“My husband and I actually both get our haircut at Jack Knife and couldn’t be more excited to have found it! The vibe in the shop is like no other. The first time we went in, the Fallout playlist was playing, and we knew it was the perfect place! [I] definitely recommend it!” – Jackie H.

Not Your Average Barber Shop

We wanted to learn a little more about Jack Knife Barbershop and their outstanding online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with the owner, Dylan Abbott.

The first question we had for Dylan was what is it that sets Jack Knife Barbershop apart from their competition in Arkansas. Dylan told us that he moved from California and brought the California vibe with him:

“In Arkansas, we are very rare in our store. Our store is decorated like nothing down here, and every day, we try to have a different genre of music going; we try to keep things fun.”

Dylan went on to tell us that he recently welcomed four new guys onto his team and that, as a new barbershop, it’s not always easy to find someone to take a chance on them. But through it all, their goal is to help their clients get cleaned up.

Building Success by Treating Customers Like Family

Dylan attributes Jack Knife Barbershop’s strong online reputation to their commitment to treating their customers like it’s their first time in the shop every time, which to them, means treating customers like family. Dylan told us that they’ve only been open for a little more than a year, and he’s very excited about the reviews they’ve received.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Jack Knife Barbershop spreads the word about who they are and what they do by posting haircuts and products on Instagram and Facebook.

As the owner of an award-winning business, Dylan clearly knows a thing or two about growing a business and building an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there:

“Be as humble as you can, and love what you do — it’s alright to be cocky, but don’t let that control you. Remember where you came from.”


Congratulations to the team at Jack Knife Barbershop for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Dylan, for taking the time to speak with us!
