apollo’s Barbershop is offering free shaves on Nov. 1 for individuals who sign up for the charity.

Apollo’s Barbershop is located at 25860 Tournament Road, Valencia next to La Toscana and Mulligan’s restaurants. Call Apollo’s at (661) 254-2891 or Garo Papazian at (661) 209-1300 to purchase raffle tickets.
