Cardinal Tribe of Definition Barbershop

My clients know me as Cardinal Tribe, and I work at Definition Barbershop in Bucktown, where our barbers have a reputation for offering great cuts, a full list of services, and down to earth conversations.

    The experience that I have getting cut by this barber is amazing! Not only is the shops vibe great but Jahmal takes a great deal of time to master the look you're going for!!! He's very thorough, patient, and engaging while cutting your hair. The professionalism is amazing and for that alone is why I continue to come back along with resulting in being booked a great deal as Chicago model with short hair! Chicago enjoys my cut and I have to thank Cardinal Tribe for that.

    Jahmal is the man! He has a god given natural talent on giving the freshest cuts EVER! What makes Cardinal Tribe so great is that he takes his time and cares about the end result like no one else I have ever experienced. I highly recommend him to anyone, but this guy is gifted! All the guys in Definition are great / Nelly to Louis! If you care about your hair, Definition is the place to go! These fellas know what to do!

    I'm not a lengthy writer when it comes to reviews. The cut was great. Nice atmosphere in the barbershop. Jahmal gave great attention to details. Nice conversation. Price was right, and I came out looking fresh.
