To Our Very Important Guests,
Eric Sowa and the C’zar Male team has experienced tremendous growth since CM’s creation in 2018. We are incredibly proud of what we created & nurtured together inside the C’zar Salon Spa Naperville walls. Now, it’s time for the big news. Come mid-August 2022, C’zar Salon Naperville will be discontinuing the C’zar Male Barber Lounge experience on our 2nd floor. Don’t panic! Simply put, Eric and the rest of CM’s barber team will be moving on to what will be known as Barber Haus, located a flew blocks away in our lovely Downtown.
In partnership with our longtime Hair Artist and Barber Eric Sowa, we opened C’zar Male Barber Lounge just three years ago—a quaint 2-chair shop on our salon’s 2nd floor. Ironically, Eric was an in-demand hairstylist who specialized in women’s blonding for many years. Eventually he fell in love with the world of barbering, and together we carved out a small space dedicated to men’s grooming. What began as a passion project quickly morphed into a brilliant community & culture all its own. That community, and its waitlist, has grown plenty since then. We are extremely proud of where it stands today, but it’s time to let a dreamer live out their dream. On August 15th (they hope), C’zar Male barbers will transition to Barber Haus—an entirely new business venture owned and operated by Eric Sowa. Debbie, Evonne, and the C’zar Management team will no longer be involved in daily operations, but we know you’re in good hands.
You will find barbers Eric, Jonathan, Kaylee, and more at their expanded 4-chair space at 232 South Washington Street in Downtown Naperville. If you have an appointment with any of our C’zar Male Barber Lounge staff on August 15th (estimated) and beyond, it will take place at their new home. Until then, it’s business as usual! We’re super excited to share the Naperville community with Barber Haus, as we share the same good roots. We know you have plenty of questions, so please refer to our FAQ below for more information.
With sincere gratitude,
Debbie, Evonne, & the C’zar Crew
Your barbers at C’zar Male are moving to a larger space in Downtown Naperville. Eric Sowa, our lead Barber and current C’zar Male partner, will be starting a new business venture called Barber Haus, an upscale barbershop catered to non-gender-specific haircutting and grooming services.
