my boy put me on to this barbershop about a year ago. was not disappointed, time is taken, they always ask who i'm waiting for. if my barber is late, he lets me know (which is appreciated bc I like having appointments, rather than just sitting in line for hours on end). my barber is Lu, guy is fantastic. well verse always professional. takes what I want out of my cut & adds his little style. guy knows what he is doing, period! great environment. glad I found them. best shop I've ever been to.read more

Yesterday I visited Well Kept for the first time. I was in desperate need for a cut and wow was I not let down! The professionalism was on point, the haircut was superb, and my wife was beyond thrilled to see how sharp I looked! They got me right in and spent time to make sure I was looking my best. I really appreciate the warm welcome and job well done! Highly, highly recommend!read more

It can be tough to find a barbershop with barbers that actually care about their clients, but that is not the case with Well Kept.The attention to detail that goes into every haircut is unbelievable. Do yourself a favor and ditch your local barber that spends 15 minutes on your cut. Give Well Kept a try and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.I've had my hair cut in many countries but I have never received so many compliments on my haircut after visiting here... true masters of the traderead more

Well Kept is one of a kind. There is no other barbershop in NY like it! The shops ambience is amazing. When you walk in, you immediately see the vintage details. The members of this shop are incredible, they go above and beyond for their clients. Before meeting Ruben I went from barber to barber looking for someone who can work both clippers and scissors; I finally found the incredible Ruben Blades! Ruben is a master of his art. He takes his time and will perfect any hairstyle. Thank you Ruben!read more

I tried this place because I haven't been to a barbershop since I was 10, and because of the reviews. Tbh I've been nervous about going to a barbershop because groups of straight guys make me nervous (as a hetero-passing gay dude). This place was AMAZING! Totally deserving of 5 stars. All of the guys in there were welcoming and nice, and my barber (Eddie) helped make my shaggy hair and ridiculous quarantine beard look clean and better than I could have imagined. The overall experience blew me away, and I'm already looking forward to coming back!read more

Went in on a whim & a hunch, after over a year & a half without a haircut thanks to COVID, the owner himself personally took me aside and made me look better than I thought I could going in - I'm still honestly shocked at the results. Ruben's clearly a master and dedicated to his craft, as well as the rest of his team. I wish I'd had this barber my entire life.read more

My guy Romelo blessed it yet again and worked his magic with clippers, scissors, and a straight razor in a way that I never can. 🙏 I'm grateful for the talented folx at Well Kept, the good vibes and jams always bumpin' (great environment), and finally having the sense to invest in letting professionals do their thing. They take their craft seriously and it shows, but the vibe is always light and fun. I leave every time feeling like a new man, a million bucks, or 27.26 Bitcoins (at current exchange rates).Their cuts are consistently great and always worth the price, and I've observed that they're skilled at cutting all sorts of hair, doing fades, lines, designs, the works. I just moved to Manhattan and I still make the trip to Astoria for my monthly cut because there's no one I trust more to do a great job every time and make it a positive experience.#SelfCare #TreatYoSelf #pamperyourself@romeloscutz on IG ✂️read more

As a queer person largely unable to pass for straight, I have a bit of anxiety entering barbershops given the overarching culture of toxic masculinity that comes to exist in those spaces. But as soon as I stepped into Well Kept, I could tell I was in an affirming environment. Jorge was incredibly attentive, conversational, inviting... I can't wait to come back for my next cut. If you're a queer man seeking a modern twist on traditional barbershops, give these guys a try.read more

The attention to detail, the great conversations, the atmosphere at the shop is like if your family.read more

I’m no stranger to barbershops I’ve been to my fair share over the years but this shop has to be the best by far. Everything from the quality of cut, the atmosphere to the friendliness of the barbers themselves.

Been meaning to try this spot for a while and really happy with the haircut Cesar gave me. Man of few words, but did great work both with scissors on long hair and detail work along sideburns/hairline with a razor. Definitely a professional experience.You can book through their website or walk in like I did.The interior has a nice log cabin meets antique shop vibe and cozy feel to it, but despite having 7 chairs set up - doesn't feel cramped. Solid banter between the staff & some regulars...which to me is a always good sign.read more

I have been looking for a new barber in Astoria. So I thought I will try them out. Very clean place, nice people. But was not happy with haircut. I've been there 4 times. Kept thinking will get a descent haircut. All 4 times they did the opposite of what I wanted. In addition I specifically said I do not want a fade or blend. Paid 48 dollars everytime, when it says 35 for a regular haircut. Will not be using their service again. I am really upset with my haircut. Overpriced for a poor haircutread more

I was in the area for vacation because I couldn't get an appointment with my usual barber at home. I came across this shop since I came to the city and really wanted a haircut. First off, the shop has a great environment, I was greeted upon entry, and everyone in there is extremely professional. My barber was Jonah, who is extremely great at his job and detailed. The cut was scheduled for an hour and he went over that time by a bit because the amount of care he puts into his work, but it is worth it. He asks you what you want, how you want it, and delivers on it. If I'm back in the city and need a cut, I know where to go and who to ask for.read more

I been going to Ruben for many years now and followed him when he opened this gorgeous barbershop which he is constantly updating and making it more detailed so every time you notice something different. It gives a speakeasy vibe even showcasing barbershop antiques.I prefer using their system which is by appointment, which locks in your prefer barber. They have a easy to use app (Tip: Book beginning of the month). I say this because I read a review before how the app does not work because it shows no availability, that is because they are that good at what they do and get booked up immediately. The app will also show you other barbers available. When Ruben is not available, I go to Jose, also known as Thetattedbarber. Another reason is you choose the services on the app and the total price is shown so no surprises at the end of your cut.They do have walk ins, but that is up to your discretion.Ruben's attention to detail and passion for perfection is what makes the cost worth it. I can tell you from past experience with other barbers, I would have to come home and finish the job, at Well Kept, I can go straight to my next destination knowing my cut is complete.Pros: Easy to use App. Skillful Master Barbers. Attentive. Very Clean. ProfessionalsCons: They book quickly. Parking is tough, give yourself time to find parking. there are free but mostly parking meter.read more

This is the best barbershop in Queens, hands down. Whether it's attention to detail throughout the haircut or within the shop design, there is no better experience and shop. And Ruben, at the helm of it, as a co-owner, is the GOAT, which explains why the barbershop is so good. Ruben goes beyond being a barber; the man is an artist. No exaggeration. Another key reason why Well Kept is the best barbershop in Queens is because all the other barbers are just as nice. Normally, getting a good haircut is a gamble if you go to any barbershop and don't have a go-to person there. But at Well Kept, you can rest assured that you'll come out of the shop looking fly with whoever you cut your hair with.read more

Finding Frido during a busy day away from my usual area was a stroke of luck.I got the presidential-level fade: Burst FadeDesign that left me speechless, even compared to my pricier city barber. What set Frido apart, though, was his gentle care while giving me a spa-like experience. As a delightful bonus, he handed me an unreleased texturizing powder from his upcoming product line. Now, I'm a devoted regular, booking a chair at Frido's every week and eagerly anticipating his productline's debut. Frido's talent and personal touch are unmatched, making him my top recommendation!read more

Where do I start: the owner, Ruben, has been cutting my hair for well over 15 years. He is professional, committed and is very detailed in his art (his art with the shape-ups and beards is phenomenal (very clean look), taking his time to make sure my haircut is sharp for my next court appearance before the judge with my client, my interview appearance as a legal advocate when I appear on Telemundo and Univision. Ruben is not just my barber he’s become a great friend and he has developed a wonderful team of barbers who also share his passion for his work. I highly recommend a haircut at Well Kept Barbershop.read more

    Not a great experience. As a walk-in, I was assigned to the newest BARBER. He didn’t even have any Barbacide. I paid $95 for the full treatment: haircut, shave, steaming. The hot towels were not very hot. Nothing was fragrant, but the barbershop smelled like food. The most disappointing thing is that they didn’t have anyone providing any supervision to this new guy. That’s a clear indication of a leadership problem, and those are problems that don’t go away. In conclusion — For my money, I would probably go somewhere else.
