Every barber here is so skilled and cool. Been going for years. Keeps getting better.
Have a beer or whisky while you wait!
I received a haircut from Bella, who has truly a beautiful name. She was personable, professional, and gave a solid fade. Jam up, indeed.
The barbers are really cool, the atmosphere is great, and they gave me one of the best cuts I've ever gotten.
Great experience, the best barber shop in town.
Tony and the guys at Charles Blades do a fantastic job at both cutting hair and making you feel welcome in their shop. Tony is great to talk to, and runs off a seemingly endless supply of enthusiasm for whatever the conversation is at the …
Very Kid friendly. My son loved his new haircut! Thank you Charles!
This is the spot to be in! All the barbers are top notch and they have great conversation. You will not be disappointed with your visit here. Bella is who cuts me but I see some good cuts coming from the other folk too!
Great haircut. Fast service and low prices.Very knowledgeable and flexible.

Charles operates one of the most high-class and comfortable barber experiences in the Bay Area.
Great atmosphere and good people, Charles is probably the most neighborly person I've ever met. The broad spectrum of people who come into the shop always makes the conversation interesting to participate in as well as just listen too. Very…
Always a great cut and cool vibe in the place! Love that the owner is a huge fan of all things comics and movies. Bonus: grab a beer while you wait!
Saw Tony. Solid and super thorough. Spoke with Charles Blades for a few since I took a hiatus from the shop. Always an upbeat vibe with appropriate context for all ages. A well assembled crew who manage to get it right. The first shop I …
i see tony and he gets my weird hair and does a great job. but the whole shop rocks! warm and friendly neighborhood vibe and feel!
Charles did a great job cleaning me up for my holiday travels. My unruly and neglected beard looks great and didn't scare the grand kids. I will be a repeat customer.
This is a nice clean shop in an up and coming area of Oakland. Charles is a friendly barber that knows his way around hair and beards. The team of Barbers he has surrounded himself with are top notch. It really is a great place to relax, …
Bella did an amazing job, it’s hard to find a barber shop I like when I move. The ambience is amazing, great conversation from Mr. Blades and the other barbers with the guests. I will absolutely keep coming here!
Excellent service in an incredibly fun atmosphere. Impeccable 1st class personal attention with expertise in their craft. Charles and Tony are excellent barbers and create a warm welcoming shop for you to take care of your hair and beard.
Professional and comfortable. My hair came out great as well as my goatee.
The people, the cuts, and the atmosphere is bar none the best you can get in the Bay. Charles and his crew are supremely talented and hospitable.
Great group of barbers here. Super friendly, always accommodating, and the skills on the clippers are oozing! Thanks for taking care of me every time I come in!
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…
As a self proclaimed Luddite I don't care for the online appointment making piece, however everything afterwards is great. The cut, the friendliness of the barbers and other customers, the tunes in the background and the always delightful …

Charles is an absolute gem. Sweetest guy ever and he gave my son a fantaastic cut. I would highly recommend him.

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!
I bring by 6 year old son to Tony at Charles Blades, and he always gives him the coolest cuts. The entire staff and even the customers engage with my kids while we are there, and the community feel of the place makes it really comfortable …
Very friendly service, timely as well! I'm usually able to get whatever appointment time I need. Good variety of barber options. Everyone's super communicative and team centered. Love this place.

Skilled team with wonderful positive vibe. I leave with a great cut and a big smile.
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?
Amazing staff and owner! Love the free beer!

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.
Been going here over a year now. Love the vibe and local feel of the place. They offer free beer while you wait. Nice to see a diverse staff too.
Love this place and the cuts. I have been a customer for years and plan on continuing to be one.
I'm so glad I found Charles Blades. It saved me after two long weeks of work away from work. I needed a fresh cut badly but absolutely would not settle for any ole thing. Blades is a great atmosphere that has a progressive, inviting vibe. …
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 …
