I'm new to town and was wondering what the best barbershop is in
Cookeville or Sparta? I'm in the Marine Reserves and need a barber who is not afraid to go really short. Does any shop do straight razor shaves? Thanks

i'd go with vetran's it's a really good cut, sometime u have to wait, but in my opinion that means they're doing a good job.(it's a barber shop not a salon)i think they do straight razor cuts but i'm not entirely sure on that.

I didn't work there, I just forgot to change my name from a previous post. Jonathan and Mike are the 2 barbers there. I know Mike does straight razor cuts. I went to school with him.

The Best Barber Shop in town is next to Goodyear on Willow Ave. I used to go to Veterans, which is good too, but now I go there. Best in town.

I am not a barber but I love barber shops. I've moved around with my career and whenever I move somewhere new I try to find an oldschool barber shop that gives clean cuts and uses a straight razor. I've been to every barber shop in Cookeville and here's what I've found.

Village is pretty good but with the women in there if feels like it's half salon. Crosscuts is the black shop. Also half salon. The guy at Gentleman's is good if you like a massage with your haircut (creepy). Johnny's is a decent "hole in the wall" kind of place but there's only one guy there and when I went he was yakking on the phone the whole time. Bill's in Algood was great but I didn't get a neck shave and he's got to be close to retirement age. Campbell's was okay. Cute shop but something didn't quite feel right to me. Maybe it's because the shop is new. Watson's was a little strange to me. The guy seemed grumpy and there were screaming kids in there the whole time. Maybe I just went on a bad day.

For me, Veterans is exactly what I was looking for. I knew as soon as I walked in that it was my kind of place. Clean shop, big American and Marine flags on the wall (and lots of other cool stuff) and two barbers who can cut and have a sense of humor. It just felt right to me. Plus they use a vacuum with their clippers and a you get a straight blade neck shave after your cut.

The downside of Veterans is that they're always busy so expect a wait. They charge 11 bucks which isn't the cheapest cut around but still a good price. Not the cheapest and still having a line all the time probably means their doing something right.

My name is Jonathan Williams and this will be the one and only time I post on here. I appreciate the kind words that have been written about Veterans Barber Shop, which I own, but I have had nothing to do with any of these posts.

I have worked hard over the past 4+ years to build a solid business and I do not and will not speak poorly of any of my competitors. I wish them all well as there is enough business to go around. I have no idea who any of these other people are and I have not put anyone up to getting on here and talking about my shop or anyone else's.

If any of you want to visit me or Mike at Veterans, come on down. If you go to another shop, that's okay too. Whatever you do, please don't accuse me or insinuate that I or anyone acting on my behalf is posting on here. I have better things to do than to get on an anonymous discussion board and run down the competition. My reputation is too important for such pettiness. That's all.

When jonathon Williams of Veterans Barber Shop was with CPD I was a young man who had a pioneer navigation unit installed in my vehicle. He pulled me over on 111 one night on the way to the gym wrote me a ticket for "driving while watching tv" the following day the headline of the herald was just that and was on channel 2, 4, & 5 news cost me$800 for a atty & $200 court costs and had to remove the unit from my truck. This was before nav units were popular I was 19 then $1k was not easy to come by. REDICULOUS
