I've been coming here for a few years now. Alex and the other barbers are great. I've personally gotten a haircut from everyone there by now and have never been disappointed. It's always busy, but because they can all cut hair well, there really isn't much of a wait. Whether you want a fade, shape-up, taper or actual scissor work, these guys have got you covered. Give them a try for yourself and see why they're easily the best barbershop in the neighborhood.read more

Alex and Sam have been taking amazing) amazing care of me the past few years here in Forest Hills. The quality of cuts here are by far the top and the best in the area. And you never have to wait long because they always have so many barbers on deck waiting. It's absolutely amazing. And it's conveniently located on Austin Street so I walk here from my apartment every time I need a cut and when it's raining it's right next to the subway so it's just as easy. Definitely come here for your next cut.read more

I’ve been coming here for about two years now. Alan is the man if you want the best fade, and neat lines. They are always welcoming, talkative and engaging. Their haircuts are the best around and they’re very quick to get you seated, at most you’ll wait 20 mins. I would recommend them over any other shop!read more

After having the same barber for over 3 years, I moved to the Forest Hills area and tried out Hills Barbershop. I called ahead and Alex took me as soon as he had a slot. I showed Alex a picture and he absolutely delivered - skin fade and beard shape up were both very clean and professionally done. For future appointment's Alex recommended himself and Lev for my type of haircut and beard so I gave it a go with Lev my second time since Alex was booked. Again, Hills Barbershop delivered! Lev did a great job, was very friendly, easy to talk to, provided helpful recommendations etc. I highly recommend both Alex and Lev based on my experience, both did an exceptional job.Rating 4 stars because I made an appointment online which charges an additional $5 but I still had to wait an additional ~25-30 min after my appointment time even though I was early. The haircut was definitely worth the wait but wish the appointment time was better accommodated.read more

Long overdue review. Hills Barbershop has to be the best thing to come to Forest Hills since lox and cream cheese on a bagel. The barbers are professional and accommodating. I've cycled through 5 different barbers at the joint, and each time I'm thoroughly impressed by the quality of the haircut. You have to remember haircutting is an art. Each artist has their own twist to what you ask - they're the professionals after all! It's not about asking for the haircut, it's their job to make the haircut work for you - by analyzing your hair texture, volume, and shape of head. Each barber has done an amazing job at nailing this task! Place is the GOAT of barbershops in Forest Hills, and I'll be coming back for years to come.read more

I've been coming to this place for over 5 years now. Even after moving out of the area, I still drive out to get my haircuts here. From the moment you walk in you're greeted with a smile, and everyone knows who you are. The ambience is great, clean, upbeat but not too loud, and always a great playlist. Not to mention a team of top-knotch barbers that leave you looking your best. By far the best barbershop in Forest Hills, possibly all of Queens. Will keep coming back for years to come.read more

This Barber Shop is an absolutely fantastic place for getting a great haircut. I was a Flight Attendant for TWA/AMERICAN Airlines for over 43 years, and had my hair cut all over the world including the United States and anywhere else you could think of including Athens and Cairo. Sam is so skilled that his haircut looks great even after 2 months! The owner of Hills is a very pleasant gentleman, who always aims to please his patrons with a smile and a warm greeting.This establishment is super clean, the staff always bends over backwards to please their clients. I will be using its services until I have left NY State altogether.Professionalism, skill, and Service are the words to use when you talk about HILLS BARBER SHOP in Forest Hills, NY.Steve Harrisread more

These barbers are taking haircutting to the next level. In my opinion they are artists and I am always satisfied with the cut. They keep the shop clean and comfortable. On busy times it's always good to call ahead so you know how long of a wait there is. But to be honest, even when crowded, the wait is minimal. I can honestly say it is worth your wait.read more

Let’s be honest. There are a s**** ton of barber shops in nyc and most of them are s***. Took several years to find one that I trust and that’s Hills Barber Shop. My man David is a finesser, a renaissance artist in the 21st century. Few stack up against his haircuts. You don’t come out looking like a muppet, you leave looking like a different person.

I was looking for a barber that specializes in beards and was afraid to trust just anyone. I have a medium to long beard and thanks to a recommendation from a neighborhood app I found out about Hill's and Alex in particular. He responded to my questions on google very quick and I was taken care of in a matter of hours. I found my new shop and will also get my haircut there from now on also. Alex was attentive to what I was looking for and he nailed it. Professional, skilled, clean and fair priced. Thanks again guys and to anyone looking for a great place for beards also give them a shot. They will not disappoint.read more
