My whole life any barber I’ve ever been to, including a relative of mine, has told me I have “a really tough head of hair to cut” due to its thick, coarse texture that grows in multiple different directions. When I sat in Jody’s chair for the first time and mentioned this to him, he looked surprised, took account of what I had going on, and essentially said “nah, I think we’re gonna be fine.” 30 minutes later I was walking out of the shop almost amazed to see what my hair looks like when it’s actually cut well, by a professional who was up for the challenge, if there even was one. Featuring a team of employees all working together to deliver a high quality service, a professional yet laid back atmosphere, and a great shop dog on hand, I’d highly recommend Jody and his team to anyone.

Been cutting my hair for 12 years and needed a change. I looked around the area and couldn’t find a bad review for Mentality. Tried them out, got my hair cut by Mike, and will definitely be back.

Josh did a great job, highly recommend especially for men with long hair. Super laid back staff and the shampoo // head massage is divine.

Jody, Avery & honestly everybody at the shop are AMAZING! Very friendly, professional, but also make you feel like family! Great service, product & business!

Mercedes did a great job. I really like how she made some suggestions and the result was great. My wife said I looked handsome when I got home - so clearly Mercedes can work minor miracles, too!

Took my son here for a haircut. Avery was great, and my son was happy with the whole experience. He is 15. He is never happy.

I needed a haircut and Googled 'shops near me'. They had the best ratings and reviews. The shop received those for a reason. Excellent shop. Erin did an excellent job and took her time to get my hair where it needed to be. She provided awesome service and cut.

I have been looking for a Barber for my son since we moved to Malvern in 2018, and time and time again we were disappointed. Finally we made an appointment with Steve, and my son’s haircut was exactly how the picture was. My son said he also enjoyed getting his hair washed. We are so satisfied! It is excellent service at Mentality Barber! We finally found a barber! Thanks Steve!

1st visit for haircut and shave with Amanda, this place was jumping busy, but it flowed seamlessly and has a great atmosphere. Amanda is personable and friendly with good conversation as she worked her craft and performed excellent service delivering a high & tight cut along with a full face shave starting with a hot towels and warm shaving lather to soften the surface of my face. The service was finished with a massaging shampoo by Faith. I walked out thoroughly enjoying my experience. Five Stars.

Kendall's skills are truly exceptional! With my short, thick hair, I showed her a picture of a style I don't usually go for but needed for a more professional look. Despite the challenge of the picture showing only one side, Kendall crafted a masterpiece, cutting my notoriously difficult hair with grace and ease. I'm beyond impressed with the results!

Walked in for the first time today at Mentality Barbers. I needed a beard trim, and had the pleasure of meeting Amanda G. She was very knowledgeable about beards, and did a great job getting my beard on the right path. She also gave me some really good tips for caring for my beard until the next visit. I’m looking forward to it.

As a man in the area with curly hair, I’ve found it difficult to find a barber who is adequate and knowledgeable in cutting my style of hair. I’ve searched for years to find a reliable person who can provide a high quality cut. I’ve found that person with Krystal. I recommend her to anyone else who understands my previous struggle.
— Sam M, via Google
I had a great experience my first time at MENtality | Main Line with Mike. He gave me exactly what I asked for and his attention to detail is second to none. I’ve been looking for the best haircut in the West Chester area and I’m glad the search is over. I will definitely be going back on the regular!
— Chris M, via Google
Once again, Neil (at the Chester Springs location) gave me a great haircut - he asked me what I wanted done, then gave me the A+ version of it. My wife (whose opinion is what REALLY counts) says Neil's haircuts are the best I've ever gotten.
— Dean G, via Google
Paige is great! Takes her time, really has an eye for detail and puts you totally at ease with her relaxed and friendly personality! It’s like a spa appointment more than just a beard treatment. The trim, shave, hot & cold towels, and beard lotion just make it a great experience! Can’t recommend Mentality and Paige enough!
— Michael B, via Google
This is what a barber shop should be! Erin did a great job. She may be relatively new to the profession, but she’s got great attention to detail and skills. The owner, Jodi is great guy and takes pride in his shop. It’s a cool place with nice vibe. ✂️ ?Highly recommended.

I've always had trouble finding good barbers for my curly hair. Decided to try out MENtality and couldn't be happier that I did. Avery did the best job ever! Super stoked. Great service all around.
— Ryan C, via Google
Before I found Mentality, and in turn Paige, I had 3 barbers completely neglect what I asked and they butchered my hair. The 3 times I've gotten my hair cut by Paige, each cut turned out better than I was expecting, and that's after the bar was set pretty high after the first cut. I couldnt be happier as a customer!
— Michael W, via Google
Hint: download the app! Great service and was able to see an experienced barber on short notice. Price isn't too crazy: more than the cheap franchises but less than a full-on salon. I will be returning often. Great atmosphere and fast service. Half an hour in and out!
— Carter, via Google
I was nervous a bit and wasn’t sure if the new hair style will look good. I absolutely love the new look. Mercedes was very friendly, polite and did a great job. This will be my go to place for all my salon needs. And I will make sure I refer this place and Mercedes to all my friends and colleagues at work.

The absolutely best barbers I've ever seen in one shop. May man Jody changed my image with a fresh new look when I was 62 and keeps me looking fresh! Jesse is awesome, Mercedes, Amanda, Josh and the rest of the staff are the great. Give em a try your won't be disappointed. Great atmosphere even with COVID!

Staff is great and always get a great haircut with Haylee. If you haven’t been here you definitely need to come check it out.
— Tom M, via Facebook
Great cuts for all! The three of us had an appointment for 6 pm last night which started promptly. Shave and haircuts for all of us. The staff is a quite a cast of characters as is the clientele. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating. Kids were there there as well.

My husband Frank visits Jody and his team regularly for his hair care and gets a fantastic hair cut! His hair is very thick and if not trimmed properly the back lays like stair steps and looks awful... never happens after a haircut at MENtality! Our grandson got his first haircut there and they were wonderful with him as he was only 2 years old! Henry was thrilled he got an award for being a good boy!!!
— Diann W.R., via Facebook
Very much impressed with Jesse. He was professional in every way! I have been going to the same Barber for nearly 30 years and have not strayed but for a few times(always a bad experience) and Today, I had a pleasant experience and a great haircut! Thank you Jesse!
— Chuck E, via Facebook
Jodys got big plans for the shop, a soft spot for first responders, military and police and tons of skill in his craft. Go, enjoy and look your best!!

First experience at MENtality today and it was amazing. Atmosphere is great and the hair cut and straight razor shave even better! I wouldn’t go anywhere else now. Haylee was great! I highly recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy a hair cut and/or shave experience.

Great haircut with Paige, awesome conversationalist and personality! Can’t wait to come back for my next cut. Really like this barbershop ? The shampoo and hot towels were great too!

As a new client, Tony took the time and care to see what I wanted and advised me on what he thought would look best -- the result being a great and stylish haircut that I am very pleased with!

Just had one of the best haircuts I’ve ever gotten at Mentality Barbers. This is my second visit, and i can gladly say ill never go anywhere else for a cut. The customer service is spot on, and the quality is amazing.

My first time getting a beard treatment. Amanda was wonderful, explained the approach she was planning, kept me informed the whole time, did an excellent job and gave me some good tips for maintaining beard till next visit.

Had a great experience today! Taylor was super friendly to talk to and gave a great cut. Will have to come back for future haircuts, great value for the quality of haircut you’re receiving.
— Joseph B, via Google
This was my first time to MENtality. I have always known about the place but never stopped in. I took a chance to try somewhere new and I’m glad I did. My stylist Taylor was incredible. She was friendly, inviting, and professional. She is a fantastic asset to have. I am glad to write that after living in the area for 3 months I have found “my Babrershop.” Thank you Taylor!

My go-to in Malvern/Frazer and Chester County. Staff are great, Talented and fun. Haircuts are always great and turn out well. They have lots of other services as well. They used to server beer pre-pandemic, ready for that to return! ? Edit: it has returned!!!
— Christopher J, via Google
The service was great, the people were friendly and helpful beyond my expectations. I've never been able to find a hairstyle that really suits me but today they helped me to have a truly great haircut for the first time ever!
— Wesley M, via Google
So happy with my cut and the service I received. Paige took her time and listened to my comments and concerns and worked with me and provided an amazing experience and amazing haircut…so happy I found her and this shop.

For years I’ve wondered how places like Great Clips and Super Cuts can have hair stylists that mess up almost every hair cut, the search for the perfect hair cut was on! After searching for so long, one day my friends recommended me to a girl they went to school with, Haylee! Well that haircut was so perfect I had to marry house, one kid, wedding vows, and many haircuts later, I still recommend her over all!
— Cody A, via Facebook
My son has sensory issues and haircuts have never been an easy thing… until today. He had a great experience getting his hair cut with no issues and he loves it! He already told me he wants to come back.
— Katie P, via Google
Only have good things to say about this place. Josh was great. He has amazing skill and technique. The shampoo and massage was soo relaxing too. Will definitely be coming back. Very happy with the experience.
— Ashwin S, via Google
My son and I have been getting our haircut here for over 5 years and I couldn’t be happier. Jody takes great care of my son who could extremely challenging sometimes. As for me, he is always great in helping with new styles when the current style I have has worn thin on me.
— Jim S, via Facebook
MENtality quickly became my favorite and go to. They have a good group of barbers that are committed to quality. I’ve now been over 10 times and I still look forward to my next cut.
— Nihir K, via Google
Super nice, professional, friendly. I like there's a place like this for guys to get groomed and fussed over. It's nice to go in, hang, relax, and get tuned up.
— Larry B, via Google
With a work schedule so crazy that I don’t know when I can make an appointment until the week of I can’t guarantee myself the same barber each time, that’s how much I trust Mentality, knowing that no matter who I get I will have an outstanding experience, and that’s exactly what Tony gave me. Amazing haircut, awesome experience, if I could give 100 stars I would.
— Hyerbam, via Google
Excellent customer service! Josh really knows how to cut hair and enjoys his job! The atmosphere there makes one very relaxed!
— Brandon W, via Google
I haven’t been back to Mentality since the pandemic started and was long overdue for a proper cut. The first thing I notice is the new renovation which opened up the entire space; the place looks awesome! When it came time for the cut, I chatted with Steve about what I wanted and he was immediately on the same page. Having that trust with your barber is huge and Steve has that in spades. Honestly, I don’t know how, but he got even better. I wanted a mid fade with the top blended in and he delivered. You couple that with the bomb shampoo / condition head massage by Faith and I forgot how much I missed this place. What a quality experience. I can’t wait to go back. Amazing job to the Mentality Team.

I had a really great experience with you guys. My barber had a really great, light touch. I almost relaxed too much and fell right out of the chair. 🙂 Looking forward to the next appointment.

Haylee did a great job! I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted my hair to look but I gave her a general idea and she just used her skills to help me out! I was very happy with the outcome. She was also very kind and personable! Overall great experience.

Mercedes is amazing as always. Very willing to listen and exceed my needs. Feels like being part of a family. She remembers exactly what I did last time and will make adjustments as needed. The entire staff is very friendly. From the receptionist to the barber and the shampoo stations.

Steve was excellent. Great attention to detail and wonderful experience at the shop. Looking forward to next time.

Amanda gave me a great cut, I highly recommend her. My last haircut was over a year from when she cut it and she did a great job. She also recommended the right products for my hair. Thank you Amanda!
— Alex P, via Google
Always a great experience with Jody. Excellent haircut - and the entire mentality experience from initial greet, hair wash, cut and checkout is enjoyable (Faith and Ella are excellent). I have been coming here since September/October 2018. Coming here is one of the best parts of my month.
