Blade Craft Barber Academy



It’s usually $5 and a dice roll when it comes to getting a good cut at a hair school. Deep Ellum’s Blade Craft Barber Academy, however, is on another level. Located just a couple doors down from High & Tight (a proximity that has led to more than a few mix-ups), the school is suffused with easygoing masculinity: reclaimed-wood accents, concrete countertops, and Ray LaMontagne-ish tunes. Students always work under the supervision of a master instructor, and all have logged at least 300 hours of schooling, which include the art of the traditional hot towel shave (the detailed treatment takes at least 40 minutes). Reserve a private suite at no additional cost, and you can de-hair your entire face (they do ear- and nose-hair waxes, too) while sitting on a conference call. Cuts, shaves, and beard trims, $30. Appointments by phone or email; walk-ins welcome.
