The Ten Best Beard Trims in Denver


A photo posted by @keepdenverbeard on


Life in Denver is getting hairier by the minute. There are beard-oil companies popping up left and right, and the I Heart Denver store even unveiled a Keep Denver Beard shirt just in time for Opening Day. But keeping those beards in order isn't easy, which is why shops that specialize in beard trims are a growing business in Denver. Here are our ten favorite places to get a beard trim in Denver, ending with our top choice in the Best of Denver 2016.


10. Piper’s Parlor
2638 West 32nd Avenue
303-720-8016

Piper’s Parlour is one of Highland's hidden treasures. A small barbershop with just three chairs, it caters to both men and boys, offering “tried-and-true barbering ways in modern days.” Piper’s will hook you up with a beard trim for only $5.


9. GQ Barber Lounge
1605 17th Street
303-991-1010
GQ Barber Lounge is a one-stop shop: A guy can book either a Traditional Shave or a Royal Shave (depending on how irritated his skin gets after shaving), continue the pampering session with a facial, get a hand treatment so that he'll always have a firm (while still soft), handshake, and then finish the day off with a massage. Hell, he can keep the beard long and wax everything else, because the GQ Barber Lounge does that, too;  check out the services at gqbarberlounge.com

8. Kurt’s Cuts
1459 Ogden Street
720-989-1594

Kurt Luetjen has been providing old-fashioned barber services in Capitol Hill for more than twenty years. With only one barber chair in this Victorian-style building, he takes clients on a first-come, first-serve basis. Luetjen prides himself on offering high-quality services at affordable prices, and each service comes with a neck and shoulder massage. Text 720-989-1594 for availability; bookings are made within thirty minutes, on the hour and half hour.

7. Junior’s Old School Barbershop
8000 East Quincy Avenue, Suite 550
303-396-0508

It can be hairy living in the Denver Tech Center — and Junior's is there to help, offering traditional barber services, including straight-razor shaves, hot towels and even shoeshines. The beard trim is $7 and a true, old-school tradition.
6. Al’s Barber Shop
1425 Larimer Street
303-534-1483

Double date, anyone? Al’s Barber Shop shows the ladies love, too, offering women’s haircuts starting at just $45. But a man on the go can run in to Al’s and get a beard and mustache trim for $10; for an additional $5, he can get a neck cleanup, too. That should make any date go a lot more smoothly.
