Here's what Bianca G. had to say:
“I'm not sure why it's taken so long for me to write a review for this place, but here it goes. Being a female with short hair, I wanted to get a cut that was crisp, clean, and flyyyyyyyyyyyyy. I looked to yelp for help and this place popped up. Now for me, it is sometimes really intimidating going to a barbershop. I never know what to expect or what the atmosphere at the moment will be. As soon as I walked into Charles Blades all of my uneasiness subsided. I was greeted immediately by Charles and I told him what I wanted. Next to him was Nasir who was even more friendly and he was able to take me right away. I showed him a picture of what I wanted and he asked a couple of questions to clarify. The result was a haircut that I repeatedly received compliments on. I continued to go to Charles Blades Barber Spa with each experience being better than the last. Finally, I brought my 5 year old son for a haircut. Nasir has been nothing less than awesome even when my little guy had a VERY specific idea in mind about how he wanted a design/part in his hair that only HE understood. Nasir took the time to talk to him and really made my little one feel like he was part of the process. My son LOVED his haircut and for days after, checked himself out in the mirror to make sure the design was still there. Charles Blades has a cozy location, books for the kiddos, tables out front when the weather is nice and easy conversation. The bottom line is this place is THE BEST! Great barbers, friendly clientele, comfortable environment and most important you always leave feeling and looking better than when you walked in!”
