ERIC CARDIN, OWNER
Founded in 2016, Groom Room is owned by Master Barber, Eric K. Cardin.
It is no coincidence Eric has a passion for a profession that gives it in return, because barbering has played such a prominent role in his family heritage. A proud native of Durham, Eric is the great-grandson of Archie Charles Artis, who founded the city’s first African American barbering school in 1946.
In pursuance of the family profession, Eric attended Harris Barber College before acquiring over 15 years of experience working at J&S Barber Shop under the guidance of renowned Master Barbers, John Scotton and Mario Little.
Today, Eric operates Groom Room alongside a team of skilled barber professionals happily servicing the Durham community.
