About Us

The Pinnacal of Excellence

When a man gets a hair cut, he should not see it as a chore or just another task that he has to complete before the week's end. In fact, a man should look forward to the time he spends in the barber chair. At Paragon Barber + Lounge, we care about your experience and while you are in our chair, your time there will be filled with nothing but high-end service. Men walk into our shop expecting excellence and they walk out not only feeling good, but looking good, as well.


Our shop was designed to be a place where men go to retreat. We strive to represent the pinnacle of excellence in the look and feel of our shop, how we treat our clients and the services that we provide.  At Paragon, our barbers are expertly trained and are dedicated to their clients. Come in and enjoy a fresh cut, a straight razor line up, watching some sports, playing video games or just the usual guy talk. Schedule with us today to experience the excellence that will keep you coming back.
