First time going to Talking Heads and I'm always skeptical about a new barber, but Stephen far exceeded my expectations and delivered one of the best cuts I've ever gotten. Making an appointment on the app was so easy and my cut started exactly at the time I scheduled for! Thanks again Stephen!read more

Having read several glowing 5-star reviews of Talking Heads in Asbury Park I was cautiously optimistic as I headed to my first experience yesterday... Bottom line: These guys are the real deal, they delivered and more, a great cut, a terrific experience overall, and an environment that is as unpretentious and comfortable as any guy could possibly hope for. They actually care about their clients, what a concept! My only regret is that I did not know of them or have an opportunity to give them a try months & months ago! ha Can't recommend John, Joe, and the rest of the crew highly enough, also booking an appt online was a piece of cake and another plus. It was a total pleasure, thanks guys!read more

My hair journey can only be described as a "long strange trip." However, that trip has found a permanent home at Talking Heads. I have gone to many salons looking for that "right look," but it was not until I met John that it all clicked. To my fellow women--ditch the salons and go to the barbershop (specifically Talking Heads)! You will love the results!read more

Talking Heads is the only barbershop I can go to without feeling any "haircut anxiety." I can visit the shop confident that I will walk out with a solid cut from any of the barbers (though John "the Hawk" Hawksby is the best of the best). The haircut is great, but the peace of mind is priceless. Thank you, Talking Heads!read more

Such a great atmosphere at the barbershop. Always friendly, interesting conversation. And the cuts are even better. I have "difficult" hair to deal with, but Hawk kills it every time.

A cut above. I unequivocally recommend Talking Heads. I see John once a week for a beard trim and lineup, with haircuts every 4-5 weeks. He keeps me looking like a gentleman. His eye is impeccable. If he says my beard should be shaped a certain way, or that a certain length for my hair is best, he’s right. The subtle insight is always appreciated. The jokes and our rapport make the time I spend in his chair a pleasure.read more

Parking isn't the easiest, but to be expected for the location - if you are traveling there.Prices are what you would expect, I'm sure that location carries alot of overhead, and quality also demands a market price.The shop mascot was a great pup, I was glad to make that edit of the picture.I had given a 3 star, no review or detail statements; and that was definitely a mistake. The owner and staff were friendly my last visit, which was about a year ago... Shave and cut were exactly what I expected.Being contacted, so directly-with a photo of my Google profile in a text (directly) about my review was a little odd, but I can also appreciate at the same time, their pride in their work and extending an effort to have a 3 star review explained. I'm cool with that-but I wouldn't recommend texting directly other clients, they may find it creepy. For me, it was just a chance to correct what should have been a star review from last year.If you want quality work, and can budget for it-DONT hesitate!! 💈✂️read more

Glad to finally get a haircut from my man Hawk. John has been cutting my hair for the past 20+ years. In fact he is the only person to cut my hair in the past 20 years.Talking Heads Barbershop has the old school barbershop feel, but with an atmosphere that welcomes people from all walks of life. It was nice to see they are taking all the precautionary measures to ensure their customers safety, and their own. Every person who walks in gets a temperature scan, and a mask is required.They always have eclectic music playing, which is a plus. The entire staff is friendly, I couldn't ask for a better experience.Keep up the great work!read more

Sean was great and very helpful at helping me in figuring out what exactly I wanted my haircut to look like. I didn't exactly know how to explain what I wanted so all I did was show him a picture and he knew what to do. The place was very clean and the staff was very friendly as well. I will definitely be back for my next haircut!read more

Love the quality of haircut these guys give me time after time. Andrew has been my barber for the last 6 years or so; I'd consider him much more of a friend than my barber. As for the shop, I don't know another barber shop in town that radiates such peaceful vibes. It is the epitome of an Asbury Park business which is why they will keep getting my business for years to come! A very covid friendly atmosphere (masks on, by the rules).read more

Stephen has been my go to barber for months. I refuse to let anyone touch my hair after I started going to him months ago. He not only does an exquisite job, he is also one of the friendliest guys you’ll meet. The shop itself is also a calming atmosphere with a welcoming staff. Jon the owner is also extremely professional and kind, and this reflects on not only his employees, but the business as a whole. Stephen and Talking Heads will continue to see my business!read more

I don't think I've ever reviewed a barber shop before but I had to give Talking Heads the credit they deserve.I've gotten my hair cut by both Sean and John and both haircuts were some of the best I've ever had. I have very thick and curly hair so most barbers struggle a bit but they had no problems.Prices are very reasonable (especially for the quality of the hair cut), plenty of free street parking nearby, and the haircut itself was great; absolutely recommend to anyone!read more

John and the staff at Talking Heads totally hooked me up for my wedding. I had long hair and was nervous to cut it a week out of the wedding (laziness on my part). Ultimately, I found that I came to the right place; they were professional and put me at ease with the haircut/trim that I received and I looked sharp on my wedding day (after I came in for a last minute styling that they squeezed me in for!) 5/5 for this crew for helping me out on my day!read more

John spent so much time on details that really made a difference for my wedding and all the pictures. Thank you again. See ya soonread more

I've been going to Talking Heads for the past 5 years and will never go to a different barber. John the owner runs a very professional operation. The shop has an incredible vibe filled with classical music and great shop talk. I have been brining my 9 and 6 year old sons with me and really enjoy our monthly visits. Sean and Joe treat my boys like gold and they always enjoy our trips to Asbury Park. I highly recommend this business, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.read more

The ratings don't lie! I've been getting my haircut by John for a little over two years now and he nails it everytime. I don't even have to tell him how I want it, we just get right to it. I used to get anxious when getting my haircut at one of those chain stripmall places, you know the ones I'm talking about. But now, I actually look forward to it and I leave feeling confident every time. All of the barbers here are super chill, professional, and easy going. This will be the last barber shop you ever go to, I promise.read more

Not being from around the area, I was weary to try a new place for a haircut. Went with it based on the amazing online reviews. And boy were they spot on! Excellent experience all around. Easy convenient way to make an appointment (I was lucky to get in the same day because of a cancellation). John was super friendly and made sure I was comfortable and wanted to get the haircut exactly like I want it. Great atmosphere. Friendly service. Chill music. Beautiful vibe. Got compliments on the haircut all weekend long.. even from my mother in law. Recommended for sure!read more

I am a happy customer of Talking Heads Barber Shop for over 7 years and counting. They are my absolute go to place. I've spent my whole life going to many different salons and barber shops and was never fully satisfied with the results. I have difficult thick hair to cut, one wrong move and my hair looks noticeably uneven. It got to a point that I would just ask for a buzz cut, or buzzed it myself at home because it was easier with less frustration. This all changed when I decided to stop in Talking Heads 7 years ago when they first opened up in Asbury. My barber John was able to meticulously shape my hair in away that gave me the ability to let it grow out. Ever since that day, I never buzzed my hair again and refuse to. Not only do they offer skilled haircuts, beard trims, and shape ups, but the energy and vibe at their location is a great pick me up. Especially at their new location. Plus the music playlists there always varies and is enjoyable, there has been many times I had to ask my barber "What band is this?". Like many agree, Talking Heads is just a whole vibe. I highly recommend them to anyone that is looking for a quality haircut that they can be proud of in a great environment. Thank you to all the barbers there whom I've gotten to know personally over the years! I feel that I am growing up with them all and it's been an awesome ride.read more
