The Short Version: Whether you’re going on a job interview or a first date, it’s important to look your best to show that you care and set yourself up for success. Birds Barbershop can help you make an excellent first impression and blow your competition out of the water with your stylish good looks. This Texas-based salon is proud of its roots and encourages Austin residents from all walks of life to come in and sit a spell. Birds Barbershop offers a casual and friendly place where you can get a stellar haircut, try a new color or style, and put a little spring in your step before heading out to tackle your day.

I met my future sister-in-law at college orientation, and we struck up a friendship because our class schedules were similar. My twin brother says he met her there, too, but she has absolutely no memory of him.

If you saw his driver’s license picture, you’d understand why. When we were 17, my brother had unbrushed shoulder-length hair that constantly fell in his face. It wasn’t his best look. However, by the time we got to college, he’d gone back to his typical short, spiky hair, and that’s when he made a lasting impression on my friend. They were dating within a year.

Birds Barbershop can give you a new eye-catching look that’s sure to attract attention.

When it comes to attracting a date, a haircut can make all the difference. It could be an instant turn-on, or it could lead someone special, like my brother, to be overlooked. Fortunately, your hair is one of the easiest things to change about yourself, and many top-notch salons have supported daters in making a better first impression on the world.

Birds Barbershop can help singles change things up and become more attractive and confident than ever before. This welcoming Texas salon specializes in giving customers what they want and going the extra mile to make sure every day is a good-hair day.

Whether you’re looking for a cut, a trim, a styling, or some highlights and color, you can trust the Birds Barbershop team to pull it off with remarkable care and skill.

The motto at Birds Barbershop is “For All Y’all,” and they encourage everyone to rock their own styles. You may come in feeling nervous about a date or uncertain about your appearance, but the team of stylists will make sure you feel like a rockstar by the time you leave.

Award-Winning Cuts & Color to Give You a New Look

Birds Barbershop opened in 2006 to change the way people saw their hair. This team of empathetic hair stylists sees every haircut as an opportunity to be creative, try something different, and make a statement.

Over the years, the barbershop has become a neighborhood institution known for its affordable prices and good vibes. Birds Barbershop currently has 10 locations in Austin and Houston, and all of them reflect the funky, joyful, and artistic spirit of the city’s residents.

Birds Barbershop’s cozy and funky atmosphere makes people of all backgrounds feel at home.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a walk-in or a regular — you’ll always receive an enthusiastic hello from the Birds Barbershop team and get the star treatment from wash to cut.

Birds Barbershop’s stylists treat every customer like an old friend. They listen carefully to what you want and aim to please by creating unique hairstyles that speak to your personality and suit your lifestyle. It could be a bright pink coloring, or it could be subtle highlights. While the stylists are happy to make recommendations, they always put the customer’s opinions first and are willing to be bold and adventurous if that’s what the customer wants. All you have to do is tell them your ideas, and they’ll make it happen.

Birds Barbershop can accommodate all types of hair needs from “I just want a quick cut” to “let’s do a full makeover.” This community-driven salon can trim, color, curl, gel, and highlight your unique brand of beauty during a no-muss no-fuss appointment.

As the team says, “Happy employees make happy clients,” and Birds Barbershop excels at turning newcomers into regular customers. This should be your go-to destination if you want to wow your date with a stellar haircut.

Take Revitalizing Hair-Care Products Home With You

Birds Barbershop offers a number of in-house services from buzz cuts to short cuts to long cuts, and it’s one of the most reasonably priced boutique salons in the Austin area. Customers who are really looking for something special can add blowouts, deep conditioning treatments, beard conditioning treatments, shaving, hairstyling for special occasions (prom, weddings, etc.), and coloring.

Birds serves over 25,000 people each month and has been named one of the top barbers in the country.

Coloring is by appointment only because it can be quite a time commitment — especially if you’re getting a creative color or corrective color, which can take up to three hours.

Of course, you don’t have to stop by Birds to give yourself a quick makeover before a date. Birds offers beauty products that can help you take good care of your hair from home, and it can also offer great gifts for someone you care about and want to pamper.

Birds also serves complimentary Independence Brews or Rambler Sparkling Water to help guests relax and enjoy themselves as they get their hair cut. Both of these refreshments are Austin originals, and they reflect the local flavor that has made Birds so famous.

Celebrating Diversity With a People-First Attitude

Birds Barbershop is an upbeat salon with a growing client base that includes people of all orientations, skin colors, and backgrounds. You don’t have to fit in a certain mold to fit in here. The stylists are as eclectic as their customers, and they understand that your look is one of the most important expressions of who you are. They’re committed to getting it right and satisfying everyone who walks in the door.

This award-winning barbershop is locally famous for offering great deals — including discounts on Election Day if you show your I-voted sticker — and offering artistic haircuts and hairstyles that bring a smile to people’s faces.

Men, women, and children rely on Birds Barbershop to take care of their hair and give them an extra bit of color and confidence in the world.

You can transform your look by stopping by Birds Barbershop.

Whether you want a fade, an up-do, or a pixie cut, Birds has your back (and your hair). You’ll be in good hands at this barbershop, which has a 4-star rating on Yelp, and over 9,000 followers on Facebook.

“I love Birds Barbershop,” said Matthew W. in a five-star review. “Everyone at this establishment does a fantastic job at cutting hair and always sparks up a great conversation.”

“Points to Birds for being able to handle different hairstyles — curly, straight, and really, really straight,” said Jenny N., who went to the salon with two friends. “Fast, friendly, and good service. We were in and out within the hour.”

The Birds team is flexible to a lot of different needs, and they aim to make getting your haircut an empowering experience no matter what.

Marina M. has cancer and went to Birds Barbershop to get a close head shave in anticipation of her chemo treatment. “The wonderful way in which Birds treated me lifted my mood,” Marina said. “Most importantly, she made me feel like the proverbial million bucks throughout the whole process.”

Birds Barbershop is a Cut Above the Rest

Since my brother started dating his future wife 11 years ago, his hair has never been longer than a few inches. She makes sure he stays well-groomed and well-dressed, and he occasionally teases her about how she almost let her soul mate slip away because of a bad haircut.

I don’t think a haircut is the only thing that matters when building a relationship, but it is very important for crossing that first hurdle and making sure someone sees you well enough to want to get to know what’s beneath that gorgeous head of hair. That’s where the hair-care experts at Birds Barbershop come in.

Birds Barbershop has been an excellent wingman for Texas daters throughout the years, and it could give you that little confidence boost you need to win over your crush or impress your significant other.

We recommend stopping by Birds Barbershop before big dates and special occasions to make sure you’re putting your best foot (and best hair) forward at all times. After all, good grooming is an essential part of good dating!
