Click on the images below to read the stories about Semion’s family.
The Kikirov family (pronounced Kee-Kir-Off) immigrated to the United States of America in 1999. Semion, Bella and Roman came from the war torn Former Soviet Union to find a better life and achieve the American dream. As fourth generation barbers, Semion and Bella began their careers in hairstyling in the Former Soviet Union. After moving to New York City, Semion worked in one of the biggest barbershops in the world, Astor Place, which consisted of 120 barbers from all over the world.
In 2001, the family moved to Denver, Colorado, where Semion became the #1 producer for Floyd’s Barbershop for 9 years straight! Roman and Bella also continued to work in hair cutting industry in Denver as well. These combined experiences gave them a different outlook on the hair cutting industry and specifically on how to improve inconsistent quality, long waits, unsatisfactory working conditions, and poor customer service.
In 2011, Semion decided to go out on his own and create Semion – A Barbershop for all. Based on his experiences in the FSU, NYC and Denver, Semion handpicked the best parts of his experiences to create this new shop. This first store is dedicated to the loving memory of our sister, Bella, who passed away in 2011. We invite all people to come and visit us and see what great hair cutting experience can do for you.
