this shop is an old fashion type barbershop and they do a good job at all types of cuts. i have been to this barbershop a few times recently, 3 or 4 barbers cut hair here. jim the owner is retired military and is really good with military and short type cuts. i have had both joe and john give me a haircut recently and they are both do a really good job - they really want to give you a good haircut. my most recent haircut here was with john, who usually works one of the back chairs in the shop. joe works the first chair near the door. the day i went both john and joe were working, and there was no wait. i got in john's barber chair, he threw a black barber cape around me, and we discussed how to cut it - i wanted a regular trim with a decent part. he told me how he takes pride in his haircuts, and wet my hair down with a water spray, and began barbering me up with some cutt'in and combing for about 10 minutes or so, until he had the length about right. he then groomed me up with trimming my eyebrows and nose hair (which most places don't bother doing), and using some creamy stuff in my hair that made it look real neat, help keep a clean part, and make it comb up easy. he used warm shaving cream and a regular razor to shave the back of my neck and around my ears, and used some good smelling aftershave that felt cool and refreshing - had the clean-cut look. he finished it up with a little more trimming and combing it up real neat looking. i got up out of the chair after about 20 min,, looking really neat, feeling refreshed and smelling good - my haircut was definitely an example of john's pride in his work. this barbershop is conveniently located on michigan ave, parking is available in front of the shop, and the shop is open from 8-5 mon thru fri. and also 8-5 on sat. and sunday, so a haircut here can fit into your schedule. the haircut stayed really good looking until my next haircut, was easy to comb up and i got several compliments on how good it looked - was definitely girl-friend approved, here's the real deal - the cost was only $10. i would highly recommend this barbershop, if you want a really good regular length haircut, get john or joe, i guarantee they will do ya'up right.
I have VERY curly hair and when I moved to Pensacola a few months ago I was dreading the long and horrible process of finding someone who can handle my unruly hair. I had heard of the Ouidad process for cutting curly hair and so I looked up salons that were certified to do this in the area and Self Salon popped up so I made an appointment. From the moment I walked in, I was treated like a queen--the staff was fun and friendly and made me feel very welcome. They did a deep conditioning treatment and then Pam did the Ouidad cut. She took her time and worked very carefully even though my hair is super thick. My hair has never felt this luxurious. It is managable and the curls are soft, yet defined. Believe me when I say that Pam worked a MIRACLE with my coarse, curly hair. I will proudly recommend this salon to friends and strangers alike! Do not hesitate to make an appointment here--it is worth every penny!
Not sure what's up with all these terrible reviews of Kristi's Barber Shop. My husband has been a customer for years and loves Kristi, Heather, Sandra and the shop. The best haircut he has ever had has come from Kristi's. We started taking our little boys there when they were old enough to need cuts. They love going. The barbers are very sweet and patient with them. There are toys there for them to play with while they wait and treats for them to enjoy while getting their cuts. They get the best looking little boy cuts and I am totally pleased. I highly recommend this shop, especially for a man needing a squared away military cut.
