January Fonseca Sabune, Montclair resident and barber at Vinny’s Barber Shop on Fullerton in Montclair, won second place at The Connecticut Barber Expo in April.

She competed against 33 other east coast female barbers and took home a significant trophy.

Her model is Jacob, 13 years old, a repeat client of Sabune’s, also a Montclair resident. This is Sabune’s second competition, and both times she placed. In June 2017, Sabune won third place at the Universal Barber Show in Atlantic City.
