ABOUT US

WELCOME TO

Momentum Barbershop

Opening in March, 2013 with a goal to change the standard of men’s grooming in portland, Maine; we set out in a mission that quickly cemented in modern barbering. Introducing cleaner cuts, better service, high reliability, consistent scheduling, and straight razor finishes. Something that previously was unfamiliar to Portland natives. 6.5 years later, we’ve spawned a movement and have inspired dozens of numerous new shops, barber schools, and dozens of fresh barbers all over Maine. With our new location being a turn of the leaf, we’ve set new goals to take things to the next level and look forward to the next segment here in Portland.

Great convos and 10/10 haircuts. He is one of the best barbers around.Ian HatchIan Hatch ★★★★★ Excellent atmosphere, super chill staff, and most importantly, incredibly high-quality haircuts! Joel, in particular, is the best barber I've ever had; he has created and nurtured my mullet for the last year or so now, and it's been the perfect blend of styles that I'm looking for. Cannot recommend this place enough!Kelly ParisKelly Paris ★★★★★ If you want your fade done right, see Jason H. He’s an all around fantastic guy and super talented barber.

Luckily for me it was Abz that I got assigned to. Abz was professional, relatable and overall an excellent service. Abz has earned himself a loyal customer now. Someone who takes the time for a perfect cut, but at the same time has a meaningful and connected conversation goes beyond the cut!!! If you’re looking for someone who is next level service and cut look not further, Abz is your man!Emil AltarasEmil Altaras ★★★★★ My friend went to Momentum and had Abz.

Y’all have to book with Joel ! All it took was one appointment and now he’s my go to barber !LESLIE “MAXAMILLION” CRAINELESLIE “MAXAMILLION” CRAINE ★★★★★ GREAT SPOT TO PUT BARBER'S TO WORK .UNLIKE YANKEE GIRLS WHO ARE AT THIER BEST OFF THIER FEET, THESE BARBERS CUT HAIR SHAVE FACES WITH RAZORS AND STILL HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR .TannerTanner ★★★★★ Just had a great hair cut with Julian. I usually see Ben or Allie, but they were both booked up. I saw Julian instead. You know when you leave a hair cut appointment and it looks better than you expected? Yeah, that. I explained the cut I wanted and he let me know that he typically specializes in clipper-cuts, but he’d make it happen.I think I was in and out of the chair in 18 minutes and the cut is awesome. I’d recommend this guy to anyone. I’ve only worked with these three barbers, but so far that back corner of this shop’s got it going on.Jonathan ChongJonathan Chong ★★★★★ Great service and haircut! Ben was amazing and made me feel welcome upon my first visit. Not from the area, but the haircut he gave me felt like one I would get back home. Highly recommend Momentum Barbershop and a plus if you can get Ben!!!Bob OuelletteBob Ouellette ★★★★★ Consistently great haircuts best I’ve had in my life I’m 68 the barbers/stylists are greatJosh ChandlerJosh Chandler ★★★★★ Did a great job on a bald fade and beard trimMaria MitchellMaria Mitchell ★★★★★ Been coming here a couple years now. I bring my two sons now 4 and 13. The team is always welcoming and good to us. Our original barber Ryan moved out of state. It was sad to see him go he’s been cutting my youngest since he was 1 giving him really nice skilled cuts. He promised to leave us in good hands and he did! Our new barber Marcel is great, and also gives very skilled cuts. He also got my 4 y/o to graduate from sitting in my lap for his cut to sitting in the chair on his own! I highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for a skilled fresh cut.David FriedmanDavid Friedman ★★★★★ Best barber shop in all of Portlandjs_loader
