At Joe Black Barbershop, our barbers are passionate about their profession and not just cutting hair.

Born in Louisiana, John Brown, also known as “Joe Black”, began cutting hair over twenty years ago. Through out New Orleans, his hair cut and its distinctive style was known simply by his nickname. So when customers came to John requesting a “Joe Black”, he took it as more than a validation of his skills cutting hair, he knew that he had found success.

After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, John came to Houston thinking it to be a temporary destination. However, Houston’s Third Ward community welcomed him and his family with open arms, allowing John to make it his home. Since opening up this location, John has invested in the Third Ward community by participating in school drives, which has even drawn coverage from local news stations.

From New Orleans to Houston, John has worked to ensure that customers always receive personable service and an exceptional hair cut. So come to Joe Black Barbershop when you want more than a haircut, come to get a “Joe Black”.
