Brass Tacks to specialize in men’s haircuts and shaves

brass tacksBarber Brandon White has leased part of the old Oak Cliff Mercantile Building in the Bishop Arts District for a specialty barber shop.

Brass Tacks will offer traditional men’s haircuts and straight-razor shaves.

“There’s nothing else like this in Dallas,” he says. “And this is the perfect area for it.”

White is the son of a hairstylist, and he became a barber about three years ago. He has worked at Floyd’s 99 Barber Shop and Sweet 200.

When the shop opens in a week or two, haircuts will cost $25 and a shave $30.

White says he’ll invite musicians to perform on the weekends, and he’ll offer a free beer with a haircut and keep a “man cave” feel to the place.

“We’re keeping it simple,” he says. “Back to the basics. That’s why it’s called Brass Tacks.”

Small Planet E Bikes opened in a larger part of the mercantile building in March. And Hattie’s owner Tony Alvarez is planning a restaurant in the old El Padrino taco stand.

    Guess you don’t know Rob’s Chop Shop. Glad to have more, but there is nothing unique about a barber shop in my experience young man. Welcome to the 21st century. Btw, there are tons of old school barber shops in Oak Cliff and Dallas. Look up from your tablet and see.

    Milton has politely made a pretty good point. There tends to be a lot more attention paid to new businesses that open in Bishop Arts or appeal to that particular demographic. To be fair, The Advocate does a better job than most in covering all kinds of OC businesses. Congratulations to both Brass Tacks and Urban Soul Studio!

    My name is Milton Campos and I’m owner of Urban Soul Studio in the Winnetka Heights District. I want to congratulate Brandon on his venture and would like to welcome him to the vast barber community in the Oak Cliff area. Along with The Kingz Club in Bishop Arts and going on 5 years in business, we offer classic & modern cuts while offering a relaxed environment for the modern gentleman and it’s great to see Brass Tacks join the existing list of great barbershops in the community. Congratulations once again Brandon and hope to meet you soon!
