About Us




Founded in 1977 by local soul-singing recording artist Billy "The Human Perkulator" Harner, Perk's Place has become a Westmont institution and a neighborhood mainstay. Perk always ran his shop on the principle that there is no such thing as a 15- minute haircut. Driven daily by that credo, he built the Perk's Place reputation by providing truly personalized service -- one customer at a time. 


When his daughter Debi joined him in the early '80s Perk's Place became a family business. Debi added women's salon services, which evolved Perk's into a full-service barber and styling shop.


Today, Perk is retired and Debi owns the shop. She continues her father's traditions and has added a few of her own. Still an active stylist herself, Debi has built a solid team of amazing experts who all work together to deliver top-tier friendly, personalized customer care and services that must be nothing short of perfect since Perk's pristine reputation must be upheld every day. See our salon and barber services.



When you look and feel your best, life is great. When you visit Perk's Place you're more than great -- you're Perk-a-lized!

That's the term we use when our customers become friends and our loyal customers become family.

We' love to see you... again and again.

We strive to be the best at what we do -- as judged by our customers.  We are committed to excellence and extreme friendliness. We strive to always deliver top-quality services and a customer experience that will make you want to come see us again... and again.


You are our focus. When here, you are the center of attention. When you're not here, we're waiting for you to come back. (OK, maybe that last part is a stretch, but only that part.)
We truly treasure our customers.
