Our Story

Redline Barbershop.6.2019 123

I married a geek.

It came as a surprise to me in the spring of 1999 as we stood in line for the Star Wars movie: The Phantom Menace. It had been almost 16 years since Return of the Jedi and the buzz about the new release was electric. We were recently engaged and met up with friends who’d purchased a block of tickets. But as we stood in line outside, passing the time before the doors opened, something odd occurred. An unseen gravitational force was pulling my fiancé into a group of people with Star Wars trivia. Remarkably, he began to answer trivia questions – giving meticulous details and pronouncing planets with lots of consonants. A realization washed over me – I was marrying a geek!

Twenty years later, my husband is still a geek. And Redline Barbershop is our tribute to all the things that we’ve enjoyed over the years. While rock streams overhead, you can choose to experience FREE retro arcade games, comic books, bubble gum or an array of posters ranging from super heroes to classic movies to cars and more!

And, of course, we are committed to providing you with the best barbershop services you can find.

Be Cool.
Our goal is to create a unique community space for everyone, so
we don’t like chatter about sex, religion, or politics.
We just want a place to chill for a bit.
This needs to be place where old and young can gather and
a mom won’t cringe bringing her son, agreed?
So, we do not tolerate discrimination or hate speech.
If you are not in agreement with this, please pass us by.

Going the extra mile. Together.

We believe it’s important to take care of yourself. That’s why we do what we do. And we believe it’s important to take care of the community. That’s why we do what we do here.

We give a portion of the revenue back to the community through donating to worthy charities that support feeding the hungry, anti-trafficking, disaster recovery and adoption.

So, when you come to Redline, you can feel good about how you look and feel good about helping others too.


Book a reservation in advance online and view up-to-date availability – it’s fast & easy!

Time is NOT on our side.

Give us a call if you’re running late because if clients are booked back-to-back, we may need you to reschedule.

So, stop in early to enjoy a comic book, some bubble gum or beat the high score on one of our FREE retro arcade games.

Walk-in service is available when we can slide you into an open slot.  (Look for the glowing “No Wait” sign.)
