Give Razors a try. Having lived in big cities all of my adult life, including the last ten years in Washington, DC, I was struggling to find a good haircut in Richmond with the kind of service I appreciate. I found it at Razors. Yes, the staff is all women and they are friendly (duh, what is wrong with that for a grooming salon targeting men)? I don't mind the flirting and in fact for a middle-aged man it was kind of nice. Getting your hair cut or other grooming services should be a relaxing experience with good results. You'll get both at Razors, so lighten up and enjoy.
captain obvious would not be attending.
A salon which has been open less than 2 years and cannot maintain any employees except the one which tampers the salon image is the first tell-tale sign of "problem"
Upscale is defined as something of elegance, and high quality. Clipper haircuts, cheap beer and hair products that can be purchased at a grocery store are the key components in unmasking the true atmosphere that is Razors... chintzy.
The leather chairs and flat screen television are a great addition to any waiting area, however getting stuck spending more time in a waiting chair instead of a barber chair is an issue that arises when staff is never on time for appointments- and it's not because they're busy cutting hair, either.
The straight razor shaves are a charming service there, but they do not even sell the nice badger brushes or straight razors in which they use- which is odd.
Multiple 4-star reviews were written within days of Razors finding out about the bad ones and attempting to save face, and who can blame them for not wanting to further tarnish their "upscale" image with the truth?
Some stylists have found a niche market at a salon catering to men. Certain men. It is curious if their level of professionalism or skill would suffice in other workplaces.
But niche markets work to a degree, and so some men do enjoy their time at Razors.
It is always a shame when the overall negative image heavily outweighs any of the positives that could bring Razors into becoming the salon it wants to portray itself as being.
Honestly, Razors just wasn't for me or my husband. We walked in one day and were simply mortified by the lack of professionalism in this salon. When we walked in, we had to wait fifteen minutes for the receptionist to finally get ahold of one of the stylist who were all across the street at the bar. One of the older ladies there, who was the manager on duty had her bra halfway hanging out of her dress, and spoke as if she was completely strung out. Empty beer bottles were all over the bar, and from all the gnats flying around, I'm guessing they had been there for a while. We decided to leave and go to another salon around the corner.
As a woman, I would never want my husband going into a place that is so tasteless, and unclassy. I do not recommend this place at all. There are plenty of other salons and spas that are less than 10 minutes away that are much better, and where you dont have to worry about some trashy lady hanging all over your husband.
Best in Richmond. I found Virginia at Razors. I had problems before with my stylist at another salons.. I made it my goal to find out where Virginia was now cutting hair. I got all super sleuth and wasn't going to give up! Thanks to Google I found her and Razors! And man it was just in time! My badly tattered locks were in desperate need of some TLC. She cuts with shear precision, has an expert eye for my face shape, I highly recommend her to everyone who inquires about who I see to tame my locks. Go see Virginia and you won't be disappointed! Oh, and if Virginia not vaialable try Donna; she gets a solid 10+++ on the styling scale -- so either way you win.
Super Place & Excellent Service. Hey, This place is great .... upscale, great location (in theSlip), nice interesting/attractive staff, hair cuts, massage, shines, manicures, comp. beer/wine ... what else do you what? I've been a memebr since early 2007 and I've very happy with Razors ....
A worhwhile experience..
It is 2:30 on a Sunday and my first experience at Razors. It was very positive. First of all the ladies that are here today are here because they want to learn how to better cut hair and more effectively serve particular gentlemen.
The gentlemen that was instructing the ladies today has over 65 years of experience cutting hair and with his partners and seminars back in the 50's, 60's and 70's, has taught over 20,000 barbers the proper way to give professional razor cuts. Marty is a gentleman and a perfectionist.
While Marty is my friend and barber of over 10 years, he is in fact a gentleman's barber.
What makes Razor's unique is the atmosphere, the location across from the Richbrau and the ladies.
We all need haircuts, however it is nice to have a massage, razor cut and special treament on occasion.
It is easy for somebody to smear someone else. However, did you ever ask yourself what would motivate someone to bad mouth another person? Could it be malice or financial?
Try Razor's. You will like it and if by chance it is not your cup of tea, just do not go back.
I am happier for my experiece.
Beyond a good haircut. Not sure what the other people were drinking when they wrote these reviews. Not only do you get quality haircuts, you get a great hot towel treatment and straight razor neck shave. They're always accomidating with any additional requests even when you're picky like me. I was referred here by my boss who was a long time customer and I've sent several other people to Razors. Don't like to be called honey or sweetie? What are you like 60 and raised in a barn? The extra attention they provide makes this a exceptional salon experience. I hate to see a quality local establishment get bashed by people that obviously lack class.
Vulgar and tasteless.
As I wrote on Google's reviews, this place has a tasteless atmosphere to it. The female staff takes too many liberties with its all-male clients. Every time I have gone in Razors, I get pinched, winked at, and called honey and sweety.
I am sure some of the clients enjoy this, but if I wanted this kind of experience, I would go to Club Velvet, the strip club down the street from Razors.
you get what you pay for???. At first glance you think this is going to be an above average barber shop. But moments into my visit i realized that this was nothing more than a cheap imitation of a "upscale" shop. The website brags that the stylist have been trained in NY and Miami, however their knowledge and skills are that of any fresh out of beauty school student. I had heard from a friend that this place gave good hair cuts and overall excellent service,however i received a hair cut from a Lady, in her 40's, that looked to be either strung out on coke or had just had a rough life. She reeked of stale cigarettes and couldn't hold an intelligent conversation to save her life. The only bright side, was drinking my "complimentary" beer. I do not recommend this "high quality" salon. Unless you want to pay far to much for an average haircut from an averagely skilled woman that needs rehab.
