As I tackle another mission to find the best of Hoboken barbershops, I figured I’d start out by letting you in on my secret hot spot for getting my hair trimmed, neat and perfectly groomed. When I first moved to Hoboken, I was unimpressed with the quality of cuts given by the unisex chain salons across the mile square. Luckily, I had a college friend who had recommended D&V to save me from the usual uneven sideburns. For nearly 50 years, Dominick and Vincent’s Barber Shop has provided the Hoboken community with precision cuts and fresh styles that will guarantee compliments.

As I continued my quest for the best adult rec rooms across the mile square, I had come to a realization that I forgot to review one of my town favorites.

I also avoid places that have stylists that clearly don’t care about your hair. I’ll admit it, I grew up going to one of those unisex hair salons like Pro-Haircutters and usually ended up with some random person who left my sideburns uneven. But since I’ve come to Hoboken, I’ve only trusted barbershops. Because let’s face it fellas. Barbers know how to cut a man’s hair. Need a free haircut? Keep reading!
