We really enjoy the skilled, quality, cut that we get here. The vibe is great and welcoming for young and old.
Fantastic experience
Had my looking clean for my interview, I got the job, and the cut didn’t cost a fortune. Will for sure be going back.
Marcel was great! Sharp lines, great symmetry and a cool guy. Thanks Marcel!
Jason Harfoush will get you right everytime🤝 5/5
Benny hooked it up. I’m on vacation and came in on a whim and lucked out with a slot available. I had a messed up haircut from a few weeks ago and he blended it to perfection. Great skin fade. Highly recommend. Good vibes and great price for the quality of the cut. Will hit him up again next time I’m in town.
My barber was Abz. He was fantastic! Not only did he give me a solid cut, but we got to talking about hip hop/rap. He has pleasant chair side manner and can keep a good conversation.I came from out of state and I am glad I came here! The other customers looked really pleased and happy as well. This place has a good atmosphere!
Jason does great design work! Easy to schedule and was a pleasure to work with. Would recommend.
Had a great cut with Abz, would highly recommend
Before n after he loves it thank u jason
I have had countless cuts with varying styles from Jason H and he crushes it every time! Great convos and 10/10 haircuts. He is one of the best barbers around.
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!
If you want your fade done right, see Jason H. He’s an all around fantastic guy and super talented barber. Jason pays attention to detail and takes pride in his work. I highly recommend.
Great experience! Scheduled with Abz and he was really good, 10/10 cut, place is good and in a great spot too! Def recommend
Momentum is an incredible barbershop. The staff are all very cool and talented. I particularly love Andrzej but all of the staff are great. Cool vibes and good people.
Always a great haircut, the staff is absolutely amazing. Hands down best barbershop in Maine.
Abz: great guy, great energy, great cut!
I booked online and selected any available staff. 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!
My friend went to Momentum and had Abz. Absolutely amazing lad, charming, entertaining, and extremely talented. Honest to god, he saved my friend and really just transformed him. Amazing people, amazing atmosphere, and super talented barbers!
Great barbershop, Abz cut my hair and he did a great job- highly recommend!
I’ve been going to momentum for a few years now and always have had a positive experience with all the barbers, but I wanted to give a particular shoutout to Abz today. Professional, conversational, and gave a great cut in only 30 minutes. I would recommend Abz and momentum as a whole to anyone getting a haircut in the Portland area!
Got a last minute cut from Abz and couldn’t be happier. Quick, professional and the cut looks great.
Came in on short notice and Abz hooked me up with a great cut.
Fantastic barbers, walked in got an appointment for the following day. Trimmed my hair to order and love the look. Cheers mates!
Allie is the best! Always does the best job!
Art - I am so happy with the haircut, service and friendly conversation that Art provides. He is very knowledgeable and professional and I enjoy my time in the chair. I highly recommend him and look forward to him growing his business in Portland ME!
Best barbershop in Portland ! Clean , stylish shop with great atmosphere ! Y’all have to book with Joel ! All it took was one appointment and now he’s my go to barber !
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.
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!!!
