The Standard Barbershop
10409 Main St., Suite B, Fairfax
Just because a place is new doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with a strong foundation. The Standard Barbershop, owned by husband-and-wife team Tommy Cheung and Wendy Wong, opened in 2015 but has gained a strong following. The Standard offers services befitting any barbershop—haircut, beard trim, straight-razor shave—but they do it in a fashion that harks back to the days of your grandfather, when quality was king. Cheung comes with a pedigree of working under longtime Baltimore barber Simon V. “Cy” Avara and as a master trainer for The Art of Shaving and works with a handful of skilled barbers and the store’s official greeter Sega, a Fairfax Animal Shelter rescue. The shop also carries a slew of grooming products like The Bearded Bastard, Layrite, Suavecito, Reuzel and Uppercut Deluxe.
