Your barber shop questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much does a barber shop haircut cost?

A barber shop haircut cost can be as cheap as $10 or as much as $100, depending on where you live. Expect to pay about $25 to $30 for a standard buzz cut. A cut and full-service shave cost $35 to $50. Some traditional barber shop cuts that are still popular today include:

  • Buzz cut – The most basic military haircut that is very short all over the head, with no more than ¼ inch of hair on top.
  • Crew cut – Similar to the buzz cut, the hair on top of the head is between ¼ and 1 inch.
  • Fade – The hair on the sides and back is gradually cut shorter and shorter so it fades into the skin.
  • High & tight – Very short hair on the sides and back of the head, but longer on top.
  • Flat top – Hair on the top of the head is cut and styled to form a flap profile when viewed from the front or side.

How much do you tip for a barber shop haircut?

The customary tip for a haircut is 20%, but that is just a starting point. When calculating a barber tip, consider the complexity of the cut and how much time was spent getting the cut to your satisfaction. Did the barber take his time, checking the sides, back, and top? Did you get everything you wanted? Then, perhaps a bigger tip is deserved.

Is a barber shop different than a hair salon?

Yes, a barber shop is different than a hair salon. Barbers specialize in short haircuts and shaves for men. In earlier days, traditional barbershops were places where men gathered to socialize and catch up on the news. Today, they are still popular with men who want a classic haircut and an old-fashioned shave with a hot lather and a straight-edged razor.

What services does a barber shop offer?

In addition to the traditional haircut and shave, barber shops also offer these services:

  • Mustache trim and styling
  • Beard trim and styling
  • Hot towel shaves
  • Neck shave
  • Scalp massages
  • Kids haircuts
  • Shoeshine

  • Read their online reviews from Fash and Google.

  • Ask questions about their experience, rates, services, and availability.
  • Check to see that the shop is clean and well-maintained.
  • Make sure the staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

What questions should I ask when choosing a barber shop?

There are plenty of great barber shops on to choose from and asking questions is a great way to narrow down your list of favorites. When selecting a barbershop, don't forget to ask these important questions:

  • What services do you offer?
  • What are your hours of operation?

  • What payment methods do you accept?
  • Do you do the type of haircut I am looking for?
  • When is your next opening for a haircut?
