Fresh Brews & Hairdos

Valor3 Barbers + Brews Has a Unique, Relaxing Concept

Writer / Jon Shoulders

Valor3 BarbersValor3 Barbers + Brews in Fishers is the result of hard work, complementary skill sets and familial solidarity.

Florida natives Drew, Daniel and Caleb Powell opened the barbershop – the name of which is, of course, is a nod to the three siblings – in an approximately 1,300-square-foot space previously occupied by Edible Arrangements off 116th Street.

“We’ve always been a close family, and we wanted to do something together,” Drew says. “Caleb is our lead barber, and he was cutting hair in Florida before we decided to do this in Fishers. We love the city, and that was really the main driver – for us to bring a welcoming, neighborhood-type place for the people here and do something that we love.”

It’s a little bit classic barbershop and a little bit cafe culture – patrons can order a cup of joe and crack open their laptop or perhaps have a craft beer beverage while awaiting their turn for a haircut, beard trim or shave.

Caleb, the youngest of the three Powell brothers, and already an experienced barber in his own right, oversees the barbershop aspect of the business, while Drew and Daniel head up the shop’s marketing and business components.

The brothers love the location. 

“We wanted to be close to the heart of downtown Fishers,” Drew says.

Caleb and his staff offer adult and kid cuts, beard trims, straight-razor shaves, as well as coloring and highlight treatment. The shop offers combo deals that include haircuts along with beard trims or shaves for special pricing.

“It’s less of the in-and-out model – if people want to get their cut and get out that’s fine, but we also want to build relationships with people in the city,” Drew says. “We’re real relational guys, and we hope people get to know us and look forward to coming in and chilling out.” 

The Valor3 beverage menu consists of hot coffee and cold brew from a rotating selection of local coffee vendors, with flavor add-ins available, and a rotating variety of local craft beers on tap as well. So far, the shop has carried Sun King and Four Day Ray brew selections, to name a few. Drew says the brothers plan to continually feature IPAs, amber ales and darker brews in order to offer patrons a flavor variety.

“We realize that people are busy and it’s often hard to find time for things like getting a haircut,” Drew adds. “We have a shop where people can come in and relax and take a break from the hustle of the world. We went for a throwback setting like the old barbershops used to be. Our grandfather was a barber.”

Drew says the local response to the Valor3 concept has been positive.

The Valor3 staff has seen a wide range of ages come in for cuts, trims and shaves (Drew attributes the presence of some of the younger clientele to the shop’s proximity to Handel’s Ice Cream next door), and according to Drew the shop has even welcomed repeat customers. 

Valor3 Barbers“It was funny [when we first opened] because coming out of the quarantine, people were coming in looking awful,” Drew says with a laugh. “But it kind of worked in our favor because we had a lot of people coming in and the turnarounds were amazing because everybody needed a haircut. There was hair everywhere – we posted some great pictures of that on social media at the time.”

Drew adds that he and his brothers are optimistic about basing their business in Fishers and so far have been embraced by many locals eager for a barbershop with a relaxed vibe.

“The response from the community’s been amazing,” he says. “We’ve felt so supported, and even people from other counties are coming over to us. We want people to leave feeling refreshed and have a beer or two with a couple of their buddies – like the old ‘Cheers’ model. That’s our goal.”

Valor3 Barbers + Brews is located at 8754 East 116th Street in Fishers. For more information, including pricing and a scheduling page, visit valor3barbers.com or call 317-563-0002.
