Part of the Neighborhood

Eddie’s Haircut and Shave is located in the Upper East Side. It is one of the few traditional barbershops in New York City. Originally located on East 68th Street, this neighborhood’s favorite barbershop has been around before the surge of trendy new age salons in the area. Keeping traditional barbering alive by excelling in haircuts and rare barbering skills such as the hot towel shave, Eddie’s Haircut and Shave brings service with a smile and also professionalism. We provide today’s man with the experience of a barbershop from the past, a place where you can unwind and feel at home. Our staff is composed of highly trained barbers personally picked by Eddie, the shop owner and master barber, ensuring that every service is executed with precision and detail.

Abigail – Barber / Receptionist

Without a doubt, I am the hardest working person in the shop. And why exactly is that, you may ask? Well, in my mind, it’s because all of my colleagues have only one job to do, while I have…two…. I was hired at the front desk, but in between your typical receptionist duties, I closely […]
