Benjamin Schooley is a firm believer both sexes deserve the best hair care possible, which is why he’s created a dual-service shop not far from The Dominion.

Hamilton & Co. Fine Salons is at 21715 Interstate 10 West, suites 107 and 108.

As head of SMV Texas Design Group, Schooley found himself displeased with franchise haircut joints for men, so in 2013 he conceived Gent in Boerne, a place where fellows could get a proper grooming experience.

“I think there’s an emotional component for me. … I’m a guy, and guys need to be reminded that they’re worth this,” Schooley said.

He’s now expanded his approach, trying something new with Hamilton & Co. Fine Salons.

It has one side for men, Fine Barbershops, and the other for women, Beauty & Styling. The male space debuted in September; plans called for the female counterpart to open in late October or early November.

“I’ve mortgaged myself up to my eyeballs to try and create something I believe in.”

Fine Barbershops amenities include televisions at each station and hot towels.

Beauty & Styling is a full-service salon, offering haircuts, coloring, manicures and pedicures.

For both gents and gals, complimentary libations and online booking are offered.

Schooley, a single dad who lives in the area with his three children, said the salons are his passion.

“I’ve been here forever. I have no intention of going anywhere. It’s not corporate owned, it’s just me.” Schooley said.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
