Welcome to

198 Barber Shop:  The #1 Barber Shop

for your child's haircut.

Please click on ''First Haircut Pictures''.  Sorry we got lazy and stopped putting first haircut pictures on the website.  All of the Barbers do awesome haircuts and are great with kids.  We still have all of our first haircut celebs of 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 & 2005 on the web site!!!  198 Barber Shop has "FIRST HAIRCUT CERTIFICATES" for all of our new little customers.   

NOTE TO PARENTS:  198 Barber Shop will happily trim the hair of any not so happy participant (screaming child)!!!


***Kids (and parents) love our "KIDDIE KORNER", where children can play and read while they are waiting for their haircuts.***


It took over 3 months to turn the old Produce Basket location into a modern and beautiful Barber Shop.  Please stop in and experience one of the best haircuts that you have ever had in your life!!  Our goal is to cut your hair the way that YOU want it cut, in a happy, friendly atmosphere. 

198 Barber Shop is an "Old Fashioned Barber Shop" with a modern twist.  We specialize in clipper haircuts, which consist of regular haircuts - tapered, rounded or blocked off, flat tops, fades, crew cuts, high and tights or whatever is in style at the moment!!!  We layer cut hair, trim beards and mustaches, and do hot lather face & head shaves.  The Barbers will shave around your ears and neck, with hot lather, after your clipper haircut! 

198 Barber Shop is located on Rt. 198, 1/4 mile EAST of the 295/Baltimore Washington Parkway at the old Produce Basket Location.

The Power of a Haircut!

I write today to let you know I am looking for a buyer for 198 Barber Shop.

It has been my privilege beyond words to have been able to start a business in Laurel over 12+ years ago.  We survived during a very difficult recession.

I am deeply grateful to all of you that have supported us over the years.  I will miss you.

As for me I will be cutting hair out of 178 Barber Shop (178barbershop.com) in Annapolis.  I am looking forward to reducing my responsibilities.

My hope is the new owner will have talented Barbers to add to Ashley and Matt.

I will keep you posted.

Thank you,
