The Best Barber Shops In The U.S.

If you haven’t noticed, we’re currently living in a barbershop and grooming renaissance. All over this great country there are men, ladies, and shops dedicated to bringing back the dying barber shop arts. From straight razor shaves to old school cuts and service, there’s never been a better time to ditch Supercuts and find yourself a proper barber. To get you started, here’s some of our favorite spots all across the country.

Blind Barber
Locations: LA/Manhattan/Brooklyn
The best of new school and old school, they’ve got shaves and cool cuts on lock. That they’re going to give you a delicious cocktail while you get trimmed doesn’t hurt either.

Freeman's Sporting Club
Locations: Manhattan/Tokyo
A hidden gem and East Village institurion, this lowe-key spot combines a world-class barbers shop, retail store and a terrific restaurant.

Belmont Barber Shop
Locations: Chicago
This Chicago favorite is keeping the pompadours and slicked hard parts going strong in the Windy City.

Fellow Barber
Locations: Manhattan/San Francisco
A great throwback vibe and the best of traditional services. Their house grooming products are also terrific.

Stache House
Locations: Orange County, CA
Our office favorite, this Fullerton local is repping the old school and keeping their services personal. They’ve also got a pool table to keep you occupied while you wait for a top-notch straight razor shave or trim.

Art of Shaving
Locations: Las Vegas
Nothing cures a morning-after-bottle service-level hangover like a straight razor shave and a little pampering. You’ll be ready for Saturday night in no time.

Neighborhood Cut & Shave
Locations: Brooklyn/Manhattan
Tommy and his crew make you feel like you’re part of the family from the minute you walk in. From cuts to shaves, these guys bring the old school mentality and dedication to a new generation.

Wise Owl Club
Locations: Washington D.C.
Specializing in both old-school cuts and straight razor shaves, Wise Owls is the perfect mix of old and new and a longtime Chicago favorite.
