    I had a great experience! Everyone was friendly, the atmosphere was fun, and good music played in the background while I got great haircut.

  • *****

    Great environment. Friendly staff. Best haircut I've had. Worth an hour drive to go there

  • *****

    I have a cowlick that always gives barbers a problem, but Artur has managed to get it right. I am happy to have found him. He does a great job on my hair. Artur's shop is always friendly and clean.

  • *****

    Everyone that works there makes you feel comfortable. If you're looking for beard oil, the search is over.

    I am in the process of looking for a new Barber and I took a shot at Arthur's. Where a women named Mercy was in charge of making me look my best, and boy did she! I have really thick complicated hair but Mercy made it her own and really gave me a personalized feel. She is a very talented Hair Stylist and I would highly recommend her to anybody looking for a new barber! I had never bee lined up or even went to the skin on my low fade, but I did it with Mercy and it is safe to say it is one of the best haircuts ive ever received!!

  • *****

    What a great first time experience going to a barber shop! Both Artur and Mercy were really hospitable the whole time and Mercy gave me one of the best cuts I’ve ever gotten in my life. Really changed how I look at my personal hygiene and hair style. Thank you and you guys got yourselves a long time customer.

  • *****

    Great shop with a very hip, yet old time vibe! I cannot judge the other barbers, but Artur is, in my opinion, a true artiste. Cash only, and no reservations, but you'll be very happy with the results...

  • *****

    This place is a gem and reminiscent of the great barber shops of nyc and now LA. Artur cut my hair and his attention to detail and pride in his work was impeccable and was literally smiling the whole time. The place itself is beautiful - all in all, you can tell this is a place that prides itself on its art craft.

  • *****

    Artur is the best! I just moved in the area so I was so happy to find a expert barber so close to home! (I would travel to have Artur cut my hair) He listened to how I wanted my hair cut. He does the best fade I ever had! In fact he's the fade master!! The shop is very clean and bright ! Artur takes his time and never rushes-even when the shop gets really busy. He really does a great job! I'm very hard to please when it comes to my hair and I was very pleased with Artur's haircut!

    I plan on making Artur my barber for a very long time. Louis

    Artur is as real as it gets, a great haircut, fair price and he's always listening. He will stop mid haircut to ask me if I like, and or if he should change anything. He is one of those barbers that just enjoys his work. I have been going to Artur's since I came to college at Loyola U.C and he's never given me a reason to no come back. If you're on the fence about him, I hope this review changes your mind because he really is worth it.

    Best barber in the city. Arthur is a really cool guy and his staff is friendly. It’s also really close to the train and a bunch of places to hang out while you wait for your haircut.

  • *****

    Great barber that does not rush you just to get more customers. Artur is exactly what you want from a local barber. Friendly, clean, and sociable. After trying a few places all throughout Chicago, Artur was a welcomed finding because he delivers exactly the cut you want and offers insight into how to make the cut better.

    Excellent haircuts, very nice shop, and awesome barber! Thanks! Definitely coming back!

  • *****

    Artur is the best. We found him when we first moved to the area earlier this year and my boyfriend needed a place to get his hair cut. Shop is small but beautiful and clean.

    He was so impressed that even when it got busy, he never felt like Artur sped up and tried to get him out of the chair and on to the next customer.

    Highly recommend.

  • *****

    Easily the barber experience I’ve had in my 38 years of haircuts.
    Johnny is truly talented, best fade I’ve had no bull.

  • *****

    Best barber shop I have been to since I moved to Chicago 4 years ago.

  • *****

    Artur never lets me down! He’s got some sharp skills. The place looks really nice too. Great barber shop

    Artur never lets me down! He’s got some sharp skills. The place looks like really nice too. Great barber shop

  • *****

    Another perfect cut from Johnny! Best in the biz and always perfect attention to detail.

  • *****

    Artur is so good I travel 10 miles to see him. A super nice guy and a great haircut at a reasonable price!

  • *****

    Aways a pleasure.

  • *****

    Artur is awesome.

  • *****

    Great service!

  • *****

    Been gettting cuts from Artur for maybe a year now...always a class act and even classier cut! I would drive a fair distance for this guys skill and attention to detail.

  • *****

    Very small place, but that's a good thing. I walked in, sat for a few minutes, and got a great haircut from Arturo. The price was reasonable, too. I found my new favorite barber shop.

  • *****

    Johnny crushes the fade, best in the city! Always a fresh cut, and the aftershave finish is a nice mood booster that carries you out feeling fresh.

  • *****

    I recently started to going to Artur's as my barber, Johnny, who has cut my hair for the last 3 years recently moved locations. Let me say that regardless of where he cuts, he does a phenomenal job. If you are looking for a barber who takes the time to give you a right haircut and understands what you are looking for then Johnny is your guy. It's rare for someone to follow a barber after moving locations but he really does an outstanding job. I highly recommend heading to Artur's if you are reading this and signing up to get your cut from Johnny

  • *****

    First time here! I’ve been going to same barbershop for 15 years! Came here on a chance and left super happy! No one likes to gamble with a barber they don’t know but Johnny is worth the try. Will be back!!!!!

  • *****

    Came here for the first time & the place is great!
    Johnny gave a great haircut & fade.
    This is a great barbershop for Edgewater.
    Super clean set-up & is located in a easy to access spot.
    Definitely come here if you are from the area.

  • *****

    Amazing experience! Artur and Jon are both super nice and did some super quality work. Definitely coming back!

  • *****

    Great service and great products for sale! So glad they are local and friendly

  • *****

    I just want to say that Artur is truly amazing, being African American I was skeptical about getting my hair cut,but let me say that this man gave me exactly what I wanted and he's a very pleasant and funny barber,thank you Artur you have a new client!

  • *****

    Artur, the shop's owner, is truly an artisan. He takes his time and always gives a precise, clean cut that I can't get anywhere else. The whole experience is pleasant, from the smell of the talcum power he uses, to the hot towels he puts on your face before a straight razor shave. This is my favorite barber shop out of the 3 or 4 shops I have tried in the area. I have been coming here since it has opened, and will go out of my way to do so.

    The pacing of the haircut and Artur's "chair side" manner is very professional and refined, and adds a lot to the experience as well. I get my hair cut more often than I need to simply because it's relaxing, and I feel good when my hair looks great.

    Once and only once I was not 100% happy with my hair cut. I went back two days later and Artur fixed me up, and he refused to take any money for the clean up. He is a great guy and even better barber. If you need a cut, a shave or a beard trim on the north side, Artur's is THE place to go.

    Edit: My fiance LOVES the way he trims my beard. Gentlemen, getting a hair cut at Artur's is an easy way to look good for the ladies. :-)

  • *****

    First time there. This is a great place. Clean fun and I got a great haircut. Victor took the time to listen to what I wanted and put his own style on it. I very happy with the results. Will definitely be back.

  • *****

    Highly recommend going to Artur’s for a great haircut. I went in with no expectations and walked away very impressed. Artur takes the time to really listen and provide great customer service.

  • *****

    Excellent barber cuts, friendly comfortable atmosphere, and at the end you get a hot towel on the neck to boot! I have comple trust in Artur’s clippers, scissors, and razor. He is very skilled and understands how to shape your cut with the natural pattern of your hair.

  • *****

    Best experience ever!! Artur did great job with my haircut and beard trim. Very nice shop. Clean and you feel relaxing.
    All barbers are good but Owner Artur is my guy.
    For sure I will back!!!

  • *****

    Always an inviting atmosphere, the owner and his assistant Barber are just wonderful to have a conversation with. Always exit out looking sharp and ready to go.

  • *****

    artur know his stuff. does clipper cuts but also for those of us who likes a traditional cut...well...he is highly skilled at both...the woman who works with him is also wonderful so you will be in good hands with either. 24 bucks plus a tip is a bargain. only takes walk ins. great find!

  • *****

    If you're looking for a talented barber, outstanding customer service, added touches like hot towels, straight razor shave, and a barber who takes great care to get your hair and/or beard as close to perfect as possible, then look no further. Artur's is the place to go.

    I highly recommend Artur, you will not be disappointed!

  • *****

    Me: I need a haircut and would like a local place.

    My brain: Yelp it, duh.

    Me: I'll Yelp it.

    Yelp, Yelp, ah-ha!

    Me: Calls Artur's, he answers and is welcoming and gives me the deets about his barber shop. I think the price sounds perfect and the reviews looks solid.

    Me: get cash (cash only and ATMs plenty by the barber shop), and write my name on barbershop board to mark my place in line. Watch a little TV while waiting and notice Artur giving a haircut to someone who happens to also do hair (but at a different shop) and who is talking about how awesome Artur is. As I wait, I'm feeling good about my choice to come here as another professional is giving great reviews while getting his hair cut.

    Artur asks for my thoughts on what I'd like for my hair. I explain. Artur gets going and checks in with me as he cuts away, and we have friendly conversation. Hair's looking good and I'm feeling comfortable with my picking of Artur's shop. Haircut over, bam! Looking so awesome and Artur definitely showcased his expertise and knowledge of hair. As he cut my hair, I felt like he was sculpting a fine work of art, buzzng, cutting, trimming, and examining finely along the way to ensure perfection and satisfaction.

    That was in fall last year and I've been going back ever since. I'm telling you, this gentleman knows how to masterfully work with your hair and runs a great shop. At first, I was hesitant that the first time he would do his best to get you coming back but he is consistent, treating your every visit with the best skills, service and awesomeness you expect. Also, I used to go to a shop where you could reserve a spot online which was very convenient but got burdensome. I thought it would be hard to adjust to Artur's barber shop approach of signing your name on the board for your turn, but I appreciate the return to being patient and waiting, if needed, since there is a tv and it feels like a real barber shop experience. Call me nostalgic, but that stuff is awesome.

    Artur's shop also has great products for your hair and beard needs but he doesn't push them on you even though he has a wealth of knowledge on the products and hair care. He is a true barber professional and great business owner, a gem in the Edgewater neighborhood and worth traveling to for your barbershop needs.

  • *****

    There is no comparison with any other barber, Artur is the best. I have known Artur now for 2 years at least. I only requested him when he was working at the other shop before he opened his own. Going today for a cut!

  • *****

    Artur is amazing! Extremely nice and professional. I wont get my cut anywhere else now!

  • *****

    The place is small, two barbers, Elena did my husband's haircut and for the first time we both are happy, she did an amazing job!! She listened to what my husband wanted and what my concerns were from other haircuts he got on previous places he went before, she took her time, the haircut came up way better than we expected, she shaved the neck, hot towel, after shave ant topped it of with a scalp massage, really great service, that's his barber shop!!!!
    Plus they CLEAN between clients!! Isn't that awesome

    Definitely recommend this place, specially Elena, although we haven't tried Artur yet but hey great place, no doubt he's great too

  • *****

    Artur is a friendly , personable guy. Nice shop. On the small side. He does good business so be prepared to wait. No appointments. My haircut is the best. Great job.Will definitely return.

  • *****

    Been going to Artur since his prior place of employment , which was good, but I went there cause of Artur. Artur takes his time to get it right and not rush a cut to get you out of his chair.

    It's worth the wait when you have to wait and will be awesome to watch him add other barbers.

  • *****

    I popped in for a shave (first time ever) and hair cut. Wow, the shave was a real treat. Hot towel, face massage and more. The hair cut, super tight, clean lines. I just keep talking about it. I'll definitely be going back!

  • *****

    Artur is great barber! He has been cutting my hair for years and I will never go to anyone else. He truly cares how my hair and beard looks and takes the time to do it right. His attention to details is amazing and I always gets tons of compliments after each visit. Artur himself is a great guy, fun to talk to, and I'm always comfortable in his shop.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • *****

    Best haircut I've ever had. I will never go anywhere else, thanks Artur!

  • *****

    From the moment I walked in to Artur's barbershop I knew I have found a great barber. Artur welcomed me in to his barbershop and gave me a great haircut and trimmed my beard so nicely. He has always been very professional and you can tell he enjoys what he does. He doesn't take appointments but he will leave looking sharp!

  • *****

    I have been going to Artur's since he opened this summer. I have never had the care and attention that I receive at this clean and calm space. The warm and cold face wraps and warm shaving cream straight Razer shave are such a great touch.
    I always get the bald fade and beard trim. It is a barber shop and a close cut is what they specialize in, as well as a slow paced personalized attention to detail.

  • *****

    Today was my first time at Artur's Barber Shop. I wasn't able to go to my regular barber, and after reading the great reviews I decided to try out Artur. When i got there, I was seated right away and told Artur exactly what I wanted for my haircut and beard trim/line up. He did everything I asked and everything turned out great! He is a very nice guy and made me feel very comfortable. There is also a lady barber that works there, and she was so sweet and pleasant! The location is awesome as it is right off of the Bryn Mawr Red Line L stop and 84 Peterson bus stop. Overall, I highly recommend Artur's Barber Shop!

  • *****

    He knows what he's doing and is very nice and responsive. Easy to get to location, just off the Red Line. Definitely worth it! I'll continue to stop in for all of my hair cuts.

  • *****

    Must see this guy. He does great work. Conveniently located on Bryn Mawr and Broadway right off the Red Line.

  • *****

    I have been going to Artur for about 2 years now to get my hair cut and I have yet to be disappointed. Based on the compliments I’ve received from others on my haircuts, I know he must be doing something right!
    He’s friendly and will genuinely ask questions because he’s interested in how my life is going. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

  • *****

    About time Artur opened his own shop. Best barber I've ever had!

  • *****

    Artur listened and asked questions, and then took charge of my crazy curly hair and beard. Great haircut and beard trim. Will definitely be going here again!

  • *****

    Fantastic job! After my first haircut, I can finally say that I found my new barber.

  • *****

    Great job with my fade and beard trim. Nice guy too. I was super nervous about trying a new place since I just moved here, but glad I gave it a go. Very pleased with the results. FYI bring cash.

  • *****

    I usually went to another barber down the street that almost all my friends go to. Artur's was closer and I figured I'd try it. SO glad I did. A much better job of listening to what I wanted, straight razor shave, hot towels, the whole nine yards. It was great. A little more expensive, but worth every frigging penny. I have a new barber now.

  • *****

    Artur is an excellent barber who goes above and beyond the regular service. His attention to detail and willingness to take the time to satisfy the customer is what truly separates him from the typical barbershop. His new barbershop is super clean and very conveniently located.

  • *****

    Artur is a great barber. He listened to what I wanted. Straight razor shave of neck, and a hot towel. Awesome service!

  • *****

    Found my barber

  • *****

    Great cut, shave and atmosphere. Artur is great at what he does. Highly recommended!

  • *****

    Just moved into the neighborhood and gave Arutr a try for my beard trim. He did a fantastic job - so happy with the results. His price was a good and he took his time to give me exactly the trim that I wanted. Aurtur is the only place that I will go from now on.

  • *****

    I love this place. I take all my friends there. They do a great job... Just look at me! Thanks Guys! !

  • *****

    Went and got my son first Hair cut done today and He did an amazing job!!! Definitely where we will be going from now on.

  • *****

    Artur is a pro! He always gives me the exact haircut that I want. Great shaved and beard trims too- he uses hot towels and oils and does a great job!

  • *****

    My husband has been getting his hair cut by Artur for about a year now. He does a phenomenal job every time!!! Not only does he give great hair cuts, but his prices are reasonable and he is a great guy to chat with. We were very excited to see him open up his own shop a few months ago, and we know that he will do well. Wishing Artur much success in the future!

  • *****

    My favorite barber in town has his own shop! Artur always gives amazing haircuts and goes the extra mile with beard trims and shaves

  • *****

    Best care I've ever had at a barber's. Due to prior experiences I'm generally pretty leary towards barbers, especially so when finding a new one. Here I was perfectly comfortable and was only more so as the haircut went on. Artur himself is a very skilled and capable man. He quickly understood my request and delivered beyond expectations. Pricing here is not altogether unreasonable, consistent with the location, age, and skill of the shop. Artur's is a one man operation at the moment and the appointment scheme is similar to that of Father and Son's; walk in, put your name on the board, and take a load off.

  • *****

    I've been going to see art for over a year now. I used to go to Father and Son Barber shop on Broadway where he worked for over three years. When it comes to getting your hair cut, it has to be someone you can trust. Art is just that. He has always given me flawless haircuts no matter what the style is! This new location is amazing and his attention to detail is phenomenal. Art will make sure you get exactly what you're looking for and he really takes his time with each customer to ensure that. Not only is the haircut great, but also the customer service. I would recommend this shop for anyone looking to get a professional haircut.

  • *****

    Artur is the best! This new shop is a great addition to Bryn Mawr and is affordable for a great cut. Been going to Artur for years so happy to see him open his own shop.

  • *****

    Great barber! I've always been extremely happy with my haircuts. Artur has a great touch.

  • *****

    Hands down one the best barber shops in Chicago.Artur does a great job, listens to what you want and you don't feel rush. Every cut I have gotten has been excellent. Great, relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended

  • *****

    Artur is great. I think it's hard to find barbers who pay close attention to detail. Artur sure does. Expect a nice, clean haircut here.

  • *****

    I've been going to Artur for years, and his new barber shop is great. He always does a great job, and I look forward to going to Artur's Barber Shop for years to come. Plus the location is great- just off the Red Line.

  • *****

    Artur is a fantastic barber and an all around awesome dude. I've been going to Artur for over a year now and could not be more thrilled that he finally has a shop of his own! While I don't have a lot of hair to cut, Artur does an amazing job trimming and lining up my beard. I always struggle to maintain it on my own but Artur always keeps me looking fresh!

    10/10 would recommend

  • *****

    I've been going to Artur for the last ~2-3 years while he was working at Father and Son down the street. I always leave impressed by the haircut I get from him. Definitely one of the best barbers I've ever been to. He takes his time with all the little details that turn a good haircut into a fantastic haircut.

    It's awesome he opened his own shop and I visited for the first time today - I left very happy as always.

  • *****

  • *****

    Artur is a great guy and a fantastic barber. He does an amazing job with trimming my beard. I've been a customer of his for years because of how good he is with facial hair. I get haircuts more often because I love how great I look when I walk out if the shop. Highly recommend
