Meet The Team

Nick Castagna

Nick Castagna

Nick, who is the son of Ray, started his barbering career in 1977 heading to sunny Florida to attend The Miami Barber College. Upon completion, Nick returned to Westerly to work alongside his father, eventually taking over the reins of Ray’s.

While achieving Master Barber status, Nick soon became proficient with the tools of the trade whether it be shears, clippers, or razors. (Sorry, but no straight razor shaves.) More recently he attended The American Crew Academy in Colorado along with numerous trips back to Florida to fine tune his barbering skills.

Nick is very proud to continue the tradition of offering quality hair care in a welcoming, professional and fun environment while surrounding himself with a top notch team.
