Modern Barber and Shave takes your safety seriously. When booking, please take into account that we need to be thorough and there will be a short grace period for cleaning and disinfection so be early if possible. As we respect your time immensely, please respect ours! If you are more than 10 minutes late, you forfeit your appointment time and cancelation rules apply. Beer, soda and snacks are available in the lobby as well as video games and reading material (for adults and children.)
If you enter with a face covering, once you are safely distanced from others, you may remove it if you wish. We are now offering beard trimming and face shaving as normal, book for all the services you need at once.
As we settle into our “new normal,” we appreciate your patience and understanding. If you can, booking more than a day in advance ensures we will have the correct amount of staff to service everyone. We also have recurring appointments available if you would like the same day/time we would love to accommodate your needs! If you do not have an appointment yet, the easiest way is still to follow the Book Now links below for the barber of your choice. If you have any trouble booking or further questions please email or text 860-924-2992 during business hours.
When you go to book, it 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 major credit card. Call us ASAP if there is a serious reason why you cannot make your appointment and we will work with you.

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.
