Customer Service at its best!!!!!– Michael R. (East Beltline Customer)
I used to live in Grand Rapids near your Cheshire shop, but recently moved to Phoenix, AZ. I’ll be back in Grand Rapids for a work trip and I look forward to coming in for a shave before going to a wedding over the weekend. I just wanted to let you know that even after being out of state for 2 ½ years, I had no problem recalling exactly who to go to while I’m back. Your shops are exactly what every town needs. I love the hot towel shaves so much, I threw away my razor and rely strictly on the skilled hands of my barber here. – Chris T. (Plainfield Customer)
A haircut that feels this good might not be legal…but while it is, I’ll be coming back. The service provider that cut my hair was sweet, pretty and personable. Personality was amazing, smile was off the charts, and she told me she changed to Jude’s because guys would joke around with her, which would make her job more fun. Fun. What an amazing feature in a haircut. Such customer service will make Jude’s the preferred destination for guys all over the area. – Tedrick S. (Fuller Customer)
I just had my haircut at your East Lansing location yesterday and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I can say with certainty that I have found a new favorite barbershop for anytime I am in Michigan. – Jason F. (Saginaw Customer)
The experience was just beyond words. My first time was amazing. I can’t wait to tell my friends. – Elbert D. (Saginaw Customer)
I ALMOST FORGOT I WAS GETTING A HAIRCUT! – Charles W. (Cottonwood Customer)
Just wanted to take this opportunity to send kudos to you for this wonderful business you’ve developed here in Grand Rapids. I am currently caring for a gentlemen with Alzheimer’s and your shop has been a blessing in disguise—for him and myself. I take Howard once a week now to have a face shave. Your employees are great, the atmosphere is great, the prices are very reasonable and I absolutely love the availability and times open to us with all your location selections. In these current and difficult economic times, I remain hopeful that your business will have continued success within our community. You’ll definitely keep us going back and I will continue to recommend Jude’s to others. – Cindy M. (Wealthy Customer)
Disneyland + Hooter’s + Your favorite barbershop = Jude’s – Kevin M. (Byron Center Customer)

BEST HAIRCUT… BETTER PRICES…. BESTEST CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE – Mike W. (Byron Center Customer)
..What a great organization you have. I am currently a customer at your Byron Center location. I started at the Ivanrest location and on occasion have been to the Plainfield location. The best thing is no matter what location I go to it’s the same great service. You can depend upon Jude’s – Dan M. (Byron Center Customer)
It was my first time at Jude’s and I will not go anywhere else. – Joshua C. (Kentwood Customer)
The barbers were all very friendly! The place is really cool. Loved the customer computer station, and the TV’s. Got a great cut and lots of laughs and some high quality spray gel to go. You have a good thing going at Jude’s. Oh, the restroom was spotless.’ –Rick J. (Fuller Customer)
Area man says Jude’s haircut, “Best decision of life. – Josh D. (Cottonwood Customer)
In today’s economy Jude’s Barbershop makes you feel as if you are the richest man in America. This was my first time at Jude’s. My barber did a great job. My boss at work has always been talking you guys up and saying how much he loves getting his haircut at Jude’s. Just like your commercials, I will be telling ALL OF MY FRIENDS about my first time at Jude’s. Fantastic all the way around!! I feel and look great, if I should say so myself!! – Gregory S. (Fuller Customer)
If you are a guy, and have hair, you gotta try Jude’s. – Ben H. (Zeeland Customer)
An unexpected value in today’s crazy world! Being there for the whole day is the only way it could be any better. – Dan D. (Fuller Customer)
MORE THAN JUST A HAIRCUT! – Jon V. (Kentwood Customer)
I am a customer at your East Grand Rapids location and have been since you opened. Although it’s unfortunate that your complimentary beer policy got forced out by those who wish to protect us from ourselves, I have absolutely enjoyed having you right up the street and think your business model is brilliant. My 9 year old son and I go there for every haircut and he will grow up having fond memories of his Dad taking him there. – Steve B. (Wealthy Customer)
I wouldn’t change anything! I have excellent experiences every time I enter the building to the time I leave. I live in Battle Creek, Michigan and drive over an hour to get to Jude’s! – Michael H. (East Beltline Customer)
All this and a haircut too!? – Mike W. (Kentwood Customer)
I just wanted to tell you that you have the BEST barbershop ever!– Justin B.
Jude’s is a good time. Nice workers. Pleasant customers too all around it makes most that enter happy. Even guys deserved to be pampered sometimes. – Donald P. (Kentwood Customer)
First of all I would like to say how much I admire your business. I had my first cut there a few weeks ago when I couldn’t get into my regular stylist. Your stylist was nice, friendly, and managed to do a great job on my hair. The atmosphere was refreshing as well. It was nice to walk into a place that felt closer to a Hard Rock than a floral smock. - Brandon U.
Jude’s Barbershop… A place you can come to for a great relaxing service. Keep things going the way they are. Every time I come in for a haircut I am greeted with a pretty smile and a warm hello. – Mark M. (Kentwood Customer)
Jude’s haircuts are better than sex! – Stephen (Kentwood Customer)
Solid haircuts, and the head massages are perfect! – Brian H. (Fuller Customer)
I look forward to my next cut from the time I leave the shop!!! – Mike (Ottawa Customer)
It was my first time going to a Jude’s and wanted a Mohawk and the beautiful girl cutting my hair did an awesome job despite being nervous about it. You could tell she didn’t want to screw it up and was taking her time with it so it looked good. It was defiantly a wonderful visit and she did awesome! I highly recommend Jude’s to other people now. Thanks! – Scott (Plainfield Customer)
The experience was great. The employees were extremely friendly and I loved the atmosphere. – Cory C. (Allendale Customer)
I recently visited your Grandville store and was extremely pleased with the service and results of my visit. I have short hair and have always cut my own hair using just an old pair of clippers. I have never had my hair done in a professional barbershop until this visit. I have recommended Jude’s to a lot of my friends and co-workers. It was a great experience and I will be back for my next haircut. – Todd R. (Ivanrest Customer)
I have been getting my haircut and various places in Grand Rapids, but none provided the experience I have at Jude’s. It’s not just a haircut; it is the JUDE’S experience! My friends didn’t believe me until they went there and experienced it themselves. Thank you! – Dien L. (Kentwood Customer)
This place has been the coolest place I have been to get my haircut. I am new to the area from Ohio. The stylist that cut my hair was flippin’ sweet! She had a great conversation, a great smile (very pretty), and cut my hair perfect.’ – Randall (East Beltline Customer)
I was in the area on work and stopped into one of your shops. It was the East Beltline location. I just wanted to say that the shop was great! What an amazing concept. It had everything a guy could ask for. The woman that cut my hair was really friendly and gave me a great haircut. She was very helpful with new ideas and gels to use. I especially enjoyed the shampoo with the hot towel. She and the other girls that were there made the experience welcoming from beginning to end. Because of the great, one on one treatment and friendliness from her it made the experience top notch. I will definitely be stopping back in when I am in town again. Thank you so much. – Gary (East Beltline Customer)
My name is Joe, and I frequent the Jude’s located on East Beltline. I am writing to you today to tell you what you likely know…the staff at that location is great! Deana is my stylist, and always makes sure that my hair looks great and that I'm genuinely appreciated as a customer. When I'm getting my hair cut by Deana, the other girls are sure to join in on our conversations and make sure my experience at Jude’s is a positive one.
On top of all that, I think you have a great concept and philosophy of service. I don't usually buy into the whole "guy place" barber shop idea. I don't care about football or hunting. What you created is a comfortable relaxed atmosphere that fits into normal people’s budgets and I actually look forward to the time when I start to look shaggy and need to come in.
Thank you and I wish you success and many more locations. Let me know when you need a human resources person, I want to have fun at work too! – Joe P. (East Beltline Customer)
I think you have it just right, way to go! My son and I will be back and we will tell our friends about it. I almost fell asleep in the chair, I was so relaxed I had my son drive us home just in case I did fall asleep. – Paul F. (Kentwood Customer)
I went to Jude's Barbershop for the first time today and Ashley did an amazing job. I enjoyed my haircut. Even though it costs more than my usual---to me---it is worth it and I will be back again. Please let Ashley know that I think she was great! The best part was the scalp massage. - Derek (Standale Customer)
I just had the greatest experience getting my haircut! Loved Jude’s, great décor, watched the game and the service was terrific. – Bill L.
I love the setup that you have at Jude’s. Great idea. I only wish that I would have thought of it before you did! – Paul T.
One visit at your store on the Beltline and I was sold. The facility, service, atmosphere and quality of the haircuts were fantastic. I have already told two of my friends about the change and suggested they give your place a try. – Jon R. (East Beltline Customer)
I was totally amazed as I know nothing about your barbershops. All I can say is thank you, thank you and thank you! I’ll be coming back, and I’ve already recommended you to my family and friends. – Jeff M. (Allendale Customer)
Recently I had my haircut at your Comstock Park location on West River Drive and was really impressed by the staff, décor and haircut. – Brock K. (West River Dr Customer)
I feel that my experience at Jude’s Barbershop was among the best I have ever experienced. I got a face shave and neck cleanup and my experience was amazing. I’m already trying to figure out when I can come back. –Justin (Standale Customer)
I love going to the East Grand Rapids Location, it's the only place I ever go now. I tell all my friends about what an awesome time I had there and what a great haircut experience I got. In fact one day last month I walked in and I normally get my hair cut by Chelsea who does an amazing job by the way, and since there were a few people in line before me for her I had to wait. Normally I'm not the type of person who likes to sit around for an hour waiting but I actually enjoyed the wait. That's how awesome your barber shop really is. THANKS! – Bob H. (Wealthy Customer)
I have been going to Jude’s for a year now and I want to say you have a great operation. I have a great experience with every haircut. – Brent G.
Compliments to the owner on a great haircut, service and atmosphere. – Lee R.
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy getting my haircut at Jude's Barbershop and how satisfied I am. I began coming to your establishment after my barber retired - he was an old-time barber that I had been frequenting for about 20 years. He did the neck-shave, talked about fishing and golf, and asked about kids...all that kind of stuff. After he closed his shop in 2004, I was at a loss. I tried many other places, but none could match the experience I had and the service Gordy provided. That was until my wife read the article about your Grand Opening Downtown. I was very excited to see that you were planning to try to recreate that type of experience with which I had grown up and continued to experience well into adulthood. I like the idea that you were taking that "old-time" barbershop and including the modern twists. Then the icing on the cake...good old fashioned Pabst Blue Ribbon! My first visit was the Saturday before Labor Day in 2005...and I haven't had to go to anybody else since. – Steve A. (Ottawa Customer)
I honestly can’t complain, I think the service is great, the attention to not only detail but to me as a person is great. I visited Jude’s in Kentwood and I have been back 3 times now. – David H. (Kentwood Customer)
I think you got it right. I am not sure there is much more you can do to make it better. I was pleasantly surprised with the cost. I will certainly be coming back. The fact that I was not rushed through, even when someone was waiting and closing time was a ½ hour away! – Duke Y. (East Beltline Customer)
Just awesome. – Michael W. (Ivanrest)
Jude’s is well worth it. I’m glad my hair grows fast, I can’t wait to go back!!!– Mark S. (Ivanrest Customer)
Let me tell you about my haircuts: I do not like to go to the barbershop/salon. I usually wait until I cannot stand my hair anymore (about 4-6 months) because I hate it when the stylist asks me "how do you want your hair cut?" because honestly, as long as it looks okay, I could care less. I end up just pulling into the first barbershop I see along the road when I can't stand my hair any longer.
A week ago, that barbershop happened to be Jude's Barbershop on East Beltline. Heather asked me if I wanted a beer, which would have been nice except I had a meeting later that I couldn't smell like beer for, and when she asked me how I wanted my hair cut and I responded "I don't really care, just do something that looks professional" she said "ok" and that was it.
FINALLY someone who understands that I, unlike apparently most people out there, couldn't give a hoot about their hairstyle, as long as it looks presentable. After my haircut, straight blade trim, hair wash and neck massage, I thought "it's about time," meaning I am glad I stumbled into Jude's and next time I get my hair cut, I don't think it will be out of frustration.
I thought I would take the time to write to you and thank you. – Phillip P. (East Beltline)
I went in for the first time not knowing what to expect and it was great. I will be coming back to Jude’s! – Pete J. (Cottonwood Customer)
I have visited 3 different locations now and was thrilled to see the new Kentwood location open. You have a great concept and I have recommended several friends who now are all regulars. – Daniel G. (Kentwood Customer)
You guys hit the nail on the head with this one. – Greg N. (Ivanrest Customer)
Jude’s is a gazillion times better than the competition. Jude’s Barbershop goes to the super bowl every year and they win! – Jacob W. (Standale Customer)
Best haircut experience ever! – Tom S. (Kentwood Customer)
Some of the best customer service I have ever had anywhere. – Zak A.
I find this place to be the best around, nothing like this for the quality and money! – Brian B. (West River Dr Customer)
It was a great time and I REALLY like my haircut. – Patrick D. (Wealthy Customer)
The service was above and beyond any expectation and the haircut was of the greatest quality I could hope for. – Brian B. (Wealthy Customer)
My first Jude’s experience was great! Finally a place I feel comfortable and not rushed for a very reasonable price. – Jim R. (Ivanrest Customer)
I wouldn’t change a thing! I’ve already told people about the great job that the staff at East GR did. – Len O. (Wealthy Customer)
The Jude’s Haircut was fantastic, and the staff was friendly. – Matt (Standale Customer)
Dad was happy and son was happy! – Allen P. (Wealthy Customer)
I just wanted to let you know that I love Jude’s Barbershop! – Rob B. (Wealthy Customer)
Keep everything as it is, the haircut experience was great. Loved the atmosphere. Recommending Jude’s to every guy I know. Thanks! – Brent H.
So I just had the best haircut experience of my life. Jude’s Barbershop has definitely created a regular today! – Anonymous
I’ve been to three different ones and loved them all! – Michael G. (West River Dr. Customer)
Awesome, awesome, oh yeah did I mention it was awesome? – Brian K. (Cottonwood Customer)
The place is amazing, and everything is run with perfect care. – Brian B. (West River Dr. Customer)
I just visited your Grandville shop and loved every minute of it! The best haircut and shave a guy could get. I was very satisfied. Thanks. – Ian W. (Ivanrest Customer)
The Jude’s experience couldn’t have gone any better! It was the greatest haircut of my life! I’m telling my friends about this place! – Dan S. (Wealthy Customer)
The haircut was good. I would expect nothing less from a professional place like Jude’s, and I’ve never been disappointed with the cuts I’ve gotten from your various shops. But the part this young lady did exceptionally well at the customer service aspect of the job. I’ve been in customer service for almost all of my 30+ years of working, both on the front lines, and in more recent years, teaching others to exceed Customer’s Expectations, for companies whose brand name means everything to them, like Coca-Cola and AAA. These companies sell nothing that you couldn’t get a reasonable imitation of much cheaper, so the reputation for service is paramount. What brings customers back, and keeps them loyal, is the service they receive, consistently pleasant and polite. Jude’s is in the same position, building a lasting customer base on name and reputation. Quality service is at least as important as quality hair cutting. Your new employee brought those skills with her. She was cheerful, personable, and very friendly without seeming too familiar, and willing to be playful when I started joking with her. – Tedrick S. (Fuller Customer)
As you are aware, Jude’s Barbershop is new to the Frandor area and I pass it every day at least 4 times daily. Each time, I remarked that I needed to stop in. Today was the day. Not only was the décor super cool, your staff was awesome. I loved the computer check in system, the fact that you had TV’s and, moreover, even though you cater to men, I could get my haircut there as well. Another bonus not to miss, it’s CLEAN. I left BEAMING. Not only will I return for cuts, I called my father who lives in Saginaw and invited him down for a Jude’s haircut, on me! I think my trip there today has resulted in a couple more faithful customers. – Vicki H. (Saginaw Customer)
