It was renovated in 2011, and now features solid teak floors, custom walnut and granite barber stations, and custom wood paneling. There's a nice vintage look to the the shop. It's popular around students due to its proximity to campus, and the shop offers a 10% student discount to Princeton students on weekdays if you bring your ID.

Been going here for almost two years. I get the classic bankers cut with short sides and each of the seven different stylists that cut my hair did a very good job. Staff is friendly and efficient. Cash only. You can park in the Schwab lot across the street if you go after they close.read more

The barbers take great care of me for years now. Thanks so much. I go during the slow hours usually to avoid waiting. Not a fan of lines, traffic and the crowds unless it's a concert. This is no concert. They have plenty of barbers at any given time so the wait is minimal regardless of when I show up.read more

Would prefer "old school" straight-razor shave. But they don't do it anymore.

Great barber shop, they really take care of you. Only reason why I gave 4 stars is because they don't accept credit cards as a method of payment, only cash or check.

I've been going here for a few years now. The barbers are professional and very accommodating. After every haircut they use warm foam and shave the back of your neck with a razor. I love coming here and I will continue to be a loyal customer.read more

Never a bad experience here. Barbers are excellent, courteous, and mad chill if you strike a conversation with them. Great, classic feel. Always say yes to the neck shave 👌

Bring back the ticket system! Hate having to memorize my place in the queue. Besides that, excellent barber 👍

The bald guy with the beard did a phenomenal job on my hair. I made sure to be explicit with how I wanted my hair. He was very patient and always made sure to ask if I wanted to make any changes along the way. Will definitely go back for another haircut from him.read more

Nice staff, good hair cut - recommended

A nice space in a great location - soon to be expanded. The barbers (almost all female) vary somewhat in quality, from excellent to decent. I've never gotten a bad cut in ten years or so, but some have lasted well and some haven't For $20 it's a pretty good dealread more

So good! We always leave happy, no matter who we get we always look great. Worth every penny plus a hefty tip!!!
17:42 09 Apr 22
They don't take appointments. Just show up and wait in line. They had 6 chairs going, so even on a busy Saturday afternoon, I only waited approx. 20 minutes! Best haircut I've had in a long time. Go on a weekday for a shorter wait.read more

Moved 6 months ago and been trying to find a barbershop I like. I think I have found the one. Best cut I’ve had in a long time, nice people, she did exactly as I asked. Highly recommend
02:52 08 Jan 23
Nice place, even with a long line you won’t wait more than 20 minutes. They don’t take reservations and it’s cash only
19:12 05 Mar 23
I’m updating my review Mar 5, 2023 to say that I’ve been coming to this barber shop every 3 weeks for about 4+ years and the staff is incredibly nice and friendly. Ryan and Noelle in particular are fantastic at fades and making sure you’re taken care of. Highly recommend.read more

I came in for a haircut and I usually am not comfortable with trying a new barber. But Andy did an amazing job, every single detail was attended to. He asked me several times to make sure he was cutting my hair to the right style. Also shaved back of neck. Very impressed. I got a fade. Also they accept cash only, so make sure to have enough.read more

Usually very good except for when I came in yesterday for a cut before my wedding. The barber disregarded my instructions and took off way more than I asked. My fiancé and I are very unhappy as I had been growing out my hair for my wedding and emphasized this to the barber. Other than that, my experience has been good but that was a pretty big mistake.read more
