“The old world charm coupled with experienced barbers make this establishment the best place for a haircut anywhere in Houston.”
“And a great haircut means I will return to get one just like it.”
“The staff were friendly and while I was having my hair cut by an older gentleman that clearly takes immense pride in his work, two sets of little boys with their Mothers came in for what looked like their first Summer haircut.”
Best Haircut In Houston!!!!!!.
Finally.....A barber shop in Houston that feels, acts, and looks like a barber shop.
Doug and crew are as salt of the earth as it gets. If you are looking for a place that will take there time and cut your hair right then look no further. This barber shop still uses the straight razor to trim necks.....this is an art that is fading fast. Price of a cut....$10.00....Leonard will tell you "anything else is just too much". Make sure you don't ask for the "regular" haircut because "premium" is just .25 cents more.
A cherished memory..
This place is something out of a Norman Rockwell painting. That is until you walk in the joint! I don't think anything in the place was made after 1952! Every nook and cranny is stuffed with with some americana relic.
The staff is eclectic as the decor! My favorite is the brooding giant in the second chair with pechant for punk rock and social justice issues! Out of the 15 times or so I've been there he's never uttered a word to me! he just yells at the television as he cuts my hair. aside from his anti-social personality he's top notch! and you'll be lucky if it takes him more than 10 minutes to finish the job.
Perhaps the best $10 you will ever spend.
Like many people I am not finicky about my hair, however I am by no means apathetic. A good haircut to me is crafted in such a way that it will continue to look good until such a time as I need another. And a great haircut means I will return to get one just like it. Doug's is the new home to this routine. This place has every bit of charm to legitimize it as a great barber shop. Plus, the second you sit down, you know you are in skilled hands. I can't remember the last time I had a haircut for $10, especially one that looked this great. The neighborhood is friendly and a welcome change from the garish salons that you might normally have to endure to get a simple haircut from a highly competent cutter.
"The" barber shop of Houston's Heights.
Welcome to you new bi-monthly or weekly stop for a proper haircut. The old world charm coupled with experienced barbers make this establishment the best place for a haircut anywhere in Houston. The staff were friendly and while I was having my hair cut by an older gentleman that clearly takes immense pride in his work, two sets of little boys with their Mothers came in for what looked like their first Summer haircut. Yes, they had several toys to play with while they waited for their spin in the chair. With Mother's eye trained on every cut the barber made, even the seasoned professional would have shivering in their pants, but not these guys. They are top notch and pardon the pun, "a cut above the rest".
So if you're in the Heights and you need a good place to get a great haircut, swing by Doug's Barber Shop for what is sure to be your new barber for many years to come. - Alex Miller
Old Fashion Barber Shop.
Very good place, located in the heights it has the old neighborhood feel. Very quick and good quality. Highly reccommend. They are open a little bit later for individuals getting off work and are reasonably priced at 10$/haircut. The atmosphere looks like it has been around for 50 years.
