First stepped into the shop by referral of a friend. Experience was one of a kind. I was greeted by Larry and asked for a low fade with an inch off of the top. He gave extreme attention to detail and made sure to check in with you if everything with your haircut is going the way you want it to. The cherry on top was the hair wash and hot towel service. Would extremely recommend hitting up Larry for a dope cut!read more

Just moved here about a month ago and been dreading trying to find a new barber to go to. Luckily a friend recommended this spot. Booked and appointment with Tim. Great customer service once you step in, and it continues throughout the appointment. Tim is great at explaining what he's doing and why he's doing them, and of course gives you options in case you want it done differently. They even provide a eucalyptus-infused hot towel treatment. Haircut came out perfect, and had one of the best post-cut styling I've ever had. Pretty sure I already found my go-to place, which is awesome.read more

My first time here and it was by far the best haircut and experience I've ever had at a barbershop. The environment is really chill and clean. I can tell that the team here really looks out for their clients and knows how to take care of them. I was greeted at the door and as I got settled in they offered me water as I waited for my barber. Big shout out to Kenny for taking care of my hair. He asked me how I wanted my hair, gave recommendations, explained everything he was doing. Kenny took his time and I really appreciate his patience and attention to detail. Along with the cut they also provide you with hair wash and hot towel treatment. I live on the Island, but I was in the area for work. Even though this place is far, I'll definitely be hitting them up and coming back here.read more

Hands down the best place I've gotten a cut in NYC. Anyone who knows me knows my hair is extremely hard to cut - it's very straight and not pliable. Tim was extremely knowledgeable and had a lot of suggestions. The best part is that he will teach you how to style it . There's also a bunch of little things they do that other shops don't - they wash your hair, provide aftershave, hot towel with eucalyptus oil, and overall very fine attention to detail. It's easily worth the price (which is very reasonable compared to many NYC salons).read more

I went to 12 Pell the other week for the first time and got a haircut with Tim and had a great experience. I will definitely will be returning. Tim was extremely knowledgeable and recommended products, different lengths and explained everything he was doing. For people worried with covid, the shop was immaculate - between getting my temperature checked when I walked in and the stations being sanitized I felt very safe.read more

I went to 12 Pell for the first time recently and was very impressed with the experience. The haircut I received from Tim was easily the best I've gotten in New York, and the experience overall was very professional and polished -- I was particularly impressed with the protocols they have adapted to provide service amidst the pandemic. I only visited a week after they reopened, yet the check-in and sanitizing processes seemed well thought out and were executed very smoothly. Would definitely recommend to frankly anyone looking for a good haircut.read more

I've been going to 12 Pell since they first opened, simply because I've always appreciated what they're doing for the community. These are hard working honest dudes! Love what ya continue to do. During quarantine I kept asking my uncle to allow me to take my cousins to 12 Pell, thank god he finally gave in... they are never seeing their old barber again lol! Tim and Kevin left my boys looking so handsome. They work fast, clean and are so kind. Tim, again thank you so much for entertaining Dani haha. They had a great time! Also, it Is so affordable! Here's proof! Please support small businesses, specially young entrepreneurs, These guys have created an amazing place for the community. 🤟🏼read more

Probably the most safest place to get a haircut right now with the pandemic going on. Everyone wears a mask and your temperature must be checked before entering. As an additional protective measure there are dividers between the seats to make sure all guest are safe from one another.My barber Kenny was also amazing. He spent a detailed amount of time on my hair you can tell he cares about his clients. He also guided me on how to properly style my hair to make sure I look my best even after the day of the cut. Would definitely recommend trying them out!read more

I've been going here for awhile and every cut I get is exactly what I want if not, better. The place is nice and cozy with a modern look. Thereare plenty of great barbers but go ask for Kenny, hand down you'll love his work and your new cut. Also it's covid friendly. They take your temp the moment you arrive, sanitize your hands and have extra mask for you. So make your appointment now and get that fresh cut you've been wanting.read more

Got a fresh cut from Kenny. The experience overall was very detail oriented. The fade is clean. A barricade was set up between each barber to make sure social distancing rules apply. I was also given a disposable face mask, so that my own face mask would not get hair splintered into it. Stoked to go back once social distancing rules lax up so I can see how the experience is. Booked my next appointment 3.5 weeks out.read more

Tim is the GOAT - I was nervous about switching up my barber for the first time in years, but he made sure he understood what I was looking for. Extremely detail-oriented and makes the cut perfect every time. The staff is also very welcoming and they have gone above and beyond in terms of cleanliness. Highly recommend!read more

I've lived in the NYC for the past 10 years and this is the #1 barbershop. Clean, professional, high quality, but also the guys are all super friendly/nice and it makes for a great all-around customer experience. I would highly recommend 12 Pell to anyone looking for any kind of haircut in the NY area. Especially after COVID, these guys are doing everything possible to make the customer feel safe and welcome, with the added bonus that you get to enjoy Chinatown after the cut. I've also picked up numerous tips on styling, products, and general skincare, which can not be said for 99% of other barbershops in NYC. Well worth the price every time. I recommend Tim, but this is the kind of place where you can't miss no matter who is cutting your hair.read more

Went to 12 Pell for the first time to get my first post-quarantine haircut and they did not disappoint! Their website 12pell.com wasn’t working this morning, so that was annoying, but I found that their bookings are made on a third-party website that was fast and user-friendly. I was able to book my barber and prepay for it so I didn’t have to bother with transacting with cards and such while I was there. I was greeted at the door, given a cold bottle of water, and after a temperature check and hand sanitizing, my appointment with Kenny started right on time. I had rode my e-scooter and they put in the back storage area so I didn’t have to worry about it. Cleanliness is a major priority here, and it seemed like there was someone sweeping and cleaning when they weren’t actively cutting hair. There are plastic shields between each chair and of course everyone inside is wearing a mask. Kenny did a great job with a fade, and giving me some tips on styling. I appreciated how he had all his clippers and guards neatly arranged and not just thrown in the drawer. It’s got a Kith vibe with the Nike SB line, apparel, and hair products available for purchase, and is probably more fitting for a Soho or Williamsburg location, but here it is in Chinatown among the $7 haircut barber shops of Pell and Doyers! Don’t expect to pay $7 here though, but do expect professional service and a fresh cut that comes with attention to detail.read more
