Best Barber

Sailor Bup's Barbershop, downtown

Gold Winner Mark Peyton, Sailor Bup’s Barbershop

Silver Winner Michael Phillips, One Block Barbershop


Bronze Winner Rob Oxner, Saint Lou’s Gentlemen’s Barbershop


Sure, you might not be able to get a beer anymore due to some Hunger Games-level dystopian police work, but Mark Peyton and Sailor Bup’s Barbershop are still the people to see for a vintage beard experience. The old-school downtown barber took top place in this year’s poll in their first year of operations, though Michael Phillips from One Block and Rob Oxner of Saint Lou’s are hot on Peyton’s heels. Seems like Halifax is experiencing an artisanal beard and barber revolution!
