I should have posted this feedback sooner as I have been going to this barbershop for more than 3 years. Without question, this is the best barbershop I have ever used. I primarily work with George, who is excellent and professional, but all of the barbers here are great at their craft so you can’t miss by using any of them. While the haircutting prowess is the primary reason I go to this barbershop, the things that keep me coming back are the welcoming attitudes and professionalism the entire shop displays...
Professional place to take the whole family. Pre booked appointments are the best way to go. I typically book my 2 sons with me as well and we all get cut at once with a different barber each to save time. Good family experience. Highly recommend.
I go to Josh, he’s one of the barbers over at mgx. I’m always a satisfied customer, every barber there is cleanly and friendly. Definitely worth checking out when you need a cut, just make sure to schedule ahead of time cause walkins aren’t always available since they get booked out.
Great place to get a cut and shoot the breeze. My son loves coming here. The barbers are one in a million and they do great work.
Went to MGX because our regular barber couldn’t get me in and I needed a cut badly. He was able to squeeze me in and did a great job. Shop was clean and the people were friendly and my fade was done just the way I like it. My mother in law said it was the best haircut she’s seen me with. Will most def be back
Found this place online, then looked up some of the barbers on IG. Decided to get cut by josh and haven’t been anywhere else since. The shop vibe has been inviting, professional, and satisfying each time. Customer service is still important out here, now more than ever, and they have had it each visit.
It's a very good place. Both my boys got a wonderful haircut from here. We had been searching for a good barber shop. And I think our search is over. We loved the work that George and the lady at the shop did for our boys. Very welcoming and professional people.
Josh is the man. Make an appt and the process is seamless. Seemed like all the barbers had regulars and knew exactly what they are doing.
Was recently looking for a new barber shop in the Bay Area and found MGX. I booked my first cut with Eazy and it was a pleasant experience. Eazy was friendly and on time. Eazy gave me a great haircut that gave me a total confidence boost! The barbershop was clean and followed Covid protocol. I recommend this barbershop to any one and everyone. Definitely will be coming back for everytime I need a haircut.
Stellar haircut, with extra time taken to ensure the fade came out just right. Everyone in the shop was getting a fade — clearly this barbershop’s specialty.
Love the shop nice and clean went a few ago , spoke to the owner today after a little confusion on my part about the appointment schedule and he was very friendly and responded immediately. Very good service some of the best I have ever seen.
Have you been looking for a barbershop in Hayward that provides a wide range of men’s haircuts? We have you covered whether you like to wear the same haircut all the time or tend to try new styles! MGX Barbers works with you to achieve your desired haircut. We do classic cuts and newer styles such as Fades, Tapers, Slick Backs, Under cuts, Mullets or any combination that you can think of!
We offer the same haircuts for boys as young as 3 that we do for adults. Book your sons haircut at the same time as yours or bring him when it’s best for you. For younger kids we recommend to schedule around nap times so they aren’t cranky.
Need to tame an unruly beard or just looking for a place to keep yours sharp and neat? Come by MGX Barbers and let us line it up for you.

Yes. It's cash only for the time being.
Each barber at MGX is self employed and can choose how much to charge and when they work. Some charge more depending on years in the industry and demand. However we do display minimum prices online and in the shop. Each barber has their own booking link with their prices displayed.
There's free street in front of the shop and around the corner just off main street. There is also a free public parking lot with plenty of parking directly across the street from the shop that can be accessed from either Mission Blvd or Main st.
We recommend calling ahead for walk in availability. Appointments are prioritized and our services take about 45-60 minutes to complete which means that if the barber has 2 clients ahead of you then there will be a 2 hour wait. This also means that we don't have much time if any to squeeze anyone in.
The easiest way to schedule an appointment is to click on the book now button on our home page or click the book now button on one of the barbers team pictures. The advantage of using online booking is that you can schedule at anytime and manage your own appointment. The next best way is to call the shop and request an appointment.
Go to busystyle.com and login with your email and password that you created when you booked the appointment. Once you login click on it and you will see options to reschedule, cancel. You can also call the shop and speak to the barber you are scheduled with and let him/her know that you can't make it. If your barber isn't there you can leave a message with whoever answers the phone.
It's 12 hours to cancel or reschedule prior to your appointment and the fee is the total amount of the scheduled service. You can call to cancel or go online if you booked it through our online booking service.
It's hard to say. Sometimes there's no wait and sometimes it can be hours. We do recommend calling in advance.

We recommend waiting until about age 3 or 4. We find that children are more comfortable in a barbershop at this age. We use very sharp tools to achieve precise cuts and young children tend to move suddenly so for that reason we advise to wait until they are a bit older. But if you do decide to bring a younger child in then we would recommend a style that doesn't require the use of zero blades or razors.
Basic cuts are typically done with clippers and are more on the buzz cut end and completed within about 30 minutes Specialty cuts consist of a combination of clippers and scissors (although some Specialty Cuts can be done with clippers only). They are usually trending styles such as Undercuts, Combovers, Crops and Slickbacks. Specialty cuts take about 45 minutes to complete
You can join the waitlist on our appointment app. If anyone cancels you will receive a notification right away and you can snag the slot. Or you can try anyone of the other barbers in the shop. You may have seen one of them cutting a similar style as the one that you have. Don't worry we don't get mad if you sit in another chair! In fact don't be surprised if your usual barber comes by during your appointment to give your new back up barber pointers on how to achieve your usual cut.
