I have been coming to Mr. Campbell since February 1972. Yes, over 40 years coming to the same shop and the same Barber. When Mr. Campbell retires I will just have to shave my head.

Victor! He is your guy. If you are a guy that cares about getting a great haircut, then he is the man for the job. One of the smartest guys I have got my hair cut from. We talked about international culture, politics, food, and some other things. Great conversations, Great hair cut. Great service. I drive 70+ miles from Norfolk, VA to get my haircut here every chance that I get.

Oh, how I love this place. It struck me as old-school RVA. I got a routine haircut, and was wowed by the experience. $18 for full lather, half-hour cut, scalp massage, more of a haircut than I've ever had. This is coming from a guy who previously was reluctant to let anyone who wasn't a gay male cut his hair. (Miss) Linda did an excellent job, and I highly recommend her.

If you want a great hair cut that's consistently great every time you go, then definitely start coming here.

Victor has been cutting my hair since they re-opened and he does an incredible job! He's also a really funny guy to talk to.

I was so tired of going to your $13-$15/hair cut place and having to monitor my barber/hair cutter just to make sure I received a semi-OK haircut. Every time I went to one of those places, I could never get a consistent hair cut.

For $18 at John Marshall, I can sit back and relax while Victor works his "masterpiece". They have TVs there but for some reason, I'm more entertained by people watching the people walking the sidewalks.

I will never go to another cheap hair cut place again.

EXPERIENCE:
The John Marshall Barber Shop is probably as good as it gets for those interested in quality service, classic cuts, and a fair price.  The shop itself is located on the ground floor of the newly renovated John Marshall Hotel and can be accessed from the street.

Your typical haircut will run $18; which can ad up, but unlike bargain "hair salons" it includes a hot lather, straight razor neck shave, eucalyptus face towel, and-above all-a consistent haircut.  They also have the built in wall vacuum units and a shoeshine...so there's that too.

The John Marshall is frequented by politicians and city leaders of all sorts, so I wouldn't go in asking for a Chelsea cut; however, they are more than capable of executing a more modern "GQ" hairstyle and definitely anything from the 50's.

PROS:
- Service, these people love what they do
- Quality
- Charm/Atmosphere
- Street parking usually available right in front of the entrance (have change)

CONS:
- They're typically open 8AM-4PM, a pain for out-of-towners and those with strict work hours.

BOTTOMLINE: Classic haircuts in a historic landmark by legendary Richmond barbers.

OTHER DETAILS:
- They accept walk-ins, but your best bet is setting up an appointment.  You can usually get in the day you call if you're flexible.
