Modern Barber and Shave will NOT be requiring masks or face coverings of any kind going forward. It is easier for us to work if you are comfortable taking the mask off, but if not we will do our best to work around it.
We will never ask for your personal medical information in ANY capacity and ask that you pay our staff the same courtesy.
Please be patient with us as we have very limited staff and cannot do two or three things at once. For this reason, we may not always get to the phone. You may text the shop line (860) 924-2992 to receive an answer when we're free. The easiest way to get in to see us is to book online. If you have any trouble booking, please email us at email@example.com or fill out the comment card on this webpage.
When booking on our software, you will enter a credit card to reserve your time. You have not paid for your appointment yet and after your service is complete, you may choose to pay with credit, debit, Samsungpay, Applepay, cash or gift certificate.
Note about our gift certificates: We've recently switched our booking program, so if you purchased an online voucher prior to January 1, 2022 please come to the store with your confirmation email to redeem. Vouchers purchased online from January 1, 2022 are already in our system.
When you go to book, the system will ask you for a credit card number. This is to ensure your intent to show up for your appointment. If you cancel your appointment within 24 hours or less your card will be charged 50% of the service. This includes those appointments made within the 24 hour cut off!
If you do not show up at all with no explanation your card will be charged the full amount of the appointment.
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 5 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.
Katie - Barber Stylist
Katie has officially completed her barber's apprentice program with the State of CT so please be sure to congratulate her next time you're in! As of July 2022 she holds a CT barber license and is ready to work completely independently. Because she has a little baby at home, her hours are limited so make sure to book ahead. Her specialties are straight razor shaves and making everyone laugh 😉
Tim - Barber
Previous Navy brat Tim has put down a career in teaching to pick up the clippers and shears! Ask him about living in oceanfront Waterford or being an (unfortunately) lifelong New York fan. He's an alumni of MC Barber Academy in Berlin, CT and definitely has something unique to bring to the trade. Book him if you love talking sports or what's current on streaming along with a great cut.
Cat - Owner/Operator
Cat is a third generation barber with over a decade's worth of experience in the business. She cut her teeth on military base barbershops and presently sits on the Cosmetology advisory board for Westerly High School. She is dual licensed in Cosmetology and Barbering in the state of CT and has traveled the world gaining knowledge from some of the best barbers and stylists alive. She's always willing to hear your suggestions on how to make the business better so don't hesitate to reach out or give constructive criticism while you're in her chair!
Marshall - Apprentice Barber
Our owner's baby brother Marshall is learning the trade one buzz at a time! Please reach out or tell us next time you're in if you would be willing to be a guinea pig for his education. Haircuts will be discounted and Cat will look over all of his work to ensure your satisfaction before you leave. He's now available for online booking below!
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.
