QUOTE: "If you don't get your neck shaved after your haircut, you are NOT at a barbershop."

We show our customers the haircut as it comes together. Everything from the length of the sides to the finished piece to avoid mistakes, and insure the customer is 100% happy. If the customer decides to change his mind on the haircut AFTER he gets home, We always tell them to cruise in the next day and we will fix/adjust for free. Been shop policy since 1968 and always will be !

Before & After

I have said it before, as I am not a huge fan of posting pics of the shop's cuts. I think the shop and our work speaks for itself, but once in awhile a customer comes in and wants a complete change-over which has to have a photo taken of it.

Take the above lad for example. He came in with a full beard and a mop of hair. After a traditional cut and a hot lather straight razor shave (all by Joe Jr.) he left the shop looking like a new man (literally).
