Man At His Best Starts Here



There’s something about old-school barbershops being a place for gentlemen that is both stylish and timeless – which is precisely where our inspiration stems from here at 18|8 of Barrington. We’ve taken the idea of the classic barbershop and gave it an upgrade, bringing it up to speed with the style of today. With our wide selection of professional salon services, from our signature executive haircuts & straight razor shaves to refreshing nail & skin treatments, we make it easy for you to always look your best. Not to mention our professional barbers and stylists who specialize in men’s styling will make sure that you have the look of a true, modern gentleman.


Women have their own salons where they can go to relax and escape their busy days, so why shouldn’t men have their own place to do the same? When you walk into 18|8 you get more than just a haircut or shave, you get a complete salon experience designed just for men. As you wait for your appointment, we serve cold, refreshing drinks to help you relax and make the worries of your day just fade away. Once you get seated at your own semi-private station with one our professional stylists or barbers, you can sit back, relax, and let them do what they do best. To take the whole experience to another level, complimentary massages and hot towel finishes help you completely relax, and leave you feeling like a new man.
