Don't go to this barbershop if you're Black... – ...they flat out refused to cut my hair. The reason they cited was "We don't cut that kind of hair here." It's one thing to not be trained to cut a Black person's hair, but it's an entirely different thing to lose all tact and professionalism and say something like that. If you're looking for a good, old fashion barbershop, go to The Wooten on Guadalupe. This place is about as lame as it gets.
Austins Best Barber – I have been a customer of Pete's Flattop Shop for over 17 years or longer and wouldn't go anywhere else. Phillip is my barber and he cuts a great flattop and always makes me look my very best. I would highly recommend any of the barbers at Pete's as they are all fantastic at their trade. They also cut the best flattop in Texas hands down. I like my flattop tight and thats what I always get. They also do regular and razor cuts as well and do a great job but flattops is their game.
arm and a leg – great hair cuts the most friendliest guys, but can only afford three times a year
Old school barber shop - Great cut, low on ambiance - which is perfect – So I have been going to salons for years - here in Austin after 4-5 mediocre cuts I settles on Bradz ($45). We she left after 8 months and the 3 new folks I tried their just kept doing worse and worse. Went to Avant ($60) and as a man I can appreciate a good cut but seriously my hair is less than an inch long sixty bucks is just ridiculous.
Went to Flyod's ($19) but the stylists were inconsistant. Decent cut but grew in odd every time. I finally realized...who cut my hair best - guys in a barber shop!
Pete's FTS ($17) did not dissapoint. Open 8am to 3 or something 4 days a week...I got there at9am on Saturday and got right in the chair with Phil. Great guy, in fact all 3 of them were really friendly and funny. FYI Pete has been their since 1968. Most the furniture looks that old too but you know what - we're men! Who cares! Stop being so metro and get a man cut!
I went for the medium Ivy league (a cut from my past) and it looks stellar. My wife loves it. Frankly it is the best cut I have had in years. And Phil is the first person to listen to me when I said how long I wanted it...I'm not saying women don't listen...but they don't! ha.
Great cut, good guys and a super price.
Best Haircuts in Central Texas – If you want an old fashion men's taper cut or a classic flat top, you won't find a better place in Texas. Oscar (third chair from the door) is especially gifted at creating the perfect flat top. Just tell him short, medium or long; he'll do a bald fade on the sides or a classic taper -- just tell him; All four barbers cut superb traditional men's cuts, but the flat top is their specialty and no inferior cuts walk out the door. You can't go wrong!
Great Traditional Barbershop – I've been all over town trying to get a good, consistent flat top, but Pete's is the only place I've found so far that'll do it right. Admittedly, I haven't tried all of the more storied barbers in the area, but I'm tired of looking.
It's a 30 minute drive from Round Rock, but I'll take it every three weeks - any one of the four guys there will set you up right!
Downside - bring cash - they won't take anything else.
