The Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street U.S.A.

Sit back in the old time barber's chair and get ready for a good old-fashioned haircut at Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom. Many Disney fans know that the Harmony Barber shop on Main Street USA is a great place to take your kids for their "first haircut," what fewer know is that there are plenty of services available for adults as well. If you're looking for a new, unique Walt Disney World experience, why not add a trip to the Harmony Barber Shop to your list?

A step into this traditional storefront transports you back in time, deep burgundy shelves are lined with bottles of vintage hair tonics and talcum powders. "Guests are always surprised to find there's a real barbershop here," says Mary Volley, who works at Harmony Barber Shop. "They think it's a display and take pictures, but once they see it they can't get away... they end up wanting a haircut."

Guests may be amazed to discover that some of the antiques in Harmony Barber Shop are still in service. A turn-of-the-century Western Electric phone box is still used to make phone calls. Also of note is the cash register the barbers use to ring up their sales. It dates from 1912.

If you're lucky you'll even get to hear the legendary Dapper Dans barbershop quartet as they stroll by daily, singing melodious tunes in perfect harmony and entertaining guests with their humorous banter.

Although small and quaint, Harmony Barber Shop performs between 350 and 400 services a week. An adult haircut costs about $19, and child's cut (12 and under) is $15. There's even a fun "My First Haircut" package that comes with Mickey Ears and a special certificate for $19. Menu options at Harmony tend to change up now and again with new fun new seasonal stylings and pops of pixie dust.

There are a couple of things that Disney wants you to know before you go:

  • Water may be sprayed on hair if needed during styling, but no shampooing occurs. Please arrive with clean, dry hair.
  • Guests under 17 years of age must be accompanied by an adult (18 years of age or older).
  • A $10 charge will apply for no-shows or cancellations within one day of your reservation. Though reservations are recommended and can be made by calling (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529, walk-ins are welcome.

The Harmony Barber Shop is located near the Emporium gift shop with a signature candy-striped pole outside. The turn of the century ambiance treats guests of all ages to a simpler time, when getting a haircut was a real treat. So stop by the Barber shop and spruce up for your vacation photos while adding something fun to your next trip!

Thanks so much to Disney Food Blog for use of their fun Dapper Dans Video. Do you have great memories of the Harmony Barber shop? I would love to hear about them! Leave a comment and let me know how it was.

The Harmony Barber Shop is one of my family's Disney traditions. Everytime we go to the Magic Kingdom, as a tribute to my father who was a barber, we take a picture by the pole. I must have hundreds of photos there. My favorite photo is one I have of my father in front of the shop when it was located on the side street which no longer exists on the left side of Main Street. The street was removed to accomodate a larger Emporium in the 90's. Definitely recommend getting a haircut there at least once.

Robin, I've seen and heard about a lot of great kids cuts coming out of there. I don't really have much experience with adults there. Until I went looking for the information, I didn't even know that they served adults too!

My daughter has gotten her hair cut there twice. (including pixie dust of course!) Her last time was her 12th birthday last fall. Both times we just did a walk up and had maybe a 20 min wait? While we were there waiting several people (adults included) would come in and just get hair sprayed and dusted. If I remember correctly (???) that was $5.

The Barber shop is a great deal! When the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique has packages starting at $50, the barber shops offers a haircut and a generous dusting of pirate dust or pixie dust for $5. We (10 of us) came about a 1/2 hour before closing, had 4 haircuts and styles done, and ALL of us got a generous dusting. Fun and finally something of a deal at WDW. We came back for a dusting before our dinner at the castle a few days later and same great deal!

Does anyone know if men can get an old fashion shave? I would treat my husband.

OMG, I want. Kristen, next time we get there, make me a reservation. Too bad they probably don't do shaves, though, that would be completely over-the-top awesome.

Sharon & Geordon - They do not do full shaves here. However, I the last time that I was in there they had a beard/mustache trim on the menu. What's at offered changes sometimes, and it isn't currently listed on the WDW website - however that doesn't mean that they won't do it if you ask in the shop.

My oldest son got his 1st haircut there in 2009! We went straight there after we got through the gates, and he was the first one in. Here's the video:
