Original Barbershop was founded in October 2015 by Greg Sysoyev as a way of bringing back the classic barbershop to the historic Lower East Side and East Village.
With a vision of a neighborhood establishment where the customers who grew tired of a girl-friend’s hair salon or Mom’s stylist would have a chance to relax and be catered to while surrounded by an atmosphere of an old fashioned club. The patrons are invited to step back in time and enjoy an old-school hot-towel shave, gentlemen scissor-cuts with razor-shaved neck followed by a splash of ….. cologne while watching the big games and discussing current events. Our master barbers still believe in the timeless tradition of great customer service, like knowing their customers by name, remembering their preferences but most of all giving great haircuts and shaves.
In essence, making them feel like a new man.
Be Original, Become an Original
To make a fine gentleman, several trades are required, but chiefly a barber.
Great Barbershop even a greater
Cutter Greg. I’ve been a loyal customer for over a year now, “Consistency ” is the name of the game, Greg never deviates from giving you that great cut.
Been coming here for 2 years now. GREG is fantastic. The new guy, CHARLES, is fantastic too (huge upgrade from Greg‘s previous sidekick). This place is great and the people are even better.
They also have comedy nights on Friday. OBS is not a barbershop it is a community.
Like many reviewers, I’ve been a regular with Greg for some time – at least the last 18 months. Consistency, quality, and availability are all great. I noticed a bad review from Jason C further down, and that barber is no longer working with Greg – I asked him about him today. Greg is awesome and you won’t be disappointed with a cut from him.
