In The Black

An Elevated Experience

In the Black is conceived with one goal in mind, to create the best men’s grooming experience available in Houston. It all starts with a personal connection – a feeling of belonging to a community – and a commitment to excellence. Each of us has a story to tell, and we’re here to share ours with you and listen as you share yours with us.

Some say that the barber chair is like a confessional – sharing great victories, questionable choices, and thoughts on life, sports, movies – whatever happens to be on your mind at the time. It’s more than small talk, it’s a relationship of trust and confidence. The creators of In The Black know all too well the benefits of having someone to help you escape from the everyday monotony, provide a fresh perspective, and maybe even solve some of the world’s problems. All of our barbers have their own stories, and we encourage you to share yours over a drink and an excellent cut. This type of atmosphere is something we encourage, as we’ve experienced firsthand how it can change people’s lives. That’s why we created In The Black – not only to provide the best men’s grooming services in Houston, but to encourage relationships as we tackle the day-to-day to help each other rebound, achieve and excel.

What They're Saying

This place is a gem that I’m glad I found. The staff is great and the service is even better!!!!! I HIGHLY recommend visiting this place for your next haircut and/or beard trim. Also, their drink selection is top notch.

I’ve been to many barbershops in many different states. In the Black was, by FAR, the most enjoyable experience I’ve ever had while getting my haircut. Everyone was extremely polite, and everyone who sat down in a chair walked out with a wonderful haircut. I won’t be going anywhere else...

This place is awesome, best place around. No complaints at all. The attention to detail is amazing. I have a pretty basic hairstyle but they treat you like you’re going to be making an appearance on tv or something and take the time to make you look the best you can.

I have a great admiration for people who have a passion for their craft and that is exactly what you will find from the Barbers at “In The Black” on Washington Avenue. From the moment I walked through the door I found the atmosphere crisp and stylish; yet inviting and comfortable.
