press testimony

Remember the old-time barber shop that dad took you to when you were a kid? Every man remembers his first trip to the barber with his dad or grandpa. The red and white pole outside, the big leather chairs, and maybe even a phone book to sit on...

Capistrano Barbershop, the Old-Fashioned Barber Shop, is owned and operated by Faraj Capistrano, a Master Barber from Nazareth, providing old world flavor and service of days gone by. We provide traditional and short hair cuts as well as contemporary men's hairstyles. You get the nostalgia of yesteryear in a classy, nostalgic setting full of interesting men and great conversation.

We are proud to offer this classic barbershop approach to the Annapolis community. Gentlemen, come in and lose yourself in a genuinely old-fashioned barber shop experience. You will leave looking and feeling manlier than you have in years!

We had a great time at Fado Irish Pub supporting the
St. Baldrick's Fundraiser last year. We'll be there again on March 10th for this year's fundraiser!

Faraj Capistrano was born in Nazareth and has been a Barber since he was 18. His father is from Sicily and his mother is from Lebanon. Faraj speaks five languages: English, Hebrew, Arabic, Moroccan and Conversational Spanish. He has lived in the United States for 25 years and has been cutting hair the entire time. Faraj's love of boating brought him to Annapolis, where he is establishing his roots with his wife and 6-year-old son, Enzo.

Sam has been a Barber for over 10 years, cuts all hair types and gives a great straight edge shave.

Dave, a Maryland Native, has over 8 years of experience and a wealth of knowledge about the area.

Our newest addition, but the most seasoned... don't forget Gerard - He has so many years of experience we don't count anymore.

Capistrano Barbershop is located in the heart of Downtown Annapolis on Maryland Avenue near the intersection of Prince George Street. It is an appropriately picturesque setting for delivering old-fashioned barber services to the Annapolis community. There is ample metered parking available near the barbershop, or you can choose to park in one of the nearby garages.
