The 5 Top Barber Shops In Houston 

Our Criteria

Barber’s Personality:  We believe going to the barbershop should be an enjoyable experience. So we looked at barbershops that have barbers who can make their clients comfortable. 
Barber’s Skill: Barbering takes skill; it’s not for amateur hands. Therefore, we selected barber shops that contain skilled barbers who are conversationalists and skilled in any cut or style. 
Shop Atmosphere:  We chose this as a criterion because barbershops that contain modern amenities and meet the cleanliness standards reflect professionalism. 
Other Services:  A great barbershop should offer more than simple haircuts. So we took note of different services provided that enhance the client’s experience.

Pros

  • Reasonable prices

Cons

  • No official website
  • Appointment reservation fee

Joel, the owner and main barber at HTownsBest Barbershop, has earned a place in the hearts of local customers. We have heard tons of compliments regarding his friendly and professional mannerisms. 

Not to mention that some clientele claim he’s a perfectionist regarding their satisfaction. 

For an urban barbershop, the establishment is very clean and professional. That’s the first thing we noticed when we visited.

From our observations, we also saw how Joel keenly pays attention to each of his customer’s needs. 

We noticed that he inquires about the kinds of hairstyles they want, but he’s not afraid to give his input if he thinks a different style would look better on the customer’s head shape. 

We like how Joel practices social distancing with all his clientele and wears a mask. In between customers, we saw him sanitizing all his equipment. 

But what we liked the most was Joel’s high energy and comfortable spirit that can make anyone relax. 

In addition, we witnessed him working with children’s cuts in action, and we were impressed by how engaged he is with them. Of course, the hair cuts come out looking fantastic too! 

We appreciate how he takes his time and does not rush through the cutting process. So to us, it is plain to see that Joel takes pride in his work!

Pros

  • Rock star experience
  • Free Wifi is available 
  • Credit cards are accepted

Cons

  •  Late appointment policy 

Floyd’s 99 Barbershop creates an ultimate rock star experience for all their clientele. At least, that’s what we’ve heard from everyone we had a chance to speak with. 

Some even compared the atmosphere of Floyd’s 99 Barbershop to being at a rock’n roll concert. 

After our experience at Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, we can testify that the claims of many customers are valid. 

From the moment we walked into Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, rock music boomed from the speakers. Posters of classic and modern rock stars adorned the place from the floor to the ceiling. 

Yet, their advanced technical training and education is what sets Floyd’s 99 Barbershop apart from other barbershops. That ensures consumers get solid service even from newer barbers.

We observed that the barbers provide classic straight razor shaves, complete with hot steamed towels, which most will appreciate. We also love that they offer free shoulder massages to all customers! 

What’s more, we noticed that although most of the customers were male, services for women are also available, such as waxing, hair coloring, etc.  

Finally, another thing we like about Floyd’s 99 Barbershop is that there are no appointments required for most services. 

That said, appointments are recommended for customers hoping to get hair coloring services and shaves in particular. 

Moreover, if a customer is late to an appointment, the barber may cancel depending on their policy.

Pros

  • Credit cards are accepted
  • Free Wifi is available 
  • Military discount is offered
  • Bar and cigars are offered

Cons

  • Expensive rates 
  • Apple Pay is not accepted
  • Android Pay is not accepted

The Gent Spot has been described by clientele as a luxury spot with great ambiance and quality haircuts. People told us it’s the place to go for drinks and cigars. 

When we walked inside The Gent Spot, we understood why people commented to us on the luxury ambiance. Not only is the decor stylish, but the entire atmosphere is laid-back. 

We loved that there was a full bar available. By the way, a haircut is not necessary to enjoy the bar. 

Nevertheless, everyone we encountered appeared to be relaxed and enjoying themselves.  

While we feel that the atmosphere does cater more to gentlemen, by the way, it’s also very welcoming for women. Among other things, they also provide waxing services for men and women.

We like that everyone on the staff shows genuine hospitality and treats their clientele pleasantly. We also observed firsthand that the barbers apply their skills and creativity when cutting and styling a customer’s hair. 

Oh, and we noticed some children here too! We were actually impressed by the ability of the barbers to help the children feel at ease before beginning to cut their hair. 

Overall, it was plain to see from the atmosphere that everyone we observed loved working there, and the customers’ smiles said a thousand words.

Pros

  • Underground parking is available
  • Credit cards are accepted

Cons

  • Appointment based 
  • The rewards program is a beta version 

The barbers at Urban City Barbershop hold a reputation among their clients for being humble, down to heart, and for giving great haircuts. Well, at least, that’s what we were told!

When we stepped into the barbershop, we were welcomed by the friendly staff who seemed to prove what people told us about them. We liked how at ease we felt. 

Just one glance at their menu of services, and we could tell that the barbers were professionals who can handle any beard or hairstyle. 

We even had the opportunity to speak with the owner, who, by the way, gave us some excellent advice about beard and hair care. 

Every word the owner expressed demonstrated his passion and knowledge of his products. Because he spoke in a relaxed manner, we did not feel forced into any sales. 

In addition, we also like how all the barbers we observed made conversation with their clients to best understand what cut to give. They also provided pointers on which products may be best for their hair and tips on maintaining their beards. 

Again, we noted that no one was pushing any customers to buy the hair products sold at the store. 

By the way, we have heard from customers that Urban City Barbershop does require a debit or credit card to reserve an appointment. 

On the bright side, many also have raved about a new discount reward program. Yes, it’s completely free to join!

Pros

  • Authentic barbershop experience
  • Credit cards are accepted 

Cons

  • Rushed service

Most of the customers we spoke with proclaim Doug’s Barbershop is a tribute to the good old days. 

This remark may be because of the classic barbershop atmosphere Doug’s Barbershop portrays. 

We found the claims to be genuine ourselves during our visit. Right away, our eyes were glued to the walls, and we traveled back in time to the 1920s. 

There is a variety of memorabilia on the walls displaying the barbershop’s history up until the present day. 

True to many customers’ words, the efficient, friendly barbers contribute to making the environment laid back for all to enjoy. With every client who walked in, we witnessed how accommodating the barbers were.

From our observations, customers don’t stay too long in the chair either – and it’s a quality cut for a reasonable price. 

The barbers seem pretty capable too, being able to do razor shaves, fades, and trimming beards. 

Interestingly, this classic barbershop also tailors to children. However, the child would need to be old enough to sit still in the chair for at least ten minutes for a cut, naturally. 

On the whole, we think the real charm of this place is the way Doug’s Barbershop remains true to its roots. It’s a good place to get an affordable classic experience for your next cut or trim.
