What it lacks in pizzazz, Bart's makes up for in service and old-school skill. This cozy, no fuss–no muss, three-chair shop has been snipping away in Portland since 1928, and current owner Bart Garmon has kept it true to its roots, offering a classic menu of services, including shaves and fades. You'll leave Bart's with a five-star look, a full wallet, and the feeling that you've just made a new friend. Walk-ins are welcome, so there is no need to book in advance, but a line of savvy locals is inevitable. [Haircuts and shaves, $21; 518 SE Morrison St., 503-233-8603]
