My daughter recommended Rock’s since I was in town for a couple weeks and would need some sprucing up. Had a nice pilsner while I waited, a good cut and wash, in a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.

It's a great vibe with the bar, music, and chill staff. Mel listened and asked questions about the haircut that I was going for and exceeded my expectations with a part, tapered down and a "duck tail" in the back. If you're trying to look extra special for an occasion, I would recommend checking this place out.

First time I've had my hair cut at a barber. Carrie did a great job. She helped me pick a new cut, completely different and fresh. Just love the pixie style. Looks years younger. Going back to get hair color.

I had a fantastic experience here! It was my first visit and I will definitely return. Brooke listened to what I wanted and gave me an amazing haircut. While I waited (briefly) Rock made me and my son feel incredibly welcome. And we met some amazing people both before and after my haircut. I can't recommend the place highly enough.

Very cool hair place. I've had appointments with three different providers and I've been very happy with all three. Plus there's beer (a free small pour, probably like 8-10oz) with your haircut. It's a great location, right across the street from the Corcoran street parking deck, so it's really easy to get to. Get an early one and you can even park on the street right outside.

I go to Mel. Very reliable and seems to be getting better each time. I go monthly just as I need it as opposed to wait until it looks like hammered shed. Mel Listens to what I want and knows how to do it. I told her I wanted it to look like Brad Pitt's hair and she told me well she can cut my hair but she couldn't help me with the rest of it. I get a monthly haircut and a beard trim on she charged me 55 bucks and I give her at least 10 bucks tip depending on my mood. I've been going there for about a year

Christian was kind and friendly and gave me the best hair cut I've had in a long time. Gave me some great suggestions for products and how to care for my hair as well. Will be booking again soon!

Best hair cut/beard trim I’ve ever had and why I keep coming back. I’ve been coming to Mel for nearly a year; a real professional I can trust so I sit back, relax, have a chat, and know I’ll step out of Rock’s looking great! Love the updates to the patio and the interior renovation, they clearly care about making great even better.

My 7.5 year old son just got his first barber shop experience with Krystin on recommendation of my sweetheart, Dan. My son had a great time, his hair looks great, Krystin did a fabulous clean up job on an overgrown head of kid hair, and all the staff were awesome. Bonus points for the super fabulous and wide open space with a great look.

It's a bit pricey, but worth it. I've met three fantastic stylists here that can translate my babbling into the haircut I want. (really, truly a customer service miracle) I've met one other outside of Rocks that can manage that. It's a lovely little salt space, the arts neato, the vibe is impeccable, and if you want a beer, you get one with your haircut! If you like styling products they've got a fantastic selection. They do beards as well. (trouble trimming yourself? Have them show you how to do it!) Queer friendly! Stellar service! Quality product! Worth every penny.

No matter the stylist, you're going to get a quality cut. I used to go to one person every time, but scheduling forced me to find someone else. Since then, I feel confident that anyone will do a great job.

Tony is truly exceptional. His skills and expertise are unparalleled, making him the absolute best. Whenever I schedule a haircut with him, I am always left completely satisfied. Tony listens attentively and executes my desired style with precision. His talent is truly remarkable, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone in search of an amazing hairstylist.

Just had my first experience at this shop. Rachael was kind, provided attentive conversation and was thorough with my cut and beard trim. Shampoo and a draft beer was included with the competitive price. The atmosphere was lively and relaxed at the same time. I’ll definitely be coming back.
