ManBasics on FM 1488 - Best Barber The Woodlands

ManBasics is thrilled to announce the opening of our newest location serving Conroe, Spring, and The Woodlands area.  4130 FM 1488 Suite 106.   We are located almost next to Kitchen 1488, just a little east of Saddle River Range (for those who know the area).

The Original Speakeasy Barbershop The Woodlands

ManBasics Speakeasy BARbershop

ManBasics is the Original Speakeasy Barbershop.  There are a million places you can go to that play pop music (loudly) and have ESPN playing on an endless and monotonous loop.   Most of the time there isn't even a game on anyway.

At ManBasics we play a kick-ass custom selection of big band and swing music.   We also play nothing but classic movies on the TV.   

Oh, and did we mention we have a full bar?

Complimentary Drinks For All

The ManBasics Whiskey Old Fashioned

Look, we are not going to pretend like we came up with the idea of serving complimentary beverages at our facility.   Guys, the truth is "the ladies" had this perfected WAY before any guys did.   What do you think your wife is doing when she goes and gets her nails done?   

"She's just getting her nails done, bro!"

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!   Oh brother, you're so naive.   That's cute.

Come on man, our better halves have been going and getting sauced while they had their nails done since . . . well, let's just say your Grandma knows what's up.

Best Barber Shops In The Woodlands

Don't believe us?  Here's a little video evidence.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, well then a video must be like . . . a bazillion words. 


The ManBasics Whiskey Old Fashioned

We aren't talking about crap beer in a plastic cup either.  At ManBasics we offer a full bar, with two craft beers (from Southern Star Brewery in Conroe, TX) on tap served in a real damn pint glass.

Or, sample what is becoming the World Famous ManBasics Whiskey Old Fashioned.  We wouldn't lie to you.   It doesn't suck.

Firstly, it is made with our unique "Not So Simple Syrup" . . . a fantastic concoction of brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cardamom, and star anise.  Honestly, it's amazing.   It makes all the difference. 

Then we mix that with bourbon, add a Luxardo style cherry and flame an orange peel . . . serve it all up in a crystal tumbler.   

Seriously, it's the real deal.

Oh, and our "Not So Simple Syrup" is now available for sale at all ManBasics locations so you can duplicate the best Whiskey Old Fashioned you have ever had AT HOME!

Best Haircut The Woodlands

Look, we get it.   Having the coolest, swankiest, most laid back, speakeasy atmosphere PLUS a full bar where we serve drinks like you are an adult instead of a college student with a fake ID . . . that can get you in the door.   But, we don't want clients to come in to ManBasics once.   We want them to know they have found their new place to get hair and barber services.  

That means having awesome barbers and stylists who know their stuff and will leave you looking and feeling great . . . so you want to come back again and again!

So, ManBasics makes a point of hiring the best barber in the Woodlands.  We stylists capable of giving the best haircut in the Woodlands.   We make sure have have barbers who will give the best beard trim in the Woodlands.

ManBasics Serves Spring, Conroe, and The Woodlands

If you are in The Woodlands, Spring, or Conroe area searching on google for "Best Men's Salon Near Me" . . . if we aren't first on the list, we should be! 

We're your huckleberry.    


ManBasics doesn't just hire ANYBODY.  We pride ourselves in only hiring one out of every 4-5 barbers or stylists that apply to ManBasics. 

Simply put, our barbers and stylists are second to none.   Seriously, we will put them up against any shop in the industry.   They are that good.   

ManBasics Classic Barber Chair

When you sit down in our classic barber chair (hopefully with our world famous Whiskey Old Fashioned in hand!), our barber our stylist will begin by consulting on EXACTLY what you want done.

Some patrons bring in photos if they are looking to make a drastic change.   Sometimes, all they have to say is "make me look good".  

However it happens, our barbers and stylists determine what you want and discuss with you what they are going to do in order to make it happen.   No fuss.   No surprises.  

 Wait, What's the Difference Between a Barber and Stylist?

We get it.   Honestly, most people don't know the difference between a barber and a stylist.  

Without making it TOO complicated . . . basically, a barber and a stylist are BOTH more than qualified to do a great job of cutting hair (we did mention how selective we are on our hiring practices, right?).  

However, a BARBER is able to do some things that a stylist cannot do.  Namely, anything to do with a straight razor blade,

Barbers undergo hundreds of extra hours of training in order to become specialists with a straight razor blade.  Straight razors are used for straight razor shaves, head shaves, beard trims with a straight razor edge up, or even partial shaves (for clients with a goatee for example . . . part beard trim part shave).  

Barbers can Be Stylists, but Stylists Are Not Barbers

To be sure, there are some other subtle differences . . . but basically, that is it.   A stylist will give you a kick-ass haircut at ManBasics.   A barber can give you a kick-ass haircut AND give you a kick-ass straight shave or straight razor beard trim edge up.  Most barbers start out getting a stylist certification first, and then get their barbers license additionally.   Although, those who plan to specialize in men's styling often go straight to getting their barbers license. 

Service Barber Stylist Barber & Stylist
Haircut Yes Yes Yes
Straight  Yes No No
Beard Trim Yes Yes Yes
Head Shave Yes No No
Manicure No Yes No
Straight Razor Beard Trim Yes No No


At the end of the day it all depends on what service you are looking to have performed.  Our online booking tool won't allow you to book a service with a stylist or barber who is not licensed to perform that service, so we take all the guesswork out for you.   Just book what you need!
