Walking into Doug’s Barber Shop is like taking a trip back into the past.

Doug’s does things the old-fashioned way, offering great haircuts for low prices. You won’t find manicures or pedicures here, but most of the older clientèle do not want them anyway. What you will find are folks who want to give you a great haircut and shave.

Bellaire’s Original Barber Shop

5400 Bissonnet St.
Bellaire, TX 77401
(713) 665-9374

Bellaire’s Original Barber Shop is a place you might miss if you were driving down Bissonnet, but you won’t want to miss the traditional experience you can get there. This is one of the most popular places in town. It is highly recommended that you make a reservation because if you don’t, you could wait for more than an hour, or longer. The focus of the services at Bellaire’s Original Barber Shop is not on getting as many people through the door in a day as possible, it is on giving each customer the best possible service they can have.

Capone’s Barbershop And Shave Lounge

12357 Kingsride Lane
Houston, TX 77024

Capone’s Barbershop and Shave Lounge took over the old Kirby’s Barbershop location, and there have been many improvements made with this new site. This is the place to go if all you want is a shave and a haircut with a casual atmosphere where conversation reigns. Don’t think that this is just any regular barbershop where you go for a trim. The barbers at Capone’s up the ante when it comes to the services they provide. While others might offer a regular shave, Capone’s has hot lather shaves, or you can opt for the King’s shave, which includes a clay pack or steam facial at the end.
Best Little Barbershop In Texas
3823 Dunlavy St.
Houston, TX 77006
(713) 521-1944

Just the name of the Best Little Barbershop in Texas suggests that it is not the same place your grandfather might have gone to for a haircut. Inside, the atmosphere is easy and laid back. Its services include basic haircuts and shaves, but it also goes beyond these to include services demanded by modern males. There are chair and full-body massages available to rub away stress. For the metro in you, you can get a facial, manicure, pedicure, hair coloring or a facial waxing done.
