Great haircut. Talented barbers who took their time doing their job. Longer wait than expected but I was there without an appointment and they're very busy (because they're very good). You get your money's worth here. Cash only. My haircut and beard with tip was $55read more

Brilliant Barber shop. Was offered a drink when I arrived. There are magazines to read if inclined. Jacques cut my hair and did an excellent job. Looked great on the day and has grown out well. Saw regulars come and go when I was there. Friendly and thoughtful staff. Highly recommend.read more

Awesome spot. Mark is the man to see. One of the best haircuts I have ever had, mainly due to the attention to detail they provide here. Worth every penny.

I came here from Mahwah NJ, looking for a barber who can both cut my long hair and fade my taper in. I have found the one. Emmy was outstanding. Just what I was looking for. If you are a man with long hair like me, she will take care of you. My hair has never felt more good. Thank you Emmy and I will be back soon. Keep in mind, if you have long hair, call and tell them you have long hair and wanna trim it, so they can book enough time for you. Very nice little location and great vibe. She was very polite and knows how to keep up conversation. Go see her for any haircut in that matter, you will be pleased! :)read more

Very talented group of barbers. Staff is attentive, and barbers are well trained and skilled. The shop is always clean, neat, and the environment is always welcoming. The place is always busy whenever I go, and the barbers all greet you when you walk in. Places like this are far and few between. Definitely one of a kind, and my go-to. Also, it helps that they have two locations in JC, so it's super convenient, even coming from out of the area or Manhattan.read more

I have been going to Virile (in both Jersey City locations) for years now. Each time, I'm welcomed warmly and offered a drink. The place is always clean, the staff friendly, and the barbers skillful. I am always impressed by how busy it is, so I always make sure to schedule my appointments around a month out. Andre is my go-to and one of the master barbers, so I know his schedule fills up fast. The quality of the haircut is top notch and I always appreciate the clean, slick, straight razor shave whenever I'm there to trim my beard. I've been recommending this place to everyone I can because I think the whole place is top-notch. It's even more fun if you can get there when Chunk, the barbershop dog, is holding court. He's a hoot.read more

A little pricier than some strip mall place-but they truly spend a lot of time giving you the exact haircut you desire. Just make sure you have an appointment-they’re so popular that walk-ins really aren’t an option.The drink is a nice bonus.read more

I began searching for a barber about 12 months before my wedding, not knowing my wedding would be in 12 months. I went to a handful of places in Jersey City before Virile, although once Emmy became my barber, I looked no further. The experience is always great, so much so that I booked face shaves and beard trims for my wedding with my groomsmen, father, and now father-in-law. We had a great time, as did our photographer, who captured the dapper moments as we got cleaned up.read more

Great barber shop--contemporary service and style with old-school flair. The barbers do a great job and are a nice bunch of people. It's the sort of place you want to hang out for a chat in addition to the cut, and it doesn't hurt that customers are offered a shot of whiskey or a beer when they arrive.read more

I went to this barber shop for haircuts over the three years I lived in Jersey City. Just the best experience. Rich gave me an absolutely perfect cut every time. And not only that, I wouldn't even have to tell him what I wanted, he would just remember. Great atmosphere, good conversation. Would definitely recommend this place.read more

Probably the best place in jersey city for men's hair cuts. The rates are varied based on experience if the barber, but even the "apprentice barbers" give great haircuts and you shouldn't be worried about booking with them.read more

First time taking a haircut at Virile Barber & Shop and I was fairly satisfied with my haircut!I booked an appointment with Dave and I am glad I made the right choice! I decided to chop up my 1 year worth of hair after growing it during lockdown I have straight hair and the length was up to my shoulders. I wanted a clean cut that was versatile and long enough to slick my hair back and Dave did not disappoint. He went with scissor over comb cut and point out some of the things I would expect with my new hairstyle.I highly recommend Dave at Virile Barber & Shop for your next cut!read more

Been bouncing around JC trying to find a great barber for the last 6 months and I’m so grateful that I found Dave. Never knew I had a double cowlick (and I’m 38) which made getting the back of my hair to lay flat a real pain, Dave diagnosed the issue and came up with a solution so it’s not been a problem since. Great cut, great conversation, and I’m really enjoying their proprietary hair products.read more

I have been coming here for more than a year now and had very good experience. Today I had an appointment and I was running late. I had called them to let them know that I will be running late by 3-5 mins. They mentioned if i go beyond 5 mins then they would be able to accommodate me. I completely understand that if I'm late they don't want to make the next person wait. I reach exactly by 5 mins and they said they won't take me(seems like the barber stepped out) and the only option is reschedule for another day. If they had mentioned that they won't take me even if it is 5 mins I would have returned home from half way. Guess you lost an client.read more
