The Shop

this is our story

Ed Mott was my Grand father. He was one of my main influences as a Barber. At a very young age I would get haircuts from my Gramps and ask a thousand questions. I would have to stay very still unless I wanted a “bald spot” he would say jokingly. I was sure to sit still and enjoyed every minute of each visit to my favorite Barber. The other and the most major influence on my life in general was my Mother, Sharon. She cut my hair whenever I needed it and though she wasn't a Barber she was much more. She worked tirelessly to put food on the table and clothes on our backs as a single Mother. Never showing the stresses of that life to us kids. She modeled hard work and commitment and though there were some great haircuts and also some lopsided ones, haha, she is definitely the reason that I am what I am today. This Barbershop would not exist without that influence!


I always dreamed that someday I could become a Barber but ended up going another direction with a different dream of mine for many years of my life. From the age of 12 I sang and played guitar and visioned myself singing for the most popular bands such as Journey, Van Halen, Black Sabbath, etc. I would stand in front of a mirror for hours playing like I was the one singing and playing the instruments. After years of practice in front of that mirror and in local bands, I would end up touring around the world to sold out venues as the lead singer for a very popular and major Band in which I had been a big fan of for years. After my days pursuing music quietly came to a conclusion, I started cutting hair for friends and family as a hobby, I actually began cutting by cutting my own hair again, while standing in front of a mirror holding a hand mirror. I soon learned It is much easier and more enjoyable to cut the hair of another person than myself. As well as more enjoyable to have another Barber cut my hair.

Today, Vinnie Todd’s is a classic four chair Barbershop Located in the Highland Lake town of Marble Falls, Texas. My dream finally came true! I worked alone for over 3 years before Jason joined the Shop. Jason is a fine Barber with 16 years of Hair Cutting and Shaving experience. He is a super addition to the Shop and produces top notch cuts of all sorts and also does designs!

   I find Barbering to be the most enjoyable career that I could have possibly chosen. All of us here at VT's are passionate Barbers! The History and Tradition of Barbering has stood for centuries! Im so proud to be a part of that! To me a Barbershop is a place where men can go, not only to get their haircut but to enjoy good conversation and can always expect to see people they know. I think that every man needs a Barber and a Barbershop in his life. Vinnie Todd’s strives to be such a place. A place where looking back on life, you will always remember going to. as a child and appreciate highly as an adult. Just as I do now when recalling My Mother and her Dad, my Grandpa Ed and his Barbershop. I thank the Lord God for the success that He has given me and the blessing of being able to serve our small community. Who knows what the future holds, but we will keep striving to learn more and perfect our craft at Vinnie Todd's. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us, and we sure do look forward to seeing each one of you our valued clients!
