Welcome to The Barber Collective
Here all are welcome. Hair is gender-less and a form of self-expression. This is a space to gather, tell your story(ies), feel comfortable, and disconnect. TBC is about more than a haircut: it is about the craft and the ability to share it with everyone who walks through the door.
We can’t wait to see you in the new space. Lets get your head right.

5 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, But We’re OLD SOULS
How short/long you like your sides? How short/long you like the top? From there we can talk details:
Fade (gradient in length from top to bottom), Taper (a gradual blend at the sideburn and back of the neck), Neckline (Tapered, blocked, rounded) Texture (added after the top has been cut usually for volume or a messy look) Buzz Cut (same length all over using clippers).
In the barber game showing is better than telling. Bring Georgette a pic of what you’d like your hair to look like. Hair texture, density, and porosity varies from person to person.
Our personal favorite; you won’t be disappointed. The word Barber comes from the word “Barba”, meaning beard.
If your barber doesn’t do beards, are they really a barber? When you face the mirror, what shape do you like at the bottom of your beard? Do you like rounded, squared, or pointed? Do you like the sideburn blended into the beard? Maybe you want your beard disconnected from your sideburns. How clean do you like your cheek line? Do you like all of the outlying beard hair cleaned up or do you like a more natural looking cheek line?
After a beard trim, you’ll receive a beard balm, oil, and/or salve treatment to keep it looking and feeling fresh long after you leave the chair.
This is the ultimate “feel good” item on the menu. Lay back and let TBC bring your entire face back to life.
First is hot towel #1 soaked in essential oil to your face to open up the pores. We’ll apply a hot shaving lather to moisturize and clean your facial follicles. Hot towel #2. Hot lather kicks off the real fun. With a Feather brand straight razor, your hair will seem to melt off. Then hot towel #3 followed by a cooling shave gel. Stubborn areas will get extra attention. Hot towel #4.
We’ll use Willow Tea, witch hazel, or Bay Rum as a skin coolant/anti-inflammatory depending upon your skin sensitivity. A cold towel closes up the pores & relieves your skin. We apply a dab of cucumber oil to help moisturize the skin while you enjoy a facial massage to end the treatment.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
WE FEELIN’ THE LOVE
“I’ve been going to G for a while now and couldn’t have been more happy that she opened her own spot. G’s skills with the scissors are equally matched with the cool vibe of her shop and her ease of making conversation. Supporting G as a local business owner goes further than just getting a great cut. She is an inspiration to me for being an ally to some many in the community, she not only speaks it but lives it as well. If you haven’t gotten a dope cut from G, I couldn’t recommend it more.”
“Love getting my haircut by Georgette. Always delivers a dapper classic cut that gets me a lot of compliments. A blend of old school with a stylish twist. Good conversation too. The new shop has a great feel with lots of vintage character. Thanks Georgette”
Barber Collective News
I don’t even know where to start. I guess at the beginning. A good friend and I were discussing a popular meme that pops up every so often, especially around Pride. The original piece of art was an 1880 political cartoon by Thomas Nast. A skeleton bearing a banner saying ‘communist’ and a burning torch…
If someone would’ve told me, way back in 2017, that I would be cutting the hair of two Queer soccer players in my unfinished garage, I would’ve laughed in your face. It all started when Kyllian Perrin came in for a haircut. He was wearing an OL Reign track suit. After the usual intros and…
