Best place around for a haircut, shave, and hair products. It's always clean, staff are always friendly, and you're always treated like a person not a dollar sign. We've been coming here for the last 3 years and it's worth the 35 minute travel. You can make your appointments online or call.read more

Absolutely fantastic barbershop. I have been going here for 4 years and have had nearly every barber cut my hair. They are all fantastic. That said, Jesus is a miracle worker. 3 years ago Jesus cut my hair and gave me a beard trim before my GF's formal. To this day, she still talks about it.read more

I have coming to Juan at American Shave since it opened in 2008, both locations have always been clean, stylish, and well curated places to get a haircut among other things. The quality of the services offered reflect the attention to detail of the space itself. The staff is always friendly and welcoming as is the owner himself and it’s a very family friendly business.read more

About eight years ago, I wandered into American Shave based on website reviews and was greeted by Jesus. He was polite, professional, very skilled, and very personable and has continued to make me feel comfortable and welcomed (and well-groomed) for all these years, despite the fact that at age 73, I'm not the typical client in this upbeat, modern, masculine, friendly place. Everyone seems happy, congenial, and proud of their work, which says something positive about management. I'm moving out of state and will definitely miss American Shave and Jesus.read more

Just came by once so far and am impressed by the experience.Inside looks really nice, they seem to have their systems together and the one barber who cut my hair was very conversational.Booking was straightforward, parking wasn’t too tough to find.Finally - I’ll withhold judgment of my own haircut since I find it usually takes a day or so to see how well it’s come out.read more

It is a great and comfortable place, the barbers are very friendly. I left my beard long for about 6 months and it was the first time I went to a barbershop with my beard and mustache so long, Luis, my barber helped me very well! The only uncomfortable thing was the lady at the front desk with a very bad character and bad attention. It seemed like she didn't want to be there. Anyway, my beard turned out great.read more

I met the owner at the New Jersey Cigar Festival in 2021. He was giving Hot Towel Shaves at the event. I enjoyed the shave that day. I now drive an hour or more, depending on traffic to get my head shave and beard done. My lines are sharp. The music they play is fire and the crew is nice. I recommend you check it out. People of all races are their customers if you're wondering if they can cut/style your hair, the answer is yes, yes they can.read more

First and foremost, I would like to give all due respect to my barber Nick. Not only does he provide great service and hospitality when I go in and get my haircut, he also gives me the precise look I ask him for. I’m excited every single time I get my haircut because I truly feel and look like a new man. Huge shout out to Nick. I also wanted to give a huge shoutout to every single employee in the place. They’re super friendly, super understanding, always greet you as soon as you walk in the door, and make it feel like you’re actually family there. The owner has done a spectacular job of not only creating an amazing environment to get a haircut, but also recruiting the right staff. I will 100% always take my business to American Shave, and I recommend everybody else does the same.read more

American Shave is one of the best barbershops in New Jersey!! All the barbers at American Shave are great, they are all super nice, and most importantly, they all know how to cut your hair to perfection. My personal recommendation would be to have Jesus cut your hair, who has been my barber for 6 years now and he never fails to do a perfect job, no matter what you are looking for!! So check this place out if you are in the area, you won’t regret it!!read more

This place is phenomenal, from when I started going to them in Union, to now the new spot in Kenilworth. They have always had a welcoming professional vibe going for them.My barber Luis Cruz is legit, takes his time and has me leaving looking right. Mind you he knows how I like my hair cut but still always takes the time to to verify what I want; you know on them occasions you need the beard to be a little more full and a different taper to it so I appreciate him for always validating first.The entire establishment is great everyone in there greets you with love and truly enjoys what they do.Also they have an amazing front desk host who I believe Christina. She is on point with the scheduling and attending to the customers, from coffee, water, occasionally beer and small talk as you wait for your scheduled appointment.She really helps light up the place as she is friendly and outgoing.I can't say enough good things about this place but do know it's the place you want to go for a chill cut and good company.read more

He has been cutting my hair for two years from now and I always appreciated how well he cuts my hair. I also appreciated the fact that he is professional, talented, and caring.
