Experience Austin like a true local on your visit or if you are newly relocated in the area and finding the best barbershop to get that slick, high, tight hairstyle, Birds Barbershop is highly recommended. The independently owned brand is established by life-long friends Michael Portman and Jayson Rapaport. Both owners had a goal to provide salon-quality service and expertise for both men and women of all ages with a twist of enhancing customer experience in different ways.
With Austin being the Live Music Capital of the World and living up to the slogan of Keep Austin Weird, Birds Barbershop offers all things that represent Austin. Where else can you get free cold Independence beer, free WiFi, play old arcade games, and listen to great music while waiting for your stylist to finish up a haircut before you? Plus you get to admire the cool black and white aesthetic with a pop of color of their barbershop and all locations have large murals by local artists in Austin.
