Lost my previous stylist to retirement. Decided to return to my roots and searched for a neighborhood male tonsorial master, like Red's Barbershop in the Normal/Buntyn neighborhood growing up near Memphis State before it became University of Memphis and flattened Red's old place into a parking lot. But I digress. Did a web search and realized I have been driving by Blackstone's current location since the 1980's and never noticed. So I gave Mr. Blackstone a try. He did not chop my hair, but deftly clipped and trimmed, quickly and efficiently and hot lather/straight razor trim. Reasonable price of $16, did not have time for a full package of shampoo, cut, shave and trim beard similarly priced, but plan to. The experience was as I expected. Mr. Blackstone is a Master of not only tonsorial arts, but a personable conversationalist, w/a mature eclectic taste in music.
Chris and Raymond are far most the best barbers in Memphis. They take the time to cut your hair right and the way you want it. The barber shop is always clean and in order. The conversations are always clean and the people are always nice. Razor Sharp Barber Shop is a good place for single moms to bring their sons and a great place for dads and sons to spend time together getting their haircuts.
I never have to make an appointment... I can just walk in and my barber is ready for me! I don't have to wait long hours there. All the barbers are polite and to me. I tell my friends this is where they should be to get a haircut or anything else for the low.
