Tip Top Barber Shop is a highly ranked barbershop that caters to men and children and offers a wide variety of cuts from a traditional men’s cut to an elegant Caesar style, to the down to the skin Zero Fade. Its barbers are also qualified to work with a wide range of hair textures. The company offers classic barbershop luxury such as hot towel treatments as well. 

In addition to its hair cuts, Tip Top Barber Shop offers hot shaves, beard trims and line ups, hair designs, facial waxes, and hair colors or perms. This large menu of hair services establishes the company as a full service barbershop and sets it apart from competitors that don’t offer chemical services or facial waxing. 

Tip Top Barber Shop is located in the multicultural community of Calgary; the heart of Calgary Northeast. It works hard to create a comfortable environment that feels like you’re meeting an old friend. It also works to make its barbershop inclusive by cutting and styling a wide variety of hair textures, and offering special rates for seniors and kids. 

Tip Top Barber Shop conveniently carries a good selection of high-quality, imported hair products for men, including the following: 

  • Suavecito
  • Layrite
  • Elegance
  • Reuzel

Tip Top Barber Shop has won several awards for years running. It won Star Metro Calgary’s Community Choice Awards for years 2017–2019. It also won the Top Choice Awards in 2017 and 2018.


The Good

  • Online Scheduling
  • Mid-Range Pricing
  • Great Reviews
  • Complimentary Neck Shave

Online Scheduling

Tip Top Barber Shop offers its customer the convenience of online scheduling for booking appointments. The online booking system is easy to understand and works well. You can also view the full price menu in this booking system. 

Mid-Range Pricing

Its prices for services are in the middle for men's haircuts and shaves. It is a nicer barbershop and offers a wide array of different services so its prices reflect this higher quality. Similar barbershops in the same general area of Calgary charge slightly more per service. When you get a shave, cut, dye, or wax at Tip Top Barber Shop, you can be assured that you’re getting a good value.

Great Reviews

Tip Top Barber Shop has great online reviews. It has a large number and a high star rating in comparison even to its top competitors. Customers who have left reviews appreciated the kind and friendly barbers that work there and the skills and craftsmanship they possess. Many reviews mentioned the excellent fades they received there. They also say that it is clean and very well maintained. 

Complimentary Neck Shave

All men’s haircuts come with a complimentary straight razor neck shave. Some competitors, but not all, offer a complimentary neck shave so this really is a nice, high-end touch for its customers.


The Bad

  • No Information on Barbers
  • Inconsistent Experiences with Barbers

No Information on Barbers

Most salons and some barber shops will provide biography information, or at least a staff list, of their barbers. It is inconvenient that Tip Top Barber Shop doesn’t provide any information about its barbers. You will be unable to find out their qualifications, how long they have cut hair or provided shaves and other services, and any other background information. 

Inconsistent Experiences with Barbers

While most of the company’s reviews are positive, Tip Top Barber Shop customers have left some negative reviews. Most of these negative reviews are related to inconsistent quality and experiences with haircuts from different barbers. A few mentioned sloppy work or uneven cuts that needed to be fixed.


The Bottom Line

Tip Top Barber Shop has a great list of services for men, seniors, and kids seeking traditional or a more advanced style. We like that it offers more than just the standard cut and shave service menu. In addition to great cuts and shaves, Tip Top Barber Shop barbers can provide chemical services, facial waxing, hair tattoos, and more. You will even get a complimentary neck shave with any haircut. 

We were impressed with Tip Top Barber Shop’s overwhelmingly positive online reviews. While it does have great reviews, you may find it inconvenient that the company doesn’t list any information about its barbers or staff on its website. In order to find out this information before booking a service, you will have to contact its phone line directly.
