Hands down the best barbershop and barbers that I have seen in a long time. They have convinced a cynic that there are still shops out there in the world where true expertise is still on display. The job Jerry does with my cut is nothing short of exceptional. I’m not going to lie, I can't remember how many years it is been since I left a barber feeling like my fade/edge/overall cut was that much on point, but Jerry has some skills. In fact, every barber that I have seen there are master craftsman. O’Neal and Gro$$ are so good at it that you can easily see why this place is called FadeMasters. Man, they will even give you a cut on a Sunday if you call them during the week to make an appointment, and I don’t think I have had that done since my Army days, when I was stationed “downrange.” So, not only would I recommend this place but I wish I could invest because when more people find out how good they are this place is going to stay pack.
We took our son here for his very first haircut after hearing about it from a friend. Such a good experience, Eddie went above and beyond what I had expected! Eddie starts by playing with our son and making sure he isn t scared of him. He gives him high fives, plays with his toes and talks to him like he must be a father himself. The cutting starts and Eddie is nice enough to make sure to save some hair for Mommy. Eddie then breaks out the clippers and I get a little worried, he lets Jackson touch them with his hands so he gets used to the vibrating and then just uses them to get a nice line on his sideburns and his neck line. Eddie then goes back in the back to get the certificate of babies first haircut and some tape to attach the lock of hair. We will definitely return here and it will now be the place my husband gets his haircut too. Only reason for 4 stars was it could have been cleaner, lots of hair on the floor.

Jennifer at Cuts & Shades of Color has been my hair artist for over a year now and I would recommend her services to all of my friends as well as those friends I've not met yet. Jennifer always takes extra time to make sure that I'm happy with both my highlights and haircut each time I go to visit her. Her talent is so amazing that I'd like to keep her as my little scret beauty expert, but on the other hand it would be unfair of me to not share her with all of San Antonio. So in my opinion she rates a 5 Star recommendation. Cuts & Shades of Color beauty shop is a small one but everyone there makes you feel like you are the next door neightbor droping by for coffee....very friendly and inviting atomshpere. Kuddos to Cuts & Shades of Color for having Jennifer as a stylist there. I'd rather fight than to switch my hairdresser.
over 20 years of his care and service from him and his staff with my hair has left me in a great search of someone that will take care of my grooming style of the old ways as he has...Ken is a great man and i have great respect for his skills..but most importantly was the fact that when u were a customer in one of his chairs you were not just a customer, but you became a part of his extended family! He took great pride in his work and thru out the many years his pride and care never would deviate . As for myself and some of my family we able to know Ken on a closer level. My family and I wish Ken and his family many wonderful blessings for the many many great years of service to this community...THANK YOU KEN AND FAMILY FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE!!!
Cozy relaxed environment. Very nice television on the wall. Less than "comfy" chair for my neck during a hot towel shave. The shave itself was enjoyable, certainly did a great job on the hot towel part. However, my sideburns were uneven, and there was still some areas I would prefer had more attention. Also, he had the television on local news that ended up clashing his politics with mine. So maybe if you are a conservative you would fit in here. If you are a healthy open minded liberal, maybe not so much. Eddie seemed like a great guy to talk to, but I will certainly try another location locally before I return promptly to spend the $$ again. It was $16 for a haircut, and $20 for a hot towel shave.
I am a return customer of the Image Gallery - was a client in the 80s & 90s - and was very happy to be able to return almost 2 years ago. Their service, knowledge and innovation has always exceeded my expectations. Raul is an artist - his expertise and knowledge in hair types, growth patterns and styles ensure a perfect cut every time. Patria is a color guru. And MaryLou is preeminent in her knowledge about hair care and health. Amazing professionals - each and every one of them! The beautiful hair and numerous compliments are definitley gratifying but it is their warm, always welcoming, treat you like family personalities that make every visit a treat.
The only reason I don't rate this Barber at 5 stars is for one reason and one reason only. The barber who calls himself Frank "The Godfather" is one of the most opinionated conspiracy theorist I have ever met. God forbid anyone makes a single negative comment about his opinion. It's a shame when someone can't make a single remark at a barbershop without being verbally attacked. I though a barber shop was a place for expression. Off the Top Barber Shop is not that place. If you want a great fade but don't mind sacrificing your opinion for 15 minutes then this barber shop is for you. Just make sure to ask for Mark or Anthony.
I brought my husband a gift certificate from New U Barber shop. He is very picky and doesn't like change. I was very surprise to hear that he loved his visit there... The stylist made him feel very comfortable and made sure he was satisfied with his haircut... He loved the hot towel and neck massage.... I would recommand this place to all the men in my family.... Sports, beer, hot towel and great customer service what else can you ask for... My husband has been back several times already and is always happy, which makes me happy to know he is being taken care!!!! Thanks New U for making my husband handsome again...... lol ;)
Man, I have been going to all kinds of Rio's & no one could give me a simple clean cut. I searched online & decided to go here just to try it and because its close to my apt. I was helped by Dan and I was finally satisfied! I finally found someone who just knew what to do. All I said was,"clean cut" for an interview and the dude was like,"alright". Just like that, a few min. later it was perfect all around. I mean even all around, real clean around the ears, he even got all the hair that grows low below my neck man! Dan is the man!! Guys out there listen to me you wont regret dudes.
