REVIEWS OF Bulwark Barber IN Idaho

Eric Saupe

Matthew R Friesen

Fast, friendly, does amazing work - especially for those with beards!

Zach Palmer

Legit... If you're looking for a contemporary barber shop with fresh ideas and excellent customer service, look no further. Bulwark Barber in downtown Coeur d' Alene, maintains an old school feel paired with modern hair styles and techniques. 5 stars all day, you wont be disappointed.

Tyler Bakke

Always get a great haircut here and the barbers are very friendly, I don't go anywhere else after finding this place.

Levi Thomason

Safety concern, please read. I can count the number of negative reviews I have left in my life on one hand and still have fingers remaining. It is something I avoid unless I feel it is important to the community. I had been to Bulwark a few times before and since I'd received a decent haircut I overlooked their lack of professionalism: smoking at the front door, communication issues, and a hip sense of arrogance or at the least seemingly nonchalant about having my business. This time the experience was the same and much more. I let Paul know how I usually cut my hair and where I usually go. Paul then began my haircut by trash-talking the other barber. The jealousy and distain turned an already unprofessional experience into a disappointing one. I considered having a chat with Paul about how his behavior was likely hurting himself more than his competition. In my judgement, it would have fallen on deaf ears. Needless to say I noticed I needed a fix and went elsewhere for it. In passing, I mentioned to someone else that I had been to another barber and received quite a bit of gossip with my haircut. I didn't give any names or places. Despite that, they immediately guessed it was Bulwark and specifically Paul. I found that amazing until what I learned next. Apparently, Paul has a reputation for extreme jealousy and retaliation. I was shown photos of a gentleman's neck line red, bloody, repeatedly sliced, and bleeding through to his shirt collar. The photos were clearly taken on the spot inside Bulwark and allegedly immediately following a jealous retaliation haircut at the hands of Paul. I'm so glad I did not try to talk sense to this man. I am even more glad that I did not come back and ask Paul to fix my cut. I can't imagine what would have happened to me coming in there complaining about my haircut and trying to encourage Paul to be reasonable with his competition. The photos I saw we're horrifying. For your own safety, stay away from Bulwark. I can't believe Bulwark would continue to employ somebody as dangerous as this. I will gladly remove this review once Bulwark is no longer a danger to the community. Until then, customers beware!


I moved to CDA from San Diego, and getting a fresh cut and a cool experience is something I look for. Bulwark Barber, and specifically, Marco, does this for me. He hasn't steered me wrong. I give him freedom to offer suggestions and he gives me a fresh cut and awesome experience everytime. If you are looking for a sweet spot and an awesome barber I recommend Marco 100%!

Matt Biklian

The shop is classy and clean, and Marco is knowledgeable and friendly! I haven’t paid for a haircut in well over a decade but I’m glad I went to Bulwark; and will definitely be seeing Marco again.

Garret Graves

Whether you're looking for a quick trim or a straight razor shave, Matt and Dylan can handle all of your needs in an authentic old fashioned barber style and atmosphere.

Cameron Hess

Got a Haircut last friday. The shop was super cool and the guys there are awesome. I got my haircut by Marco and it's the best haircut I've ever had hands down. The service was great!

Nathan Goullette

First time getting my beard trimmed at a barbershop. Was a little nervous, but Tyler did a great job! It’s just what I was going for. The atmosphere and professionalism added to an already excellent experience.

Cody Harmon

Go see Marco, very professional and detailed with his work. The shop has a cool vibe.

Michael Green

Great Haircuts Cool Place.

C Schreiber

Very cool vibe, kind of old school meets new. Very talented, professional barbers and I recommend them routinely!

Cary Wagner

Great guys. Great beard trim... I'll be back!

Cristi Caston

I had the BEST experience at Bulwark today and can’t say enough how highly I recommend this place! My son is super shy around people he doesn’t know and he has never sat through a haircut before without sitting on my lap or crying. Until today! Paul was AMAZING with my son, so kind, professional, and personable, and he also gave him the best haircut he’s ever had. The shop atmosphere and ambiance is next level and the whole place has such a great vibe. The other barbers in the shop all said goodbye to us on our way out and my son couldn’t stop smiling after we left. As a mom of 3 boys who is new to CDA, finding Bulwark was such a blessing! I can’t wait to bring my other sons in to see Paul and I love that I now know that I have a fantastic barber to bring them to for years to come. Thanks for making my little guy’s day, Paul! See you again, soon!

Brett Holt

These guys know how to cut hair. Jason is great and I've never left disappointed.

Brandon Nye

Cool place, Marco R. has great customer service/attention to detail.

Matt Morris

daniel negi

Great cut from Paul takes his time and puts a lot of effort into it

Kyle Williams

I have never been disappointed with the level of professionalism. I whole heartedly recommend this shop to every man that needs a barber in their life. It is not just about a hair cut or beard trim. It is about the experience.

Stuart Dundas

The only place I get my hair cut now. They take walks ins on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday and appointments on Wednesday, and Thursday. Friday and Saturday are super busy so you'll most likely have a wait.

Peter Wyatt

Jeromie Hunter

Christine Jaynes

I loved taking my boys to Bulwark Barber! The Barbers there were super gracious to my kiddos shenanigans while they waited their turn and were patient as my boys explained just what they wanted. Both Paul and Tyler took as much time and care with the kids as they would any other client

Lindy Spratford

Aj cut my boyfriend's hair and beard. His mustache was not straight, his long beautiful hair is so uneven in the back. Beard looks like he did nothing. He was also rude to him. This was a valentines gift, that was obviously a horrible idea... never go back!!! I want my money back!

Bill Slavacky

Do not go here. Waited 25 minutes just to be greeted on a Tuesday afternoon. Very rude, stuck up barber's here. It was more like a dive bar than a barber. Some of the barber's need to grow up, be more professional and when they do a haircut for 27 dollars, they remember to get the neck hair too. STAY AWAY

Charli Johnson

I have been taking my son to Paul for over two years. I have NEVER had him cancel, reschedule me or be late. Not even once. I show him what I want, which is usually something complicated or requires extra attention to detail and I leave getting exactly what I wanted. The barbershop is clean and at a convenient location!

William Babor

I love going to Bulwark Barber! In the past I’ve gone other places and they couldn’t do what I wanted or even help me understand how I want my hair cut. When I go into bulwark and see Paul I leave with exactly the hair cut I want and with a better understanding on my hair works and what kind of cut I like to get. A solid cut every time is an under statement !

Zach McMillin

Good quality cuts, chill vibe, and cool people

Richard Deming

Awesome shop and the best scheduling system of any barber I've been to. Even gave me a trim for free when I didn't like a style.

Tyler Ishak

I have been getting my hair cut by Paul for almost a year now. When I first moved to town, I tried a couple other barber shops but none were nearly as friendly or skilled as these guys! Easy to schedule, fair prices, and a great atmosphere.

Reece W Hopkins

I had a chance to drop in to this shop twice this week. The first was to get some product for the father-in-law. The Barbers did a great job describing what we should get him. The second was a visit for their "Full service + beard trim". It was a great experience. I'm not from this area but I will make sure I stop in each time I come to town.

Kristina Barrientos

I love the atmosphere of this barbershop. Paul did a great job on my sons hair, he gave him the perfect Mohawk and my little man couldn’t be happier!!

Mike McCloy

Great haircut every single time

Scott Richardson

I had the delight of having Paul Nemec provide a Full Service today, and I'm very impressed. Hands down, the most professional haircut I've experienced. The attention to detail from Paul was definitely something to experience in person, and I walked out of the business feeling like a new man. He alone has managed to make the price point well worth it, and I'll continue to go to Paul for any future haircuts. 5/5

Jason Durfey

Paul does a great job. Goes the extra mile to do a top notch cut. Best barbershop in town. Make an appointment, walk-ins normally wait awhile.

Daniel d

Dylan and Matt are such talented and nice people. They go beyond what you expect from a barbershop. Truly a great experience.

Justin Hanley

Brett Davis

Great barbershop. They know how to work with beards. The vibrating scalp massage is worth the money without considering the dope cut.

Jesse Robbins

Goddamn if that wasn't the best haircut I've ever had!! It wasn't speedy. Don't go if you want it fast. Go if you want the best goddamn haircut experience you've ever had. It'll be about 45 to an hour depending what you get, so clear your schedule and just sit back and relax and let these masters do their thing! Also. They're open on Mondays now!

Larry Schopp

Abraham Brown

Chad Von Lind

Great cuts and a solid atmosphere.

Isaac Jackson

I've always gotten stellar service.

Tyson Durbin

I’ve been in twice now to see Paul. Very profession, kind, and passionate about his work. Hands down, best barbershop I’ve been to. Friendly atmosphere, open, and inviting. Moving forward, I’ll only take myself and my family here.

Michael Williams

Walked in for a beard trim, came at a good time got seated immediately, Matt did an excellent job trimming my beard, nice ambiance good conversation I will be back


Rick Savage

My first time here. I received a quality haircut, and shave. Dylan was awesome.

David Hanson

Unless you are a regular don't bother.

Nathaniel Naff

Got a great cut from Tyler! Cool atmosphere and real attention to detail. Definitely got my vote. Thanks!

Ryan Bethune

If I could give this place a 0 star rating I would. To start the experience, I walked in on Monday with my Dad (visiting town wanting a straight razor shave) at 1050 to ask if they had availability. Upon entering, the single barber there explains that there should be a second barber present and he is not. He asked if I was John (presumably his appt). I was told that Mondays are reserved for reservations only. I understand this and ask is there a way to setup an appt that day. He told me to go to their website and that their availability would be around 1 or 2. At this point I wanted to ask when John's appt is as there are 2 of us ready and in the shop to go. Instead I go online and schedule my appts for my dad and I to get a shave and a haircut. After scheduling, I get a return email that says that they had to adjust my appt because they couldnt fit a beard trim in with my haircut. I decide to call today to find a resolution and no answer. Voicemail comes on, mailbox is full. Immediately cancel both appointments. I tried 3 times to give you people my money, and 3 times get denied/excuses. I don't know who the barber(and lack thereof) was, but that's bad business. I've taken my business elsewhere and very likely won't return. I've heard good things about this place and was looking forward to taking my dad with me to get a shave and a haircut like we did when I was younger and this place definitely didn't live up to the recommendations. Seems like all barbers in this area either are horrible with time, customer service, or can't shave/cut hair better than super cuts.

Ian Shadman

Matt is a wizard. Matt, Dylan, and the rest of the crew are always friendly and can cut hair like no one else can. Make an appointment or just walk in!

Chris Nicolls

Great people, great cuts

Ben Wolfe

I've been extremely happy since finding Marco at Bulwark Barber. The guy is a pro. And it's awesome that you can make an appointment and know that you're getting in on time. Thanks Marco!

Joseph Walker

Carlos Uribe

Patrick Thomas

David Beattie

I have been going here for a couple years now. Jason is excellent at his craft - always a spot-on straight razor shave and beard trim. You will not be disappointed!

Nancy Harper

I do not usually speak ill of another small business but I must comment. I have a lodging establishment in town and regularly have guests who are looking for a place to have their hair cut. I sent a guest to Bulwark (who says they take walk-ins). He did not call in advance. He arrived at about 10:00 am on a Thursday. The owners were outside smoking. They said they did not have time. He got a clear sense that they just did not want to cut his hair. Perhaps they thought is was not "hip" enough. I am not sure but he was very disappointed that they treated him like he was not worthy of their services. I am sad because I really need to find a good barber that I can recommend to my guests.

Michael Lederman

Fantastic experience I had a great beard trim and my boy got a great haircut. Will be back for sure. It's great to have real barbers downtown

Randy Faught

Been going there for a year Dylan cuts my hair does a very good job very nice young man loves fishing so that's what we talk about when I get my haircut. The on line schedule is very covenant the price is very good gives me room for a tip

Curt Eastin

If you're looking for a great, classic haircut - Bulwark Barber may be your new favorite place. During my 5 or 6 visits, I've found Matt to be very passionate about his craft. He takes the art very seriously and has studied / mentored with some great, classic barbers. I never really understood why I couldn't get the haircut I wanted from other shops around town. Turns out the reason is that most shops that cut guys hair are staffed with stylists - not barbers. Nothing against stylists if that's the look you're going for, but they don't cut hair the same way barbers do.

Jessica Olson

Great interior design and setting awesome swagger and excellent male hair cuts.. Love it Paul is awesome

Levi Snyder

Really enjoyable experience and quality result. Scheduling was easy and professional through the website (no line or showing up to be told there was a multi-hour wait). Paul was my barber and he did a incredible job, cannot recommend him or this group enough, will be going back.

Jeremy Swagger

Awesome place, great vibe. Super precise, great experience.

Bryan Stacj

A quality cut from some quality people. Had great conversation and got exactly what I wanted! If you are in couer d'alene area, give these guys a shot.

Isiah Gosney

Marco Romero gives the best fade in town! Talked about being a barber since high school and made it happen! Wouldn’t go anywhere else if I had to!

steven owen

Tanner Beadles

All the guys are great, super nice, solid aesthetic. Marco kills my cuts every time

Mike Miles

The absolute best barber I've ever been to. These two gentleman are skilled and entertaining.

Stephanie Ishak

I’ve been taking my son to Paul at Bulwark for almost a year now and the service he provides exceeds our expectations !!! My son looks forward to sitting in his chair every month !!! He’s never had so many compliments on his hair!! Paul is always super patient And professional and we are always able to get an appointment for the time and date we request !!! I would highly recommend Paul to anyone that needs an amazing cut !

Joe Noreña

Absolutely incredible experience. Not only did Paul give a first-rate haircut and shave, but he was also accommodating and easy to communicate with as I set up an appointment. Not to mention, the shop and the whole atmosphere is great — everything from the layout of the space to the music in the background. Without a doubt, I’d recommend Bulwark Barbers.


Paul cut my 15 year old sons hair. He looks like a million bucks. Awesome place. Super friendly guys. Thanks Paul!

John Acen Lopez

Great guys....great cuts...... awesome service.

Steve Abbott

Excellent place to get hair cut

Jake Parrish

Love these guys. Solid haircut, great price, good conversation, and I always left feeling like a new man. I went there at least once a month for a solid year and a half and never once had a bad experience. Would recommend them for anyone looking to have a great cut with the authentic barbershop experience to go with.

blake s

Call ahead and get told, “Paul has an opening at noon, come in then” only to show up at 1150 to find out Paul is at lunch. No big deal. We gotta eat. He’ll be back at noon I’m sure. Still waiting at 1230. Paul might be here, cutting someone’s hair, or he might still be at lunch? No one has addressed me. I guess I’ll just sit here and stew until I’m acknowledged...or I’ll leave, because I actually have stuff to do today. Just some friendly advice. 1) don’t over promise 2) acknowledge your waiting customers. I was going to buy like $50 worth of products and return if I was treated well. Instead, I’m leaving without spending a penny and losing an hour out of my day off.

marty maher

Finally!! After years of searching for a decent barber.. I found Bulwark Barber, great communication!, easy to schedule an appt., reminders, and on top of that.. a phenomenal haircut and beard trim from Tyler, definitely setting up weekly clean-ups and regular haircuts. No hassle no frustrated stylists.. well worth every penny!!! Seriously guys if you want the best cut of your life.. go to Bulwark.. Thanks Tyler!!

Sabrina Mart

Hugh Sponar

Stephen is an amazing barber. He respects the old school traditions of barbering and is a wizard with the straight edge. I highly recommend him for your barbering needs.

Jon Randel

Great haircut, great guys, and a great shop! I don't go anywhere else, I'm in every two weeks to get trimmed up. I don't trust anyone else except Matt and Dillon too keep me looking good!

Lawrence Kniser


The set up of the shop is very cool, and I had a great experience! Thanks Marco

Schon Bazler

Bulwark is the best men’s barber shop in Coeur d’Alene because they give great haircuts. The barber will ask the customer how they want their hair cut specifically and may ask for a picture from the internet or somewhere else for a reference. This is to ensure that they get the details right and that the end result is as close as possible to what the customer asked for. After this, they start cutting hair with the quick hands of an expert, asking the customer along the way if it is looking up to their standards. When the barbers use the electric razor, they know how much pressure to use so that the razor is cutting efficiently but without any discomfort to the guest. Everyone has a different head shape and hair type, so not every haircut will look the same on different people, but the barbers do an excellent job of shaping each haircut to their specific client’s head and face shape. After the cutting, if a customer chooses a wash, they will get the loose clippings from their hair washed out in a sink. The sink has a waterproof pad for the neck, so it is not uncomfortable, and the barber washes the head with shampoo and two types of high-quality conditioner. The customer will also get a face wrap, which is a warm, damp towel that is put on the face which has a soothing feeling. However, if the customer chooses to not do the wash, then the barber will still blow-dry their hair, style it, and add some free hair product. After this, they will ask the client one last time if everything looks good, and they are done. You are left with a fresh haircut that will keep you looking good for weeks until your next visit!

Steven M

The owner Matt is an amazing person that has a true heart for his customers, and cares for everyone. If your considering going to Bulwark.... Do it, you won't regret it.

Jeremy Hastings

Precision and attention to detail! Had one of the best haircuts and face shaves of my life here with Steve.

Brian Mote

Ricky Heinlein

I went to Bulwark yesterday for the first time, after having another barber prior to my move to CDA, for 6 years. I had a GREAT experience, I will be going here for my cuts from now on. The full service was amazing. Paul was friendly and skilled. My cut was excellent and the service was relaxing and the environment was awesome. Excellent place for old world grooming!

Tom Dorr

Jason Mark at Bulwark is gifted, passionate and professional when it comes to helping me look my best. The shop is conveniently located, with easy parking, and the atmosphere is cool and trendy, and Jason is easy to visit with but, really, it all comes down to a good cut - and that's where Jason delivers.

Kyle Odom

Hands down the best haircut I've had in Coeur d Alene. They were friendly, great attention to detail, and they're passionate about what they do. If you're looking for a quality haircut, check this place out!

Romero Family

Marco was very professional and did an amazing job on my hair. Would highly recommend him to anyone. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment. I actually did a walk in.

If you want the best cut make sure to get Tyler. Tyler does an amazing job! Highly recommend.

If you're looking for the classic old school environment with a first rate cut, you can't beat Bulwark Barber. Go see Paul, who is truly a master in his field!

Jason Oliver

Love it they do a awesome Job at what they do love them

Carter Inouye

Amazing people here! They always give the haircut that I’m looking for, and always take their time on me to give me the exact style I’m looking for! And good news they all know what they’re doing! No where better than this place!

T.J. Nichols

brandon kramer

Marco is an amazing Barber with a great personality, conversation skills and an eye for perfection.

Hunter Kyler

Marco is killing it! Just got the best beard trim ever, only barbershop I’ll go to in cda is Bulwark Barber. Good job guys. Keep it up.

Britt Thennes

The best place to get a haircut in town they know what they are doing.


Super professional with a great atmosphere

Jacob Harris

I am 25, receding hairline, beard...I don’t have much to rock in the world of hair, so it takes talent to make me super thrilled for a haircut... Tyler has been a total privilege to find. The guy is very talented, super nice, and has massive skill in beard styling and fades. I literally drive an hour round trip just to go to Bulwark!

Daniel Jordan

This place is the best barbershop I have been to in my life. So friendly and inviting, great atmosphere. The haircut was awsome. Just make sure to book an appointment in advanced because they fill up fast. Thank you Dylan Parker!

Matt Andrus

Good enough

Damian Velasco

One of the best haircuts I’ve had. Paul is awesome!

Austin Lavier

Awesome group of guys that do an amazing cut. I’ve had several different guys cut my hair before business trips and they do an incredible job every time and help me put my best foot forward in my presentations. Having moved from Seattle, I can’t believe how good of a deal this is! Prices are so low for the kind of service they provide.

Greg Clark

Dennis Traxler

Cleanest men's haircut I've ever had. Awesome environment, and can shoot a game of pool while waiting.

Craig Miles

Cool place. Great hair cut. Attention to detail.

Jon Fenstermaker

Mara Eloff

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing service. This is a top notch barber shop. I showed the barber, Paul, one picture of the cut I wanted and he executed it PERFECTLY. I couldn't be happier with the industrial atmosphere, the kindness of my barber, and the quality of the cut, and the quality of the product used in my hair. I would recommend to anyone looking for a solid cut. It's amazing and the price is very reasonable. This is, hands down, the BEST hair cut I have ever had. Thanks Paul!

Larry Swartz

Stewart Hyndman

Not available when you need them make an appointment we will see if you fit our schedule...Ok going to a real barber

Austin Quinn

Matt and the entire shop were awesome. Best haircut I have had in years. Straight razer beard trimming and hot towel wash go above and beyond what is expected.

Anna Williams

Came in with my husband for a haircut while vacationing. This was THE coolest barber shop ever!!! Tyler was fantastic. Loved the vibe and the haircut.

Clinton Green

a SOLID cut. Every time.

Kirt Smith

First time ther exceptional service. Shout out to Paul thanks for your customer service.

Matthew Olson

Dylan was great, actually took the time with straight razor and did it right, which is great with sensitive skin.

Jacob Dukovich

Very friendly staff, and a great haircut!!

J Taylor

I went in with high expectations because of the reviews. My barber seemed like a cool dude but chopped up my hair and it literally hurt afterward. Like you might get with a new person at Cost Cutters or Great Clips. Actually Great Clips has never hurt so I'd say go there if your looking to go unscathed. If you actually want a decent haircut, I'd recommend Clean Cut a million times over.

Leo JoeSam

I went the other day to get my haircut and I didn't receive all the services what they said they do on Facebook and the Website. I didn't mind waiting the time, it was a 1 hour wait, they did not shave the back of my neck, no hot towel and I didn't get the scalp massage. The guys were nice and gave me a fairly decent haircut, but if your going to advertise the services, then provide them or remove them as part of the services.

Tiffany Hungerman

Felix Aripa

Best barber shop in coeur d'alene

Dave Higham

These guys are stand up fellas! With great service.

Joseph Glenn

I have been coming to Bulwark Barber all summer and these gentleman do not disappoint! They always give me exactly what I’m looking for. I go to school at the University of Idaho but I make the hour and a half long drive to get my haircut here because they really are the best! Thank you Marco for the fresh cut and the sweet fade!

Della Bennett

As a gift I left my husband a gift certificate for full to full haircuts and beard care service.when he went in for his service the gentleman that I bought the gift certificate from did not take care of my husband and anyway told him he was too busy my husband made an appointment and the gentleman did not show .when I tried to call him to find out what was going on here and then make him to make it right his phone is full and no one wants to deal with it at the shop. Going to try one more time to get my money back because his services are unethical and there is no integrity through this business downtown Coeur d'Alen


Val Wold

Had my hair cut for over a year by these guys. Felt like it was worth it to keep up their five star reputation.

Josh Caldwell

Scott Sturges

Luke Ruppel

frankie good

Had a great experience there the barber was awesome took his time and my hair turned out perfect I will definitely be back.

Eric Schenkenberger

Best haircut I've had in CDA. A traditional barber shop with a modern feel.

Right Wit

Step 1: show up Step 2: ask for Marco Step 3: get a dope cut that gets you mad ladies Step 4: repeat

Michael Bailey

Ask for Dillon, fantastic job guys!

Jared Martin

The best Barber shop in town. For the price of a haircut it's definitely worth every penny. They welcome you in and are very polite and talkative. I definitely would recommend this place to anyone needing a haircut or even just a trim because I know you will be satisfied looking like a new person.

Alexander Fairfield

Very cool place and professional barbers

Traves Dawson

I had some friends tell me to go here, and I put it off for a long time. All it took was one trip, and I can't get my hair cut anywhere else. The cuts are amazing. The crew is awesome. The environment is comfortable. And the services are amazing (That scalp massager). Give this place a shot if you've never been! You won't regret it!

Chris Patterson

Love the these guys! I have been going to Matt for quite some time now. He is great cutting hair and trimming beards/goatees. My son really enjoys Dillon! He takes the time to talk to him and listen. I highly recommend them! Be sure to go on their website and make an appointment. Now that they have been discovered, being a walk-in is very tough.

Joshua Schatz

Ryan Young

Great atmosphere. Great barbers. Paul is amazing did great and delivered exactly what I wanted very pleased with the new haircut. Great prices as well. Would highly recommend. Will be back again for sure.

Rick Grunden

Matt and the other barber both had separate personal emergencies and were closing early, but Matt decided to still give me a haircut and straight razor shave so I would look my best at Dave Noordam's memorial and it was much appreciated. The warm feel of decor and people working there really made me love the experience too. Matt was born and raised in Coeur d'Alene and I was happy to give a 40% tip!

Nick DeWin

Great place for a haircut!

Steven Minert

Best barber shop in Coeur D’ Alene!

Joseph McCliggott

Started with Matt! He was about 6 hours from being able to get me one day so I went to Dylan. Been with him ever since. Great group of dudes and Paul was the dude to refer me now he is 3/4 barber

Drew Hill

I made an appointment drove 45 minutes to get there for them to tell me that he went home sick and no one else could help me out I didn’t get a heads up telling me before I made the drive all the way out there

Johnny Smith

Marco did an A1 job on my cut today, would highly recommend going to him and this shop to anyone. Really cool vibe they got going in there

Fernie Soto

Robert Quezada

Great atmosphere and great staff! My dude Paul came in clutch for cutting my hair just in time for my wedding =) He went above and beyond. Easy to schedule and prices are reasonable. I highly recommend this place!

Bradley Williams

First the good, one barber there actually knows how to cut hair. The other three are clueless. I have been to Bulwark Barber on 3 separate occasions each sharing the same experience. Let me save you the time and money by recommending you go somewhere else. The first time I went in it was about 1:00pm, I asked how long the wait was the barber replied "Umm...hour and a half or 2 hours". That's fine I said you can put me on the list and I will come back. He replied they don't have a list and remember the order that people came in. This struck me as odd but I said I would be back in an hour and a half to be safe. Well to make a long story short I came back in an 1.5 hours and still had to wait an additional hour to get my haircut. All of that being said, I will say that the barber did a great job and took his time so I forgave the way that this barbershop is managed. The second time same story, 2 or 3 hour wait. I came back in 2 hours to be safe. This entire time the barber shop is staffed by 1 single person. There are 4 booths to cut hair in. It's the middle of the afternoon and they have a 3 hour wait, why on earth is there only 1 person working. So he finally convinces another barber to come in after a long phone call. Once that barber comes in he takes his time getting set up. I am clearly next up to have my hair cut. And then an old friend walks in and he jumps the line in front of everyone and the barber says don't worry about it he can squeeze him in real quick. So I have my timer on my phone running just to satisfy my curiosity. It takes him 54 minutes to cut his buddies hair. He finishes up and I'm next. It took him 6 minutes to cut my hair. It was one of the worst haircuts I've ever had. I actually went to another place in town to have them buzz my head afterwards because of the way it looked. I couldn't even finish tipping the barber before he had 1 foot out the door to Vape with his buddy whose hair he just cut. There were still clients behind me probably another 1.5 hours worth of haircuts and the barber takes a Smoke(Vape) break after 2 haircuts. Do they not have to report to anybody, is there no management here? The third time same story I said I would go back as long as I got the guy who cut my hair the first time but after they said it was a 2 hour wait I bounced and learned my lesson. Lastly, it is very unprofessional to say you open at 10am, when that is clearly not true. I get there early at 9:55am to be first in line and then I open the door and it is already a 2 hour wait. Please explain how you open at 10am, I arrive at 9:55am and there is a 2 hour wait with people already sitting there waiting inside of the barbershop. What time do you actually open??? Once again, unfair treatment of customers and preferential treatment to friends of the barbers. If the owner/management reads this please take some constructive criticism. I really want to support local business but you are making it hard to. I know I am not the only person who feels this way which is why I wrote this review. You have 1 good barber working there, hire more people like him. He is a very hard worker and takes his time doing things the right way. Also please use a LIST of whose next like every other barbershop known to man. The only reason I can think of not to use a list is so you can offer preferential treatment to your friends/bros. If you aren't close friends with the barbers here expect to be cut in front of when their friend rolls up. It's very annoying and unprofessional to treat customers this way. I can say that I won't be back after having three negative experiences here. I will consider removing this review if the owner/management makes changes that benefit customers.

If you are looking for a barbershop with easy appointments and great customer service, Bulwark Barber comes with it all! I just moved into town and I looked up local barbershops and I was able to make an appointment within a day and I was cut by Marco. On top of his great cutting and fade skills, he served me with joy and was professional. The place has very cool atmosphere and I’m happy to call it my barbershop now!
