Whether you’re looking for a haircut, beard trim or shave, old-fashioned barber shops are the way to go! We asked our Facebook Fans where they recommend going for a true barber shop experience in Lake County.
Inside these gems you’ll find a community of neighbors, friends, and family that give a small town feel in the middle of the Chicago suburbs. You’ll see customers grab a broom and help sweep while they wait for their turn. The basic-looking outside most often leads into a small room filled with character that oozes out the door, where all people feel right at home. Barber shop customer service is unbelievable. My husband comes home with trimmed eyebrows, facial hair, and a smile on his face because he always runs into an old friend.
Our readers helped us compile a list of their favorite old-fashioned real barber shops in Lake County–places where men are cutting hair, giving razor shaves and talking about the good ole’ days in a store with a candy-striped, barber shop pole out front.
