    Default Where in St Louis to get a barber shave?

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a barber shop in St Louis, Missouri, that gives a great shave?

    Please move this if it isn't in the right spot.

    Try:


    Harvester Barber Shop
    515 Jungermann Rd
    St Peters, MO 63376
    (636) 447-9887

    The reviews say:

    "Great shop. I have been going there for 10 years and have not had one bad cut. It is an old fashion shop that gives shaves with a straight razor. George and Curt are the best IMO, but any of them does a good job. I would highly recommend the shop."

    and

    "As was mentioned they are a 'real' barber shop using the traditional tools including the straight razor. Why is this so important? Try going to a salon and getting the same cut. I know some do prefer the salons, but the atmosphere at this barber shop is great and reminds you of a pleasant past. It is a pleasure to go in and talk to the barber or other patrons and feel right at home."

    ShowMe - Honestly, I've lived in St. Louis for quite a while and haven't found a great place. You can get a straight razor shave in the Galleria at the Art of Shaving store but I haven't heard anything good about the AOS shaves. The Harvester Barber Shop mentioned above sound promising though. Let me know if you find a place that you like. Welcome to B&B!

    I give myself a pretty good straight shave, but I haven't tried to get a pro one anywhere locally.

    A few months late to the party, but a friend of mine said he got a great straight razor shave at a place called American Classic Barbershop. Here's a link to a map and some reviews. I'm going to try it the next time I'm in need of a haircut.

    I live in Soulard and received a flyer at my door about a barber being at one of the salon's a few nights a week. Its called Medusa's:

    2015 Menard Street, St Louis, MO
    (314) 771-3400‎

    You should give them a call and see if they still have the barber around.
