Bishops Cuts and Color Opens First South Carolina Hair Shop in the Upstate

Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

Bishops Cuts and Color, a Portland-based unisex hair care shop offering quality service at affordable prices, is opening its first South Carolina location in Simpsonville. Bishops Simpsonville – at the intersection of Woodruff Road and Hwy 14, – boasts highly trained stylists ready to make clients feel their very best. From the locally produced mural artwork featured on the walls - to the music played - to the variety of cuts and color offered, Bishops creates an empowering environment where individuality is celebrated, further strengthening a diverse community.

“This is more than a place to get a haircut, it’s a full-on experience,” said CEO Leo Rivera. “The a-la-carte hair care menu caters to all ages and genders and lets clients choose their own hair adventure.”

Customers can expect a laid-back atmosphere, enjoying early MTV-style music videos on the specially curated Bishops TV platform while sipping a free beer (for those over the age of 21) from local breweries. With a finger on the pulse of the Upstate’s busy business community, Bishops offers convenient walk-in scheduling that adapts to the client’s schedule, not the other way around, and provides an extensive list of services, from the traditional haircut and color, to blow outs and styling, as well as beard trims and plex treatments. For the environmentally conscious, Bishops is proud to offer vegan color products by Pulp Riot.

Community involvement is a key component of the Bishops brand, which has supported many national nonprofits including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and the American Diabetes Association. Bishops Simpsonville looks forward to partnering with other local non-profits, including the Boys & Girls Club of Greenville County.

“When we decided to bring Bishops to the Upstate, we knew it was important to immerse ourselves into helping shape a community where we’ve made our home,” said Bishops Simpsonville franchise owner and Carolinas native, Kevin Trexler. “The Bishops brand is dedicated to celebrating differences, giving back and making people feel amazing. We are committed to bringing that to the Carolinas, beginning here at our shop on Woodruff Road.”
