my only gripe . . . no salad bar – Nothing new to add. Eclectic atmosphere. Laid-back, interesting staff. Good magazines and music/radio station selection. If you want a great haircut, without a lot of attitude, in real old-timey barber chairs, this is the place.
Jim is a local superhero – Although I have nothing on the northcampusallstar, Mug & Brush puts fear into my keratin strands. They know their days are shortened. As the metal spheres shoot across my fat membranes producing my lame thoughts, I am glad to hear Jim's professional scissor clips. I will tell you a little known secret about M&B. Jim also offers a metaphysical haircut, at competitive prices! I think its time for me to get one of those!
If you are tired of careless hair-dummies, if you like great hair cuttage at a fair price, bring your behind to Mug and Brush.
The Mug n' Brush will Rock You Like a Hurricane..... – Getting my hair cut at the Mug n Brush is an existentially liberating experience. I often leave with a clear purpose, an enlightened understanding of who I am, what I am, and where I'm going in this life. Maybe it's the deft, smooth, and calculated precision of Jim's deconstructionist styling technique. It might be the cultural revolution within: the general feeling that in this small shop is the beginning of Brave New Hair, the vanguard of Revolution in Style.
I usually wander into the Mug n Brush aimlessly, clueless as to my "style", wondering where I fit in, just another pebble on the beach....After my blubbering, rambling diatribe explaining why The Mullet is the only style that makes any clear conceptual sense, Jim, the steadfast owner of M & B, nods quietly, recognizing and understanding the Moral Dilemna that has crossed his threshold so many times before......He carefully weaves in and out of the icy territorial waters that plague a metrosexual man's hair identity crisis. I plop down in the comfortable Chair of Transformation and, like a good bartender with a stiff drink, the Captain of the Coif listens to my sad and sordid tale......
After a few minutes of banter, Jim literally cuts to the chase, having sized up my type, my character, my condition. With careful reassurances, he quietly goes about his craft, turning this cave-dweller into a Modern Man. With thoughtful and polite conversation, I'm lulled into complacency as The Master decides my Fate. In what seems like five minutes, the chair whips around as I face myself in the mirror. With heavenly-type harpsichord music as my soundtrack, I realize again that the Mug n Brush ROCKS. It's a place where, with only a small amount of direction, I can let someone with superior strength, knowledge, skill and understanding create a piece of art just for me. Some call it a hair cut; I call it a life-changing experience. With only a small dent in my wallet, I'm on my way again, Rockin' In The Free World..
Best Barber Shop in the Known Universe – I've been getting my hair cut with Jim at the Mug N Brush for two years now. I used to absolutely hate hair cuts, but Jim's cut my hair perfect every time and I no longer have to worry about getting a bad cut. In addtion to great hair cuts, Mug N Brush has low prices and a great atmosphere. Jim's done an amazing job remodeling the shop and hiring high caliber employees. You can't go wrong with the Mug N Brush. It truly is the best barber shop in the known universe (or at the very least the best in Columbus).
Phenominal customer service – Jim has been cutting my hair since I moved to Columbus over 5 years ago. I told him how to cut it the very first time and i have not had to tell him since. He consistantly does a great job and that is the most important thing for me. He is very flexible with his schedule and always seems to find time to squeeze customers in. I live and work on opposite sides of town and continue to make the commute because of his premium customer service. Lastly, you can't beat the price!
Great place for a cut! – I have been a customer for years. Never been unhappy. Great atmoshphere. Good conversation. This ain't no beauty parlor. A down to earth barber shop.
I actually look forward to getting a hair cut.
Best haircut ever – Long history of haircuts from Jim. Takes his time and does a very good job. I couldn't exist without one of his infamous haircuts. He is working very hard to get the shop the way he wants it to be now that he owns it. The best thing he has done was to buy the shop. It is becoming a neat shop to go to with a casual and fun atmosphere. A very good value for the money.
Favorite barbershop – Been going there for many years. Always a good haircut, quick, friendly old-time barbershop.
No frills, no fancy bs, no hard sell. Go there, you will be pleased.
Best scissor cut in the city! – After having followed my barber Jim from each salon shop he has worked at for over ten yrs. I was so happy when he decided to once again to own his own shop. A shop where Jim's energy. personality and care of customer service could go unchallenged by those others who quite frankly just don't give a dam.
Jim is a Master Barber who is passionate about what he does and a wise sage who can have a meaningful conversation with the U.P.S. man to the Dalai Lama as they sit in his chair.
Enjoy your time at his shop, Bryan McCarty.
Always a Great Cut – I've been going to Jim for about 5 years now, and I am always happy with my haircut. Whenever I'm not sure what I want, he comes up with ideas that always work. The prices are great too. But it's Jim's warm and friendly personality that keeps me coming back.
