Denver is known as a laid-back city with plenty of bars and restaurants, access to the outdoors, breweries, and pipes filled with legal weed. What’s not to love? And if you find yourself in the Mile High City in need of a haircut (okay, or manicure or pedicure), these are some of the best barbers in the area.
Ollie’s Barber Shop
616 E Kentucky Ave
Ollie’s puts customers first and attracts new patrons with a relaxed atmosphere. Their specialty is classic haircuts and hot razor shaves that start at $25 for a cut and $40 for straight razor shave. Toss in $5 to get your beard trimmed and styled. Bring cash.
Chopz Men’s Salon
611 Grant Street
Other than a haircut you can get a massage and waxing (eyebrows, chest, shoulders, and back). It’s a cool looking space – as in, SuperCuts it ain’t — and the prices are affordable: a cut for $28; a hot towel face shave for $25; and a beard trim for only $5.
Semion Barber Shop For All
507 Lincoln St.
It’s not just one of the best barber stores in Denver, it also has a cool story. It was founded by two immigrant brothers who built a successful business. Situated in Golden Triangle, they welcome everybody from kids to old hippies; walk-in or make an appointment (up to 4 days in advance). The waiting area is equipped with iPads. Prices: $23 for a cut (kids are cheaper); $26 for face or head shave.
GQ Barber Lounge
1605 17th Street
Think of it as an upscale salon for men — and we mean that with no stigma attached. Get a manicure, pedicure, facial, or waxing for an extra cost after you shell out $42 cut. Still, the experience might be worth your while (and the extra coinage).
600 S. Holly Street
It has an old-school feel with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly barbers. Besides a haircut ($17) and shave ($25), you can get facials, tonics, scalp massage, as a shoe shine. Walk-in only.
4347 Tennyson St
Along with being hair pros, at Spruce they’re also style pros. They offer various services including clothing and accessory shop, style consults, and specific shaving procedures. The prices are still reasonable at $28 for a haircut and $20 for a shave.
