Diesel Barbershop opened April 26 at CityLine. The business, located at 1150 State St., Ste. 170, Richardson, is described as “part barbershop, part salon, part old school record store, part mechanics garage and part vintage arcade,” according to a news release. The local franchise is owned by brothers Spencer and Garrett Watkins.

“We knew we wanted to open our new franchise somewhere that was well-populated and exuded excitement, and CityLine fits those qualities perfectly,” Garrett Watkins said in a statement. “With great restaurants and really cool live events, there’s always something going on at CityLine, and it’s definitely a place we want to be. We are excited for the opportunity to bring our barbershop to this area of Richardson.”


In addition to haircuts, the shop will offer shampoo service, scalp massage, hot-towel face treatment, back of the neck shave and relaxing shoulder massage, among other services.

To celebrate its grand opening, Diesel Barbershop will host a ribbon cutting at 4 p.m. May 5, and it will welcome guests from 4-9 p.m. to check out the new shop. 469-207-1815. www.dieselbarbershop.com/location/cityline
