Spanish Fly Opens on East Market Street

Steeped in more than 50 years of family tradition, California artist and musician Adalberto Castellon Jr. is reviving the lost art of the barbershop with the opening of Spanish Fly, a community center, performance venue and art gallery located at 626 E. Market St.

Castellon, 35, recently moved to Louisville from the Bay Area and immediately became enamored with the city’s independent spirit and family-friendly atmosphere. “It’s like Oakland in 2005,” said Castellon.

Spanish Fly is an homage to his great grandfather’s barbershop, Barberia Teran, which opened more than 50 years ago in Casas Grandes, Mexico. Castellon traveled there annually as a young child and was highly influenced by the town’s highly decorated arts and craft culture as well as his grandfather’s role as a visionary and connector of the small, rural community. Castellon recently traveled back to pick up his great grandfather’s original barber chairs, photographs and artifacts that create the authentic and experiential design that defines Spanish Fly.

“I want to give this community a unique portal into traditional Mexican culture (with) … Southwest vibes (and) my West Coast personality and sensibilities. I hope this becomes a cornerstone for the community to connect, relax and unwind, just like Barberia Teran was in Casas Grandes,” said Castellon, who trained at Los Angeles’ prestigious Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise (FIDM) and is double-licensed in California and Kentucky as a cosmetologist and barber.

Spanish Fly is backed by entrepreneur and philanthropist Brook Smith, whose investments in the community have helped attract a new creative class to the city, and whose future plans dive even deeper into the city’s business and non-profit bedrock.

“The opportunity to elevate and support our community through creativity and talent attraction is a privileged obligation, bringing us back to what is truly important,” Smith said. “Adal is the real deal. Authentic and amazing.”

Spanish Fly is a full-service barbershop open seven days a week at 626 E. Market St. Traditional haircuts are $25 with other service offerings including a botanical wash and conditioning, beard trim and shape up, full head shaves and more. Keeping in family tradition, Spanish Fly exclusively uses authentic, handmade, plant-based custom products such as raw aloe vera (mixed in-house), peppermint shampoo, cilantro conditioner and more.

YourToothFairy.com Looks to Disrupt the Dental Care Industry

YourToothFairy.com has grabbed the attention of patients and dental professionals, after the launch of its new online platform. YourToothFairy.com helps patients efficiently gather fair pricing for their dental health needs and provides them with a choice of verified, quality, local doctors.

The company is an online, one-stop shop that aligns dental professionals and patients in need of dental care. Patients simply submit a request explaining their dental needs, a dental professional will then review each case, and propose a quote. Patients are then able to compare competitive quotes, read reviews of the providers, choose a doctor and schedule an appointment. In addition to the patients benefiting from this service, doctors benefit from the ability to garner new patients and collect fees in a prompt and streamlined fashion.

This business model removes the insurance and financial barriers between doctors and patients, thus creating a more simplified and translucent path to giving and receiving dental care. YourToothFairy.com also promotes patient education. The site offers a visual blog to educate patients on basic dental procedures, recovery processes and overall dental health.

“We are pleased to provide exceptional customer service by bringing transparency, flexibility and fair pricing to our patients and the dental care industry” says Dr. Denny Brummett of YourToothFairy.

YourToothFairy was launched in Kentucky in 2017 and is planning to expand nationwide within the next few months. For more information, go to yourtoothfairy.com.
