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.

The South Austin Shop

"We are a small, local barber shop that is new to the community. My hope and goal is that every client walks out of my shop with a well crafted haircut and a great experience in an old-fashioned barber shop. We are a team of 5 at the moment and are trying to keep our wait times to a minimum."
