Blades Barbershop specializes in precision fades and sharp edges for customers of all ages. It’s known by its neighbors for great barbers and phenomenal children’s haircuts.
“Kalie absolutely CRUSHED my hairsnip,"John Hennesey Baker wrote in a review on the shop's website. "Whata talented barber. From the technical (which admittedly, I know little about but I know what I like) to the experience aspect of the cut, she was a pro through and through. Absolutely lovely human, true craftswoman.”
When the entire Roosevelt Men’s Swim team stopped in, Cathy Borcherding Kramer was impressed with their community spirit.
“They were very generous to let the Roosevelt Men's Swim team come in and shave the heads of the first-year swimmers,” she wrote on Facebook.
Melissa Beaman recommends Blades on Facebook for children’s haircuts.
“I took my son to get his first real hair cut, he’s only 21 months old. Sergio. Was. Phenomenal. He was so patient and so accommodating. He was so sweet to my son and guided me on how best to hold my child to get the best cut done. I was nervous cutting off baby curls and all of the guys were just so fantastic. Sergio even bagged up the curls for me to keep. We will be back without question.”
