I got there at 10am (opening time), and there was already a small group waiting at the door. Walk in, and all the barbers are standing behind the barbershop chairs. You just walk up and sit down in one of the open chairs. I told the barber how I wanted my haircut, and she did it EXACTLY like I showed here. As others have commented--very fast! No more than 15 minutes. $12. It was a very lively place, everyone was talking (customers and barbers alike). I loved the ambiance, the fast and decent haircut, and the reasonable price. It was my first haircut in State College, so I cannot comment on other places, but I liked it a lot. Will return. Do remember--it is cash only. No credit/debit cards.read more

Amazing place! Amazing atmosphere! Amazing employees and customer service! I forgot to ask the name of the man who cut my hair, but he was great. After he finished a fade on the sides, he asked how i felt about it, then I asked for WHOLE DIFFERENT hairstyle and he did it without complaining or making the haircut more expensive, and I appreciate that a lot. From now on, I’m only getting my haircuts at Owen’s Barbershop.read more

Have had a better cut in the past than the most recent, but they do a decent job for price and convenience.

Josh is the man! Great skin fade from him everytime. Barbershop does $12 for a basic haircut. Can't beat that price anywhere. The other guys at the shop are pretty good. At the very least they try to take their time with first time customers to get used to the way their hair grows. Appreciate it.read more

Old fashioned independently-owned barbershop. Haircuts are cheap and well done. Dinged them one star because they only accept cash, but I guess it helps keep the price reasonable.

The barbers were good. But the in-shop ATM charges 2.50 dollars for withdrawal. Take cash when visiting.

I had a haircut today. Before today, tried twice and it was satisfactory. Today a lady was taking care of my haircut and her performance is horrible. She was completely careless, talking randomly with others during my haircut. The result was terrible.read more

    Been going here for years and LOVE this place. As they get to know you, you become like family. Becky, the owner, is one of my favorite people on this planet. She and her team will take great care of you and stand by their work.
