I moved to Los Angeles shortly after graduating from high school in 1981 with the single objective of becoming a rock star. I began training as a professional hairstylist under the supervision of my cousin, famed Beverly Hills hairstylist Allen Edwards (Julianne Moore, Renee Zellweger, Laura Flynn Boyle, Donna Mills, Raquel Welch). With steadfast ambition to pursue my musical endeavors, I left the salon some six months later. Today, after four decades and a rewarding 25-year career as an educator, writer and father of five, I have returned to the timeless art of classic gentleman's barbering. Following a six-month apprenticeship under Master barber Sam Aydani of Benoah Barbers in The Hague, I created THE NIGHT BARBER concept, a unique barbering experience offering exclusive evening and late night hours catering to 9-to-5ers, students and business travelers. From Benoah Barbers on The Hague’s emblematic Noordeinde street in the heart of the Royal Shopping Quarter, the Night Barber popped up in the epicenter of The Hague’s vibrant Hofkwartier nightlife district on the Oude Molstraat during the summer of 2018. In September 2018, the Night Barber set up shop at Domo Eclectica at Annastraat 11, an extraordinary gallery space featuring an eclectic assortment of the finest handmade, homemade and antique wares created by artisans from all corners of the world. From March 1st 2019, The Night Barber set up shop at the newly established Rahula Hair & Lifestyle concept located in the heart of The Hague at Spui 263, providing the ultimate gentleman’s barbering experience featuring classic haircuts, a wonderfully luxurious lemon, eucalyptus, steam and oil straight razor shave and meticulous beard maintenance for facial hair of any style.
Sjoer began his barbering adventure at The Old School Barber Academy of the legendary Schorem barbershop in Rotterdam. A passionate and skilled craftsman, Sjoer views cutting and styling hair as a chance to make a difference in people’s lives knowing that a great haircut can make all the difference in someone's confidence and how they are viewed by others. Sjoer takes the greatest pride in finding each and every gentleman the best fitting cut for their personal style and face, and help them figure out what is the overall most complimentary look for them.
Located in The Hague's vibrant city center just steps away from the town hall, The Night Barber is Den Haag's first and only after-hours barbershop, providing a full range of barbering services. Located in the Rahula Lifestyle concept store, you will be treated to an unforgettably luxurious barbershop experience by American barber Richard Morris. Night Barber service is available every night from 7 p.m. until midnight and on the first and last Sunday of the month from noon until 5 p.m.
