If you're looking for a hip classic hairdo, Osami's Barber Shop should be your number one choice, especially if you're an Asian guy. I've been going to Osami's for over a dozen years. Even when I lived in Los Angeles and New York, I would visit Osami's in Seattle to have my hair cut.
Osami's is first-come, first-served. Years ago, I would wait for at least two hours to get my hair cut. Nowadays, with most of Osami's original clientele passing away, there is usually a chair available immediately. If you have to wait, finger through the Japanese Manga, the daily paper, or a wide array of popular magazines.
Osami's is not just my favorite barbershop, it's one of my fav hang-outs. It's a once-a-month treat, plus around new year's, Mr. and Mrs. Osami give you a super cool retro mini desk calendar.
Oh, for the budget conscious, haircuts are only 11 bucks. Tip them well.
