Big plus they have a parking lot. Nice shop and friendly.
Clean shop, Chill atmosphere. They have their own parking lot and a convenient way of making appointments. They will work with you to get you in for an appointment.
Great people....great vibe....great cuts!!
Great haircuts. Easy to schedule. Most importantly, I do not have to wait and it is fast. Leonard does a great job!
Amazing service, very friendly!
Best place I've ever been to, made me feel like a new person. Thank you Miguel Cembrano.
Get a cut from Leonard you won't be disappointed. He's the truth. Easy way to set appt online.
Clean barbershop! Haircuts are mostly by appointments and they do a great job of getting your cut done in the allotted time without making you feel rushed. Very nice atmosphere. You won't be disappointed with your haircut. I'll definitely return next time I'm in San Diego!
Best barbershop around . super skilled and very professional 10/10
Great barbershop with great atmosphere. Be sure to schedule an appointment in advance or you may have a long wait. They will take care of you regardless.
Visiting SD from out of town. The staff was extremely friendly and inviting. I'm half Black half Irish and frequently barbers have trouble cutting my texture of hair... but not Leonard. I told him I wanted "a skin tight fade with a long part on the left and as close as possible on top". He went to work and nailed it. One of the best fades I have ever had. Looks like it was painted on. The shop itself has a homily Afro-hip-hop artistic feel and they were playing some nice upbeat jazz music. I'd recommend the shop to anyone visiting the area.
After I moved to SD I tried countless barber shops; thank god I found this place! Highly skilled, friendly barbers in a cool atmosphere. I like being able to make and cancel appointments through an app.
Rene & Brandon are two of the BEST Barber's I've ever been to!! Great shave and clean even lines.
Finding the spot took a minute cause it's just behind El Cajon Blvd. The place is official, we'll done. The barbers were professional and the clientele seemed welcoming and woke. My apt was with Leonard who was right on time, professional. We chatted briefly over some images of the shape up I wanted for my big Choo that's growing out. The first chair barber also dipped in to share an image of what turned out to be the very same look I wanted, welcoming. Folks discussed topics of the day. Leonard went to artist mode, professional. Within the scheduled 30 minutes my cut was complete and looked good. Paid the man, thanked the man and said I'd be back.
Good folks, good work, positive and inclusive environment
Brandon Classic Man Barber is a Mystro with the clippers, shears, razor you name it. You will definitely be satisfied when you leave.
Best haircut ever! Juan is a great barber and I loved the atmosphere. Will be my barber for life.
Great barbershop with some enlightened conversation. Feed your mind while you get freshly faded. Word up to Juan.
Great service! Just make appointment online never wait for a haircut again.
Every Barber in this shop is skilled! Juan is my guy but if he went on vacation, It wouldn’t matter which artist I used! Yes, I said artist because that’s what great barbers are! This shop is more than just a place to get a haircut, it’s a place to discuss everything from race to politics, from sports and music to education and style!
Brandon and Rene take such great care and artistry with my haircuts. I also like that you scheduled your appointment.
If you're looking for a barber shop that has experience cutting African-American hair this is your place. The one downfall is while walk ins are welcome youll wait a few hours to get cut and the price is higher than other black barbershop average price per haircut is $40 (not including tip)
Juan is the bomb dot com. I think everyone there is pretty nice. Cool , clean atmosphere, nothing crazy. Have been there about three times already, definitely plan on making more trips.
Leonard is the man to go he's highly skilled highly talented and a very friendly Barber. If you ever need to get a haircut don't waste your time with other Barbers around in the area instead come to freshly faded barber shop and get Leonard that man is the best at cutting hair he takes his time he even went out of his way to recreate a hairline for me which I was very nervous about doing but after seeing the result I was happy I went with him. The atmosphere in the place is very relaxed the wait times are pretty decent and all the barbers in the barbershop are all friendly after my experience for the first time here I have to say this was the best I ever had I will be coming back every two weeks to get up lineup with Leonard.
My kids have amazing haircuts!!! Leonard was the barber that cut their hair and he did a great job! My boys loved it! We will definitely come back again!
Nice people, friendly, and most importantly - timely. Got a great haircut. Only complaint, their online price says 25 for a haircut. Guy charged me 30.
My son n I always get our cuts here Leonard is awesome with mohawks for my son and Rene is my boy n always gives me a good shave n face message
Guy (I don't name drop!) did a hack job on my hair, especially at the back, which was lop-sided, not even. I don't think you should have to go home and get a pair of scissors to even your hair. You might get a better deal at one of those $10 dollar shops like a friend of mine uses. Another customer wrote "arrogant". I'm not sure that is it but who knows? Maybe I picked the wrong barber. Anyway, the choice is yours. Like any profession, there are other options around San Diego. I will say, they do stick to their appointment times.
Leonard did a great job. Especially with the side design. I will try something more complex next time.
Juan is the man ! And everyone else in the shop is very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend it
I won't go anywhere else - best barbers in San Diego! And being able to schedule your appointment online is soooo easy and convenient.
I’m new to the city and let myself go pretty badly during the moving process. I’ve always wanted a spot where I could trust the barber to do their thing. Juan is that guy, he knows his stuff; got a perfectly cut line and fade and a style I hadn’t tried before but definitely will again. Everyone else in the shop was laid back/easy to talk to as well. All-around a great spot. Oh, and they keep their schedules tight - always appreciate that.
I was there for the transformation from barber shop to spoken word space, so I can't say what they are like as a barbershop... but the merchandise is sooooooooooooo incredible. Do not enter if broke. Or unless you wanna be.
Really cool shop, super accommodating barbers, and I got a killer cut from Brandon (Classic Man)! Can't wait to go in for a design
I decided to give freshly faded a try as they had good reviews. I did not personally have a great experience and should not have paid for my hair cut. The staff was friendly but the person cut my hair did not do a great job and really didn't even cut my hair.It was more like he cleaned it up and it is also is uneven. I'm was not pleased with my experience and I will not be going back and going to my regular Barber down in national city
Rene was great, had the same haircut for 6 years let him pick what he wanted and I loved it. All the guys that work there are cool too
I have been getting cuts here for several years. The quality of atmosphere and people are exceptional. You will be accepted and treated well, with an experience inspired by only what a true barber provides. In my case, I schedule primarily with Rene. His cuts have always been exceedingly high quality, with exact precision, and careful attention to taste. If you want a real barber, go to Freshly Faded.
Great atmosphere and great barbers! I used to live in North Park and now I drive from Carlsbad to still get my cut from Juan.
No one's perfect, there's room for improvement. Let's not get hung up on how many stars a place received; especially, when using it against a customer who maybe didn't necessarily get the best cut/experience they expected.
Brandon is the man right here. Always on point, his skills and knowledge about hair make me feel comfortable. I trust my hair to his blessed hands.
Thank you for always getting me look fresh Classic Man!!
Great barbershop. They pay attention to detail and takes their time, making sure you get a quality cut.
First time there. Super friendly guys. Very professional and good at their job. Definitely make an appointment. They are so busy walk-ins are hard to come by.
Great cut & shave. Never been more relaxed than laying back and getting a shave here. Best nap ever!
Great atmosphere and professionalism is top notch. Homer definitely hooked me up.
Fades on point !! D Banks the owner is a awesome host and run his shop very professional
Great staff, efficient appointments work great which reduce wait time.
Derek gave me the best haircut hands down. The place is rad too.
Always do a great job and I love the atmosphere they provide.
Dope barbershop. Cool vibe. Talented barbers. This is the place to go
Gr3at barbers either one you go to is awesome. I use a guy name Homer yep like the Simpsons tv show lol
Chris will have you lookin right and takes his time and works on perfection
Came to SD for a wedding and got my haircut here. Best place ever!!! Wish they were in Asheville so I could come by all the time. Amazing experience and I highly recommend them.
Derrick is the best! Always welcomed and cultured ambiance
Each minute and hours of my day were worth it. There’s a prestigious barbershop that made me the happiest customer alive. The accommodation of my request was fascinating and outstanding. When the barbershop started doing his job upon making me look good, I appreciated it with all of my heart. I was honored to be at their shop were nice and kind people reside. They bring out the best out of them. I’ll recommend their expertise and professionalism to my friends.
Highly recommended, recently came from LA needed to find a new spot. Only thing is I think I forgot to tip man....but hopefully this review will help out going to be coming here again for sure in the future
Wasn’t the best haircut I’ve gotten. The barber didn’t really take his time to blend everything all around, there are patches of places he missed with the razor, and it felt rushed. I’m probably gonna shave it, but at least hair grows back. I’d try it again to see if anything changes, but would have to debate it as $35 for a haircut with scissors seems a little too much.
This is a good barbershop 💈 good vibes, locally owned and operated. My barber today was Leonard he did a good job today, the only thing I missed was styling my hair and edging me up with a razor. Other than that it was a good experience l, I will definitely be back! ✊
I love this place for my hair cut! And the people here are so chill! Great vibes here!
Nice shop, good vibes, and friendly barbers. Skill Level - 💯... For some reason my hair doesn't grow back as fast when Juan cuts it. 😉😂😂😂
I don't know of any other barber shop that you can get a fresh fade and your chakras aligned (yes, that's sage that's burning) all at the same time. Love this Black Owned Business. Derrick is amazing with my low cut. Always on point even with my clear hair issues. I've recommend several sistas to him. Love the energy here. Even though I always seem to be the only Queen in the shop I have NEVER felt bombarded with a bunch of alpha male energies. Feels like I'm surrounded by my brother's that would happily beat up the school bully for picking on me 😍 nothing but love
Had an amazing experience at Freshly Faded. The staff and the shop are so above and beyond, you feel welcomed the minute you walked in. Larry gave me a great cut, one of the best I’ve had. I highly recommend this shop for anyone who wants a quality cut and great service. Great local business. Found my new spot.
Never received a bad cut. Very chill vibe and friendly staff. Owner cuts with his crew and it's a very family friendly environment. A business you feel great supporting.
Great shop with amazing professional barbers. Very welcoming, quick services and clean. Atmosphere is super chill and the best music! Thank you!!!
I've been coming here for over a year now and Brandon does an amazing job every time. The atmosphere is very nice and welcoming. Brandon is very talented...read this and 147 more
