Skinny's Barber Shop is different than the chain of so-called "barber shops" that seem to be all over Austin. We are an old school barber shop using traditional methods to give our clients the highest quality cuts. Skinny's is the home of the Hand Crafted Haircut. We take pride and dedicate our time to giving the best haircuts in town. Our goal is that you leave with a good experience every visit. Appointments are available for a fee but walk-ins are always welcome. So give us a shot and stick around if you'd like.
