I travel a lot to major cities in the West Coast and one of the more important tasks in my to-do list is to find the best barbershop in the area, as getting a fine haircut in a fine setting elevates a gentleman's grooming experience under the hands of a master haircutter. I base my barbershop selection mainly on its crew's physical appearance and hair presentation (as I believe that one person is inclined to groom another in a manner similar to how he/she grooms himself/herself), in the kind of clientele the salon attracts (as I believe that the type of gentlemen getting groomed in a salon speaks volumes re the salon's reputation in the community), and in the salon's 'feel' (as I believe getting a haircut in a fine setting, as I stated earlier, elevates the experience). All there criteria are met, even exceeded, by the 5th Ave Barber & Salon. In the past, I mostly allowed men to cut my hair because I believed a man knew better how to groom another. But, after having my hair cut with grace and precision by a well-mannered lady barber named Dee Phan at the 5th Ave Barber & Salon, let me just say that that belief had been proven wrong. I now see lady barbers in a different light. Also, I appreciate owner Rick's warm welcome and our interesting conversation about the local scene. It is therefore with full confidence that I give 5th Ave Barber & Salon five stars for the stellar experience (and the fine haircut) it gave me.
If you want a first-class hair cut for an affordable price then Standing On Top is for you. I have been getting my hair cut from Mike for 10+ years and have never been disappointed with how my hair looks. Mike does a good job making you feel at home; there has not been a time when Mike or the other barbers have not greeted me or simply asked how I was doing. And this is not because I’m a long time customer, but because there is a genuine emphasis on customer service at Sanding On Top. I would not hesitate to refer this barber shop to any of my friends. Standing On Top will make you feel like YOUR standing on top.
Great old-fashioned haircuts in downtown Seattle at reasonable prices! No frills, two chairs, soft jazz playing in the background. I've been going there more than eight years, and have always had an enjoyable experience. Paul's my barber (He knows his way around my head), we talk and joke and laugh. Steve has such a great dry wit that you may not know why you're chuckling until you're out the door half a block away. Both are excellent at their work! Stewart St. - across from Macy's.
