Schedule ahead! This place fills its chairs quickly. If they had time for walk-ins it would be an excellent place to chill, play pool, take in one of the most magnificent sunset views of downtown Durham, and drink good beer. My Barber was excellent. She knew how to gently nudge me towards a sharp, modern cut and gave the beard a neat shape-up 🧔🏻 It was a comfortable and enjoyable experience for someone who still gets haircut anxiety at 30. Will edit & rate 5-star if consistent.

Rock’s is the real deal! I have been going to this shop for 3+ years now and I have never once felt my stylist cut my hair wrong! Great location in the heart of downtown Durham with walking distant to restaurants and stores. Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and best of all I always feel like a million bucks leaving this place! If you need a fresh cut, or trimming of your beard look no further and find out why this place rocks! 👌🏻

My husband and son routinely get their hair cut here. I took my son tonight and wow what a neat atmosphere. Oliver does a great job. He spent 45 minutes on a kid's cut. He does a wonderful job on my husband's beard as well. Highly recommend!

Great place for a haircut and/or shave, and you get a beer included! (And a good beer at that). It's my go-to.

I have a wedding to attend this coming weekend, so I wanted to look extra sharp. Calvin did an excellent job on my hair and beard, and was very fun to talk to as well! 10/10 would recommend

Ask for Calvin for the best cut. What a cool place, you can order beer while you wait and drink it while you get a snip. They also do a helluva job with beards. A fantastic shop in the heart of Durham.

Cool place. NIce people. They were booked up the day I walked in for mustache trim / shave & Faith was able to work me in on the spot. She did a great job. Highly recommend.

Best haircut you get! Dave does an amazing job with my really fine hair, he's great at fades and a lot more! Check him out.

Free beer with hair cut. All barbers/stylists are great- listen to what you want. Chill setting.

Been coming here months, love this place. You get a haircut, wash, free product and even better, a BEER OF YOUR CHOICE! All for $30! Faith has been cutting my hair and she does an excellent job. She, and the rest of the workers, are very friendly and knowledgeable, and they talk about whatever you want, not only "professional" topics like the big hair chains. This is absolutely my go-to spot lately. Can't recommend it enough.

My first hair cut and beard trim in Durham at Rock’s was two-thumbs-up-great. The shop is comfortable, low-key modern, and on brand for Durham. Everyone is so warm and pleasant. Morgan was and will be my stylist! She has a great personality and very professional. She listened, provided feedback, and gave me exactly what I asked for in my hair cut and beard trim. She is talented and very detailed oriented. I’m so glad I found a great place with great people to keep me looking stylish and professional. Thanks Rock’s and Morgan. 🧔🏻👍🏼

I liked the concept here. Designed simply but eye catching and effective. No draught beer, all craft bottles. Be careful if you call an Uber as there's a front and back entrance both on main roads.

I love Rock's. If you're looking for a skin fade, no one is better than Powell! Cool atmosphere, great people, best haircuts!

I am so very happy to have found Rock's. We live in a small town west of Durham. My teenage son had several awful experiences trying to get haircuts in town he wanted in the past few years. I found Rock's through a Google search for "cool, young place for teen boys to get a haircut" and that is what we found. The lovely person I spoke with on the phone was very helpful matching us up with what son needed in Master Stylist, Powell. He met with son for consultation and he treated him with respect. Asked what he wanted, showed him what he would do to get there. We were very impressed when he didn't even blink when son told him what he wanted. Never had that happen before! Appointment was next day and Powell delivered, giving my teen son the haircut he wanted. I can't say enough good things about this place. Well worth the drive to Durham.

I recommend the heck out of this place. Very friendly service, very professional, very talented stylists. Just an overall great hair shop.

While the bar wasn't open due to covid, my barber/stylist made the visit very comfy and we actually shared common travel location stories. Faith (I think - I'm horrible with names) was an expert barber as well. Clean, sanitary, skilled, and above all personable. I'd recommend, anytime.

Lexus takes her time and consistently does a great job with my hair. I've tried Pedro williams, Dennis Best, and other random shops throughout the area but have stayed with Rock's since I tried it out.

Recommended to come here by a friend. Lexus was super, listened to what I wanted & advised me on what would work with my hair.

Beer options are great. Be sure to get your free 8 oz pour with your haircut and ask for Kisa for the best haircut. It's definitely a huge leap above in the barber shop experience. I followed Kisa from another shop and this place is the best place to get your hair cut.

First time checking out the place but will be repeating my visit when back. A cool vibe that fits well with the city in selecting interior decor. Fun to be out downtown. Stop in early for a drink on the patio. Was very happy with my cut. My stylist took her time and was detailed/thorough. Worked with my wheelchair. They did a great job with covid protocols too.

Great place. Great people. M’hagony hooked me up with one of the best fades I’ve ever had. Highly recommend

Rock’s is second to none. The quality of the barbers/hair dressers is top notch across the board no matter who you see. Great service and great location!

Great barbershop, they have a really good atmosphere, and the employees are friendly. If you get there early they have a pool table and a bar inside so you can grab a drink while you wait. Claudia is who I see for all my haircuts and she is great, she has been cutting my hair for years and I would recommend her to anyone.

Best place for a hair cut I’ve been to since living in Tokyo. A side note to anyone who’s curious about hour of operation, they’re open 8-6 weekends, 8-8 on weekdays. Just for the few reviewers who couldn’t read the website, google, the app, Yelp, the entrance, it’s pretty visible :)

Great haircuts! A bit pricey but excellent quality and you really get what you pay for. Morgan is a phenomenal hairdresser, has given me great cuts every time but you probably can't go wrong with anyone who works there.

Highly recommend Morgan at Rock's -- I have thinning curly hair and most stylists I'd seen in the past didn't know how to work with it. She gets it intuitively! Rock's also carries solid pomades, hair creams, etc. and the general vibe is very relaxing & casual.
