Best Barbershop: Millheads

The people have spoken.

Millheads is what happens when four hairstylists with nearly four decades of cumulative experience pool their resources and start their own barbershop. Opened on January 5, Millheads became a fast favorite among Seattleites looking to get their ears lowered. As a matter of fact, they have been getting so much business that they are hiring a fifth hairstylist to handle the increasing flow of customers. With dark colors and mounted game trophies that harken back to the barbershops of yesteryear, the aesthetic of Millheads is so inviting you won’t mind waiting your turn for a quality haircut. The shop also includes a bar where patrons can chill and enjoy a local beer while they wait. 83 Yesler Way, 682-7079

Second runner-up: Bang

Honorable mention: Squire Barbershop, Bishop’s Barbershop
