Palmer's Barber Shop
I recommend Palmer's Barber Shop in New Orleans, LA. There is no sign,
no telephone. One barber, Palmer. There is a sign in the window that says
no children, no new customers, but if you knock at the door and have a
good head of hair that needs cutting - short - he'll let you in. Palmer
cut my hair for the 15 years I lived in New Orleans. He is without a doubt
one of the best of the 'old time' barbers. He is absolutely one of the
best at flattops (shorter the better), crewcuts and high and tights. His
clientle is a cross section of New Orleans. Palmer is picky, slow (he takes
his time and gets it right!) and great! Absolutely a must for short hair
fanatics! For literary buffs, this address is the fictional home of "Brick"
in Tennessee Williams "Streetcar Named Desire" - the bus named Desire passes
in front of the shop. The shop is located a few short blocks from the French
Quarter, near Washington Square.
635 Elysian Fields Avenue, New Orleans, LA.
Shop hours: Tues. 8-4, Wed. & Thu. 8-6
Thanks to 'MajorDad' for this recommendation.
Don's Barber Shop
My barber is named Don. Don specializes in any kind of SHORT haircut---esp.
flattops and regulation high'n'tights. He is about the only barber in this
area that is an expert with a straight razor---both for a man's face and
even his scalp. And he only charges $5.00 for the haircut. He is a big
man with a shaved slick head. Give him a try if you are ever in the area.

Update (Jun 20, 1999)
This very popular traditional barber shop in
the northern part of the Dallas area has new extended hours, and now has
two full-time barbers.
Raider Barber Shop
Here's a shop in the H.E.B. (Hurst Euless Bedford) area. Ten chairs, pretty
traditional in most respects, usually dropdead busy on Saturdays. The guy
to ask for is Wade. He's a thirty-something ex-Marine, who has been lopping
mops for about a decade. He'll do exactly what you tell him. But if anything,
he proceeds with caution the first couple of times. In other words, no
surprises. Likewise, if you tell him "put the pedal to the metal," he'll
cut it as short as it goes.And he knows all the terminology. Most summers,
he himself, will wear a flattop.
1305 Brown TRL, Bedford, TX 76022
Phone: (817) 282-2357
an update about Raider Barber Shop from another very happy Buzztowner:
I have gone to Raider Barbershop now for the past several weeks and
have found a barber there named Jerald (Jerry) who gives excellent
flattops. He is the second to the last chair on the left as you walk into
the shop. He normally works Wednesday through Saturday. Jerry really takes
his time while cutting your hair and wants to make sure that he gives you
a sharp, crisp, classic flattop. I also have to say that he cuts your flattop
so that it will be the best shape for your individual facial features.
If you have been told that you really don't have the face for a good looking
flattop, I really suggest that you give it a try by having him cut this
particular style for you. It will look good on you. Jerry doesn't hesitate
to go short if that is what you want or likewise doesn't mind leaving it
longer on top. I recently have gotten my hair cut in a flattop again, having
had the haircut a few years back. I can say without hesitation that he
has given me the "best flattop" I have ever had. Men living in the Dallas-Ft.
Worth area really owe it to themselves to have their hair cut by him.
Ben's Barber & Styling Shop
Someone posted a message on Hairnet, asking for a good barber for "high
and tights" in Houston. There were two recommendations:
3823 Dunlavy St, Houston, TX 77006
Phone: (713) 528-8898
"Go to Ben's Barber shop downtown and ask for Alex, he gives great high
and tights, flattops, and crewcuts. He is not to afraid to go short/bald."
"I tried Alex a couple of years ago at Ben's Barbershop. He does and
ok job, but you have not had a flat top until you have been to Gordon.
He is the best I have been to EVER! It is worth the drive."
Hargraves is a six chair shop that's been around for thirty years. The
TV doesn't get good reception, but the just adds to the charm. The magazine
rack is stocked with every outdoor-type magazine and Farm & Ranch Illustrated
to Rollingstone. The people are great, I always hear stories of rodeos
and first-time cuts, for most of the younger customers got their first
9218 FM 1960 Road West, Houston, TX 77070 (One mile west
of Willowbrook Mall)
Phone: (281) 469-5106
The barbershop is like going through a time warp, not because of the
old-time cash register or unbreakable pocket combs, but because the same
values of early days are in effect. Children are respective towards the
older men and it's nice to see younger fathers bringing in their boys to
get a trim, keeping the tradition alive. As far as the haircuts go, all
the barbers are top notch. The first time I went to Hargraves I admitted
I was once a salon customer and I told Jim how sick I was to always get
the "new" person, the "fresh cut." Jim assured me their "new guy" had been
there for fifteen years and they were still hazing him. A lot of people
wait for Larry, the owner, but I think it's just out of habit and conversation.
So if you need to get trimmed up so you "mom will let you sit down to
supper", bring your cowboy boots or dress shoes for a shine while you wait
and soak up some of the goodness that makes you thank God that you're in
Texas, and as always "a nine-dollar bill will get you out of here."
Thanks to Nathan
Day for his review of this traditional barber shop in the great state
Times Barber Shop
The Times Barber Shop is located in the Rice University village area. According
to the reader who recommends this shop it "is a five-chair shop but the
barber to have your hair cut with is Robert in the first chair. This man
is a master of short and razor cuts, and his use of both the clippers and
razor is masterful. If a close cut is desired, this is the man to see.
His high and tights, flattops, and general short cuts are to be experienced."

University Hair Styling
Last Thursday, Feb. 12, 1998, I went to a new shop in my town: University
807 University, Lubbock TX 79401
Phone: (806) 763-3659
I sat in the chair, and asked for a flattop. The sides are #2, and the
top is perfectly flat. The male barber there cut my hair, received an awesome
flattop, and wanted to pass on the info. It cost $7.50, have gotten cheaper
cuts, but this one was worth the extra cash. Faithful Buzztown Client,
Custer Square Barbers
Recommended on the Hairnet Hotline, by contributor "Tex". He says that
the main barber, John, is a real pro.

Huey's Barber Stylist
According to a message posted on the Hairnet Hotline by "Tex", "all the
barbers are great, but Daryl is my favorite. He is a perfectionist and
takes his time. The first guy is good but is usually a five minute start
to finish job. I have seen the third guy turn out a really good looking
high and tight."

Sportsmans Barber Shop
This shop was recommended on the Hairnet Hotline by a couple of guys. One
guy (Colin), had not been there for over ten years, but said they were
very good for short hair, especially taper cuts. The other guy (Tex) says
that they are still good. He says that "the main barber (older Cajun guy)
is a fantastic barber but is getting along and usually leaves early on
Saturday. He is usually there real early on weekday mornings though. The
other guys in the shop are good but not in the same league as this guy."
57 Richrdsn Hts Shop Vlge, Richardson, TX 75080
Phone: (214) 644-6064
Sportsman's is next to Sun Rexall on Belt Line under Central Expressway.
Sportsman is indeed still there. I have had my haircut there a few times
in the past years. The main barber (older Cajun guy) is a fantastic barber
but is getting along and usually leaves early on Saturday. He is usually
there real early on weekday mornings though. The other guys in the shop
are good but not in the same league as this guy.
Webb Royal Barbers
According to the Buzztown visitor who sent the details of this shop, "this
is a really nice barber shop with several chairs. It is an old fashioned
barbershop. They give great haircuts, especially flattops and crew cuts.
They also use shaving cream and straight razor to finish up short haircuts.
They also do something else very unique, after your hair cut, instead of
brushing your face off they blow it off with compressed air! There is a
barber there by the name of Ken, he gives the best haircuts. (I believe
that he is the owner or owners son.)"

Phone: (214) 357-8900
Update: Thanks to another Buzztowner
for the following update about this shop:
I went today to Webb Royal Barbers. This shop was recommended by a
Buzztown reader as giving "great flattops." The man who gave me my "low
and tight" with "landing strip" was named Kim (not Ken as was noted in
the shop's write up in the Buzztown Barbershop Listings). Kim, by the way
is a man (perhaps that was why there was some confusion regarding his name).
He is the "original" owner's son but the shop has since been sold.
Two days ago I had a kind of modified, but long bowl cut. My hair was
about 6 inches on the top of my head (similar to Hugh Grant's haircut)!
It began to bother me because it was too much work to keep it looking good.
I also thought my hair looked really fine and lifeless with this cut. A
couple of days ago, I decided to have it cut to two inches on top in the
"Ivy League" style. To me, this style is kind of boring. I left that way
for two days but decided with my hair that short already, why don't I go
ahead and go for a flattop. I wore one about three years ago and really
liked it. Unfortunately, I got "mixed reviews" from several people. So,
overall, I was apprehensive. (I am not looking forward to comments from
people at work and family members.) With hesitation, I went to the shop
recommended by Webb Royal Barbers and "took the plunge".
I do think the haircut looks really good on me and I am the one I need
to please most. I like the angles of a flattop and how masculine it looks.
I did not plan on having it cut as short as Kim cut it, but since my hair
is fine (I do have a full head, it is just fine hair). I thought a "shorter"
"low and tight" would be my best bet.
God, I love this haircut! I know I will again enjoy using "Krew Comb"
and the easy maintenance of this classic haircut. It is a great looking
haircut and I really recommend Webb Royal Barbershop for a "crisp flattop"!
Any advice from readers as to how to deal with people tomorrow at work

The Trophy Barbershop
This shop was recommended on the Hairnet Hotline by Jeff.
103 East Texas Avenue, Houston, TX
Phone: (281) 427-1187
This seven chair shop is a great place for flattops and other clipper
cuts. All the barbers are good but the best three are the two closest to
the front door and John. It's an old fashioned shop, complete with shine
man. It's not uncommon to have people bring in five or six pair of shoes
(or boots) and sit and watch the barbers at work.
Park Mall Barber Stylist
According to Hairnet contributor "Tex", this shop in the north Dallas area
"is a real barbershop and from the cuts I saw there all the barbers are
great. I got a regular short haircut but there were two flattops going
on also. Kenny, the first barber was recommended to me. Great atmosphere,
lots of clipper work, straight razor outlines."

Phone: (214) 424-9603
I am recommeding that John's Barbershop be added to your site. It is located
in San Antonio, Texas. The shop offers military cuts and specializes in
flattops. John, the owner, gave me a great high and tight flattop when
I was there complete with shaved sides and a landing strip. He also gives
great facial shaves. He has a full service shop.
12843 Nacogdoches, San Antonio, TX 78217
Thanks to Buzztown reader John for sending in details
of this shop.
Clippers Barber Shop
"On Feb. 19,1999 I went to a great barber shop - Texas Clippers in San
Antonio, Texas - a barber shop right outside one of the gates of Lackland
Air Force Base. I waited my turn, as the shop is usually busy. I asked
for #1 sides and back, and left the length on the top. Actually he trimmed
the top up just a bit. Left about an inch on the top. It was a really great
cut, after the initial shock wore off, they complimented the cut and said
it was quite debonair!!!! Who knew that a haircut could make such a difference!!!!!!!!
I know all of you did. Thanks to Jessie at Texas Clippers!!!!!!!!! He is
a really goood barber."

Eli's Bridgestone Barbershop
Eli's Bridgestone Barbershop is a four chair barbershop, but Eli is the
barber to see for a fantastic high & tight flattop using lather and
straight razor to shave the whitewalls. He also shaves a smooth head. You
can't miss him. He is the dude with the shaved head.

Dickie's Old Time Barbershop
This shop was recommended on Hairnet Hotline by Jeff.
13414 Greenway, Sugar Land, TX 77478
Phone: (409) 242-6767
Just southwest of Houston,. Dickie's Old Time Barbershop is located
at 13414 Greenway, just off Eldridge Road. Three related barbers own the
shop: Mr. Dickey the patriarch, his step-daughter Jeannie and her husband
Gordon. Gordon is a former Marine and gives an excellent flattop. The others
do as well. Their specialty is something called the "Kempner Cut", named
after the local high school. Essentially a Marine high and tight flattop,
it is particularly popular among customers 12-18 and law enforcement officers.
