Welcome to Austin's Barber Shop!

Austin's is one of those rare places where you actually look forward to waiting!

A look inside Austin's Barber Shop in downtown Beloit



Your host and barber, Rod Gottfredsen, greets you with a hearty, "Hello!"

Time has been kind to this quaint piece of Americana. Very few changes have been made to the "classic" barber shop's style in its nearly 100 years of history. You still see the leather, porcelain, and nickel-plated barber chairs; the Kohler pedestal shampoo bowl that's dated "7-12-16" and solid wood barber cabinets.



With over 40 years of experience Rod, is well versed in all types of hair cutting, from crewcuts to classic cuts, high and tights, to long in back short on top mullets. Rod's motto is, "Classic barbering with style."

Stop in and have a seat, enjoy a cold bottle of pop, read one of the many magazines, and enjoy the barber shop banter!

If you see the "Your Next" sign in the window that means just what it says, "Your Next" without an appointment.



After seeing the airplane seat some kids can't wait to get their hair cut!

Austin's is considered a community center where, just as in times past, politics are argued, sports discussed and boys are allowed to hang out with the men, at least for as long as it takes to get a haircut.


Kids Welcome

And there's more than fancy chairs to keep young customers interested! Austin's Barber Shop has many special treats for younger customers. There's the Coca-cola bottle collection, computer and board games, books and magazines. Children can even learn how we used to open our pop bottles on the vintage Coca-cola vending machine! (Hint: We didn't have twist-off caps.)
