When it’s time for a trim, you want a barbershop that’s comfortable and contemporary with a suitably manly atmosphere.

Cannibale

1
813 1 Avenue NE, Calgary, AB T2E 0C2

This barbershop shares its space with a cool neighbourhood cocktail bar in Bridgeland. With a large, street-facing window, this one-man show features a white-tiled room and bright-red chair. Get a cut, buzz, beard trim or shave and don’t leave without stopping at the bar or patio (in summer) for a drink and a deliciously meaty, cheesy charcuterie board.

London Barbers

2
1108 4 St SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0X6

Walk in or book an appointment at any of this old school barbershop’s three inner-city locations: in the Beltline, Kensington or in Eighth Avenue Place downtown. Modern guys head here to keep their look fresh. The outfit’s barbers use traditional tools (try the a cut and classic straight-razor shave) for great results and an indulgent experience. Man-cave details like a hanging punching bag, flat screen TVs and arcade games keep you busy while you wait.

Master Barbershop

3
6-920 Northmount Dr NW, Calgary, AB T2L 0A9

This barbershop on Northmount Drive is a real neighbourhood favourite. The shop sports a red, white and blue striped barber pole, a TV and a basic waiting area. The draw is the shop’s gregarious owner-barber – Gus is a skilled and friendly hair cutter. He focuses on clean cuts and colours for guys of all ages, including little ones. The shop also carries a range of take-home hair-care products.

151-255 5 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2P 3G6

Treat yourself right at this cool, urban barbershop located downtown. Featuring exposed redbrick walls, customers have included Calgary’s mayor and famed Canadian comedian Rick Mercer. Walk in or book ahead to relax with the morning newspaper and a classic hot-towel shave and cut (long, short, buzz, Mohawk or fade) by one of the shop’s male or (mostly) female barbers. Be sure to check out the shop’s products, including a range of swanky straight razors.

Man Calgary

5
207-1324 11 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T3C 0M6

Man Calgary is an upscale spa escape designed just for the guys. The Beltline spot offers barber services including cuts and semi-permanent grey coverage that grows out naturally. Go for it with The Spa Cut, which includes a relaxing 30-minute scalp massage. As a bonus, every cut here includes facial grooming, whether it’s a smooth finish you’re after or a trim of that burly beard.

Elveden Centre Mens Hairstyling

6
115-717 7 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2P 0Z3

Elveden House is a hidden gem of a place that’s been in business for nearly 60 years at the same location, and it’s the real deal when it comes to great service and quality cuts. Sit down and get your shoes shined at this downtown spot while one of two experienced barbers (one of whom is the owner) snips your hair old school – with scissors only, of course.

For The Male

7
3715 17 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T3E 0C1

Book at this barbershop for a full range of services including straight-razor shaves, cuts, colouring and highlights. For the Male also offers private razor-shaving tutorials along with hair styling and product consultations, so you can maintain a solid grooming regime at home. Kids’ cuts and seniors’ pricing are also offered.

BarberShop 1st Ave

8
925 1st Avenue NE, Calgary, AB T2E 2L3

You’ll know this Bridgeland barbershop by its two spinning barber poles. Inside, the place features shiny, black-and-white checkered tile floors and red walls. Just as the sign out front suggests, drop in for a classic cut and a soothing hot shave by any of the shop’s young barbers. This is definitely where the cool kids (young and old) come to get that perfect fade, artistic shaved-in designs or smart Mad Men ’do.
