Every aspect of the way Russ works is clear indicator that the title on his business card ("World's Greatest Master Barber") is not overstated. As I don't travel the world and compare the results of other barbers, it's the "master" part of the King's Court experience I'll focus on. When I called Russ, I told him exactly what I was looking for: A straight razor shave and a hair trimming (I wear a full beard and longer hair). He immediately countered by telling me that though he could shave that way, history gave us the multi-blade razor for a reason. Operating under the impression that the straight razor provided the best results, I was flabbergasted and told him as much. He said something to the effect of, "Why not come in, let me shave you, and if you don't agree that it's the best, smoothest shave you've ever had, then it's on me". So I went, and I paid, and I tipped generously. And I'll continue to do so for as long as I remain in Cincinnati. Gory details of the experience aside, Russ's way of working (as well as his answers) represented his level of knowledge. Nothing short of a master, he noticed that my hair was thinning in several places, and then went on to relate his own experience with it, recommending the solution he used to me. He also explained, in detail, when and why he was using the tools he was using--and yes, at this point I was asking because he encouraged questioning during the shave. The shave exceeded my expectations, and the cherry on top was that he used a disposable razor to do it. Unsurprisingly, a precise combination of products, methods, and cleanup procedures all contributed to the end result he promised. He made a point of asking if I was satisfied, and pressed me for more detail when I insta-answered, "110%". To top it all off, he emphasized again and again how he likes to share as much of his knowledge and techniques with his customers so that they can handle their own grooming needs. Noble, sure, but his company alone is worth paying. This guy is the real deal. But don't take my word for it, go in and see for yourself. And if you're not satisfied with his work, he won't let you pay him. We're talking about a man who operates on "pay me for a job done right", not "pay me for my time".

Similar to Great Clips but a little more pricey. Still a decent haircut at a reasonable price. The wait was very short. No appointment needed.

Not only do the ladies know what they are doing, but they are very funny,laid back and they make you feel like you belong. I liked going into a place that was a nice small hometown salon in such a big city and being able to get the styles that are still in the big city. Everyone joins in the conversations and its just like one big happy family. Getting my hair done and being comfortable is big with me. I don't think I will go anywhere else now!
Family owned business- Ray made me feel very welcomed. I wasn't able to stay in Indianapolis for the Superbowl so I settled for Cincy, not disappointed though. After my team lost, I decided to eat a buffet and get a haircut. Haircut was unbelievable and the whole family was there to butter me up. They even gave me a lithogram of Cromsley Field. You owe it your head, heart and mind to visit them! 5 Deserving Stars!
