As a young girl Sophia was always interested in all aspects of beauty, in which Sophia would create bold accessories using small trinkets from around her home. She would also wear dramatic make up and create over the top hairstyles. So it came as no surprise that she would become a master hairstylist. Sophia went on to continued her education by attending Dudley’s Cosmetology University for Advanced Training, The Paul Mitchell School and The Redken Exchange for advanced training. After being formally trained and licensed in various techniques of hair design, Sophia went on to mastered her skills by working at various salons throughout the tri -state area of New York and New Jersey. Always evolving, Sophia recently stepped into the natural hair realm and began training to become a certified Sisterlocks technician. Today, Sophia has become a true purveyor of beauty and all aspects of beautification and has taken her original techniques and creative hairstyles to Avoni Hair Services. You can contact Sophia at



THE BOOTH copy copy





374 Communipaw Ave. Jersey City, NJ 07304

Booth Barbershop is far from the average salon. The Jersey City-based salon is also a recording studio where aspiring musicians are able to produce tracks, EPs, and full albums without breaking the bank.

Some refer to the Booth as a man cave, because while patrons are getting their hair shaped and groomed, they are able to engage in worldly conversations with family and friends.

The Booth specializes in all the latest grooming techniques including; mohawks, pompadours, fades, blowouts, straight razor shaves and hot towel treatments.

To keep up with the Booth Barbershop, be sure to follow their every cut, style and weekly specials on Instagram – @TheBoothBarbershop.
