Markdaniel Barbershop: Keeping Haircuts, Shaves + Beards Looking Sharp in Hoboken + Jersey City

Written by:

Sometimes less is more and that’s definitely the case at Markdaniel Barbershop where they offer just 3 things: haircuts, shaves, and beards. Each stylist excels in those three things so every customer can rest assured they are getting a high-quality service. As businesses continue to open back up, Markdaniel Barbershop is here to shape up any pandemic-induced at-home haircuts at their new location in Jersey City at 124 Brunswick Street. Mark D. LoBiondo opened the Hoboken location in 2015 and currently runs operations with Gabriela Ham. Keep reading to learn more about the shop, the team, and the exclusive offer for Hoboken Girl readers.

In addition to the classic three: haircut, shave, and beard trim, Markdaniel Barbershop also sells hair products, face and body washes, and candles.

“We also offer complimentary whiskey and espresso to our clients. We lean on the adult-friendly side but are very accommodating to kids and adults of all ages,” Mark told Hoboken Girl. “We offer online booking and contactless checkout, so you can book your appointment, pay, and tip — all before you arrive.”

In addition to running a smooth ship, there are a couple of special moments that Mark says are the best part of running his business. “When I’m cutting hair and the client in the chair next to me is telling his barber how much he loves his haircut and/or the barbershop and he has no idea that I’m the owner right next to him. Also the feeling you get when you look back at the team you’ve built this far and knowing it just works.”

As he looks to the future he hopes to maintain the consistency and quality they have built in Hoboken, grow the Jersey City shop, and potentially and selectively expand.

The Markdaniel Difference

Hudson County is home to countless barbershops full of skilled barbers but a few things set Markdaniel Barbershop apart from the rest. 

“For one the quality of our barbers — I am very selective with the barbers we hire and retain. We also do not have a very high turnover rate amongst staff, something you won’t find often in the hair industry, that experience makes us different,” Mark told Hoboken Girl

“The barbers only cut hair, they aren’t responsible for anything else so all of their attention and focus is on the entire haircut. I also believe we are well known for being good at beards both short and long. Our barbers excel in all hair types and lengths. We are versatile with clippers as well as all scissor men’s haircuts.”

In addition to getting a high-quality haircut, shave, or beard trim, clients at Markdaniel Barbershop can expect an easy booking process {online} that allows you to choose a specific barber. On top of that, you can opt into text and email reminders so you’ll never miss an appointment.

Each Client Gets the Special Treatment

Both locations are staffed with a full-time manager, from open to close. There is always someone there to answer the phone, grab you a beverage, hang your jacket, and take payment.

“We blow-dry and style every haircut, you’ll never walk out with wet hair,” mentioned Mark. “We have a lot of customers who come only for their beard. We treat every beard as a separate service from a haircut. We perform a hot towel shave for every beard trim, we use hot towels and hot lather for every haircut.”

For the loyal customer, Markdaniel Barbershop offers a complimentary neck clean-up in-between haircuts. Mark prides himself on running a transparent business, with the goal of making sure everyone feels comfortable when they walk in, whether or not they are getting a haircut, including pups! Plenty of four-legged friends pop in just for a treat.
