Here’s what to expect when you book our men’s haircut service:
- Style consultation: we’ll start by briefly discussing the look you’d like. Feel free to bring a reference photo, or if you’re not sure which style you want, just tell us your main goal such as adding volume to thinning hair or having a style that’s as low-maintenance as possible.
- Shampoo and condition: there’s no need to wash your hair immediately before you visit our salon; we’ll do that for you! Using our favorite Oribe or R+Co products designed for your hair type, we’ll get it squeaky clean and ready to style.
- The haircut: the transformation starts here! Based on the hairstyle you’ve chosen, your stylist will shape your hair either by a scissor cut or with clippers, or a mix of both.
Blowout: the finishing touch to your new look. Your stylist will dry your hair to enhance your new style (such as shaping it upwards or backwards), and then you’ll be ready to step out onto the street looking slick and polished.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a men’s haircut cost?
Whether you’re getting a long or short men’s haircut, our price is $40, which also includes a shampoo, condition, and style-enhancing blowout.
What is a traditional men's haircut?
That depends on your definition of traditional. Besides the buzz cut – a fuss-free, military-style look where the hair is cut very close to the head all over – most popular men’s haircuts are some variation of a ‘short back and sides’, where the hair tapers from being longer at the top to shorter at the back and sides of the head.
If the hair at the top is cut to an inch or less, short enough that it sticks up straight, that’s called a crew cut. Or, you can keep it a little longer and add a side part for an elegant, classic men’s haircut look that’s the perfect balance of formal and casual.
If by ‘traditional’ you mean timeless looks worthy of a gentleman, how about a pompadour? This eye-catching variation keeps the top extra long, which is then combed back away from the face. Or you could opt for the slightly shorter quiff, which can be styled either perfectly coiffed or in a more ‘rough and ready’ way. For both the pompadour and the quiff, you’ll need a product such as gel or pomade to give the hair an attractive shape.
What is the most popular men's haircut for a modern look?
What is the most popular haircut for guys who want something fresh and head-turning? Undercuts have surged in popularity in the past few years, and though they’re not a brand new invention (think Peaky Blinders), they’re bold enough that they stand out and look ultra-contemporary regardless. An undercut is an extreme variation on a short back and sides, where the top is fairly long and sides are razed right down to a buzz cut-like length, creating a dramatic contrast with a sudden change from short to long, instead of a more gradual transition.
Alternatively, you could try the caesar. This low-profile (and low-maintenance) men’s hairstyle is defined by a short, horizontal bang across your forehead, combined with a short back and sides.
How often does the average man get a haircut?
For many short men’s haircuts, a trip to the salon every 4-6 weeks is all that’s needed to maintain the style, and even less frequently for hairstyles that are long all over.
However, styles that center around very short hair on some or all of the head, such as undercuts and buzz cuts, won’t look quite so dramatic and cool once the hair starts growing back, so expect to be back at the salon every 2-3 weeks for a touch-up.
If regular haircuts are low on your list of priorities, our stylists will be happy to advise on styles that stay looking great for longer, or potentially even improve as they grow out!
