    I went to Southern Gentleman’s because I was tired of getting my hair cut at the in-and-out quick haircut places. The shop came highly recommended by friends and they did not disappoint. I went in without having much idea of what I actually wanted and Zayne did an awesome job of giving me a cut that fit me perfectly. He took the time to clean me up and style my hair, even taking the time to explain different products and how they’d look. He never once pushed any product on me but I was so impressed with the cut and service that I bought the same product he used on the spot. Awesome barber shop and I will be going back!

    Very good haircut and great conversation from the barber's at SGB. Great cut great shave hot towel before and after with a menthol face rub down after to help close the pores. 2 complimentary drinks while you wait. Highly recommend. I don't remember my barber's name but he is in the back on the left as you walk in the door. He is very skilled. He has a beard himself so he knows what it takes to keep it up.

    Hands down the best place for a haircut. Book Justin for an appointment if you can. You can even watch what Niki's doing on her computer if you need entertainment.

    I love this barbershop. The atmosphere is great from the greeting, not waiting long to be called up, to the finish. Every staff member is great and makes you feel at home. I get my hair abd bears done with zayne. Great guy. Explains what he is doing as he does it. Great place to go if you dont then your FUBAR.

    This place is awesome. I've known Zayne for a few years, going back to his time at Paul Mitchell. I finally decided to check out his new gig, and I was super impressed. The barber shop has an old school vibe, but an updated feel to it. You've probably noticed that the prices are a tad high, but you get what you pay for. When I first walked in, I mentioned I had an appointment, and I was told he'd be right with me, but would I like a drink in the meantime. Haha who refuses a free drink. I actually got a delicious bourbon with a splash of ginger ale, and it was made to perfection. Now for the haircut, well what can I say, it was done perfect, and a lot of time and care was put into it. When you go to a discount chain, you're usually rushed in and out, sometimes you get a great cut, and other times you find yourself going home and doing some touch-ups. Afterward I receive a straight razor shave to the sideburns, neck, and to my hard part. I did notice some customers also got neck massages, and beard shaves, and trims. Overall I can't think of a bad thing about this place. I'll definitely be back, and I'll bring my friends.

    Best haircut I've ever had! Justin did an amazing job. I'll never go anywhere else.

  • *****

    I have been a customer here for several months. The customer service is as good as it gets! Niki always greets me by my name as I often stop in to make appointments, even though it may be months in between visits. She is an example of the superb customer service that all of the staff practice daily.

    I drive with my husband from Charleston to Columbia to get his hair cut. Enough said ?

  • *****

    Had a great experience. They used the scissors like Edward scissor hands and straight razor like Sweeney Todd. Increased my cool points and sex appeal. I wish my hair grew back faster.

  • *****

    Best haircut I've had in years. Seriously. I think it's worth the price and will be coming back for every haircut I ever need again. Crystal/Krystal (should've asked her which way she spelled her name) cut my hair exactly how I like it, and I didn't have to ask her more than once like some places I've been recently. She was quick and efficient, not rushed and half-assed like my last few haircuts. I will be recommending to everyone I know.

    Love this place....and I normally shop around for barbers that know what they are doing, and every cat in this place does.

  • *****

    I want to give Zane a huge thanks and high recommendation for his skills.

    I have been going to Southern Gentleman's Barbering Co. for a while now. The staff is great and the atmosphere perfect. Zayne has cut my hair every time so far and I have no plans of going elsewhere.

  • *****

    Great service, awesome barbers... they won Best in Columbia for a reason. Hard work and great haircuts

  • *****

    Some of the finest beard barbers and all around barbers I've found in Columbia yet! They do a stellar job every time no matter who's chair you sit in! Plus, the cold beer or mixed drink while you wait is an added bonus and it's all included in these guys extremely reasonable price!!

  • *****

    My husband has been looking for a barber with the attention to detail of a salon? Look no further. Everyone here takes great pride in the place and their work, too. Personal service combined with a killer atmosphere makes for a fantastic barber shop. People compliment him on it as well as ask him where he went. He will definitely be coming back!

  • *****

    This was a fantastic experience! I took the suggestion of a bartender I knew from the area when I moved to Columbia. He sports a nice gentlemanly beard as I do. So naturally I needed a place to get it shaped and maintained. I have been here a week and I won't go anywhere else to touch my beard.

  • *****

    Great Place! Great Vibe! Crystal the new addition to the owner Joes Team will be making a difference. She has been cutting my hair for over a year and I drove 40 mins just to get a haircut. Well worth the time and money. Best of Luck Crystal in your new Chapter in Life!

  • *****

    What a great experience, I've been looking for a place like this for a long while. Kyle is an artist and takes pride in what he does. Awesome!

  • *****

    The absolute best barbershop around. Excellent service and very friendly environment. Parking is crazy but worth the hassle.

  • *****

    This is the only place I will get a beard trip. They are always incredibly friendly and reliable for amazing service. I recommend southern barber for everyone that I know.

  • *****

    Only place I let touch this mop!!

  • *****

    Best barber shop Ever

  • *****

    Cool place. Great vibe. Free drinks. Good haircut. Only thing that's kind of annoying is you can't really walk in unless you're lucky. My work schedule is so erratic, it's hard for me to nail down a time I can get in.

  • *****

    Love this place. They do a great job no matter who is cutting your hair. Very good at military hair cuts.

  • *****

    Thanks to Yelp, we found the ONLY place we will be going for my husband, Joe. Daniel did an AWESOME job on his hair and beard! We live about an hour and half away in GA, but will be making the trip from now on! They offered us drinks. Made me comfortable next to Joe during his service. My husband really enjoyed the hot towel and the neck massage! I was a bit jealous! While we were there, a couple of toddlers were getting their haircuts. They looked so adorable after! They made them comfortable just like the adults! We would recommend to EVERYONE!

  • *****

    I just moved to the area and needed a good hair cut so I could go job hunting. I walked in and Joe immediately entered my information so I would be in their system, gave me a beer and then a great haircut. He not only cuts great hair but he gave me good advice on where to look for jobs. The shop had a great atmosphere and the entire experience was excellent. I will only be going here to get my hair cut.

  • *****

    I am never disappointed at Southern Gentleman's.
    I've been to Zane, Curtis, and Kyle (only because I'm bad at making appointments ahead of time and will take whoever is there) and have had great cuts and conversation.
    Definitely the place to go for a good cut in Cola.

  • *****

    Awesome place for a beard trim

  • *****

    Had to get a haircut for a job interview and to propose to my girlfriend. My coworkers recommend here. Zayne was awesome! Saw me as a walk-in and gave me a great cut. I've already had several people compliment me on it as well as ask me where I went. I will only be returning here and I highly recommend getting a haircut here.

  • *****

    I finally found a barber who cuts my hair the way it grows. Zayne is fantastic.

    Best haircut I've had in a while!

  • *****

    Great staff, service, and atmosphere

  • *****

    Finally found a spot to get my haircut! These guys are on point and Daniel did a fantastic job with me! They give you a few drinks during the process of getting your haircut. The atmosphere is really neat, old fashion barber shop feeling and man cave combined in one. Can't wait until I get my haircut again!

  • *****

    Just got finished having my hair cut by Curtis. His attention to detail was far beyond mine, he was fixing parts of my haircut I didn't even recognize or see a problem with. True perfectionist and may care about your haircut than even you do. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

  • *****

    By far the best place I have ever been to get a haircut!

  • *****

    Got my haircut here for the first time today. It was a wonderful experience. Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere and most importantly a great haircut.

  • *****

    Columbia has needed a place like this for some time and this place does not disappoint.

  • *****

    Great shop! The staff was awesome and very welcoming. Offered me a drink as soon as I walked in. This was my first time and will definitely be my go to in Columbia now. Danny cut my hair and did a great job! Would definitely recommend!!

  • *****

    Great place! I was a walk in on a Friday afternoon and was worked right in. Since I left the military no barber has ever finished my haircut with a trim with a straight razor.. It was great! Strongly recommend any one needing a haircut to check this place out.

  • *****

    Joe gave me an undercut today, it's perfectly symmetrical and looks great! He double checked that I was comfortable with how it was going to look and the length it would be, and even tried a couple different lengths for me!
    He does a phenomenal job on my husbands hair every single time, so I knew I could trust him with my hair too.
    Not to mention he's incredibly fun to talk to, and definitely makes great company!

    Edit: I have to throw in that since we saw joe last, we've sent plenty of people his way and they've loved him.
    I'm always impressed by him. He works with my cowlicks and makes my undercut look very even. My husband has some bumps on his head, that other barbers always seem to knick or make look worse than they are, and you can't even tell he has them when Joe does his hair.
    We will be loyal customers until our next PCS.

  • *****

    I can not say enough good things about this place. I am a huge fan of an old school barber where you can go, relax and get a quality haircut without breaking the bank. Joe is so knowledgeable and the man to see if you want to look your best. You get a drink while you wait/get a cut. The decor in the parlor is spot on, the products they use are second to none. Make sure if you are just in town, passing through or looking for a fantastic haircut you go here and give it a try. I promise you won't be disappointed!

    My husband and baby have their hair cut couple times. Definitely coming back. Great service and good doing ther job.

    Super friendly staff, got a great haircut, free drinks and a man cave to boot. Can't beat that.

  • *****

    Best haircut In Columbia. Been coming here since they opened and have come back every month for a haircut and beard trim. The free drink is an added bonus

    Came in for the first time today. Great service and great cut. They were kind and courteous. Greeted me and ask if I wanted a drink as I walked inside. Haircut also turned out great. I would definitely recommend this place.

  • *****

    My boyfriend and I went here to get his hair cut. Right away we were greeted and offered beverages while we waited. By beverages I mean beer and liquor. What a pleasant surprise. Complimentary alcoholic beverages! I had a Stella and my boyfriend had a Jameson on the rocks. Joe cut my boyfriend, Dan's, hair. Dan said joe made great conversation and actually took the time to explain what he was doing and why so Dan can keep his hair looking great all the time. They also have a "man cave" area with a big and couches. Cute shop, super friendly and welcoming staff, and again they have free drinks! I don't mind going with my boyfriend to get his hair cut now (:

    Alyssa is amazing, she did a great job on my husband's hair. He's Native American and his hair can be tricky, but she had zero issues. The staff was super nice and the shop is very comfortable and clean. I think I've created a monster, they pampered my husband so much I know this will be his regular stop now.

  • *****

    Maria does a great haircut and shave. I'm a regular client and free beer!!

  • *****

    Souther Gentleman's is an incredible establishment. A group of my friends went in for haircuts and shaves before a wedding, and they were absolutely accommodating in every imaginable way. Zane, Maria, and Derrick (my apologies if any are spelled incorrectly!) were so fun to talk to and hang out with, on top of being excellent barbers! This place will be my go-to if I am ever in the area again, I would recommend it to anyone who asks, and I hope that I can find other places like it! Thank y'all for helping us out!

  • *****

    Great customer service! I'm glad I found this place. Zayne hook it up and fixed my butchered hair. They have a great man cave and the environment is very chill. I highly recommend this place!
