Faustine Archuletta has been cutting my hair since elementary school. I'm 39 now, and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Faustine is quick and doesn't waste your time, but you can get into meaningful conversations about the Denver Broncos, whom Faustine is a fanatic fan of. But he never loses concentration while talking--maybe the opposite. A master of his craft, I can tell him anywhere from 'the usual" to "keep it medium" or "chop it off for summer" and you get just what you asked for. Faustine's wife has a beauty shop next door, so it's a family business and can be a family outing where everyone gets their hair done. Prices are reasonable, and you're supporting local business instead of the bland corporate chains. You won't be disappointed.

I recieved a rave review from a friend that has been going to this salon since it opened and the stylist for 5 years, I was hesitant befor because I would have to drive from the airforce base at the other end of the city. Once I decided to make an appoinment with the stylist I was so pleased and basically kicked myself for not booking an appointment with her sooner. Not only did she do exactly what I asked her, she suggested another awesome way to do my hair that I LOVED even more. Until we get stationed somewhere else I will continue to see this stylist and even then I hope we go somewhere close so I can continue to see her when I come to see my friends.
This is a real Barbershop, it isn't great clips or any of those other production line "salons"..... It is a "Barbershop where a Guy can go and get a nice styled cut. The Barbers will actually have a great conversation with you, not a odd uneasy silence when you getting a trim. The price is worth every penny. $13 for a nice cut, $15 for a razor cut and a very affordable $5 for Beard trim. If you don't like this place it is most likely due to you wanting some 18 year old chicks chest in your face. I left early this morning from Lubbock, Tx. today just so I knew I'd make it here before they closed. EXCELLENT PLACE!
