“Luke, you do not yet realize your importance…Join me, and … with our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy.”

Darth Vader in Star Wars Episode V:  The Empire Strikes Back

Hard not to get choked up reading Darth Vader’s motivating words.

We hope that you will realize your importance and join Redline Barbershop as we implement:

Darth Vader Inspired Protocols


Vader wore one and looked cool. We’re gonna wear one. You need to wear one too during your services. We’ll give you a disposable one if you need it.


A fresh, sanitized Vader black cape will be draped around you during your services.


Barbers & Stylists may choose to wear gloves during your visit…but doubtful they’ll pose with a power fist like Vader. You’re encouraged to use hand sanitizer. No hands will be lost.


Vader was triumphant at being both socially and emotionally distant. (Remember his distant “neck hugs?”) Let’s skip the handshakes and go with a head nod for a greeting. These are new social distancing procedures to minimize occupancy and interactions:

  • Walk-Ins are welcome when we can slide you into an open slot. (Look for the glowing “No Wait” sign.) Sometimes we can’t squeeze everyone in on the same day, but give us a call at 614.698.0085 to learn about same day services or the next availability. If we’re busy and can’t grab the phone when it rings, leave your name & number and we will always call you back. To view up-to-date availability and to guarantee your reservation, schedule online at RedlineBarbershop.com. During this time some services may not be available.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, stay in your vehicle, ring us at 614.698.0085 and leave a message to let us know you are in the parking lot.  We’ll call you back when we’re ready for you.
  • Occupied work stations will be in excess of six feet – about the length of 2 light sabers – from other occupied work stations. Parents must sit in the lobby during a child’s service, while maintaining social distancing and wearing a mask. Parents may not be on the cutting floor.


Even Lord Vader followed the orders of the Emperor. We hope the guidelines that we follow brings order back to the galaxy. We have always been vigilant in our sanitation procedures, utilizing medical grade cleaning products on work stations, equipment, high traffic surfaces, etc. After the initial sanitation process has been competed, you will be called on your cell phone and can make your way into the shop to review the health questionnaire for symptoms before your service. If you’re not feeling 100% before an appointment, please call and let us help you reschedule. Additionally, each Redline Team Member will complete a COVID-19 assessment and temperature check prior to the start of each shift.


Whether you have let your hair and beard grow like Chewbacca, hid it like Vader or pulled it back like Qui Gon, our unrivaled barbers and stylists will set you up with an on-trend cut and style that is guaranteed to deliver. Be sure to stock-up on some hair product too-samples are always free!


Use the Force Redline Fans! Join us in taking these steps necessary to minimize risk and maintain a safe & healthy environment! Let’s make Lord Vader proud!

At Redline Barbershop you can be quirky, cool, or keep that classic cut.

Make a reservation in advance or call ahead to be put on our wait list.

But remember that you gotta be on time or wait in line. If a walk-in customer
is ready to go and you haven’t arrived for your reserved time, then you will
have to wait and be fit in if possible or rescheduled. So, plan to stop in early
and enjoy a comic book and some bubble gum.

Walk-in service is available too, but you might have to defend the universe
on one of our FREE retro arcade games first.

Straight razor shaves are guaranteed only with a reservation. Otherwise, it’s a coin toss.
