Fantastic family owned and operated business! After moving to Sarasota I was I. Search of a place to get my hair cut after using the same person for over 10 years I was nervous. I went to 5 different places and was treated horribly and told we can’t do it now, you will have to come back and various other excuses. I wondered into Mel’s without high hopes of getting my hair cut that day and was greeted by Mel , her husband and two other employees that all at the same time said come on in, we will be with you in a few mins. Even though they all had people in their chairs. They were actually enjoying their jobs, talking with each other and the customers, really made me feel at home! Thank you to the team! You have earned a customer for life!

Had a really great experience at Mel’s barber shop. The shop is super nice inside and everyone is very friendly and inviting. Jose is an incredible barber and really takes his time to make sure you leave with a superb hair cut. It’s obvious that he loves what he does. I’ll make it a point to visit Mel’s again next time I’m in Sarasota.Edit: I came back to Mel’s just about a year later from this original review and wanted to confirm that this is absolutely the best barber shop I have ever been to. Jose is top notch and I wish I had a barber like him back home. If you’re in the area and need a cut, (or even if you don’t need one, but want to look your best), stop in and see Jose, you will not be disappointed!!!

Mel's is great! Everyone is so nice. I had my haircut there for the first time two weeks ago and Joey cut my hair EXACTLY the way I wanted. He's a great barber and he's very personable! I found my new spot!

It’s always a tough call to get a fade when you’re on vacation. I found the perfect spot. Mel’s got me looking fresh and I’m glad I got in there. They take their time and have great attention to detail. The spot is also very clean and welcoming. I’ll be back next time I’m in Sarasota.
Just had a cut and shave with Joey Maldonado.In our crazy world when people do a good job it seems like they are the exception rather then the rule! First time coming to this location and could not be happier! Make an appointment with Joey, you will be glad you did!!!
I stopped by while visiting my mother here in Sarasota. If you are looking for a cut, get in touch with Jose and his crew, and they will hook you up! Killer cut great guys! Thank you guys from Iowa! #KTBF

We're in town for a family wedding and my husband needed a haircut. Stopped into Mel's after a quick Google search and we're very happy we did! Walked right in, no wait. Fantastic service from all staff, the owner kindly introduced himself, calling us by name. This type of family-owned barber shop is precious and rare. Don't look further for a quality barber in Sarasota, this one is KING. 11/10 recommend.

I’m so glad i found Mel’s! Jose is the only one in SRQ that does a proper fade. This guy is incredibly talented, i call him the “hair whisperer”. My son won’t let anyone but Jose cut his hair. Great place and friendly folks!

Mel’s Old City Barbershop is the place to go!! Josh does a great cut, I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for but he pointed me in the right direction and the cut came out great!! Family atmosphere, clean and friendly. I’ve been down in Florida for a year and haven’t found a barber that I was comfortable with. Won’t go anywhere else!!

Amazing service, friendly staff. They did my entire groomsmen’s party and didn’t even break a sweat. Next time I’m in Sarasota, I know where I’ll be going.

Stopped into Mel’s while in town on business. Josh knocked it out the park with a fresh fade. Thanks, man. I’ll be back!
Best in the business! Used Jose as a feel in cut while my barber was on vacation, now the rest is history he’s now my barber for almost 2 years now. Set up appointments and just love the atmosphere. Josh their other barber there is awesome too! You’ll not be disappointed so stop in and get a cut!

Clean facility, chill environment. Got a cut & beard done by Josh. He gave me a great consultation before the cut. He takes his time, made sure he gave me a fine detailed blurry fade & sharp line up. Top notch customer service & cut. I will definitely be back. A+
