Absolutely outstanding barber, in the old tradition. I got a great haircut and a fantastic shave. Highly recommended.

I must say that this was my first beard shaping and straight razor shaving experience in the GTA. My reference points are the babers of Istanbul, Turkey, where a high quality and quick haircut, beard trimming/shaping and straight razor shave runs you about $10 in total!! So it was already tough to accept the steep price of $55 for the same service but I guess that's the price downtown.... more

Hit and miss barbershop

It's a busy shop; they try to squeeze as many cuts as possible. 15-20 mins per customer is not enough to provide a great cut.

I've been there many times and it's definitely an inconsistent experience; sometime I get a great cut and sometime a terrible one.

Came on a Saturday and literally got kicked out since they were too busy. Won't ever try again.

I went there because of the good reviews. But my experience and haircut were absolutely horrible!

I've lived in this city for a long time, and seen a lot. The cut here is always great, and you'll look sharp. You however need to be specific in what it is that you want, otherwise you'll get that generic cut. I find their pace just right / I hate sitting in a chair for longer than it needs to be. I can't speak to the hot towel service to which some have commented in the below, but I see a many... more

Best Barber Shop in town.

I have been been to a fair number of them in Toronto. I am rather picky about my hair cut, but these guys get it right every time. Makes that $22 well worth it.

The shop has early/mid 1900s decor. Each of the 4 chairs are unique and have a history of where they came from. And here is the kicker, if you ask them, they will play Sinatra or a Dean Martin CD too. Which... more

Great service! they are fast and efficient. I'm usually out within 20 minutes at most with no complaints. They do charge a bit more than some other places but I don't mind the price. Love the decor as well. Feels like a real barber shop.

Come here for all my haircuts even though I don't live that close anymore. The service, environment and people are exceptional. They're pretty good at turning vague directions "short, but not too short" into good haircuts.

I come here for pretty much all of my haircuts. The service is exceptionally professional. They always have a tv on silent playing the news, and jazz is always playing over the air (the owner apparently is a huge jazz lover). The folks are very professional. I've always gotten a simple cut, and these guys have always been terrific.

That said, if you are looking for a cheap 10 dollar haircut... more

A reliable, classic old school barber shop. Cuts are quick, reasonably cheap ($22), and reliably good. It has a nice, warm, old fashioned feel inside. They even finish off your sideburns and neck with a straight razor. Probably not the place to go if you're looking for the latest trend but if you just want a good, basic cut check Terminal Barber out.

Not a good experience
January 27, 2011

The barber was talking on the phone in French all the time. He didn't follow my instructions. I am not sure if it's because he didn't understand me or if I wasn't clear enough. I went back home have shave everything off! What a waste of money.

I gave this place a try because of reviews I read and the fact that it's the oldest barber shop in the city. I walked in at 4:15pm on a weekday and was out before 5, and that's with all 4 chairs already busy with customers. I had to wait less than 10minutes, most of which I spent perusing some splendid magazines (mainly consisting of "Life") that actually were interesting to go through and were... more

Friendly, multilingual staff (I get to practise French); careful, precise haircuts; low prices. What else can you ask for?

Did you know that Woody Harrelson has received his haircut here? This is a cool spot for an haircut.

This is the oldest standing barber shop in Toronto! Since 1925, the "Boys Club on Bay Street" has been a downtown fixture at Bay/Dundas, offering haircuts, massages and hot lather shaves in a classic barber shop setting.

I didn't have time for a wet shave, but I'd try that even despite Paul... more

I went to the Terminal Barber shop sometime ago for a straight razor shave. I have extremely sensitive skin and cut easily. I told the barber and he assured me it was no problem. It was a busy Saturday so I had to wait, which was fine, except that, unlike Trufitt and Hill, they begin to rush when they are busy. Let me tell you, rush and straight razor shave are two things that should never,... more

In my books, the best barber shop in the city. Why? Great cuts, great shaves (thanks Mustafah!!), great old-world interior, antique wood and brass barber chairs, great music, no appointments needed, central location, friendly, hard-working staff, and cheap!!! Did I mention cheap? If you're a fan of Truefitt & Hill (which charges $38 for a haircut), get this: 17 bucks for the same cut at the... more

This is where _Mickey Knox_ gets his hair cut. These guys don't mess around.

I've been a patron of this shop at Bay and Dundas for nearly twenty years, and outlived two of my barbers! First Italian, then Romanian, my new barber is a friendly young Algerian chap named Omar. I highly recommend the shop in general, and Omar in particular. Haircuts are $17 and they also do full shaves. Best of all, their barber chairs are antiques, nearly 100 years old.
