After trying a handful of barbershops in Durham and being underwhelmed, I finally found a barber I trust in Nicole. I never have to worry about my look when I leave Renaissance. I drive well out my my way every month to see her - she’s great, and the rest of the Renaissance crew is welcoming, friendly, and all send folks out looking excellent. Nicole even fixed me up after my Tar Heels ruined her Blue Devils ~Coach K Retirement Tour~ (twice!) - a true professional! Don’t shop around, just book Nicole.

Best haircut I’ve ever gotten. Delano was super friendly and professional. He made sure to get the haircut exactly like I wanted. Couldn’t have asked for a better cut. He’s got a lot of talent. Will be going back for sure.

Nicole is the best barber. I most recently moved from the West coast and I was looking for someone just as experienced as my last barber - and I found Nicole aka Nikki. I appreciate Nicole taking her time with my haircut and giving me VIP treatment. I am very particular on a straight headline with a clean face and Nicole gets the job done each and every time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a really good barber in the Durham area.

I recently got my hair cut by Nicole! When a woman (especially and black woman) decides to cut her hair, it's an exciting but scary thought. To be honest, I am a dramatic person and I like to watch the process of thins happening. Nicole saw that I was nervous and stopped momentarly to show me what she was doing. She was amazing! My hair is very thick and kinky and she handled my hair with care and did an amazing job! I love my hair short and I am not sure I will be going back to long hair anytime soon. When you go, make sure you ask for Nicole!!!

Renaissance Barbershop is a great barbershop in local Durham area. I love this place you can go online and set appointment with any barber. It’s an unified environment all are welcome no matter what gender or ethnic origin. I will like to give my barber Nicole Moore a special shout out . Nicole is one of the nicest female barber’s out. Nicole is very passionate with her craft. She is very professional individual. She take her time with her client: I can just sit in her 💈 chair and she immediately knows exactly how to cut my hair. So go to Renaissance Barbershop and check Nicole out.

I tell you I have to update my review every time I have the pleasure of acquiring appointment at this place. I wish to God I was the type of person that could make or schedule appointments for haircuts and beard trims and stick to them. If I could I would look amazing as I do right now all the time. I actually end up with a different barber everytime I come here because again the times are so spread out. This time my cut and beard was done by a young man named Kendrick who I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with. That's the other thing you literally have a good conversation with someone while they are cutting your hair. I'm serious my hair and beard never looks as good as it does when I visit the Renaissance Barber shop. I don't have a clue who owns this place but I want to thank them for being a staple in my neighborhood. I have been here since 2006 and I think they were here before I got here. Please you've got to visit this place if you can find an appointment... They are constantly booked, So plan ahead.

Got a haircut here for the first time and while it wasn't exactly what I wanted, it was still decent. For the most part things were executed well. This shop could be taking COVID more seriously. A guest didn't have his mask on while he was getting a haircut and he walked out without it on. A barber himself also walked out of the back room without a mask on. The barber I got shook my hand which felt weird in a pandemic. He lined up my sides in a way I did not ask him to. I could have cleared that up better on my part but it was weird of him not to ask.

Great experience today with Kevin — even under COVID conditions! Kevin was ready for me at the door when I arrived, led me through hand sanitizing and temperature check, and took me to my chair. His skill is unmatched in my recent attempts for a nice cut and style. I'll certainly return to see him or any barber at Renaissance. Thank you!

Went to TIM for a haircut and he did not disappoint!!! The quality of service was top tier and they're taking all the right precautions during times of covid (masks, temp check, sanitizing). Check them out.

I will definitely continue to visit Renaissance! It is so easy to make an appointment online. My barber, Jason, was punctual and gave me a great cut. I hope the business continues to flourish because we certainly need it around here.

This guys have got it going on! I just opened a new Ashley Homestore in the shopping center so I went over to pass out flyers. Took a look around and was instantly impressed with how clean and simple the design of the barbershop was. Asked the guys about how much the cuts were and the prices are so cheap for the quality of cut you get here. Got me in with an appt that day and was very impressed with the results. Look forward to seeing them on a weekly basis to keep the cut looking nice and clean.

Walked in for a cut and Delano was able to fit me in. Amazing cut and great experience. Delano was great and gave me exactly what I wanted. Super organized and got me in fast and efficiently. Can’t ask for more from a barber shop.

I highly recommend Nicole. She provided me with haircuts for various events (i.e. prom, parades, graduation, family events, etc.). Outstanding attention to detail and I always leave with more confidence, looking much better than before. Never has she left me disappointed with the outcome of her service. Definitely schedule an appointment with her whenever you need a fresh cut for an event or even just to get cleaned up.

Just went to Renaissance for only the 2nd time. Found this place when needing a quick cut and my regular mobile barber was MIA. Kendrick cut me both times. Wasn't that impressed with the first cut. Lines a little off and not quite the clean fade I expected. Decided to go back again when I was in the area and could not get my regular guy. This time Kendrick really hooked a brotha up with a nice cut. Checked it out in the hand mirror before I left and thought, "not bad". Got home and looked closer and was more impressed. I would definitely recommend Kendrick and will probably go back to him more often.
