Best Local Barbershop

The Beardsmith

In 2015, British newspaper The Daily Telegraph asked, "Is this the world's best barbers?" referring to Schorem, Haarsnijder en Barbier, a men's barbershop in Rotterdam, Holland, that draws customers from around the world. The answer is, "Probably." You don't have to leave Boise to get your beard groomed or your locks lopped, though: The Beardsmith boasts Idaho's first and only Schorem-trained barber, a huge array of products and a reputation for precision.

2nd Place: State Street Barber—Clean cuts, line ups and 13-step hot towel shaves are on order at State Street Barber, located in a mini-mall on West State Street. The prices are reasonable and the service is as impeccable as you'll look when you walk out the door.

3rd Place: Barbiere DeVino—If you want more than just an expert cut, trim or shave, Barbiere DeVino is the place for you. Located in the iconic Belgravia Building on Main Street, Barbiere DeVino models itself on the Old World barber shops of yore mingled with a rock 'n' roll sensibility. Sip a drink, get your shoes shined and enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience.
