The original Carlo’s Barbership has been a landmark in Garfield Heights, Ohio since 1969. It all began with founder, Carlo Sarti Sr., an Italian immigrant who had a dream to one day have his own barbershop. In 1969, Carlo Sr. opened the doors to the original Carlo’s Barbershop on Warner Road in Cleveland, Ohio. Carlo Sr.’s hard work, quality haircuts, and inviting, friendly atmosphere were a definite recipe for success. After spending a few years in the shopping plaza on Warner Road, Carlo Sr. came across a great opportunity. Jaworski’s Meat Market and Candy Shop, located just down the street from the shop, was put up for sale. Carlo Sr. seized the opportunity to buy the building. Thus, the shop was moved to Turney Road in Garfield Heights, where it still remains. Having used all of his savings to buy the shop, he did not account for the expenses needed to remodel and convert it into a barbershop. With the help of family, friends, and customers in the construction trades, the once meat market and candy shop was converted to Carlo’s Barbershop. Carlo Sr.’s love for the business inspired his son, Carlo Jr., to also enter the trade, and the family does not end there. Carlo Jr. later convinced his brother-in-law Roberto Gangale, to join the cutting crew.
After almost a decade working under Carlo Sr. at the original Carlo’s Barbershop, Carlo Jr. and Roberto decided it was time for Carlo’s Barbershop to also have a presence on the south side of Cleveland. Many of the original Carlo’s Barbershop customers had moved to the south side, the area that both Carlo Jr. and Roberto grew up in. Carlo Jr. and Roberto began to search for the perfect location for Carlo’s Barbershop II. Amidst their search, they were very fortunate to find an available space that was once one of the most popular barbershops in Broadview Heights, Ohio. The space at 8138 Broadview Road was once Pat’s Barbershop, owned and run by the late Pat Dimassa, After purchasing the business, Carlo Jr. and Roberto had much work ahead of them. Since the shop had been closed for several years, it took hard work and extreme dedication to remodel the shop. On October 4th, 2005, the doors of Carlo’s Barbershop II were opened. Carlo Jr., Roberto, and newly recruited family friend Bill Wise were eager and excited to open a new shop in an area that was in great need of one. Carlo Jr. and Roberto were both ready and willing to split their time between working at the original Carlo’s Barbershop and Carlo’s Barbershop II. Carlo’s Barbershop II has received an overwhelming welcome from the community for which they are very appreciative, and are always excited to meet new customers every day.
The expansion continued when Carlo’s Barbershop added a third location at 6574 Brecksville Road in Independence. This shop opened in 2012 and is operated by Nick Barile and Carlo Jr.
Daily conversation at every Carlo’s Barbershop often includes local happenings, world events, sports, and of course, the latest jokes. Men and children of all ages love visiting this traditional shop. Of course, mothers are always welcome to bring in their children, too.
The man who started it all 50 years ago, my father was born in Italy and his family moved to the USA in 1955. They struggled, so my father developed his work ethic at an early age. He is 72 years old now and in great shape! He is still the hardest worker I know. He is a machine! All of us at Carlo’s have been privileged to work and learn from him. He is a true inspiration! He has taught us all some great life lessons. He can still give one of the best tapered square back’s in the country. He is truly a master barber! Along with barbering, he enjoys his grandchildren, soccer, and garage sales! He is the original American picker!
He is a natural born barber and has been cutting now for over 20 years! He has carried on the legacy and dedicated his career to make an environment where men and their families feel comfortable. His positive, upbeat personality and eye for detail has gained him quite the reputation in the Cleveland area. If there was a Guinness record for nicest man alive or walking encyclopedia, this professional barber would own it. You will leave Carlo‘s chair satisfied and with an interesting story to share with the world, every time.

Bill has been entertaining our shop since he graduated from barber college in 2004. He is a “rockstar”! There is not a haircut he cannot do. He is always upbeat and has the best stories!
