While in barber school together, Debbie and Ryan Vidotto (mother and son) envisioned and planned The Good Life Barber Shop. We love the barber tradition and the community that has grown around the barber shop. From the beginning, the shop business has been built primarily by word-of-mouth and we have the best client base on the planet. We strive to keep it a place a guy can really relax and get professional, great grooming (the coffee or beer is on us).
The Good Life Barbers
Delivering the history and tradition of amazing barbering is Michael's primary motivator. His favorites are classic hairstyles and luxury shaves. Born and raised in Austin, Michael loves spending time with family (his sweetie and their two dogs) and friends, riding his motorcycle, and watching sports (Huston teams especially).
We welcome Addie Flanagan to The Good Life Team!! Addie, a little like Goldie Locks was originally from a small East Texas town, moved to the big city (Dallas), but decided Austin seems just right! She has a similar history in the hair business. She became a Cosmo first but after a couple of years decided she loved barbering and officially became a barber three years ago. Addie likes to be active, hang out with friends and her two fur babies (Cooper the dog and Mr. Smee the cat).
Courtney Roach (Formerly Schwab:)
Courtney is a native to the Austin area (Round Rock) and has always loved our beautiful city. She has been cutting hair for nine years and is a strong supporter of the barber culture. When not working, Courtney and husband Michael enjoy spending time with their two rescue dogs (Mac and Charlie...names familiar?). They also enjoy family time since all of Courtney's family live close. We are excited Courtney is a great part of the Good Life Family.
Bri has been with The Good Life team for nearing 7 years (8 years experience in Ohio). Bri is great with all types of men's haircuts (excellent fades). Bri is a self described gym rat. Bri is enjoys Austin's warm weather and great culture.
Parker James is a new Dad! He started his barber career in Houston, Texas. He can do all cuts from a taper fade to a short shag but please don't ask him to cut long layers. He also has a passion for shaving. He is a laid back guy who likes to spend time with his family, play his guitar, ride his motorcycle and feels like he is destined to be in Austin.
