great cut, great barber
By giopatra on 4/12/2008
I went in today with pretty long messy hair and came out with a tight whole new look. I also got a little clipper dseign. In the end it came out to a reasonable $28. The head barber Mr.Bee was a nice guy and he did a great job cutting my hair. The place is more than i had expected. I definitely plan to visit again once my hair grows back.
A funky joint in the LES
By 2dwell on 2/27/2008
Had a cut and a shave for $45 w/ Fritz. He gave me a great cut and a decent shave... a few knicks though and my 1.5 days growth had him sweating. Great environment and unpretencious...I'll go back.
RE: Suspect Pricing
By SirFrank on 7/19/2007
Sir Frank here wanting to clear a few things up. The Chop Shop has several haircut prices and several barbers. A longer hairstyle (all scissor work, crazy texture) will run you 35.00, while a shorter regular cut (some clipper work) will run you 25.00. A plain old buzz or ceaser will come in at 20.00. Although we try to keep everyone on the same page, one barber may not know what another barber charged you on a previous visit. This can be cleared up simply by bringing the price difference to your barber or the cashier's attention. We apologize for any misunderstandings.
Consistency is an issue
By Dio on 6/21/2007
They give a good cut at Frank's, but the pricing is a bit suspect. I've been twice. The first time I received great services including a good cut, razor treatment to the back of the neck, and a polite barber - all for $25. On the second visit, the barber was 30 minutes behind, no razor and it was readily apparent that the barber was in a hurry. The cut was decent, not as good as the first, and at a new price of $35. This level of service consistency isn't appealing or worth $35, in my opinion.
the only barbershop i've ever been to that was playing the smiths
By olliedog on 12/4/2006
really amazing space. good cut. young barbers and a hot cashier. i heard about this place and was worried it'd be a bit to hip hop, but i was pleasantly suprised to hear the smiths, while i was getting a cut.
