A barber shop is one of those things in life where, when you find a good one, you squeeze onto it and never let go. We’ve all experienced the trauma of the terrible haircut: having to go back and getting it fixed up, or wearing a hat around for a week. Equally as bad is a barber shop with no personality, where you feel like you’re sitting in a doctor’s office. Here are three Toronto barber shops that have good cuts, good personality, and decent prices.
Black & White Barbers - 2231 Dundas Street W
Black & White has got friendly barbers that will take their time giving you a quality cut, whether you’re looking for an intricate fade or something more straight-forward. They’ll use a straight edge razor on your neck, which is a nice touch, and their cuts are only $18.
Rod, Gun & Barbers - 2877 Dundas Street West
Rod, Gun & Barbers is one of those hyper-masculine type barber shops where everyone working there has a giant beard, and you can drink a cold beer while they’re cutting your hair or while you wait. That would be good enough on its own, but they’re also very friendly and give great cuts.
Joseph’s Hairstyling - 1204 Yonge Street
Joseph’s is an old school barbershop that has been in the same location for an eternity, gaining a reputation in that time for being a no-nonsense, affordable place to get a trim.
