Pete’s Barber Shop 2873 N Elston Ave Chicago IL 60618 What makes this place one of the best barber shops in Chicago is unique laidback atmosphere; you can play Xbox while waiting your turn, or have a beer or coffee. No appointment needed — or accepted, Pete's is a cash-only barber shop that will run you about $25 or $10 for beard trimming; $30 for straight razor shaves. Joe’s Barber Shop 2641 W Fullertone Avenue Chicago, IL 60647 Joe’s Barber Shop was founded in 1968, maintaining high barber shop standards ever since. It's even been voted “Best Barber Shop” by Chicago Readers in previous six years.

From May to September, don’t miss one of Hangover Shave Parties (last Sunday of the month). Chicago’s Best Barber Shop Logan Square 2318 N California Ave Chicago, IL It's more for those looking to create art with their hair. Razor artisans can carve precise graphics or mohawks into your head, but they will give you a regular haircut for about $15 — although they probably won't enjoy it as much. The atmosphere is relaxed, the tunes are good, and there's a pool table to keep you busy while your wait. Hit them up on Facebook if you want more info — they don't have a website.
