The Den offers men's haircuts and foil shaves in a relaxed atmosphere where old school barbering merges with sports memorabilia and good friends. Whether looking for a buzz, high and tight, taper or your son's first haircut, you'll find that, and more, at The Barber Den!
In 1968, a small-town South Dakota boy went to work at Broadridge Barbers in Littleton, Colorado. Four years later, Dennis Walters took over ownership of the shop, bringing on board his young brother-in-law Doug MacLean. When the location moved to the north side of the shopping center, the new name - The Barber Den - was coined, and so its reputation began as a comfortable place for men to gather for a haircut, some conversation and an occasional joke or two.
Dennis semi-retired in 2008 and sold the shop to Doug. Doug added a third chair and brought in several other barbers, including his oldest son, Phil. In 2018, 50 years after his Uncle Denny began working there, Phil became the new owner! This family business is still going strong, and the barbers work hard to put out a good cut while making you feel like a part of the family.
On a particularly busy day at the shop, a barber takes a much-needed break and heads to the back to grab something to eat. About that time, in walk several customers. “I’ll be out in a sec!” the barber calls out, washing down the last of a meatball sub with the morning’s cold coffee remnants. Unfortunately, he didn’t notice the large dribble of marinara that ran from his chin to his white smock. “Just grabbing a bite between customers,” he said. “Who’s next?”
A barber runs into a customer in a restaurant one day, but for the life of him, he can’t remember his name. So instead, he uses his standard greeting. “Hey, Man, looks like you need to come by the shop soon. Getting a little scraggly there.” “That’s funny,” replied the customer, “you just cut my hair last week.” Scrambling to come up with a response to that, the barber quipped, “Well, I must have been asleep that day. Stop in and I’ll shape it up for free!”
