REVIEWS OF Pistons & Pearls Hair and Barber IN California

Aaron Gaily, D.C.

Bailey and Sara are awesome. Great service. Very cool salon/barber shop. I'm a regular now and will be for a long time. This is the place!

Jeff Comer

Emy is an artist, she does amazing work! The atmosphere and decor is comforting, great music, and everyone was very welcoming.

Hilary M

A good and pleasant and professional establishment! although I was disappointed by like, the LITERAL wall between the gendered-ness of the establishment -- like, I saw the name on the internet and thought "how charming! a traditionally masculine idea, and a traditionally feminine idea, combined to make a snappy store name!" and then the "PISTONS" WERE ON THE LEFT AND THE "PEARLS" WERE ON THE RIGHT AND I WAS JUST LIKE... "damn, i already made the appointment, though..." i'm sure they're a very good establishment if you have high standards of grooming for yourself, but i don't! maybe if i want to dye my hair a wild color sometime soon, i'll go to them, but in the meantime supercuts is fine for me because i don't really need much for my own hair

Cody Rishell

In the end, i had a decent experience. The vibe I got was that the front desk/receptionist focuses more on the salon versus the barbershop element of it. That part aside, the two barbers were awesome! Hilarious and informative and really, really knowledgeable in both craft and industry. Id recommend them to any guy I know for sure. I can't comment on the salon since I was not there. There was a blonde stylist who was super nice and asked how I was doing and it felt sincere which is cool.

Zacary Conner

Great place for a quality cut(and a beer), a nice change of pace from the standard military cus in a lot of the other places around town. G can do it all!!!

Emy was great. Best haircut ever. I’ve been getting lots of compliments. Did a really nice job on my beard too. I’m liking my new look. Thanks!

Rich Rod

Relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Excellent service. The best barbershop in town!

Adam Wulf

Best haircut I've had in years!

Damian Scott

Great haircut and talented barbers. I really enjoyed my visit, and a bit of banter with the guys. Just a tad too pricey though. Otherwise, fantastic!

carissa mann

Terrible experience. Ignored when I walked in. And turned away despite having an appointment. Told they cannot highlight my hair because they didn't have enough time. However they did not offer any other slots. And I made an appt online for cut and dye. Owner was rude and condescending. Will never go back or recommend.

Chris Burnham

Best barbershop on the Monterey Pennisula. Go see Kevin there, you won't be disappointed

Holly Proce

I just finished up with Robin, I am so in love with my hair! Thank you!!

Coolest (not to mention the best) barbershop I have ever set foot in. Cost me $40 for a straight razor shave of my head (I go completely bald). They offer discounts to military members as well. Additionally they offer you a wide range of beverages when you walk in. And they even have this awesome, adorable, little dog that quietly chills in the shop! Seriously love this place.


Got a great haircut! Super awesome people there!

Sean Boyd

I came to California for my first time and my experience here was nothing shy of great. Sarah gave me a great cut and an awesome itinerary for local spots to see. I'd definitely reccomend this place, very warm welcoming staff, Sarah was great.

Gary Miller

First time in today and ...Absolutely great! Skip the phone call and book on line through their website. I did in less than three minutes and my wife says it's the best haircut I've ever had. It could not have been easier. Thank you SaraPink. Great service, great vibe and great music. Can't wait to go back and see Bailey too! You guys ROCK!

Virginia Neufeld

Anders Larson

Awesome environment! Free drink while you wait, excellent haircuts, complete with a hot towel shave to finish off your taper. They're a little pricey, but I keep going back, so it must be worth it!

Laura Bjorklund

I made an appointment for my husband to have a hair cut and hot shave on his birthday. I made the appointment online several weeks in advance and received an email confirmation immediately after I made the appointment and I received another email confirmation the day before his scheduled appointment. I told my husband about his surprise and we excitedly headed out to his appointment to kick off his birthday festivities. Needless to say we were shocked to find the shop closed when we arrived! There was a sign on the door saying they were closed for the day to go to a hair show. What the heck?! They left without even checking their appointment book for the day? They never even called or emailed us to cancel or reschedule. How insanely unprofessional and rude! Their haircuts might be ok but they are undermining themselves with their lack of business skills and common courtesy. So be forewarned, if you book an appointment with them, even if you confirm it TWICE, you still may get stood up.

Cristina st. germain

Monty Ray

These guys do an amazing job. Worth the price by ten folds.

Amanda Fogelman

Devin is a fantastic stylist and a beautiful person!

Jania Salinas

Dan Costinescu

Good place for men haircuts

Michael Martin

I only come here to get my haircut, it's the best barbershop around. Everyone is friendly and does a great job.

Matthew Phelps

Hector and Emily have been cutting our hair for a little while and we love the place. Have a beer while you wait. Very casual and friendly, and great value for the money. We are happy regulars!

Andrew Thompson

While living in Monterey, this was my go-to place to get my ears lowered. Was always very satisfied with my hair cut, and always enjoyed the atmosphere; the beer offer is only a cherry on top of the whole experience. Since moving I have found it very difficult to find a place to provide the kind of quality service as Pistons & Pearls.

Glenn Walker

Be prepared to pay more but you get every cent worth. They are professional and provide a quality experience every time. This is when I want to pamper myself!

Nathan C Rhodes

I've gotten the best haircuts of my life here. I like the modern look and the hairdressers and barbers are friendly and courteous.

Jennifer Alstat

Trinity Bingaman

This is the first time I’ve gotten like 8 inches chopped off, and the leading question wasn’t “are you sure?” The woman who cut my hair was so good I absolutely love my hair

Mark Arellano

Great haircut for men. Clearly he was new at doing men's shaving. I would do a haircut again but not as shave here again.

Curt Chaffee

Brooklyn is the best! Great atmosphere and serious commitment to customer service.

Erin Morissette

Great place!!!

Andrew Kennedy

The best (and pretty much only) place nearby that practices traditional barber shop skills, such as a hot towel shave.

Antonio Rod

Its ok

Natalie Kim

I made sure to read some reviews before I went in for the cut. I didn't make appointment for Sarah,( I'm assuming she is the best according to reviews) so another lady was cutting my hair. What I showed her on the picture and what she did are two different things.I wasn't even sure if anything was done to my hair at all, other than washing/drying/ trimming. Meanwhile my friend was getting her haircut from another lady. Her hair also didn't look like anything she showed on the picture. For that price I would say it don't worth it. Although I've noticed that men's department is much much better. I could have gotten same cut at a cheap barbershop.

E Bolin

No appointment no chance . Took my 90 year old dad for a trim and was told to come back in two hours. Not worth the wait. But it would be a great place if you ride a Vespa and have a man bun.

Jackson Sherry

Best Barber shop I've ever been to

Emily Doyle

As long as you make an appointment ahead of time, you'll be good to go. Sara did my hair the first time, and I loved it! I didn't really know what I wanted, just that I wanted layers and shorter hair. She went with it, and it worked out great. They also offer beverages and sell local art!

Francine A

G is a great Barber

Juan Padilla

Ask for Emily, she gets down on a clean fade
