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.

What the barbers have to say.

Eddie – Master Barber/Owner

Years ago, I worked in IT, and I was pretty good at it. But after a while I realized that I needed to think about another career; one that dealt with people and not with information systems.  When I was younger I learned how to cut hair, and that isn’t something you can ever forget […]

Helen – Master Barber

Most barbers will tell you that from the time they were young, that all they wanted to do was to cut hair and do shaves, and that working in a Manhattan barber shop has been part of a life-long dream. And while that may be true of most, it was not my experience, as being […]

Jacob – Master Barber

What is the difference between a barber and a photographer? If you answered “ quite a lot ”, that would be true in most cases  -– just not in mine. You see, it wasn’t all that long ago when I was a very accomplished photographer, but getting steady work in the city proved to be a challenge, […]

David – Master Barber

A typical barber probably spends their Day Off doing chores and catching up on sleep. But not me. When I am not in the shop, I am in a studio, painting and drawing and creating …..Art. How did I get to this point? Well, that’s a good question. I am originally from Kosovo, the country […]

Artan – Master Barber

I am the second person at Eddie’s who was raised in the country of Kosovo, the country in the Balkans region of Europe that split off from Serbia in 2008. Growing up, my father managed a neighborhood barbershop, where my brother and I worked on weekends, doing a variety of jobs to help us earn […]

Regy – Front Desk / Receptionist

Have you ever gone to a doctor’s office or anywhere with a Waiting Room — and swore that you would never go back there – because the Receptionist wasn’t pleasant? We probably have all experienced that at one time or another. Fifteen years ago, I immigrated to the US from the Philippines, and earned a […]

Abigail – Front Desk / Receptionist

If you have ever eavesdropped on conversations around you while getting a haircut or shave at Eddie’s, you may have noticed that every barber in the shop is able to chat with the person sitting in their chair in more than just a single language – we are the UN of barber shops! However, I […]

Chit Chat

Plant A Bigger Beard

There have been men all throughout history who have not been able to crack the code of growing a full beard. We know that it can be very frustrating to wake up and see that patchy scruff on your face. However, there may be some things you can do to get a thicker look. For […]

Invigorating Conditioner Feature

This month we have chosen to feature our Invigorating Conditioner! In the month of August the weather has been fairly hot. But it’s getting hotter, people are getting sweatier, and they tend to change their clothes a bit more often because of this heat. With that come more showers to soothe sweaty scalps. While the shampoo […]

Single Chair Barber Shops

Ever since the times of ancient Egypt, men have been going to barbers to get their hair cut and beards trimmed. There have been many venues in which barbers were able to perform their services. One that was of particular interest is the single-chair barbershop. This venue includes one chair, one barber, and one-on-one conversation. […]

Mud Light Feature

It’s time to get that barbershop feeling at home. How can you do that? Well, Eddie’s Men’s Grooming System has the perfect products for the job. One of our clients’ true favorites among our products is the Mud Light. It’s a special type of pomade made from all natural ingredients such as beeswax, castor oil […]

It’s a place for people to go when they need to rediscover their roots, no pun intended. Barber shops are older than America! Many of our clients live or work in New York City. […]

Eddie’s Hair and Scalp Cleanser

Last week we spoke about some great shampoo tips and tricks for people of all ages. One of the biggest things on that list was that the harsh sulfates in many shampoos cause hair to become more damaged and brittle. That’s why we came up with our own line of hair care products that have […]
