I have been coming to Michael B's for 10 years now. The haircuts are perfection. I won't let anyone else near my hair. Longevity of our tenure together speaks louder than anything else I could say. Michael and Lauren treat their clients like 5 star clients. You are greeted when you walk in and ask if you need a drink. The conversation makes you relaxed and enjoy your time there. I've never left without having a few good laughs.If you think the pictures look good, just wait until you see it in person. The first time I walked in, I felt like I walked into a 1920s layout on a cruise ship. It actually made me feel like I was on vacation. Top notch everything.Michael, thanks for the years of cuts and many more.read more

Do you remember the first time you watched the Matrix? There was probably a thought of “what the hell did I just experience? Was it real, or just a dream?” You might as well be asking yourself the same question after experiencing the House of Handsome. The main word here is ‘real'. The people here are all real. There is an underlying respect between the clients and the staff. We all understand why we are here. The respect comes from those that have an appreciation for excellence in their craft, both client and staff alike. Michael and Lauren are real people that deliver a true customer experience. A word of advice is to request that they show how you can be most Handsome and let them work their magic. At the time it may feel like a dream, but it is very much real. House of Handsome is one of the best finds in all of Pittsburgh. Are you ‘real' enough to become part of this experience?read more

A wise man once stated... “if you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good. If you play good, they pay good.” Mike B and his staff at House of Handsome live and die by this credo. Spend one hour in his state-of-the-art boutique and allow yourself to be immersed with unmatched expertise in conjunction with impeccable attention to detail. The price of your first cut will pay for itself before a single hair is clipped, as the initial consultation provided to all new customers by Mike & Lauren will be the most informative, honest, and productive discussion in which you’ve ever engaged regarding your personal appearance. Together, you will sculpt a vision tailored to your unique look, allowing you to sit back, relax, and let the House of Handsome staff take care of the rest. Upon conclusion of your initial appointment, you will undoubtedly re-enter society with a supreme level of confidence to carry into every aspect of your daily life.In addition to unrivaled hair-care, HofH offers additional products and services of which run-of-the-mill barbershops can only dream. Indulge your feet before your cut with a professional shoe-shine that includes a deer-bone foot massage. Treat your hands to a luxurious paraffin wax during your cut, then pamper your pores with a patented 24k gold facial post-cut. They truly take personal care to another level. This all says nothing of the state-of-the-art decor and soft jazz music that perfectly capture the Jazz Age and Art Deco movements, allowing you to escape the realities of today and enjoy the intricacy and novelty of the Roaring Twenties.read more

House of Handsome is not the first expensive haircut that I've ever received, but it is without a doubt the best. Michael pays great attention to detail. The decor is beautiful, the atmosphere relaxing, the music hip, and the cosmetics excellent. Most important however, is Michael's ability to hire a staff that provides the same top notch service that he does. Lauren gives me an excellent haircut (more trendy than where I had been going) in a relaxing atmosphere each time. Michael's father is also on the staff as a shoe shine, and provides wonderful service in that area. Simply stated House of Handsome has everything for men to keep up a well groomed appearance, while also providing an atmosphere in which they can relax. Why settle for anything less?read more

Until recently, I always treated a haircut as a chore that I had to find time for. House of Handsome has completely changed my view. The decor, music, conversation, and unique services make this a place you look forward to coming to. Michael (the owner) is an amazing barber. He and his team treat their customers like gold and stand behind their services. After every visit, I always leave in a much happier mood then before I arrived. I highly recommend trying this one of a kind experience. You will not be disappointed.read more

The atmosphere of this shop is decadent, but tastefully done. The decor let's you know that you are somewhere special, indeed that You are someone special. Someone who expects more and the shop delivers. The staff is professional, polished and clearly at the top of their respective games. Mike B is an artist whose brushes are scissors and clippers, his paints are all handmade products, his canvas is You. Scented hot towels, paraffin wax, and message all heighten the best haircut you will ever receive. I had a haircut, straight razor shave and a 24K gold facial in one sitting and left the experience feeling rejuvenated, handsome and confident. If you know that You deserve to look and feel your best, then let The House of Handsome get you there. Book an appointment now, not for a haircut, but a transformation.read more

Honestly, the best haircut I've ever received. I feel like I'm doing the place a great disservice by calling it a haircut, because it was much more than that. A trip to the House of Handsome is an experience. Informative, relaxing, indulgent, it's all of those things. For those of you that feel the need to treat yourself, you can't do any better than a trip to here. And for all the guys out there balking at the price of it, all I ask is that you try it once for yourself. I promise you'll walk out saying you would have paid even more. Michael, Laurel, this shop, it's like time traveling.read more

House of Handsome is a Quality Establishment. If you take the time to read the articles around the shop you will learn of the hard work it took to build. Michael B. defines attention to detail with this distinguished shop. During my visit I took advantage of the Haircut by Lauren also the Beard & Goatee grooming by Leenie. I am confident my image will be a great first impression. Michael B's willingness to provide quality service is something I respect and admire.

This shop is amazing. Every piece and every detail from the moment you walk in. Every sense is captured and mesmerized.That detail was flawlessly carried into my service and experience. To watch Michael B and his team work is like watching a ballet performance. Everyone there moves with meaning and no actions are wasted. It was the absolute best 45 minutes of my week.I was able to unwind, decompress, and recharge for the week ahead. Not to mention my haircut was the best I’ve ever had.read more

There are no words that would accurately describe my experience at House of Handsome. I reside in California and was in Pittsburgh for business. With the trip being last minute, I didn’t have time to have my haircut prior to leaving California.The proprietor Michael B, didn’t miss one detail with House of Handsome. The shop itself is by far the most immaculate establishment I’ve ever entered. This says much, as I’ve travelled the world in my business.Everything is coordinated and orchestrated to provide the most perfect experience. I didn’t want to leave!Pittsburgh is a great city and House of Handsome has made it even better. I will assuredly visit the establishment with every return trip I have to Pittsburgh.read more

My preferred Barber Shop - my only Barber Shop. But the term “barber shop” doesn’t do House of Handsome justice. Micheal and his team create an experience and an atmosphere not found anywhere else in the Pittsburgh area. Their attention to detail goes well beyond your haircut, which I feel is the best I’ve had. I never, ever leave feeling dissatisfied, and the cut looks great all the way until my next appointment. I could go on and on, but honestly just go check out this shop and experience it yourself. They also offer shaves, facials, hair product, their own line of chocolates, and a personal booze locker so can enjoy your favorite liquor while you also enjoy your cut. I’m done preaching. Seriously just go.read more

The House of Handsome is the next level barbershop. Classy, funky, hip and cool, this place pampers you from the moment that you walk in the door. A true treat for the senses. Visually - it is stunning! A taste of espresso - don't mind if I do, thank you. The feeling of someone washing your hair - ah! The smell and feel of a hot scented towel wrapped on your face before and after a professional shave is not to be missed. The barbers/stylists are top shelf. They take the time to consult and talk with you to help you get the best haircut and shave that you deserve. Do yourself a favor and book your appointment now!read more

Have your ever seen the Seinfeld episode were Jerry's auto mechanic has a much deeper concern for Jerry's car than Jerry does; he is furious that Jerry has no idea when the oil was changed or if he is using premium fuel. Well, this is Michael B when is comes to my hair. Michael seems genuinely dismayed that I continue to shave my sideburns in the shower and that I still put L.A. Looks gel into my hair (hey, its still $3.99 for the big bottle). Quite honestly, I find this level of concern very refreshing when it comes to my hair professional. The man is the consummate professional; a true master of his craft.read more

I've had grooming sessions all over the world because of my travel schedule and House of Handsome is by far the best experience I've ever had. Starting with an espresso, ending with bourbon caramel, with an amazing head shave and beard trim in-between. Complete with hot towels, facial steaming, and an amazing, friendly staff. If you're in the Burgh, you gotta check them out. Everyone seemed great, but shout out to Leenie as she did everything right.read more

Went to see Michael for a beard service. Was amazing, they really have created a special experience. From the decor to the Frank Sinatra playing in the back ground the attention to atmosphere is unmatched. They are professional to the max explaining everything they do. They have their own line of products that are explained to you before using. The mini facial with steam towel and face scrub are a great touch, the ear and nose waxing , and eyebrow trim are all included in the price, which to some may seem steep but it isn't for everything you get and the experience you have. It’s all finished off with a delicious bourbon infused chocolate. If Sinatra, Bezos, or Musk we’re in town and needed squared away The House of Handsome is where they would go!read more

When I left my last barber, I didn’t think I’d find someone as talented but Elizabeth has proven that concern to be unfounded.Between herself and the owner, Michael, I firmly believe this is the best barbershop in Pittsburgh.It’s always clean and tidy, very professional and they stock house brand products for everything from hair care to face and body wash. The attention to detail in the store and the quality of cut are genuinely remarkable. They truly take the idea of customer service to the next level and place it on a shelf to be admired.This is the only place in Pittsburgh I will get my haircut; thank you House of Handsome!read more

She was patient, kind and meticulous. She analyzed what she was working with, identified all the issues, put together a plan and went to work. The outcome was beyond expectations.He was still in the chair with the cape on when he asked me if he could keep coming back to Elizabeth.Couldn't be happier- thanks Elizabeth.read more

Men have limited options on where to get a true professional beard trim. House of Handsome provides that option but with so much more. Michael has created a wonderful experience at House of Handsome from the moment you walk in the door and hear the music that makes you think back to excellent Jazz to a perfectly relaxed, decorated environment that takes you back to a time and place where getting a beard trim makes you feel amazing.Michael explained each step of trimming, steam, hot and cold wraps, etc. that he was going to take prior to them occurring. Once completed, I felt terrific and looked sharp. Prior to leaving, Michael offered a bourbon candy and I purchased some beard oil and a few bourbon tasting toothpicks. All in all my time at House of Handsome was a great experience that I highly recommend to treat yourself and feel like a Million dollars!read more

The House of Handsome answers the call for the discerning gentleman who plays at the top of their game.From the moment your appointment is set, you are treated like royalty and given red carpet, white glove treatment.A lavish, gold-lined waiting room allows you to “shoot the breeze” in comfort and style while you wait for your service to begin…and if you’re clever enough to rent a private locker, you can do so with your favorite spirit on the rocks.Once in the chair, you are welcomed with friendly banter…the exact kind expected from a barber…or relaxing silence, as you get the styling of a lifetime, right down to the ear and nose wax (heads up: Michael B pulls on “2.”)Your service ends the same way it began if you like, rejoining the waiting room to finish your libation and an eager scheduling of your next appointment (which is highly recommended as slots fill up quickly).The atmosphere is elegant, regal, playful, and professional…although, don’t get on Ms. Elizabeth’s bad side or she may have to throw the yellow penalty flag. Yes…I’m serious. Yes…it happened to me. Yes…I deserved it. Mind your P’s and Q’s.The only thing that outshines the atmosphere, services, and elegance are the personalities of the people inside. These are exceptional people that do exceptional work.If your job relies on your appearance; if you need to get the perfect look for the perfect day; if you just take pride in how you look: you owe it to yourself to walk through these doors and into those chairs. I laid my head back on the “Double H” logo for the first time over two years ago on a whim. I’ve never looked back…and I’ve never looked better.read more

She is obviously very talented, able to hear the style you're going for then deliver a top notch product.House of Handsome provides a great atmosphere that's calm and relaxing from start to finish.

What makes a great barbershop? Professional, clean, on time appointments, listens to customers, confident, consultative, and exceptional service? House of Handsome is all of these amplified! The only thing that outdoes the exceptional work by Michael B. and Ms Elizabeth is the luxury and plushness of the environment. This isn’t New York, this is one of a kind top notch service just outside of Pittsburgh. This isn’t an assembly line haircut by someone that wants you out of the seat in 15 minutes, this is craftsmanship by professionals. Be good to yourself - - -You’re worth this styling experience.read more

If there were a place that takes you for a trip into another world, venturing backwards into times past, this is that place. The first step into the door, you are jumping into 1930. The ambient swing music, gold trim, and marble floor make you want to dance. Then comes a haircut, not just any haircut, but an experience you will desire every single time your hair gets overgrown. When you are asked to sit, you are treated like royalty. Setting aside one hour for this wonderful trip through another time period is unlike any other barber shop around. Respectable, kind, and always keeping you handsome.read more

The experience you will receive at House of Handsome Barbershop is unlike anything you will experience before. From the moment you walk in the door, you will be greeted with some of the most genuine people you will encounter. Michael B, Ms. Elizabeth, and Brittany are not just there to cut your hair. They want to give the best experience whether it's your first haircut or 100th haircut. I moved to Pittsburgh back in 2019 and I have been going to House of Handsome Barbershop ever since. I never found anyone who will cut my hair like the staff at House of Handsome. They're not ranked best barbershop in Pittsburgh for no reason. You're missing out if you haven't had a haircut by Michael B, Ms. Elizabeth, or Brittany. 10/10 would recommend.read more

Deciding which business to entrust with your look is a difficult decision. It used to be easy for me, go with cheap and fast. After all, hair grows back quickly and spending money every time that happens isn't cost effective.For those of you who were like me, stop! Just visit House of Handsome once and your entire philosophy on personal grooming will change. Michael and his team's extraordinary eye for perfection is threaded throughout the entire experience and I'm not just talk about hair. The music and décor are all carefully curated to make you feel better about yourself, inspired, and valued.read more

I’ve had many haircuts in my life. I thought by now I knew what they were. The second I scheduled an appointment with House of Handsome, my perception was changed. Passing through the front door transported me to another time. Spacious, relaxing, retro, luxurious, opulent without appearing gaudy, and meticulously clean. Tremendous attention to detail is everywhere, all designed to help me enjoy the experience. I was immediately welcomed and introduced to the entire family of stylists, all of whom were smiling. I was not kept waiting a minute past my appointment time. The cut itself was incredible! Steam facial, hot towels, washing, waxing, straight razor trimming… they treat the whole head and not just the hair. It’s a very personal experience. The four chair salon area is comfortable and the stylists are engaging. It’s clear that the owner, Mike, has carefully chosen his associates, as they are a cohesive yet fluid unit all geared towards one goal; the customer. From the old jazz/swing music floating throughout the lavish decor to the scent of their sweet tobacco conditioner clinging to the leather chairs, every sense is given attention. I guess the ultimate question is whether i would visit House of Handsome again and the final answer is “absolutely no question”’. I’m happy that I found them and grateful for the experience and looking forward to my next appointment!read more

Outstanding experience. Brit was fantastic. The place is very elegant, clean, and relaxing, and for how much they incorporate into their haircut package, I was actually surprised by how much it *didn't* cost. I'm eager to return.read more

An excellent and perfect cut is always to be expected here! There is no other place like this shop around! Do not be fooled by the competition or big box shops! This is the only place for a legit barber cut and more in the Burgh!read more

First class service with every detail meticulously planned out. This is an experience! Every customer is made to feel like a king. My wife comments after each visit that it is the best I have ever looked. The owner treats everyone with respect. I cannot recommend this place enough. Five stars.read more

They were able to fit me in at the last minute, excellent service. I have a great haircut, shampoo, and shave. I've been back a few times and never been disappointed!

This is not your typical barbershop. If you are looking for a haircut experience and to treat yourself, this is the place to go. I had the pleasure of receiving a haircut from Nicole. She did an excellent job of getting the look I wanted. The business itself is something to see, the Art Deco style along with the music made my cut even better. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to get an amazing cut.read more

If you’re looking for a barbershop, look no further! House of Handsome is top of the mark when it comes to barbershops! Michael B. and his team are second to NONE! I’ve been to many barbers and salons across this great Commonwealth and all pale in comparison to this shop! The cuts are incredible and the shaves and facials are very relaxing and will leave you looking like a million bucks! The care and time Michael and his team give you is something you will never experience anywhere else! You will never walk out of this shop unsatisfied. I take my appearance very seriously and I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Michael and his team! There’s a reason why this shop has 5 stars and has been touted in magazines and more! Take my word and make an appointment today! Tell them Jeremy sent you!read more

First time getting a haircut professionally in a while. I researched a lot of places before deciding on one and this seemed like the best choice. It certainly didn’t disappoint. From the moment I walked in until the time I left, the entire staff made me feel like we were old friends. I booked my appointment with Nicole. She was great. She explained every process of what was going to occur with my haircut and beard trim. I can without question that I haven’t felt this welcomed at a business ever before. Even if I didn’t receive top notch service(the service exceeded my expectations), the atmosphere and hospitality of the staff would make me return. . . I made my next appointment before I left because there’s no doubt this is my go to place from here on out. . . Thank you all so much for making my experience so great.read more

My fiance bought me a gift card to Galimard for a perfume and cologne workshop. I have never been to House of Handsome before and was in awe when I walked in the door. It is a such a stunning space! The whole experience took about 1.5 hours and I will def be back to make another bottle of perfume! It was so fun & so unique.read more

From the moment I was greeted at the front door to the Second I was wrapped in the warmth of the leather barber chair and Tony Bennett classics playing, I knew I was in for an experience. Miss Elizabeth introduced me to every single employee that was there and I immediately felt like part of the family. Greatest haircut I’ve ever received, you all have made a loyal customer…bravo!!!read more

Can safely say it was the best haircut I've had in my life. My hair has never looked this good ever before, and the staff are all trained professionals who know what they are doing. My only regret is not going sooner!Aside from the excellent service alone, you are treated to an atmosphere and attitude of old world excellence that other places try and fail to replicate. This place is the real deal, and I recommend it highly for anyone who wants a cut above the mediocre that they've been getting.read more

Wow. Not much more needs to be said. Gentlemen, this place is a luxury. The time, effort, and care that they put into each person is truly one of a kind. From the moment I walked in I was swept away by the atmosphere and ambience of the shop. I was greeted kindly by the staff. Before my cut, Nicole took time to chat with me about my hair preferences and previous experiences. This was not your typical "show me the cut you want and lets get you in and out" shop. I felt pampered and spoiled from the moment I walked in until the moment I left the shop. Not to mention the cut itself looks like something out of a fashion magazine. Fellas, treat yourself. You will not regret it. See you in 4 weeks House of Handsome!read more

I have known Mike, the owner, for several years now and he is an awesome guy! I have gone into his business several times now for business reasons and I'm blown away at what he has done to clearly make himself the best and most unique barber shop in the area. He's good to his employees and customers and you owe it to yourself to visit this place. You'll be as impressed as everyone else that left reviews for sure!!!!read more

Best haircut experience I’ve had in my life. Nicole worked with me to get exactly what I wanted. The price is a little steep at first but once I realized what I was getting I’ll happily be paying that price again when I return. Looking forward to becoming a repeat customer.read more

I have had trouble over the years when it’s time to get a haircut hoping end result will be at least satisfactory. House of Handsome has changed all of this. I have received the BEST haircuts in my life, with a professional, and regal relaxing atmosphere. Michael and staff are so professional, and pay so much attention to detail. It’s the best possible haircut experience one can have as you’re treated like a king and the assurance of an awesome end result. I always feel so fresh and like a new person after my cut from house of handsome! Ms. Amanda did an amazing job and I left feeling like a king!! Every visit is such a relaxing, thorough, and positive experience. This is no Supercuts! House of handsome has spoiled me!read more

I have never had a haircut experience like the one I received here. Ms Tionna, my hair stylist, and the entire team are all wonderful. The place looks and feels opulent, like I stepped back in time to the big band era. I will definitely be coming back.read more
