Men Don’t Belong In A Beauty Salon

or a 5-Minute Quick-Clip!

Men Belong In A Real Barber Shop!

Do you remember the old-time barbershop your dad took you to when you were a kid?  By now most of them have vanished.

Many barbershops disappeared in the 80′s and 90′s, replaced by salons that continued to cater mainly to women.  The pendulum has swung back and barber shops are making a comeback.

When it comes to getting a haircut today, there are few options.  You can try the franchise cutters where it seems like most of the cutters are still in training, or maybe your wife will set you up with her hair stylist where you will enjoy the smell of nasty chemicals, while listening in on the latest salon gossip.

We think you deserve better:  a classic barber shop just like the one your dad took you to as a kid — a place where fathers will feel comfortable bringing their sons.

Perhaps it’s the combination of the scent of hair tonics, plus the all-man atmosphere. But more so, it’s the tradition of barbershops as a place of continuity–they don’t change with the shifts in culture.  The shops and barbers look the same as they did when your dad got his hair cut.

It’s a straightforward experience with none of the feminization of salons.  There are no waxings, facials, highlights or unpleasant smells of a perm.  ‘Just great haircuts, shaves and great conversation!”

When you walk out of our barber shop with a stylish haircut,  you can’t help but feel a bit of manly swagger creep back into your step. 

So the next time you spot our familiar red, white and blue striped pole — please stop in.    You will be glad you did!

Here is what My Customers are Saying

Rich is the consummate barber. He offers service that has been lost in today’s busy world. No 10 minutes and out with Rich — he gets to know you, the cut you are looking for and offers great advice on how to get there. Rich goes out of his way to give you his all. Great service, great cut, great conversation all at a great price.

Bill G.

A great feel and an even greater cut. Rich was kind and I came away with an assurance that this guy know men’s hair. I almost don’t want to give it good reviews because a good barber with a better price is a secret not to be given away lightly. But they deserve it.

Andrew Wade

Rich does a great job. He doesn’t rush the haircut and will take the time to get it right, while asking you if you want it shorter/different at each phase of the cut. A true gentleman’s barber.

Robert Sung

Had my first haircut from Rich today.  What a pleasant experience.  I’ll be a repeat customer.  Great “old fashioned service.”

Karl Hofmann

I live out of state, and came to Salt Lake on business but in need of a haircut.  Upon recommendation, I went to Rich Kletting where I received the absolute best haircut I have ever had.   He is skilled at matching face shape and hair shape.  My hair was the perfect length in all the right places!  When I am back to Salt Lake, I will return to get my hair looking perfect again.

Carter Knapp

Rich is hands down the best barber experience you can get. I wish I could give a six-star rating. Quality service at its best and will be a customer for life.

Percy S.

I grew up in California so I have seen a lot of expensive barbers who don’t deliver.  As of right now there are only two people who I will let cut my hair.  One is my sister in California who is a cosmetologist, and the other is Rich Kletting.  Both work exceptionally hard and pay close attention to detail.

Joseph B.

Great place!  I have been to several of the other barbers downtown and have left very unhappy. I went to this shop and could not be happier with the entire experience. My barber Rich was very friendly and he listened closely to what I wanted. I would recommend Rich to any man who wants a great professional haircut.  I will absolutely be a regular at this place.

Robbie T.

For a guy who’s used to paying rock bottom for a haircut, the proposition of a sixteen dollar haircut was daunting. However, I must say that Rich is personable and meticulous. He spent a solid forty-five minutes on me, and I walked out of there with a haircut which, for the first time in my life, I was actually proud of.

Bob Kaufmann

Rich is an amazing barber. His customer service is beyond anything I have ever had. Rich has been cutting my hair for about a year now, and I will continue to go to him for as long as I can. Let’s just say, I live in NV and I drive to SLC to get a haircut from Rich. That’s how good he is. He keeps an old school barber shop feeling and technique in a new school world. From a clean shave or beard trim to a simple hair trim, Rich will meet every specific need that you ask of. I highly recommend him whenever someone asks me where I got my haircut.

Chanse Dahl

Rich was fabulous. I had a great experience–I felt like I was at a traditional barbershop that you don’t see much anymore these days. The price I paid was very comparable to what I would have paid at a chain store, and extremely reasonable considering the level of service I got. I felt like Rich genuinely enjoys cutting hair and that shows in the quality of his work.

John Pilkinton

I have never had a barber work harder to get me looking my best.  Rich is very professional and extremely friendly. I appreciate the old style traditional barber skills that he commands.  He looks like a real barber and he performs like a real barber. I always get great service and I always feel so welcome at the shop.  The best service I have ever had.   I would never consider going anywhere else!

Jim McGowan

Rich was a great guy who gave a great cut! Very professional in the bow tie! Great touch. Old school barbers are the best! I like that I can schedule an appointment online the night before and go on my lunch. Got a little message afterwards as well. Price was decent too. I will be back.

By Appointment for Your Convenience–—No Walk-In’s

How many Barber Years has it been?

As early as 6,000 years ago, barbering services were performed by EGYPTIAN NOBILITY using crude instruments from sharpened flint or oyster shells.

Barbers of the middle ages practiced shaving, hair-cutting, dressed wounds and performed surgical operations. They were called BARBER-SURGEONS.

George Washington was BLED TO DEATH by his physician in 1799. He suffered from a prolonged windpipe infection. He died calmly counting his pulse at the age of 67.

It was not until 1893 when A.B. Moler opened the FIRST BARBER SCHOOL in Chicago. He also published BARBER TEXTBOOKS at that time.

Why Do You ONLY Make Appointments Online?

In today’s modern world, most men prefer to use technology to make appointments which fits their busy schedule.  Appointments can be made anytime 24 hours each day, seven days each week.

It also means I do not have to take phone calls during your service to make appointments—which wastes your precious time.

My clients are extremely enthusiastic about the convenience of online scheduling. The system couldn’t possibly be easier to use.

When Are You Open?

I am in the shop Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 6:00pm

Saturday 9:00am to 3:00pm

(see Online Scheduling for current details)

Why Do You Spend 30 Minutes On A Haircut?

Many salons and shops run people through in 10 to 15 minutes.

This doesn’t fit with my philosophy of giving each client my very best effort!

30 Minutes allows attention to detail and full services such as hot-lather shave around neck and ears, vacuuming hair as well as the neck & shoulder massage.

I want you to look great and feel great when you leave!

What Is Your Famous Hot-lather Neck Shave?

The old-style traditional barbers used to finish a haircut with hot lather around the neck and ears.

Then using a straight-razor the side burns, around ears and the neckline are cleaned up so you look crisp and clean.

It not only FEELS great….but you will LOOK great as well.

Do You Still Offer A Neck & Shoulder Massage?

The neck and shoulder massage comes right after the hot-lather neck shave and vacuuming loose hair.   It is a great way to finish a great haircut experience.





Real men can tell the difference between a beauty salon or a 5-minute quick-clip when compared to a real traditional barber shop.  It is hard to find a real barber who is trained, licensed and experienced in performing all classic barber services such as the classical hot-towel straight-razor face shave.    Now your search for a traditional barber is over.

The great Ohio State football Coach Woody Hayes once said, “You might out coach me—but you will never out work me!”  That is the attitude that I have as a barber.  I will never approach a haircut or shave where I don’t work as hard as I can to make your experience the best possible.  On any given day someone might out cut me—but they will never out work me!

Cutting hair is one thing.  Creating a complete haircut experience is something else.  That is one reason that I cut on a 30 minute cycle—I want to have the time to make it a great barber shop experience for each client.  I want you to be able to say when you leave the shop that you both LOOK GREAT and FEEL GREAT!

  • Attention to Detail 98.7%
  • Only An Average Haircut 10.7%
  • We care how you look 100.00%




I would like to invite you to come and see me.

You will Look Great and Feel Great when you leave—–or your haircut is on me!
