I go to the Underground Barbershop, and couldn't be happier with Biagio the barber. It's $15 for a cut, and he does in fact use a straight razor on the back of your neck. He's from Italy and has a fairly thick accent, cool guy. He's been trying to sell clothing on the side, but I don't know how well it's doing for him. It's all relatively inexpensive club wear he sells, not really my thing. The cool part is the shop location. It's in the bottom of a parking garage in the wall right where cars are exiting, fairly well hidden.

Fred's Reel Barbershop on Meridian road. And there is some misconceptions about training. I have been to a gal that got her license in Utah, and she is trained as a barber as well. State law there.

If you are stil looking..... Please check out Studio U at 4532 Overland Rd. in Boise (in the Country Club Plaza shop. center). We are a new business. Barbershop AND Salon. Not old school per se but you can get any barbering service from a licensed BARBER, including hot lather shaves with straight edge razor. Ask for Bette. I am the owner and a licensed barber. Thanks!

Just found a new barbershop that I have been going to. Doesn't look like a woman has set foot in the place for years. It's called Doc Scissors and it is on Orchard, just south of Emerald. Dead animals on the walls, hunting and sports magazines in the magazine rack, it's how I remember barber shops should look and feel. Definitely not a uni-sex kind of a place. Skilled with a straight razor and quick with a good story or two as well.

Underground Barber is $15 for a cut & he uses a straight razor.downtown 735 Idaho
Cool old school Italian guy
Personal experience...Boise Coop barber cut the top of my sons ear with a trimmer, so I
am not letting him use a razor ever. Hyde Park barber is old school but catch him before noon, if you know what I mean Erin Swenson at Eternity Salon 6th & Hayes is my recommendation for your wife!!

The place in Hyde Park--that's no joke about going early in the day. An afternoon cut will be awful thanks to the imbibing of the owner. My brother and a few male friends have experienced this first hand.

My husband has gone to the place near 34th & State and likes it.

On another note, but related in my book, Riebe's shoe repair shop on 10th between Idaho and Main is fantastic for shoe shines, repairs, re-soleing & heeling, and amazing old-fashioned service.

I went to the 9th Street BarberShop yesterday for the first time. VERY old school. Received an excellent cut for $15. He used a straight razor on the neck. He also offers hot shaves and beard trims. It is located at 210 9th Street between Bannock and Idaho. The owner/barber is Tom McReynolds. He is very personable and has been barbering since the mid-'80's.
