We can’t believe the year’s almost over! 2018 is swiftly approaching, and it’s crazy how much has changed since this same time last year.

But all the amazing growth and change that has occurred over the last 365 days was only made possible because of you, our loyal clientele. So, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making 2017 a truly banner year!


New Years is a time when we take stock of the things that matter, by looking back at the moments that counted. This year at Redd’s Barbershop has been filled with great cuts, sharp shaves & legendary events. Let’s take a look back at some of the best moments at Redd’s Barbershop from 2017…

Redd’s Barbershop was able to reward our valued clients with two epic giveaways this past year- both involving our hometown team, the Longhorns. Two lucky winners received tickets to a University of Texas Football home game, plus signed memorabilia, and one winner even got to watch the game with UT legend & NFL veteran Cory Redding! The only thing we love more at Redd’s Barbershop than a great cut, is UT Football! Hook Em Horns!

Redd's Barbershop Austin

In October, during the days between the two weekends of the mega-festival, Austin City Limits, Jack Daniels Whiskey set up an incredible pop-up shop. The space they occupied in downtown Austin was transformed into Jack Daniel’s old Tennessee hometown, with interactive tours, live music, tastings, and food. And, Redd’s Barbershop got to participate in the festivities too! All week our talented barbers were there giving cuts and trims. It was a memorable event and we were so proud to be involved!

2017 was also momentus for Redd’s Barbershop founder, Cory Redding. The NFL star returned to his roots this year, by heading back to school to finish his degree. In the summer, Cory received his degree from the University of Texas, 13 years in the making.

But, he wasn’t done at UT just yet. Later in the year Cory was asked to join ESPN’s Longhorn Network as an official commentator. He graced the screen for every game in 2017, cheering on his fellow Longhorns as they took the field.

Earlier in the year we added a new drink to the list of our complimentary services, fit for any modern gentleman. We started serving Old Fashion Cocktails to help enhance the barbering experience, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive! So, come on down and have a drink on us!

Incase you didn’t notice, the look of the shop has changed quite dramatically. Over the last few months we’ve added new stations to accommodate more appointments, and a whole new batch of barbers. You might have seen some of their friendly faces around the barbershop already.


We feel so blessed to have the opportunity to grow, and are always striving to make our shop the best it can be. 2017 was so much more than we could have ever dreamed it would be, and we are looking forward to what 2018 has in store. In the New Year you can expect more surprises, events, giveaways, and, as always, the most excellent barbering services in town!
