I have had a hard time finding a good barber around Santa Monica, so I was not expecting much when I tried this place. On the weekends, there is only one guy working and Russian Television is on in the corner. But there was a decent line of people waiting on the big leather couches, so I decided to give it a try. Glad I did - got an excellent haircut. I have also been back during the week and there are a few more people working - also received good cuts from them too. It is not a high end hair salon, but definitely better than the hair cuttery for about the same price.
