Old Soul Barbershop Makes Everyone Feel At Home
Looking for the best barbershop in SoCal? Shops are popping up all over the place, making it hard to choose, but Old Soul Traditional Barbershop in Riverside caught our attention. I have no doubt this will be your new favorite spot to get yourself lookin’ right!
Barbershops have made a huge comeback in recent years thanks to social media trends. In fact, the entire barber scene is currently one of the most popular niches on Instagram. These new shops are wildly popular, stylish and generate lots of Instagram-worthy content. They’ve even created influencers out of small town barbers!
Old Souls is one of the most down-to-earth barbershops you’ll find in SoCal. Located directly across the street from the Tyler Mall in Riverside, it’s small, humble and the boys do it for the simple love of the craft.
They may be covered in tats and piercings, but don’t let that intimidate you! These dudes are the friendliest, most welcoming people in the biz.
You’ll be greeted with a warm atmosphere and mellow vibes, with throwback hits playing over the speakers and the Netflix quietly streaming in the background. The ambience is a reminder of those days your mom would clean the house while blasting Smokey Robinson, Brenton Wood, and Sam Cooke.
Old Soul Barbershop opened in early 2019 and has been growing ever since. It’s not hard to see why. Old Soul is low-key, humble and has gathered a loyal following from people of all types in the Riverside community.
What makes Old Soul stand out is their attention to detail and their personable nature. Most trendy barbershops tend to make you feel intimidated or like you’re not cool enough to be there. Not these guys … they make everyone feel right at home.
Secure an Appointment!
They’re also not above walk-ins … something that’s generally frowned upon in many barbershops. They’ll be glad to take you in if they have some free time, but as always, those with appointments come first. However, since they are growing in popularity, the guys are almost always booked up every week, so be sure you make an appointment in advance.
Old Soul Barbershop is that chill neighborhood spot where you can relax and leave your worries behind, if only for a short time. The boys lend their ears if you need to vent after a long week and they’ll even pass you an ice cold Modelo while you sit!
Sometimes you won’t even want to leave the chair after your cut is done. The vibes are that good.
Old Soul is cash-only, but they conveniently have an ATM right in the shop. Haircuts are $25, Beard Trims/Shaves are $25 and the combo for both is $40. (Prices may fluctuate).
