Received two haircuts from Charles' crew and they always give me better than I expect (based on other stylists and salons). Will continue to return.
Relaxing and comfortable space. Easy conversation. Had the pleasure of meeting Charles, great balance of personable and professional. He really took care of me. My hair looks great. Overall a great experience. Give 'em a try.

Great experience at Charles Blades for myself as well as my two young boys! Drewski was our barber and catered to our needs and gave us first rate haircuts!
I love going to Charles Blades' for both the haircut and the vibes. The place has such a cool ambiance, something lost in most businesses today and that plus consistently excellent haircuts keep me coming back. Charles is such a great guy …
A couple of months ago I was in Oakland for a weekend and needed a haircut. I found Charles Blades Barber Spa and booked an appointment with Bella. Best haircut of my life! So good that I drove back this weekend and I live in Sacramento.
This place is the best barbershop I've been to around the world.
Recently took my 9 year-old son to get a cut with Chris. So wishing I'd found this lovely barber shop when I first moved to Oakland! Good location, fun and relaxing vibe and decor. Charles greeted us kindly when we first walked in and Chris…

Chris was friendly and knowledgeable and understood about needing a cute but very low maintenance cut for this queer GNC Chinese organizer.
It was great! Awesome cut, great conversation, will definitely be going back!!
I have gotten the best cuts and shaves of my life at Charles Blades’ Barber Spa. If you’re looking for a sophisticated (but unpretentious) and fun place to get pampered in the Bay Area, this is it!
Comfortable, welcoming, experienced – nice spot, glad to have found it!

Great place with a trendy vibe. All the guys in there are really chilled.
Always a friendly face, greeting, conversation or good beer! Making an appointment is the best way to get in because there is always a head looking to get chopped. There's also great artwork in the bathroom! What more could you ask?

I like getting my hair cut here – my boy Tone does a bang up job and he tells a tall tale while he does it.
Best experience ever. Came in for a haircut, goatee trim and shave the morning of my wedding. Can't praise them enough. Nasir did an amazing job. Left feeling relaxed and spruced up for the big day.

Julie Nichols was entirely professional and I love the haircut that she gave me. She truly understands the art of customer service. I was so satisfied with her work that I gave her an $8.00 tip for a $35.00 haircut. I informed her that …
