Ray’s Hair Cutting is built on a tradition of excellence dating back nearly 70 years. Founder Ray J. Castagna, earned his Art of Barbering certificate in 1949, honing his skills with local master barbers before eventually opening his own barber shop, Ray’s Hair Cutting, in 1954. Castagna perfected his barbering skills in New York, Florence and Rome, delivering the best in men’s hairstyles to generations of people living in and around Westerly, RI.

After decades of work, Castagna eventually traded Rhode Island for sun South Florida, bestowing his talents and wisdom to his son, Nick, who now operates the barber shop and hair salon. After decades of family-owned management, Nick is thrilled to lead the quality, experienced team that our customers know and love.

Our salon and barber shop has been family-owned and -operated for nearly 70 years.
