Had to deduct a few stars. The price was a bit high for my tax bracket @ $30 for the cut, style and razor; Now they're up to $40 but added a wash to justify the raise. $30 was about mineupper limit, almost a splendor. Great place, top notch talent but lots of other places out there. I have to leave it to the Starbucks crowds to make the big bucks.Continue reading

Prices may be high, but this really is a "you get what you pay for" situation. Every time I get in shape, I get numerous compliments on my hair. The hairdressers are all real and the mood is rightThe place is great. Fair warning it's a barber shop, you might hear a few cuddling. Also, you definitely want to book an appointment through their website. They're usually so busy that they don't have too many places open for walk-in customers. Also, Tommy is the best.Continue reading

This place is undoubtedly fantastic. I have had a beard for 8 years and I usually grow it and take care of it myself along with my hair. Once or twice a year my beard and hair need a professionalTrim to reset (split/break/transparency) and that's the only place I go. This time I had Amber and she did an excellent job. She took her time and even gave recommendations on what hair/beard style would look best. She was very knowledgeable about all things hair and beard. Sometimes a big beard can be intimidating for some places; not this place. I may not go as often but as little as possible I always go looking and feeling great! Thank you very much!Continue reading
