    I usually go to Capelli's in SLU and go to my boy Christian for the best haircut I've had in Seattle. However, I recently moved to Capitol Hill after a brief stint in SLU, Belltown, and NYC. I tried coming here during my last stint in Capitol Hill in 2016 and was not impressed. But I figured it was a new year, everyone deserves a second chance, and thought this place is down the hill from me, a 5 minute walk away, and thought I'd give it another chance.I know my hair very well and know exactly what I want, and the barber lingo to describe it; but that doesn't stop some barbers from going on auto-pilot and messing everything up or trying to shoehorn a white guy's haircut onto my thicc mane. So when I went to Naomi, I described things very well, and she ended up doing things better than I could have imagined.I asked for a tapered haircut, tapered down to a 1, not disconnected, natural nape, and long enough up top to slick back, and that's exactly what she gave me. I might have to stay loyal to my boy Christian who's been cutting my hair for a long time, but I will have zero hesitations coming back to Acme when Christian's not available and I need a touch up, and coming back to Naomi, for giving me a haircut that will make me look like a background character from Mad Men in my navy suit when I'm doing my interviews. I've met almost zero barbers in Seattle that can tame my thick hair but Naomi joins this exclusive club. It was tapered perfectly, finished with the great products that Acme carries, in this case Imperial Classic Pomade, which smells pretty good and has a stronger hold than Reuzel, Layrite, and Baxter of California, but still a balanced, not too greasy, shine.

    Loved the haircut. One note of improvement...their iPad register has preset tip amounts starting at 25% minimum....really? Awkward to manually put in 20% and feel guilty about that .

    Totally awesome experience on my first visit.  I was greeted by two barbers, one with a smile.  I was asked what my needs were and instructed what to do.  When my appointment time came, I was still confused about the procedure, so I asked a young tall blond hair barber what was the procedure.  He calmly explained it to me with a generous smile. While waiting a young Hispanic gentle man said a kind compliment to me while passing by me.  I love this place.  The staff is so kind and helpful to their customers, NO drama or attitude.  All the staff their customers where SMILING!  I can assume they love their jobs, life and their customers.  Alyssa McCowan gave me an excellent haircut.  She's great at listening to my haircut needs and always goes beyond the call of duty to ensure you are happy with her cuts.  Allyssa McCowan has a contagious positive energy, I always appreciate what she gives to her customers.  Without hesitation and with full enthusiasm I would TELL people to go to Allyssa McCowan at ACME to get an awesome cut with incredible customer service, just like the iconic Nordstrom's clothing store.  Thanks Alyssa McCowan and all the ACME staff for making my first visit an incredibly enjoyable experience.

    Went in for a pretty big cut...my hair was about 9 inches long and I cut it to donate. Mo was my barber, very friendly/professional and knew exactly what I was lookin' for. Will be back again.
