Shop Policies

Modern Barber and Shave will NOT be requiring masks or face coverings of any kind going forward. We will never ask for your personal medical information in ANY capacity and ask that you pay our staff the same courtesy. 

Our doors are locked for your safety and ours as we cannot do two or three things at once. For this same reason, we are not picking up the shop line at this time, but you may text 860-924-2992 or email to reach out with booking issues/questions, to reschedule/cancel your appointment or will any general questions or concerns. 

We appreciate you! 
When booking you will have two options 'Reserve' and 'Reserve & Pay.' Both will require you to record your credit card information in the case that you do not show up for your appointment. If you select Reserve you may choose any payment method in-store and if you select Reserve & Pay your card will be charged approximately one hour prior to your appointment.

We require 24 hours' notice to cancel or reschedule a booked appointment barring an emergency. You will be charged automatically 10 minutes after your appointment time if you do not show up or notify us of the reason you are missing the appointment. 

Active duty military, law enforcement, first responders use promo code RESPOND to receive 10% off your service when you pre-pay. First-time clients use promo code LOYALTY for 15% off your service when you pre-pay (our returning customers are free to use this as well, code will work once per profile.)

Cancelation Policy: 

When you go to book, the system will ask you for a credit card number. From there you may choose to pay online or simply reserve. If you cancel your appointment within 24 hours or less or simply do not show up, your card will be charged. If you selected Reserve only, you have not paid. Upon completion of service, you may choose between paying contactless on the app, cash or credit card (tap, applepay etc.) 


Notify us ASAP if there is a serious reason why you cannot make your appointment and we will work with you. If you are more than 10 minutes late we will not have the time necessary to complete your appointment and be on time for our next customer. Please be courteous when booking and coming in for your service.

Heather - senior barber


Heather came to us right out of cosmetology school and she's proven herself time and time again as a talented barber who continues to learn and grow. Specializing in flattops and all military styles, Heather will easily accommodate any haircut request. She grew up in Stonington & Pawcatuck and would love to give you suggestions for a weekend out.

Katie - junior barber

Katie is ready and raring to go! Though she may look unassuming, don’t be deceived. This green barber makes up for what she lacks in experience with enthusiasm by the gallon. It’s a huge help to us when you sit in her chair and none of our seasoned experts would let you leave without total satisfaction.


Marshall - barbershop concierge

Call on him for anything you need while you're in-store! Marshall is our trusty assistant and you may encounter him anywhere you find yourself. He is usually the first to answer the phone or the door while barbers are busy and he knows our schedules better than we do. Let him get you a cool drink or a hot towel, he's here to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Hodgkins - loyal mascot


Hodgkins is a barbershop veteran and he will be the first to greet you during your visit to the store. Don't be offended if he doesn't wave as his hand fell off some time ago, but don't let his frozen expression fool you: he's happy you're here! He keeps his eye sockets peeled for any troublemakers so be on your best behavior both inside and out and read our helpful signs throughout the shop.
