The Barber Pole cuts the fluff by offering local men traditional barber services in a quintessential barbershop atmosphere. Much like its bitter enemy, baldness, the shop is hereditary, passing through the owning family for three generations. Its men's cuts ($18) craft a combination technique of clippers and scissors-over-comb, approaching cowlicks and mane planes with equal dexterity. The site blabs its tuft-tamers' hours online, making it easy for regulars and unoccupied paparazzi to know when they are on duty.

A row of barber chairs swivel atop a black-and-white checkerboard floor, reflected by the wall-length mirror. The old-fashioned vibe is heightened by services such as straight-razor shaves and shoe shines, but it's the hair-harvesting that landed the shop as a 2010 nominee for Best Barber on WDIV Detroit. The shop recently celebrated its 60th anniversary, and after a last-minute cancellation from the garbage-man trio, the shop settled on a barbershop quartet to sing their praises.


The Oakland Press profiled The Barber Pole for its history in Birmingham. Six Google Mappers give The Barber Pole an average of 4.33 stars, and two Yelpers give it four stars.

  • Skip the salon, this place is much better. Reasonably priced and your hair looks good. I switched to them about a year ago and haven't looked back since. – Christian, Google Maps
  • I love this place. Greatest straight razor shav in Michigan. – A Google Maps reviewer on 5/8/10
