The Mission

At The Shave Barbershop, we are dedicated to providing affordably priced, unparalleled hair styling and grooming services that are tailored to every client and their lifestyle in a distinctively unique atmosphere. As customers are our number one priority, we value every client and their individual needs. The Shave Barbershop offers both a style and community experience as a true "neighborhood shop." Our social setting provides our customers with an opportunity to relax and enjoy their surroundings while experiencing a customized level of service. Our barbers and stylists pair modern day cutting edge grooming techniques with timeless traditional services, which proves in fact...."It Pays to Look Well".


A Traditional Barbershop

<<<< Same Day Service >>>>

No AppointmentS OFFERED

We operate like a TRADITIONAL barbershop, we do NOT take appointments. We operate strictly on a first come, first serve basis.   

The day you decide you need to see a barber or stylist, simply reach out to us by phone by dialing 404-565-0730 or stop by the shop in person to get your name on the shop's daily wait list.  In the very near future we will offer the ability to sign in online. No matter the method you choose to place your name on The Shave's daily wait list, we recommend that you contact us as early in the day as possible.  Our daily wait list fills up very quickly and we want to ensure you have the best chance to be seen on your prefered day.  Once you have provided us with your name and contact information, one of our team members or our online wait list manager will provide you with our current estimated wait time.  We understand your time is valuable, so UNLIKE A TRADITIONAL BARBERSHOP, we do not force you to wait at our shop (although we do have arcade games, a TV, great music, amazing conversation and lots of vintage Playboys to keep you entertained should you decide to hang out).  We encourage you to run your errands, shop locally, grab a beer next door, or simply wait in the comfort of your own home until it is time for your turn in one of our chairs.  A team member will personally call you or the online wait list manager will text a notification to your phone approximately 10 – 15 minutes prior to your service.

IMPORTANT: Please ensure you are able to be at The Shave within 15-20 minutes of our notification call or text as we are unable to keep your place if you have not returned when the barber is ready for you.

PLEASE NOTE: We accept our last walk-in 30 minutes prior to closing: as long as our daily wait list permits.

2017 Reuzel Scumbassador

Submission Video by The Shave's Helene Jean


The Shave's Helene Jean is always looking to sharpen her skills so that she remains one of Atlanta's most talented stylists.  Recently, Helene entered a competition sponsored by one our our industry's greatest pomade manufacturers, Reuzel, to become a "Reuzel Scumbassador". Helene was required to produce a short video demonstrating how to use Reuzel products while educating others on her technique.  If Helene wins, and we know that she will, she will trave to Chicago and will receive some hands on training from Leen, Bertus, George, Becca and Nelis.  Additionally, she will become an ongoing ambassodor for Reuzel!

Great Job Helene!
