Our determination and vision are to challenge the increasingly robotic hair industry and transform it into a profession full of purpose.

Although each individual is unique in terms of their background and experiences, one must remember that one person’s freedom ends where another’s freedom begins. In other words: respect, professionalism, patience, understanding, and courtesy are the essential elements of Semion Barbershop. Are you tired of being promised a drama-free environment only to see your expectations unmet? At Semion, we don’t promise a drama-free environment. We only promise that all issues will be handled with respect and fairness. We believe in SIMPLICITY.

You may have noticed that Semion Barbershop is not called “Semion’s Barbershop.” Our name is not an accident. We do not believe that Semion Barbershop is the possession of one individual or even a small group of individuals. Rather, this concept is the product of the ideas and hard work of many people. Furthermore, it is an evolving concept that recognizes and adapts to new trends by listening to those inside and outside of the organization.

Have you ever wanted to just rent a booth because you were tired of politics, only to discover that it did not quite work because the rent was too high or there was not enough client traffic? At Semion, what we offer is the closest you’ll find to the freedom a booth renter seeks without the hassle of buying products, booking your customers, making a schedule, paying your own taxes, credit card fees, rent, advertising, and the millions of other things that prevent you from doing what you do best helping customers look and feel their best.

Your method of compensation should be fairly straightforward, yet in our industry, this question is often shrouded in mystery.

It is not uncommon to see advertisements promising “$12 per hour”, only to find the phrase “including tips” hidden in the fine print. A more honest description would promise “$8 per hour plus tips,” because tips of any amount are never guaranteed in our business.

That’s why at Semion we decided to keep things simple: you can choose to be compensated hourly, on commission, or through a combination of the two. Some employees prefer hourly compensation so they know exactly what they’ll be paid regardless of how many clients they see. Other employees prefer to be compensated on commission because if they see 4 clients in an hour, they want to be paid more than if they saw just 1.

In our experience with other establishments, we’ve found that sometimes a commission goal is too far out of reach, or there are so many people scheduled that there’s no way for employees to reach the goal. We researched this problem extensively and developed an amazing formula to address these issues. We set easily achievable commission goals so every team member has a reasonable chance to receive their commission.

Additionally, commission compensation is not about how much percentage you get paid but about how much money you receive from the haircut per hour. We pay our bills with dollars, not percentages. You might get paid 50% from $15 haircut at Salon X which is $7.50 per haircut or 38% from a $29 haircut at Semion which is $11.02 per haircut. So even though option 2 offers lower percentage than option 1 but you keep more money with option 2 than option 1. The final question about the commission is how many haircuts can you do in an hour? Sometimes the service might be 45 minutes and worth $60 or you can do three haircuts worth $75.

Health Insurance is an important aspect of our life. We provide group plans that include medical, dental, and vision. In addition, we contribute up to 50% of the plan’s cost.

The days of compensation mystery are in the past.


We don’t offer flying unicorns. We offer a clear path to your next career opportunity!

I barely ever give 5 stars but when a girl gives me a taper better than any other barber in Denver it says something… Semion teaches his girls right that’s for sure. Need a fade or taper no problem. Weekly visits all day…

Jose B.

I brought my son, who just turned 7 months, in for his very first haircut last night, and we will be bringing him back for future haircuts. I was a little skeptical about bringing him here instead of a “kids” haircut place since he is so young. But my husband has been going to Semion since before he opened his own place so when I mentioned that this popped up when I did a search of places to get kids haircuts on Yelp, my husband decided that we were going here.

Semion was excited to be doing the first haircut and really knew how to deal with such a little kid. My son sat on his Daddy’s lap, and Semion was able to give him a great haircut even though he didn’t keep his head still for very long. He was also fine with the fact that I was taking a ton of pictures the whole time. It was a great experience.
