Joe’s Barber Shop – Best in Town – Oct 6, 2007
|When I moved to Crystal Lake I was concerned that I would not be able to find a barber that was equal to the one I left in my home town. I was more concerned about finding someone that could cut my hair properly than I was about finding a Doctor or a Dentist. I tried several other shops before I found Joe’s and was not happy with the results. When I walked into Joe’s for the first time I was greeted with a big smile and a friendly hello from Jack, the owner. (He bought the place from Joe.) The shop was bright and clean and very nostalgic. All the barbers were dressed in crisp black slacks and black t-shirts and there was a constant, good natured banter going on between the barbers and the customers. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. I recieved a hair cut equal in quality to my home town barber’s and I breathed a sigh of relief. I had found what I had been seeking. On subsequent visits I was attended to by many of the barbers in the shop and in each case was extremely satisfied with the results. The entire team is highly skilled. I would encourage all who seek a quality hair cut in a friendly and inviting atmosphere to give Joe’s Barber Shop a try BEFORE going any where else. Joe’sis the best in town!
| THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!!… – Oct 10, 2008
|GREAT HAIRCUTS. STRAIGHT RAZOR NECK SHAVES. SHOULDER AND NECK MASSAGE. MOSTLY WOMEN BARBERS. LAURA IS A CLIPPER GODDESS. NEVER A BAD HAIRCUT. GREAT ATMOSPHERE. …
|When we first moved to Crystal Lake we discovered Joe’s was especially great for my busy schedule. All I had to do was walk in and wait a few short minutes for a barber to call my name. Now the greatest part of Joe’s is that each barber will remember you, and will give you a great haircut along with a great conversation. I can always guarantee that I can leave Joe’s in a better mood then when I came in. Now in college in Milwaukee my first stop after a semester or a quick break I always stop at Joe’s. I’ve been going to Joe’sfor almost a decade, and I’d sure like another.
More than just a great haircut
May 30, 2007
Lots of places will give you a good haircut. The difference between good and GREAT is the level of service you receive and the attitude of those providing the service. At Joe’s Barber Shop in Crystal Lake, you’ll get the best of both – a great haircut and the friendliest folks you’ve ever met. Joe’s is a n authentic shop with a small-town feel that will remind you of when going to the barber shop was a social event. When you walk through the door you’re greeted with a smile, and after a couple of visits, they’ll know your name as well! They have 7 chairs so you don’t need an appointment and you never have to wait long. It’s the way going to the barber shop used to be. You won’t be disappointed.
Joe’s Barber Shop is simply excellent.
|Joe’s is simply a great establishment. The owner Jack, takes great pride in greeting his patrons, his staff of familiar barbers do an excellent job, plus you can get a warm, clean shave on the neck and a short “rubdown” after your haircut. What more do you need for a haircut? The cut takes the stress of the day away in minutes. They are conveniently located in downtown Crystal Lake and have reasonable hours. Nothing but high marks for Joe’s.

I travel some distance to get my hair cut at Joe’s barber shop. It’s not just the hair cut, it’s being around good people, who make you feel good. As long as I can drive I’ll continue to make the trip. These are more than barbers, they are friends. Thanks to some great people
Joe’s Barber Shop – A Great Place! I’ve been going to Joe’s for almost 30 years. My sons’ first haircuts were there and they still go. It’s a friendly place to sit and relax for a little while and I always get a good haircut.
Have enjoyed going to Joe’s Barber Shop for years. They really live up to their motto of contemporary stylings in an old-fashioned atmosphere….Jack and his staff are always upbeat, friendly and work to get you in and out. Getting the cut you want along with a warm foam shave and massage with every cut makes the low price a real value. Looking forward to many more visits to Joes.
Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF): Joe’ s Barber Shop is the best barber shop I have ever had the pleasure to visit. Joe’s is truly a pillar to the community. I have spoken with many others both professionally and personally, who speak as highly as I do about Joe’s and the staff. As a Military Officer, and a Police Officer, I require many quality cuts – and they are not simply “buzz” cuts. Admittedly, I can be pretty vain and demand the best. I have had my share of terrible cuts elsewhere. Remember, when a barber makes a bad cut and it’s short – not much can be done! But when it’s short and done right, nothing better, especially when adding a fresh shave a straight edge to really clean it up neatly, and a quick but relaxing upper back massage to send you out feeling great, every time, at no extra cost. I’ve been going to Jack’s now since early 2000, that’s over ten years of consistently great cuts from many of the staff. The staff is genuinely friendly and the atmosphere is great. It is a real, classic, barber shop, with a very clean and warm feel where your whole family can be taken care of while relaxing and engaging with the staff and their quality clientele on community issues, events, because the place simply attracts great people. In short, it is a people place that provides a great service at a reasonable price. Furthermore, the staff and ownership care about our community and their customers’ needs.
Wouldn’t Ever Go Anywhere Else! by Dave G.
I have been going to Joe’s now for almost 10 years and I cannot fathom ever going anywhere else. I love it so much that I have recruited family, friends, and half of my company! Joe’s is more than just a barbershop. Sure, they give great haircuts at a great price, but its the feeling you get when you walk through the doors. I liken it to the TV series, “Cheers”, where “everyone knows your name”. It has a great old fashioned quality and feel. Jack and his staff are all great people and now friends. Give Joe’s a shot and I promise you will go there for life! See you there!
Just a great barber shop, staffed with top-notch friendly barbers. This unique establishment has become an icon for the Crystal Lake community. When you walk in regardless if its your first time or you’ve been going there for years, your immediately given a sincere greeting. In no time at all you realize this place is different. Everyone their interacts like one big family. You can’t help but be drawn into this alluring atmosphere. A place where you leave looking and feeling better than when you walked in.
