About Marcus

I like to enhance peoples' appearance, so they look good and feel great about themselves. - Marcus B

From a Humble Home to Flatiron Fresh.

Groomed by Guyanese experts from an early age, Marcus has known the secret to his craft from the start: “It doesn’t matter where you're from, Georgetown or Downtown, Johannesburg or Williamsburg, if you look good, you will feel great about yourself. And everyone is different, so, for each new client I learn what you like and I tailor it to you.” Marcus’ clients continually remark that on top of his signature service, it is his versatility that keeps it fresh. Sit for any particular style and you will experience a masterclass of technique, from classic scissors-over finger to hi-def razor detailing.

Barbering By Marcus was established in April 2011.

Look Good, Feel Great! - Marcus

  • The Gentleman’s
    Shave or Beard Trim $50

    A unique combo of classic & modern barbering:

    Pre-shave oil: Creates a protective barrier between the skin and the razor blade to allow a smooth glide.

    Hot Vapor: The effects of direct steam soften the beard, open pores and cleanse the skin for a closer and comfortable shave.

    Shaving cream: A creamy lather for an extra gentle shave.

    After shave mask: Absorbs toxins and impurities while tightening the pores and replenishing essential nutrients lost during the shaving process.

    After shave balm & moisturizer: Applied as part of a therapeutic rub, it relaxes the facial muscles and helps increase blood flow to the surface of the skin leaving you looking good and feeling great!Gentleman's Shave

"After I stumbled upon Marcus' shop, my search is over for the best Barber in NY. I would't trust anyone else with my hair. Marcus truly does take pride in his work, and it shows when I walk out of there feeling confident and with the look I want. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment, you will walk out of there feeling like a new man."

I've been going to Marcus for about a year (previously when he was at Barber Bart's) and he does a phenomenal job. He pays attention to the details, and with the razor finish, literally doesn't leave a hair out of place.
