    Barber Shops??

    So I'm going to need to get haircuts regularly while on campus this fall but I'm not from the area. Are there any reliable barber shops on/near campus? thanks.

    I went to All Cuts when I was in school. It was on Lincoln Way across from Friley.

    So when Troy took it over, is it still called "Monty's?" That is where I went for a hair cut. Hoiberg got his hair cut there and it should get all credit for coining the phrase "In Fred we trust."

    I know everyone will be shocked to learn that when Troy took over he re-named the establishment "Troy's".

    Re: Barber Shops??

    In 2003 I got a hair cut in this weird place upstairs on Lincoln Way. Guy was smoking marijuana when I walked in. Butchered my hair so I had to go somewhere else after class to redo it.

    I hope it's not the same guy you are all talking about.

    Re: Barber Shops??

    Troy's hours suck. Got a haircut from him once. It was pretty good. Walk-ins only though.

    If you need a line up, Joe the Barber is great. My friend goes to him and loves it. Most of the football/basketball team goes as well.

    If you're looking for "style" or whatever. There is "The Groom Room". Costs the same as great clips, and a couple more than Troy's but it's the best haircut place in Ames for guys. They call themselves a modern barbershop or something. Never had a bad haircut. I even went last August and said "do a haircut that would fit my style" and showed them pictures of me out. Loved the haircut.

    Troy is over by Mother's Pub. I'm assuming Monty was there too.

    This. It's in campus town so it's close by.

    Re: Barber Shops??

    I went to school and was in the Ames area for a decade or so. Only went to Monty's, now Troy's, and the Groom Room. As said above, the Groom Room is $20ish and they do a great job. Have to schedule an appointment. Troy's is walk in only and is $13, cash/check only. Now I only go to Troy's as I will just stop if in the area and don't need an appointment.

    I have seen black guys at both.
