We Have top quality Merv-13 air filtration.  This is a safe, hygenic shop!

Most cuts cost 20$. Fades and flattops are 25$. If you have long hair and need a shampoo and layered cut (or God Forbid, color) find a salon–there are thousands of them. This is a Barbershop. I specialize in ivy league cuts, clipper cuts of all kinds, tapers, fades and flattops. There are only a couple of shops left that provide this service in the Downtown area.


Please call early in the day, or a day early, for all appointments. Many last minute appointments cannot be made under the “By Appointment Only” format which the industry has adopted for the duration of the pandemic.

NO VACCINATION NO HAIRCUT. If every shop adopts this policy we’ll be able to recognize the anti-vaxxers by their crazy-hair. I don’t care what your excuse is–NO VACCINATION NO HAIRCUT.

Seven years of hard work with key support from the Minnesota Historical Society and the Hennepin County Library, Special Collections …. All profits return to the neighborhood group.
