Located in Cameron Village, a shopping center that first opened in 1947, this establishment puts a modern twist on the classic barbershop.
While walk-ins are still welcome, I took advantage of an online reservation system to claim my spot in one of the old-school barber chairs. Regardless of how you get in line, everyone gets their choice of cold water or a craft beer to keep them company while they wait to be attended to. An atypical selection of magazines awaits those on hold for a chair, or they can also choose to peruse the large collection of locally sourced goods in the cubbyholes near the front door.
Once seated in front of the mirror, guests can expect to be treated to a non-rushed, professional hair cut. Clippers may be used but they're the exception, not the rule. Attention to detail and craftsmanship are the order of the day here. And they're not all strictly business, either, as the barbers are engaging and entertaining people. If you're lucky you might even end up with an additional complimentary beverage. In my case that extra beer wound up being finished off as I scanned the cubbyholes full of locally made clothes, bitters and art before I left... happy and well-trimmed.
