GROOM is NOT your typical Barbershop, an old world feel with modern elements, a place where guys can relax and experience what a barbershop was meant to be.  The sights and sounds, smells and services for guys to help them look, feel and Stay Sharp. 


             " I say you need to have three (3) things in life; a good attorney, a good tax man and a good barber. I had found two out of the three, but could never find a good barber. That all changed when I went to GROOM.  The ultimate choice for someone looking for the ultimate in haircare. I don't care if your an executive or an intern. They treat customers with first class service and attention to detail.

The one thing that separates GROOM from anybody else is his use of the straight edge razor. At first you think your on the set of a Clint Eastwood movie, however by the time he gets done, you wonder why everybody doesn't use it. I would recommend GROOM for anybody looking to pursue perfection every time. "

Barber Scott has been a Barber since 2002.  He started his career at Beek's Barbershop and four years later bought The Executive Forum Barber Shop in Downtown Des Moines.  5 years later the Executive Forum closed down and Scott opened a Barber Shop ( Papa's) out of his home where he operated for 10 years.  In August of 2019 Groom Barber Lounge was created and has been a great success.  Groom Barber Lounge is a culmination of Scott's years of Barbering and business experience, mixed with a lot of "life" experience and the Mentorship if Ivan Zoot.


Barber Drew is the newest addition to GROOM.  Drew joined GROOM in the spring of 2021.  With 2 years of experience Barber Drew was seeking a change from where he grew up in Kentucky ( Near Louisville )  on a visit to Pella to see friend  Drew learned about an opportunity at Groom.  Drew is a great addition to Groom and we are excited to have Drew a part of Groom Barber Lounge and look forward to seeing him growing here.

Scott is without question one of the best barbers I have ever used...Scott is detail oriented and goes the extra mile to make sure he sends me out in the best shape possible. Scott is also very personable and makes the time pass quickly.”

"Glad to hear Scott is looking into opening up another shop! I've never considered the guy or gal who has cut my hair to be my friend until Scott. He is truly passionate about his work and as a young working professional, I valued the time I was able to stop inside his shop for a relaxing conversation, great service, and advice.”
