Description

Clever Barber (Brooklyn) specializes in trendy haircuts, old school hot towel shaves and beard trims. They maintain that traditional quality in a rustic-chic interior where you can sit back and enjoy a shot or cold beer. They take walk-ins and appointments, although if you're going on a weekend, I'd suggest an appointment.

One of the best barbershop experiences I’ve had in a long while. Decided one day to give them a try, since I was in the area and looking for a new barbershop, and it’s been a regular blessing since! Although I go to my one particular barber consistently, I’ve seen each barber give a quality haircut and the service is worthwhile. Good vibes, decent setup and super comfortable atmosphere. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!read more

George is the best. Asks lots of questions and makes sure, your expectations are met. The shop is nice and the prices fair. For Sat + Sunday, better get a reservation from their website as it gets pretty busy. Its very simple and quick.read more

I'm a queer woman and I had a great experience at Clever Barber. They fit me in as a walk-in and Edgar did a wonderful job on my cut. He has excellent attention to detail.

Accidentally came by the barbershop about a year ago and haven't been to any barbershop after. Drive about 30-45 mins to just get my cut here. I have family members coming here also from all over. Definitely give them a try, if you haven't yet.read more

The most professional and expert barbers are in this establishment. My main man George runs the place and I’m always welcomed with a smile. Walking in I’m greeted by an ice cold beer. There is no other barber I would let touch my head. Looking forward to heading back there ASAP once they open.read more

Got a great haircut. Barbers were in PPE and had good techniques for getting around the masks for trimming around the ears, etc. My only gripe would have been that I wish I could have charged the tip with the cut, because I didn’t have much cash on me and I would have tipped more.read more

Clean, professional, patient and COVID accommodating barbers.I appreciated that they sanitize their tools before using them. If your barber doesn’t do that, regardless of a pandemic, then you need to either have a conversation with them or switch barbers.You can schedule online or call in. I would suggest calling in. Price is reasonable for a haircut in this part of Brooklyn.Wear a mask.read more

Went in to surprise my husband so he can finally get that post covid cut. Listen , this barbershop is in its own league!!! Their customer service is top notch , they try to give the customers what they want and their clipper skills is on point and for the price they are charging for licensed barbers and hair stylists , it is a steal! He went to Boris and got a fade and beard touch up and Boriz did an amazing job , 100% will be coming back and the entire vibe of the barbershop is all good and alive! Everyone is super kind and chill and they definitely are one of the best barbershops I’ve ever been to. If your looking for a barbershop because your tired of all the overpriced terrible barbers , come here.read more

Took my 2 year old here. My boy hates buzzers and is terrified of it, but the worker was very gentle and skilled in handling children. In fact, most of the haircut was done by comb/scissors. When it came to using the buzzer, the barber turned on the buzzer to let my son see and hear it. He then let my son feel the buzzer, as a kind of exposure therapy. To my surprise, my son was not crying hysterically, Having a show he likes to watch on my phone helped as well.read more

Clever barbers cut all of our children's hair including my husband. Would highly recommend the haircuts here.read more

I was getting cut from different barbers each time, and satisfied each time, although recently I think I prefer to schedule with Nathan. He's barbers clearly take great pride in their work. The online scheduling system is simple, they accommodate walk-ins, and unplanned cuts pretty well, and the overall experience has been worth the money.read more

I've been getting my haircut with Edgar for a few months now and it's been a GREAT experience. Edgar has a special talent for getting it right every single time with minimal direction. I've found that when it comes to getting your haircut, you can describe what you want to your barber in excruciating detail but at the end of the day it just comes down to how they do it - when it comes to Edgar, you can trust that its always on point and perfect. I trusted Edgar with my hair the day before my wedding and my wife was incredibly happy (of course so was I). You can't go wrong with Edgar, I hope to be going to him for a long time.read more
