I had been looking for someone to help me grow out my beard. So many barbers just cut it short. Then I called here and they told me to see Sam. He is the guru of beards and gives a great cut too. I always get compliments. I highly recommend him. I highly recommend this place. Everyone is so nice. Btw I’m in the business so I’m critical.read more

I highly recommend seeing Arthur. I'd get inconsistent results at other barber shops, but Arthur nails it every time and I haven't looked back. He has great attention to detail and makes good suggestions that have made my hair more manageable. You can book online at this place.read more

Just move in from NJ. Called today and the NICEST guy told me to come in and see Boris. You see...I’m a girl who shaved her head to see how white haired I am at 56 - not enough! So...it’s growing in and needed a proper “cleaning up”. Boris is a magician! These are old school barber skills right here! I’ll be back, as I am confident Boris can achieve my old short shaggy look in a few months! Thanks guys!!!read more

I’ve been coming to Chelsea Gardens Barber Shop for 5 years now. Rudy is really great at what he does; he’s always consistent with great and sharp looking haircuts and clean-ups. I have tried other well rated barber shops and I always come back to Rudy - he’s even helped me fix other barbers butchered haircuts. Over all I would absolutely recommend to get a haircut with Rudy - communicate what you want and he will deliver. Always.read more

I came from out of state was worried about finding a great barber. I got a hair cut with Arthur ( the barber with the glasses). He took his time understanding what i wanted and understanding what kind of job I do. I was amazed at the level of professionalism and creativity. I walked away from Athur's hair cut with lots of confidence and was very happy. Looking forward to coming in again. I found my New York city Barber. Great experience. Very neat job. Didn't wait to long.read more

before the pandemic, i went to a guy in the east village every 2 weeks. it’s totally out of my way, but worth it for the haircut. now it looks like he won’t be reopening, or not anytime soon, so i needed to find someone new. i read some reviews and finally chose the chelsea gardens barber shop. i randomly chose arthur to cut my hair using their online appointment system and i’m very happy i did! he gave me the best haircut i’ve had in a very long time - and this was his first time cutting my hair! my cut is simple so i expect anyone can do it reasonably well but arthur took it to a new level. i’m really happy with how i look and feel. the shop is clean and has a friendly vibe. i highly recommend seeing arthur for your haircut - he’ll be my new go-to guy! - but i imagine you can’t go wrong with anyone here.read more

Rudy's been cutting my hair since forever and it's impossible to praise him too much. He's knowledgeable, highly skilled, courteous, efficient, and has a great sense of style that he fine-tunes to suit each client. I'm a lot older than I care to admit but I've never had a better hairdresser. When you consider his reasonable pricing this is the deal of the century. Plus, the shop is a lot of fun.read more

Being back at CHELSEA GARDENS BARBER after a 4 month absence I was thrilled to see RUDY back in his place of business. I longed to see him and make sure he was well and he was and to then wrk his barber-magic and tame my hair; he did giving me the best fade into a top mild mohawk and i felt like a star. Rudy and his team make everyone feel like rock stars; they know their craft as barbers well and it shows on all the heads which walk out proudly not to mention the grin on our/ their faces. If you haven't tried CHELSEA GARDENS BARBER SHOP, you've been on another planet.read more

Took a trip to NYC and decided to get a haircut while I was there. Part of me just wanted to see how the vibe of a NYC barbershop differed from where I live. I got a quick, quality haircut from a guy named Mike ( at least that is what the name tag said on the barber stand I was at). I always explain my cut using terminology that my barbers use, but it turns out that not all barbers use the same terminology. He took the time to make sure he understood what I was looking to do. The only thing that they didn't do here which my barber at home does , is the hot lather neck/sideburn straight blade shave. It always cleans things up nice and makes for a good end to the haircut, but maybe this just isn't being done because of difficulty doing it with a mask on? Regardless, I'm glad I stopped in. Thanks for the great cut!read more

Chelsea Gardens Barbershop is the best barbershop I've been to in the city! You get an amazing cut with great service at a really good price. Arthur is my guy. I've been going to him for a few years now and the level of quality that I receive in my cuts has never changed. He makes his clients feel comfortable, he listens when I want to make changes to my haircut and he offers helpful suggestions. I highly recommend Arthur. You won't be disappointed!read more

Arthur is the best barber in town. I been going to him after moved to the City. I couldn't find anyone who understood what I wanted and how I wanted my cut. Arthur understand it from the first cut. He does a amazing scissor cut on top and a nice low skin fade on the side for me. I always bring by friends who come in town to him. I book him online and he is always on time.read more

Are you overwhelmed by the insane number of barber shops on 23rd street? Look no further. I’ve been coming to Chelsea Garden for years and am so glad it’s open again. Totally clean and totally safe, Chelsea Garden is definitely still the best barber shop on 23rd street — if not the best in the city. You can’t go wrong with any of the barbers here, I’ve never gotten a bad cut.read more

Arthur did an amazing scissor cut for me. I am from out of town and was worried that they wouldn't know how to cut my hair. He took his time talked the cut through with me and really understood what I wanted. This will be my barbershop any time I come to NYC from now on. The skin fade he did for me on the sid is on fire.It was super easy I booked online and he took me on time. Everyone was wearing a mask and very friendly. The shop observed all covid-19 guide lines.read more

My hair is very straight and that makes it difficult to cut. I've been going to Chelsea Gardens for about 7 years and I never leave disappointed. The staff is top notch and always friendly. I've probably sat in every chair at this point, but if you've got straight hair like mine, you can't wrong with Richie or Rudy.read more

I’ve been getting my hair cut at Chelsea Gardens Barbershop for a while now and I can’t say enough good things about the place. I’ve always gotten a good haircut by several of the barbers there and I’m currently going to Rudy. The first time he cut my hair, I had already been wearing it a certain way for a while and I told him to give me the usual. He immediately threw out a suggestion that he do a skin fade on the sides and back and my first impulse was to say no but he said trust me, it’s going to look great. I decided to go with it since I always appreciate when a barber offers their own opinion/vision as to how they see your hair instead of just giving you what you ask for. With his suggestions, which included a couple of other tweaks, Rudy improved upon my current hairstyle and it looks better than ever. And with short hair, precision is everything and Rudy’s haircuts are extremely precise and cut very evenly. The prices can’t be beat and all the barbers are very friendly. If Rudy’s not available, ask for Ritchie.read more

I’ve been going here and seeing Rudy for 7 years. Needless to say, he’s my guy! He always gives excellent cuts and is very accommodating to make sure you look just the ways you want. He is well aware of current style trends, and run his business with a relaxed friendly neighborhood feel. Walks are welcome, but I usually book half day in advance and a full day if want a cut on a Friday/Saturday evening. Over the years he has made upgrades to the shop and it’s nice to see. Takes credit cards and cash.read more

I'm so happy that I got my haircut at Chelsea Gardens Barber Shop.The shop is roomy, clean, and comfy with many quality barbers available to cut your hair.I grew my my hair out for an entire year prior to my new cut, so this was a was very meaningful experience for me. I came in looking for a more presentable and organized look. Rudy listened to my preferences and came up with a few ideas. As he started working wonder on my hair, we made great conversation and I had a splendid time. Rudy invested great time in my haircut and beard trim, and I'm very pleased with the result- all for an affordable price.Go to Chelsea Gardens Barber Shop to get your haircut!!!read more

This place is a little rough around the edges old New York City barber shop. I normally would go to a little more of a manicured shop but one day I stumbled in for a one time haircut from Junior. His haircut was so good, I drove back a second time from the upper west side to see Junior again for a second time and I definitely will be returning for a third. Junior is worth the trip to 23rd street.read more
