Dollar Barber Shop

    I was raised by a barber…a good one. My pops is the barber that teaches barbers how to be barbers; so I know a good cut. They’re hard to find. And near impossible for 5 dollars. Thank god for this place.

    The Dollar Barber Shop is managing to pull off the “old-school barber shop” feel that spots in New York and San Francisco are trying to duplicate now…without the effort. The interior is an eclectic mix of garage-sale-finds that works; a mash-up of mid-century modern and old-school classroom furniture. Even the cutting chairs are mismatched in a good way. And then there’s Greg. He’s the guy that made me a loyal customer. I like my cuts high and tight, and Greg wields a pair of clippers like an artist. It took me years to find him, and I’m still hesitant to share him. He’s that good.

    I chatted with the owner, who told me that when they opened, cuts were just $2…then $3…then $4…and now $5. So, basically, this place is inflation-proof. Drop in and get the cheapest cool-barber-shop experience Salt Lake’s got.
