Visited the location in Ocean today during their early hours. Another terrific cut by Shane. He is an artist. One of the best haircuts I’ve ever had, which I seem to be saying a lot lately due to the fact that this business and its barbers are so good. Thank you, Swagger & Blade.read more

Had to drop a couple stars. Price was a bit high for my tax bracket @$30 for cut, style & straight razor; now they've gone up to $40 but adding a wash to help justify the increase. $30 was about my upper boundary, almost a splurge. Great place, top-notch talent, but plenty other places out there. I'll have to leave it to the Starbucks crowd to fork over the big bucks.read more

Best haircut I’ve ever gotten. Alex is the man. Very skilled hair technicians. Be prepped to sit for 40-60 minutes as they are very detailed in their work. Worth every penny will be back every 2 weeks.read more

Best place around to get a haircut around by far. LOVE the new wash service as well, plus you get an extra 15 minutes. Best fade I've ever gotten. Jack is amazing.

My son has extremely thick, coarse, straight hair. Any mistake is very noticeable. Tommy does a great job and is very patient. My son is autistic and fidgets a lot. Yet his hair always looks great when we walk out. Just wish it was a little cheaper.read more

This place is hands down the best place I've ever been to have any kind of barber services. I've sat with three different barbers over the past year here and each time they killed it. I haven't gotten a better haircut anywhere else ever. I won't ever go anywhere else from now on. Shane and his crew really know what they're doing.read more

William cut my hair last week. He was phenomenally meticulous and took the time to make sure my haircut was perfect and just the way I liked it. I've had so many compliments on my cut, that i'll continue traveling from Brooklyn to AP/Wanamassa just to see William! He was also a pleasure to talk with. Thanks William-you are the man!!read more

Prices might be high, but this truly is a "you get what you pay for" type of situation. Every time I get shaped up I got numerous compliments about my hair. The barbers are all legit and the vibe in the place is great. Fair warning it is a barber shop, you might hear a couple of cush words. Also, definitely want to book an appointment through their website. They are usually so busy they don't have too many spots open for walk-ins. Also, Tommy is the best.read more

Jack Laird has been my barber since he started at Swagger and Blade. He's very skilled, fast and hilarious. Also S&B isn't your regular barbershop. It's a full experience. I recommend them highly.

I recently had a hair cut done by Jack at the Wanamassa shop and I couldn’t have been more happy. The ambiance of the shop itself makes me feel like I’m staying at a cozy cabin and the staff makes me feel like all my friends are there. Jack is undoubtedly a master at his craft. He was attentive to my requests for the style of cut I was going for and added in his own suggestions, which are always appreciated. Needless to say I was beyond thrilled with my experience and highly recommend anyone booking an appointment with Jack!!read more

Most barbershops today are about turnover - they make you look good for a day or two and get you out of the chair in 10-15 minutes. This place is completely different. Each barber is a skilled craftsmen who makes sure every hair is cut to it's perfect length. They'll spend 45 minutes on you making sure your cut will look good for weeks.read more

Swagger & Blade is an experience. In the best possible way! I’ve been going to Jack for over 2 years to cut my hair and shape my beard. This isn’t a rush in and out, like I said it’s an experience. Every single barber is a craftsman who takes pride in their work, tools and knowledge.I can’t recommend Swagger & Blade enough. It’s worth every penny to leave feeling great, fresh and valued.read more
