If you’re looking shaggy around the ears, or if you rue the day you let your significant other grab the scissors, spring is the perfect time to get back in the barber’s chair. These local barbershops make the cut when you’re ready to update your look.
With four chairs tucked inside Half-Moon Outfitters, Circa exudes a “less is more” aesthetic. The minimal shop is all white, sleekly modern, and specializes in looks from classic to edgy. Between the five locations in South Carolina, you’ll get consistent service, no matter where you go. The local Circa is run by brothers Jeffrey and Joseph Neely, who offer the brand’s extensive line of products that are vegan, paraben-free, and full of essential oils.

This intimate shop with just two chairs is barely a year old, but it nonetheless attracts a diverse, multicultural cross-section of Greenville guys who stop in for skin and shadow fades, hot-towel shaves, and beard enhancements.
