Daniel Castorena Jr.

Cool little old school barbershop. I have been going here for years to the same Barber, Milosh. Friendly staff with a friendly Dog in the window. I have an appointment at 3:30 tomorrow and when you bool online you get and email reminders in case you forgot to plug it in your phone calendar. Great Barbershop.

I've been going here for 9 years to the same barber. Love it

Friendly, courteous staff and very cheap prices. I was very surprised to have this barber put in the extra effort to get my cut right the very first time.Great place to get a haircut.

Ross Price

Tara gave a stellar cut and good feedback. It is unfortunate they only take cash though.

Jonah Murray

These people know how to cut (men's) hair. A fantastic hair cut for a very reasonable price. The online reservation system makes for a convenient visit.


Good haircuts, stopped going because prices kept going up.

Alex Linden

This place is exactly what you need and more. Kaila is fantastic. Just go. Cash only.

Adam H

They know what they're doing. Justin's beard is epic. And the hot straight razor shave is better than sex.

Kaila Kwon carefully cuts my hair and trims my beard. She takes her time to ensure that she does the best job possible every single time. She offers suggestions and tips for care in between visits. I am extremely pleased.


Ryan P

I'm very picky about who I let cut my hair. Most places find someway to f--- it up. Ryan Fields of Esquire is definitely worth the money. Ever since I moved back to Chicago, he's been my go-to guy for getting a good cut.

Connor Hurley

Great friendly barbers. The online reservation system is really convenient

Jonathan Garcia

Joshua is my go to guy - very detailed with his haircuts. Great service and always get to see the pug when I go

Quick and friendly service with busy old school Barbershop vibe

TJ Medel

Probably one of the best spots to get a haircut in the city. The crew there is super friendly and the environment is vintage, everything you'd expect in a barbershop. The prices are a bargain compared to the quality of the cuts. I recommend Esquire to everyone

Phillip Lowe

Just moved to the area and needed a new barber. Happy to have found this place. Ricky gave me a great cut at a fair price and I was able to book online. Also, I want this dog’s life...

Best Barber Shop on the north side. Book appointments online. Very skilled barbers.

Mike Rammer

Milos is a craftsman. The rest of the staff are lovely and skilled as well. Online appointments is a bonus, too!

Curtis Shepherd

This place has legit barbers call ahead or schedule an appointment online. I promise you will not be disappointed. These guys know what they are doing.

Lynn Cooley

Went in today for a beard trim and was not disappointed. Kaila did a great job. This place is friendly and laid back and the staff knows what they are doing. Two things to know: cash only and book ahead using the scheduler linked on their website. Had a great experience and will definitely be visiting again.

Andy Margolis

Keith Kidston

The best barbershop I've ever been to. They're are all cool, and they give great, affordable haircuts with no fussing around. That's everything a barbershop is supposed to be. If that's not enough, it's right next to public transit and their website works great for scheduling. There isn't anything a sane person could complain about.

Luke Hannafin

Ron B

Bennett Logan

I'm here every two weeks and Josh always takes care of me. Great service, nice old fashioned barber shop.

Jake Munroe

Milosh is The Man!!!

Javier Garcia

Overpriced for a service any other barbershop can do at least use a hot towel or wash my hair after you’re done cutting my hair. Not impress. Basic haircut for 40 plus dollars. Outrageous.

Wil Wells

Aaron is awesome

Meir Feit

I got a sick haircut from Riki! Great vibes will deff come back

Devin Henderson

Great haircuts and Aaron rocks!

Monique Hill

Good food

Jason Obin

Great barber, Aaron is a pro! Really cute pup that sits near the window chilling out each day

Patrick Schulze

I'm always hesitant to try a new barber, but after I looked at the reviews for Esquire Barber Shop I decided to give it a shot. Turned out to be one of the best cuts I have had . 100% will be going back to these guys.

Alaina Alberts

FROM ONE BARBER TO ANOTHER... I visit Chicago a couple times a year. Normally i don't trust getting my haircut at random shops...i did a lil research and found this place. I was looking for the old school vibes, quality barbers and just overall a good experience...they delivered! My barber was Kaila, she did a solid job, my haircut was clean and she knew what she was doing, very detail oriented. I recommend this spot, I'll definately stop back through next time in Chicago.

K Beaulieu

Alexis Bressan

I've been going there for 5 years now and have had nothing but but perfect cuts from Milosh. The attention to details is incredible and you can tell Milosh takes great pride in his work, even after a long day of work. I could disappear for 6 months and he would still remember how I like my hair and what I do for a living. Great guy and great place - I'll be going there for as long as I am in Chicago.

Brandon C

Barbers here cut great! Can't really go wrong with any just as long as you know what you want, they'll cater to you accordingly. No complaints so far. They finish every haircut with a clean neck shave with a razor along with a hot towel. The barbers love to talk to their clients so don't be shy to pick up a conversation. They even updated their appointment system which is awesome! Just keep in mind that slots fill up quickly so make appointments with at least a few weeks in advance.

Israel Machado

Evan Johnson

Online appointment booking, amazing barbers and a token pug.

Yama Rahim

Darren Unrein

Always do a great job. Just a little pricey.

Brysen Kawamura

I recently discovered this place. It has a small business vibe which I like. Justin cuts my hair and he is amazing. I consistently get great haircuts. They recently raised their price from $18 to $23 but that is okay because of the great haircut. Make sure to book your appt in advance because justin fills up quickly

Bradley Crandall

Jeffrey Waterman

Went here because I was headed to the festival and needed a haircut in a pinch. Though I did have to come back, they weren't snotty about it like a lot of shops can be. Was cut by the redheaded girl. (Whose name I can't recall, but she was two chairs in and married to the shop owner.) She gave me exactly what I wanted (the Seth Cohen classic) after finishing a nice Adam Levine-y bald fade on the man just before me. Girl knows what she's doing.

Miguel Calderon

Nice local barbershop that only does cuts by appointments.

George Just

Danielle Perez

So relaxing I may or may not have fallen asleep in the barber's chair. Passionate and detail oriented.

John Mitchell

Alan Neff

Paul D. Leon

Very professional barber shop, great service. The thing that will keep me coming back though, is this: While I was getting a haircut, a man who was clearly homeless came in to the shop. The staff greeted him by name and talked with him while he sat for a moment in the waiting area. He stayed awhile and then left. I want to give my money to a business where the staff are friendly to someone struggling and looking for a warm place to sit on a cold day. Thank you.

Sean Frett

Jairo Villa

Loved this place! It’s hard to find a great barber open o. Sunday’s. Service was awesome, my stylist really asked a lot of questions about what I️ wanted, how I️ style my hair and gave some great tips for how to wear it. Definitely coming back.

Gus granchalek

Justin is prime

Alejandro Reyes

Michael Peck

Exactly what you'd want in an old-school barber shop—quick, clean, and reasonably priced, plus some quality conversation and a few laughs. That's why it's become my go-to place for a cut.

Stef Potter

Eric Mosser

David H

Great neighborhood barber shop.

Adam Thompson

Adrian Spencer

The woman who cut my hair here was awesome. I walked in to schedule a future appointment and she politely directed me to their booking website which I didn't know about. I booked an appointment with her and she listened to what I wanted and made adjustments based on my comments.

New Review: this is been my favorite haircut place for a long time, but I felt the need to edit my review because of how unsatisfied I am with my most recent haircut - I truly believe it is the worst I’ve had in a really long time. Pretty much every day since I got it I’ve discovered a new bizarre element of the haircut. Altogether this is the opposite of how I like my hair done and what I communicated to the barber. I’m tempted to give one star except for the fact that I’ve previously liked this place. But seriously - for such a well reviewed barbershop, i’m incredibly disappointed. Former Review: Had a haircut and shave with Aaron Johnson. Great conversation and great haircut. Couldn't be happier.

sjp stevenjohnsonphotography

Smooth and simple. Just like I like it.

Brad Coates

Had an appointment with Aaron Johnson just before closing. Super down to earth guy, excellent haircut with great conversation. Highly recommend this place

Nat Duran

Milosh is my go-to for a great fade, but everyone here does great work and the environment is open and friendly!

Dylon Busser

They fit me right in to their schedule on very short notice. You literally cannot beat the price. Ask for Melanie - she did my hair, and did an awesome job. Highly recommend.

Robert Ross

Robert Caya

Carlos Faxas

ask for Justin, you will not be disappointed.

John Corrigan

More of a salon than a barbershop.

Joe Loza

This barber shop is fantastic! I moved to Chicago two years ago, after going to a different barber shop every few weeks for about a year I finally found one that I love. Esquire is hands down the best barber shop I've ever been to, the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, they ask you questions about your hair and cut it exactly how you want it. If you have a goal in mind with how you eventually want your hair to look like they'll help you achieve it. I honestly couldn't ask for a better barber shop. If I still haven't convinced you to go to this barber shop I thought I should also mention that they have a dog there named Nyla.. 10/10 would recommend!

Aaron Kaat

I loved this place. Good atmosphere, great conversation, and a nice haircut. Next time, I get a straight razor shave!

Jeffrey Weber

Brian Kerr

I've been regular here with Milosh for 10 years. Online reservation system is precise - get there on time. You won't have to wait and neither will the next customer.

Scott Stirton

Wonderful place - good haircuts at a reasonable price, done by good, friendly barbers. Milosh has been cutting my hair for years, and I hope he'll be doing it till I'm bald! PS: Hopleaf's just around the corner.

Troels Soendergaard

I love this spot. Unassuming and great service. I've been going here for some time now. Tara is the best! Won't go anywhere else.

Eric Fleming

Michael Waechter

Timothy Cox

Got my hair cut here for 6 years, and would recommend to anyone, as long as you have a sense of humor. Fun and friendly environment, and never got a bad haircut. Make an appointment on their website in advance, as appointments book up quick. Unfortunately had to move out of the area (sorry, Milosh), but will try to get back when I can.
