Ja'Mal is the best. Super awesome music and vibes.

Ke Yang

awesome place

Kendall Ernst

Only man I get my haircut from

Amelia Kauffman

They helped us out and took us last minute. Great costumer service and ppl. And they have someone who speaks Spanish! Awesome.

Jack Peters

Ja’mal’s been cutting my hair for a few years now and my wife consistently says they’re the best haircuts I’ve ever gotten. Plus he’s a really interesting person to talk to.

Robbie Caron

Lisa Chinnery

Karissa Olsen

I have been going to Jenna Godejohn for the past 7 years. She is a phenomenal color artist who listens to all my needs and does EXACTLY what I want. I know I'm always in good hands with exceptional service each and every single time. 5++++++ stars!!!!!

Erik Yates

Loved the cut and the vibe. Keep it up, Jamal!

Denver Chief

Haircut was good.. service... outstanding! My beard.. fml

H fasullo

Great haircuts


Stacey was nothing but an absolute pleasure. She’s a great person to talk with and have never seen someone put so much time and care into my hair. She even stayed an hour past her normal closing time just to make sure I was completely happy with the cut. I’m only in Boulder for the summer and my actual barber from Brooklyn doesn’t do this good of a job. I can’t recommend this place enough.

Jacob Wolf

Jamal knows his hair for sure! Great people, great place.

Jack Mcleod

This is the first time I've actually taken the effort to review anything on Google. The barber shop is the best I've been to in ages and the best I've been to in Boulder. I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to worry about playing Russian roulette with a haircut.

Colin Graham

Jenna is a true professional. She does great work and is always learning more about her craft. After my long-time stylist moved out of town, I struggled to find someone with the skills and attentiveness to deal with the way my hair can drive me nuts. With Jenna, I have received a great cut every time and she has also taught me things that have made a huge difference for my daily routine.

An absolute gem in Boulder. Professional, friendly, talented staff. Such a positive, welcoming atmosphere. Killer cuts at a reasonable cost, great products and tunes to boot. The story of this place is also awesome. Check it out!

Jordan Jacobs

Honest Review. This is review is way overdue, but it must be written. First off, anyone looking for an african american black barber who cuts black people hair (along with white) in the Boulder area, this is the place you wanna go. Jamaal is a godsend. Does good fades, very professional and engaging, model citizen, just all around good people.

Lisa Benoit

I moved from NYC and went to several salons in Denver and never felt satisfied with my cut or color. I couldn't find anyone who could texture my wavy/curly hair for the dry environment and color/highlight for MY skin tone. The stylists at Brooklyn Barber Academy are incredibly talented and the special attention I receive is heartfelt. They carry the best products and the entire experience is amazing. My 4 year old, husband and I would never go anywhere else.

Nic Miranda

I've been coming here for ~2yrs and the vibe is always great. Super nice staff, quality cuts, and premium hair product.

Patrick Baek

John Montgomery

Went in to the shop today after not being able to find a decent cut in Boulder. Was totally blown away by the service Jamal provided; an excellent, clean cut at a great price, engaging conversation and a styling tutorial to keep my looking good till the next time I come in. I will 100% be coming back to Brooklyn Barbers. Thanks Jamal!

Mohd 965

Excellent place to go. Great atmosphere and Jamal is very skilled. Highly recommended.

Nico Bivona

Hands down the best barbershop in Boulder. Never been good at choosing haircuts, and I just asked Ja'Mal if we could go with how he would cut my hair after giving him an idea of what I wanted. I ended up with an incredible haircut. They are clearly passionate about their work here and it shows. It was a pleasure to talk to Ja'Mal, and you're guaranteed to hear some great music. I'll never get my haircut anywhere else.

Alex Washburn

14 ratings... all 5 stars, not surprised at all. This is a great shop. Jamal is awesome and the place has a great vibe. Reasonable price and the quality of cut is top notch.

Keenan Eure

Scheduled a haircut for 12pm on a Saturday, but the store remained closed and the barber never showed up. So much for scheduling online

Yannick Polius

One of if not the best barber in Boulder. I was able to entrust Ja'Mal with cutting off my old dreadlocks and he's done an amazing job maintaining my new afro!


J. M. Reeves

Jenna is relatively new to the Brooklyn Barber Academy in Boulder. However, I've had her cut and color my hair for six years at another salon in Boulder County. I LOVE her work. Jenna understands how to work with different hair types, and she does an outstanding job of cutting and coloring my hair. I have short, straight, fine hair, and have never found a stylist who works so well with my needs. I'm following her to Brooklyn Barber Academy because she's got the skills, talent, and experience that I want for my hair care professional. You won't regret your visit to see Jenna at this salon.

Hamza Khalid

Awesome atmosphere...very friendly...and a great job. I got a head shave and beard trim. Jamal was awesome...took his time and was open to any changes! Didn’t feel rushed at all! Definitely recommend :)

Kevin Co

Get my very hard 2 manage hair cut here, when i walked in i was greeted by a nice kid who offered me coffee, tea or a cold beverage stylist jessie was extremely friendly and professional, and my hair was left looking and feeling amazing.... Will be returning for my next one!

Jordan Shrago

Stacy gave me the best haircut I have had in a very long time. Great service and fun atmosphere. This will be my go-to moving forward!

David Raffelock

Best barbershop in town! Just went in to get my complementary clean up between cuts. Ja'mal knows what he's doing, is super nice, and will text you if he's running behind schedule. Don't think I'll be going anywhere else in Boulder for now on.

Charlie Nichols

This place is seriously amazing. I got a haircut from Stacy and she did a remarkable job. Her attention to detail really shows in her work and she goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy with how you look. I will be going back from here on out and highly encourage anyone to book an appointment with her! Thanks Stacy!

Billy Mack

A very welcoming environment…. staff and owner are amazing!!

Kim Adams

Jason Kiel

I've been getting my haircut by Ja'mal for 12 years.. I've followed him at 5 or 6 different shops.. now he has his own shop. Finally.

Oscar DeRoche

nothing but positive things to say, I've only had my hair cut by a handful of people, mainly due to personal preference, but had a great time trying a new place. jamal is super personable and the shop had a really nice small business vibe. price seemed very reasonable considering the attention to detail. will be seeing them again for sure.

Charles McTygue

Always unsure about trying a new place, and I've had plenty of poor haircuts but this wasn't one of them. Other reviews were spot on, Jamal knows what he's doing, very professional and friendly. You can book a spot online, and they offer drinks while you wait.

Edom Mehari

Shanna Henkel

Our whole family loves Ja'mal! He is so loving and kind with my grandma and taught my husband how to blow dry her hair and our 15 year old son refuses haircuts by anyone else!

Daniela Cabrerizo

Jamal know a ton about how to cut women's hair and he's super friendly, gave me great tips too. I have curly thin and freezy hair, so it's hard to find somebody who can cut it right.

Nicolas Altieri

Great atmosphere, great people, great cuts

Jonathan Gruen

Great Barber!

Tim Williams

This is the place you've been looking for - whether you know it yet or not. After years of being mostly satisfied with one of the large barber chains, I decided to try something different - for both my hair and where I got it cut. For a comparable price, the experience is night and day. Easy online appointments, great hospitality and service from start to finish, and highly skilled pros to meet every style need...I couldn't be happier and know I'll be back for years to come.

Lauren Pollock

Jamal is the best !

Erin Pass

If you have curly hair, this is where you want to be! My hairdresser left town and I was getting ready to get on a plane to go see him because I'd had so many bad cuts. Then, I met Ja'mal. He does an awesome haircut and it always looks good. He just moved salons and it is impossible to find him! It makes it that much better when you do. He is now on the backside of the Zarlengo shopping center at 29th and Valmont. I get lots of " thank yous" from curly haired people when they finally go to him. He will be your last, and very best stop.

Tomas Remotigue

Cool atmosphere inside and unpretentious.Stacy cut my hair and was great - did a razor cut and I was really happy with the results. Hairwash was included which was a nice unexpected bonus. I've paid way more for mediocre cuts so I'll definitely be coming back.

Andy Stieber

Amy M.C.

Had a great haircut with Stacy. Nice relaxing atmosphere.

Raymond Duncan

Great gair cuts. Comfortable environment

Russell Mendell

I've been living in Boulder since 2004. I've been to more than a dozen barbers and hair stylists. Ja'mal is easily the best. He's attentive to detail, an excellent listener and a very likable person. I have thick curly hair that is difficult for many barbers, and I until I found this place I often left haircuts disappointed. Now I'm getting compliments after. It's the only place I'll go. I just wish I remembered to schedule before I needed the haircut rather than afterwards. Ja'mal is popular and he is often booked out a week in advance.

brandon murphy

Solid, fresh cut and beard trim from Stacy everytime! Friendly shop, reasonable prices, and good music!

April Capil

Ja’mal is a hidden treasure. When I decided to cut my hair into a silver undercut, I knew the wrong stylist could make me look ridiculous (or charge me a fortune). All I wanted was someone who could give me a reasonably priced, classy cut every 2-3 weeks. What I got was a look that makes me feel sharp and stylish despite my salt and pepper locks. I trust Ja’mal to always keep me looking fierce but feminine without spending a ton of money for a 30-minute cut. He’s everything I want from a stylist with a barber’s price tag, and I could not be more grateful I found Brooklyn Barber Academy!


Just moved to Boulder, and found my permanent barber. Great haircut.

Max Klein

My old barber, Tony at everyone's hair, closed up shop. I decided I needed to find a new barber. Jamal was on his game and gave me an excellent cut today. I appreciated his attention to detail and the shampoo and massage which is something new for me in a haircut experience. Would recommend to anyone looking for an excellent cut.

Lindsay Schneck

Jamal is fantastic. Always a nice and chill environment.

Austin Smith

Greeted with a cup of coffee and a sweet dog, then Ja'mal helped me fix a bad haircut! Amy was very pleasant as well. My new spot!

Ryan Evans

One of the better haircuts I've received. Owner is a cool guy too.

Erika Bridgewater

I've been a client of Ja'Mal for over 6 months now. He is very talented and works with all hair types. I have short, natural black hair and I'm always satisfied with my haircut. He does great color jobs too. Book with him, I doubt you will leave disappointed!

Zeryai Hagos

Experienced barbers who put in a bit more effort/care than I have observed at most barber shops. The service is friendly, including being greeted at the door and offered coffee, tea, etc. while I waited. The prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend this barber shop.

Devon Casey

Lisa Dickson

The only place I will get my boys haircuts

Lek Mik

Good people and great cuts.

Jen Pardi-Cusick

I've been searching for a stylist that can work with my hair for literally two years since I moved to the area and I am delighted to have finally found Jenny. I have thin, fine, curly hair and she worked her magic to transform my ugly grown out hair into a flattering, cute and edgy cut that I love. She really worked with me to figure out what I wanted and how my hair behaves, then applied her considerable skills to give me the most "me" haircut I can remember having. Also, this is the first time that I didn't feel like I needed to go home and wash the weird styling out: she knew what she was doing. I'm so pleased and can't wait to go back. I encourage any gal who really cares about her cut to go see Jenny: you won't be disappointed.

Cat W

Jenna is the best! She does amazing work. Ive been going to her for years. She is wonderful, highly recommended. Great music too!

Crystal Malfavon

Travis Tortorige

I went to Brooklyn Barber Academy today for the first time. I read most of the reviews before going in (which are resoundingly positive), and decided to give it a try. Even though the online booking agent will not allow you to book same day appointments (this is a problem), I was able to walk in at the right time and got seated by Stacy. She did a FANTASTIC job. I mean, one of the best cuts I've ever had. If you like your hair cuts to be tailored by someone who you can tell genuinely cares about every move she makes, then you want to go and have her cut your hair. I will be back, no doubt. Also, I watched Jamal give a cut and banter with a customer. I can tell he is a legitimately caring dude. He seemed to care about his customers and gave a guy what looked like a really nice cut too. If you've been shopping around for that steady barbershop relationship, then you obviously haven't been here. Don't waste your time going to those corporate turn and burn places. There really is something to be said about talent, craftsmanship, and quality output when it comes to haircuts. You deserve it. And, if you think it costs more than other places, think again. The price for my haircut was less than some of the big corporate outlets. Thanks, Travis T.

Laura Pizzichemi

After almost 4 years visiting a variety of hairdressers, in this area, who pretended to know how to cut curly hair, I finally found this place and Jamal who really knows the difference between a cut on straight hair versus curly hair. He not only understood my request, he also delivered a great result making me finally happy and satisfied about my haircut. I will definitely keep going to him because he is a great professional!

Taylor Horowitz

Been going to see Jamal for many years. Highly recommend.

Laura Kaplan

Just had my first Brooklyn Barber Academy cut today, and Jenna was fantastic. She asked a ton of questions about my hair and what I wanted, to make sure I understood my options. She was also okay with me throwing up my hands and saying "I trust you". :) She gave my long, straight blond hair a natural, swingy, easy care cut that I love, with lots of movement, and did a fantastic blow-out. She also gives a super relaxing scalp massage, and both she and Ja'Mal were very personable. Loved the Motown in the background too.

Rebekah Babin

Jamal is amazing! He is passionate about hair. Easy to talk to and will listen to what you need and give suggestions. He is an asset to Boulder. The salon is comfortable and stylish. I have curly hair and found his suggestions helpful.

Mara Bloom

Amy C.

Friendly environment, good music and a great haircut.

Aln Segra

Extremely pricey, 35 dollars for a simple male haircut. Way too expensive.

Adam Green

I've had both Stacy and Jamal cut my hair, and I've been extremely pleased with both! They both took the time to ask and understand what I was looking for and helped me develop a vision for what my hair could be. A+

Kate Jonuska

Stacy was great! She's kind and creative, and I love how she cut my hair.

Jason Hartgrave

Stacy was friendly and very knowledgeable. She took her time and made sure I was comfortable with every detail about my haircut. I felt like a VIP.

nicole greenhouse

Jamal is great at what he does! I'm always happy when I walk out!

Stephan Sharps

I wanted to try a new barber that was closer to my job. They accepted me as a walk-in as I was short on time and the staff was very friendly. I was nervous about trying a new barber and a new hair style but Stacy pulled it off. I found my new barbershop.

Jane Angelo

Took my son Vinny in today. We've been trying to find the "right" cut for years. Happy to say we are thrilled to have found Brooklyn Barber Academy! Thank you Ja'Mal, you are so talented! We'll be back soon!

Corey Miecielica

Jamal does a great job. Hands down one of my favorite spots. Worth the money.. no stencils, Jamal cuts in nice beard and hair lines. My only gripe..... Plan on waiting everytime you have an appointment. Worth the wait, but sometimes annoying.

Dave Mitchell

Incredible haircut, great ambiance, cool people, and reasonably priced. Best barbershop in Boulder.

Moon Shadow

I've been seeing Jenna for two years now. Very well-rounded! She has managed my hair when it was longer and now that it's shorter too. It's very difficult to find a stylist that can make short hair look good! She gives great suggestions and is always open to doing something different. Love her!!!

jacob apple

great men's haircuts & modern barber vibe - jamal has cut my hair at two other establishments. his brooklyn barber academy was a long time in the making. he has created a great spot with a friendly environment. check it out!

Max Messner

Ja'Mal was super willing to give me (a trans man) a masculine haircut to help with my transition. I'm so happy to have finally found a place where I feel comfortable asking for the cut I want and actually get my desired results.

Renaud Amar

Neil DiMuccio

Jenna and Jamal are the bomb! New favorite hair place in Boulder. Funky, upbeat, masculine-but-not-exclusive atmosphere. Great cut, great perks (Jenna offered beverage, neck massage, scalp massage, straight razor use, and more), and great tunes. Family-friendly, too! Competitive prices for all you're getting. Can't really ask for much more - highly recommended!


I get my beard trimmed here regularly. Ja'mal and Jenna are great

Kristian Dixon

These guys know what they're doing. This place is an excellent alternative for those of us that are tired of the chain barbershops.

Jason Bourget

Best haircut of my life!

Zack Finer

Five stars all around. Nice guys who do great work, and the music was on point.

Charles Butcher

Jamal really nailed it with the haircut he gave me. Definitely found my new place thank you!!!

Jon Barlow

This is a hidden gem. If you're looking for a reasonably priced shop with a great welcoming atmosphere without sacrificing stylist quality - this is your place. Stacy has been great every time I've gone in. Great attention to detail. Great transparency and communication. I never have to worry about the quality and always leave happy. Plus, their online scheduling system is great. You can monitor the availability of each stylist and pick a time that fits your schedule. 5 well-deserved stars for a local small business.

Vaughn Engler

I'm impressed. Ja'mal is a real pro. Will definitely be coming here from now on.

Stacy Deal

Stacy Rahall

William Miller

Jamal is great, definitely recommend this place.

Red Walker

Had a great first time experience! I can't recall the name of the gal that gave me the cut but she did a great job. Very fair prices and the attention to detail really shines. The shop is a comfortable environment and everyone was friendly. I will be going back.

alan blount

Great haircut, super cool place, people are very kind

Ryan Nyberg

Ja'mal is the BEST. He has been cutting my hair for over 5 years and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Straight razor my neck and clean up my beard, he does it the right way and always keeps me looking my best! I HIGHLY recommend him to everyone I know.

Nathan Smith

Just had my first cut here and I’m sold! Amazing cut by Stacy. Tons of attention to detail, offered me suggestions and spent the perfect amount of time. This place is no chop shop - it’s high quality and could charge much more. Will be back for my next cut and the 10 after that.

Nanci Kalamaya

Worth the drive from Ltown to have Jenna's magical touch. She is an artist with scissors. Good vibes and dogs to greet you too.

Vijay Kiran Rajamannar

In my opinion, it takes some searching over the web, thoughtfulness and good communication to find a great stylist. The first time I had my hair done by Jamal, I did not get too specific about what I wanted but gave him a high level idea as I was unsure and nervous. However, I got exactly what I asked for and realised that Jamal had great skills. The second time, I told him in detail what I wanted and showed him a pic from a magazine lying around to give a feel of what I wanted. I was amazed right after my haircut then, and am still amazed fifty days after my haircut as to how beautifully my hair has grown out even with much volume. I could very well say that my second hair cut with Jamal is the best haircut I’ve got in my life so far and definitely better than the haircuts my stylist for five years had given me before. Jamal is a skilled hairstylist and a successful entrepreneur, thanks to his skills in the trade and in the business. He is easy to talk to and he really listens to what you want. He doesn’t just give you a great hairstyle that’s trending not knowing what you want, but understands your hair and gives you a haircut that would look great on you and how you want it. The salon itself is a very nice place and I feel truly comfortable when I am there. Every little detail in the salon is well thought of, from how they treat their clients to how the music transitions from one song to the next. If you need a great stylist in an affordable price range, look no further than Brooklyn Barber Academy and I can personally vouch for Jamal’s work. I have an appointment tomorrow and am going to try something new this time, as I am sure that I have found my stylist.

Gary McGraime

John Mahaffey

Brooklyn Barber Academy is the only place I'll get my haircut in Boulder. My first cut in Boulder was a very mediocre hair cut at an overpriced and super bourgeois "barbershop" on Pearl street. Not going back. I am stoked that Brooklyn Barber Academy is here in town and I'll choose to go there from now on. Jenna is great. She hooked me up real proper. Music selection was the best. Overall that was the most outstanding experience I've had at a barbershop to date. Definitely earned all the five star reviews.

Paul Fritz

High quality hair-cut for a good price. You can tell that the people there really love what they do and are very skilled as well. Chill atmosphere that pays homage to the east-coast vibe. Will be coming back for sure.

Tyler Fisher

Jamal did an excellent job and is a very down to earth guy. Very friendly and also great atmosphere in the shop. I will for sure be going back!

Greg Council

In all my years of haircuts, I can say I have never had a more enjoyable experience. Ja'Mal is the best. I would wait two months to get a haircut - and I have.

Aaron Benjamin

This place is definitely the best haircut I’ve had in boulder. Even when giving sort of vague ideas of what I want for my hair Stacy has ALWAYS delivered an awesome look. It’s a real shame they had to move locations but I still feel like I’m really a part of a community when I go in.

Griffin Sheard

jamal knows whatsup. great cut.

Drew Updike

Stacy nailed it today, and Ja’mal is always top of the pops - thank you!

cristian duenas

Best hair cut I've gotten ever .. do come

Chris Martin

I was beyond happy with the haircut from Ja'mal. What normally feels like a quick "in and out" turned out to be a very detailed cut with Ja'mal making sure I was pleased. I received several comments about how my hair looked, which is not a usually a good thing! I'll be back.

Kathryn Ross

Tyler Yessick

The best barber shop I have ever been to. Ja’mal who cut my hair (into a very tight taper fade) paid so much attention to detail. Definitely the best spot in Boulder, miles beyond Floyd’s or Bullocks when it comes to staff.

Blake Stone

Really liked this place! Unfortunately it was almost impossible to find. They have no sign and didn't answer the phone when I called to get directions. My maps app didn't help much either. Eventually I called the stylist and got directions. But maybe this is just all part of the experience. If that's the case then I think they should have a code word at the door and a little entrance that's just a meat locker. A door person could hand you a written quiz on bat anatomy and then grade it. Once you've passed the quiz you can get your dope haircut and leave through a side exit. So yeh, good luck finding this place.

Ben E

Love the Brooklyn Barber Academy. It is solid, honest - and most importantly - a place to get a great cut and beard trim. Ja’Mal and Stacy especially give great a great cut and are just really good people. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Kate Lambert

I have been having Jenna color & cut my hair for years. She always done a fantastic job. She is very professional and easy to get along with. She listens to her clients and in my experience gives me exactly what I need. She did a color "melt" for me today of which I'm extremely happy with. Don't think I'd trust my locks with anyone else at this point!

L'Tanya Perkins

I have had Stacey cut my hair twice. She is fabulous! She definitely knows how to cut Black hair. Not having to go all the way to Denver is wonderful. Thank you Stacey.

Aidan Martinez

Great atmosphere! Ja’Mal was able to get me to explain what I wanted done with my hair and styled it perfectly. Definitely will be coming back!

Jordan Epstein

Must go! GREAT haircuts, awesome staff, and hip interior! (Great prices too)

Krissy Peterson

Excellent place. I was very pleased with my haircut. Ja'Mal listened carefully to what I wanted and checked in throughout the cut to make sure everything was looking good. Some women might be hesitant to go to a barber shop, but Ja'Mal did a great job with my hair.

Chris Ofsthun

Just moved to Boulder from NYC so naturally had to go to the BK Barbershop. Ja’mal was incredibly friendly and gave me a great haircut. He took the time to figure out what I wanted to do with it and I was very happy with the result. Definitely will be my barbershop from here on out!

Anne Lutz

Jenna does my hair. I followed her from another salon. She does awesome work, quick lively pace and great attitude. Prices are reasonable.
