Description

Thee Brooklyn Barber in East Williamsburg is classy throwback to a more retro style barber shop with antique decor, good conversation and 60s/70s era music. They offer classic hot straight razor shaves with pre-shave oils/lotions, hot towels to soften skin and open pores, shaving lubricants, and hot eucalyptus towels. Overall, a very enjoyable shave. Half shaves are also available to go along the upper cheeks, neck, and mustache. All services finish with steaming eucalyptus towel. Also, enjoy a glass of whiskey, while you hang out. It's typically walk in only, but they are currently accepting appointments via phone call.

I waited 5 days to give this review, giving me time to reflect and provide objective feedback, but my stance hasn’t changed: Mike gave me the best haircut I’ve ever had in New York. And possibly my life, best $30+ tip I’ve spent. The details, skill, and efficiency. Try this outread more

Took awhile to finally find my go to spot. Whether you get Danny, his twin brother or any other staff you're going to get a great cut that won't break your wallet like other barber shops in the neighborhood. Plus the location is perfect next to the L train!read more

I relocated to this area and found that going to my old barber became inconvenient. I walked by this shop and immediately noticed that a) it was full, b) Amazing decor c) conveniently located. I gave it a shot and I was very impressed. They offer white glove customer service, the shop is incredibly clean, and they're amazingly skilled barbers (professional advice & styling recommendations) Best of all, I went back and tried out a different barber and he was just as good. So no matter which barber is available I don't have to worry. Anyone working here guarantees an amazing haircut.read more

Great barber shop. I called about an hour before he closed on Sunday and Danny agreed to take me in before closing up.When I got my haircut I didn't really know what I was looking for but he did a great job and I enjoyed the conversation a ton too. Reasonably priced and friendly work done well - all you can ask from a great barber shop!read more

Ben cut my hair and trimmed my beard yesterday and he could not have been more professional about it. He checked in with me every step of the way to make sure I’m satisfied. Took his sweet time to correct every inch and angle of my hair and beard and did it with a smile on his face while chatting and laughing. And the price you ask? The price was amazingly fair. Actually cheaper than I expected with only 45 dollars for both the haircut and beard trimming! Thanks Ben!read more

Definitely the best shop in Williamsburg. It’s not easy finding barbers you can trust with your hair. They really both pay attention to detail and over exceed what you want. I never write a review so best believe if I took the time to write this, it’s official. These guys are ligit. 10 out of 10.read more

I’ve been going to Thee Brooklyn Barber for the past 5 years. My guy Ben is absolutely amazing. He is meticulous in his craft and takes extreme pride in what he does. I recently moved out of the neighborhood, but go out of my way to come here. Definitely feel taken care of every time I go. Best Barbershop in Brooklyn. Ben is the man!read more

I was trimming my own hair and it went south. Bolted over to Brooklyn Barber on Graham on the recommendation of a friend and Ben saved the day. After coming in with a botch-up on my head that many would’ve buzzed out of defeat, Ben salvaged it into one of the best haircuts I’ve ever had. Good lookin out Ben! Highly highly recommend this place, Ben is a pro and a lifesaver.read more

As a flight attendant, I have access to the world when it comes to my necessities. In fact, I would actually travel to London to get my haircut. I finally decided to try out a barber here in New York and was honestly beyond happy with the experience I had. My haircut was unmatched and the entire crew were so friendly. Looks like I won’t be needing to head to London anymore.read more

I'm thrilled to have discovered this gem of a barber shop several years ago at a different location! The warm and inviting atmosphere makes every visit feel like a family gathering. The barbers are not just skilled professionals, but they also have a knack for making everyone, feel at ease, especially Franko. The attention to detail in their cuts is truly impressive. It's become our family's go-to spot for cuts, and I can't recommend it enough!read more

Looking for a Barber that always delivers amazing haircuts? Look no further than this spot. "Franco" is amazing at what he does. Tell him what your looking for in a haircut and he totally nails it. Plus he'll add alittle of his magic touch to put it over the top. The place itself is small but as chill as it gets. Music is always great and conversation is always excellent. Need a barber that checks all the boxes, "Franco" is your guy. Stop in and give him a try. You won't be disappointed.read more

Stumbled across Franco on a rainy day, desperately in need of a bang trim. I was initially hesitant, but he exceeded all expectations! My bangs turned out perfectly. While I can’t vouch for other styles, if Franco can master bangs, I wholeheartedly trust him with any haircut. Highly recommend – he’s truly exceptional!read more
