I so look forward to my appt. each month with Dot. She is absolutely incredible and so very skilled. The atmosphere is great, and the price for the quality is unreal. They have options to fit all needs and looks. Tech savvy is their game with an app to book and pay for appointments.

Refuge For Men is breaking
the mold on men's barbershop

So it's been about 2 years since my last review and Dot has done fantastic things with Refuge For Men. I wish there was a higher rating available for updates because the new place is leaps and bounds over the last. I have been a loyal client to Dot since early 2012 and it's been great to watch her business grow and come into it's own. I consider her my friend more than my barber...that's the bottom line at RFM.

The new location on Main St (across the street from Bombolini's) has it all. Huge open space with high ceilings, modern leather barbershop seats/equipment, brand new pool table, huge flat screen, sport items, grooming products, video games...everything a man would want in a barber. Ask Dot about renting out the space for your next's that big. OH YEAH! There is a Refuge For Men mobile app that can features scheduling, describes services, and assists in payment...all in one. It's professionally done and works flawlessly.

Not only is the space updated but the staff has grown to accommodate the massive demand this place is generating. You might have to wait a day or so to see Dot and her "owner's chair/corner" but walk-ins are welcome and can be seen by it's growing staff of licensed barbers. There is somebody for every style and hair-type. In the last couple years I have only seen amazing talent work at Refuge and can honestly say I haven't seen a bad haircut.

Refuge For Men is breaking the mold on men's barbershops and is generating a lot of respect in the RVA business community for what she has been able to accomplish in the last few years. RFM is on the rise. Stop by or make an appointment ASAP. You won't regret it and are going to feel like a million bucks after your visit. I promise.

Great Field Trip

I just wanted to thank you again for allowing us to come to your shop. Even though the students didn’t ask a lot of questions they had a lot to say when we came back to the classroom. They really loved your openness and willingness to talk with them more in depth about the business. They felt that it was a very relaxed atmosphere. One of my students even commented that when his dad comes to get him for Thanksgiving he is going to suggest they come over to your shop to get haircuts.
