Awesome time today at The Barber Car for Mack's first professional haircut. Thanks Debbie!
Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community.

These new families are looking for a new EVERYTHING!

Town Hall contacts these new families each week as soon as they move into their new home.

These new families will find new places to eat, work out, wash their car......they need a new Hair Salon, Spa, Auto Repair Shop, Optometrist, Dry Cleaner, Pet Groomer, Day Care Facility, Florist, Nail Salon, get the idea. They are actively seeking new local businesses and creating new purchasing patterns. They will become someone's next new local, loyal customer.

Town Hall will direct them to you before your competition even knows they are here.

Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one business per category, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being featured in our local Welcome Kits.

I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.

Please reply with your availability or call me at your earliest convenience.

For a faster response, or if you prefer, feel free to text me on my cell which is listed in my signature.

We are a traditional barber shop on W 6th Street, Austin! We have a great new location as of Janua


This is at the end of our 4th very busy day in our new shop at 1717 W 6th Street, Bldg 2, Ste 130R!! We are up and running (almost like the well oiled machine we are) thanks to incredibly talented, professional barbers who make relearning their routines look easy and sophisticated, savy, amazing, clients “got the move memo” and have (mostly) shown up like clockwork. Great job everyone!! Thanks!!!

Ps I’ll post a picture next:)


Clients will receive a more detailed email. We are excited by the move to the Good Life's new home!


As 2021 draws to a close, the Good Life is preparing it’s new home at 1717 West 6th Street, Suite R130. We are planning to be there in early 2022. Our amazing client base will receive email notification at least a couple weeks in advance of the move. We sincerely thank you for your loyalty and support!! The Good Life team expresses warm wishes to all for this holiday season!!


As Austin relaxes the mask requirement, we are preparing to do beard trims again!! Starting Monday, May 24, 2021, our website will reflect our new list of services with prices and scheduling options. We thank you all for your support through this challenging time!!


Dear Good Life Client,

Thank you for sticking with us through this challenging time! We continue to be very diligent about sanitation and masking and thank you for doing the same. We also continue to have reduced capacity to ensure there are a limited number of people in the shop at any given time.

We have experienced greatly reduced demand as gents stretch out their haircut intervals, avoid exposure altogether, or get backyard cuts. Each barber’s earning power has been reduced as a result (50 to 60% if all goes perfectly).

That all said, we find it necessary to change our cancellation policy to a minimum four hour window. This will give the barber some chance of filling the spot. We also ask you to consider, on your next visit, paying your barber (tip line) for their time if you for some reason miss an appointment.

Again, we truly appreciate your business and hope we’re all out of the woods soon!



Interesting Covid-19 related video.

It is now clear that for some patients who get through the acute stage of COVID-19, the battle is still far from over. Most will make a full recovery, but for a significant group it is a long and difficult process, with on-going, unpredictable symptoms. 05/06/2020

{LISTEN} Booker and Alex's New Favorite Speakeasy

Way to go Bar Bar!! This weekend, Booker and Alex ventured out to new places. After creating a list of three places to visit, they stumbled across a speakeasy...The Good Life BAR BAR! Ever heard of it?


Bar Bar is open! Bring a friend and stop by for a beer or a glass of wine (or 3). The hours are 3 to 11, Monday - Saturday. You'll probably find Brian Hummel behind the bar (he is our managing partner). He is a great guy and I know you will love him:)


Happy spring to the best client base in the planet! Just thought I would give you a short update...Christy Chavez is on her way to LA. Her husband got transferred and he will soon start work on a team working on LAX. We will sorely miss our Christy girl!!...Jesus Orosco joined our team at SXSW time. He is a super barber and a really nice guy and does a really great job with all hair types and styles! ...Russell Firestone started with us in January. Again a super nice guy and very meticulous barber! ...Of course, I am so greatful to the core team of Bri Bielz, Parker James, Ryan Vidotto, (and me) for holding down the fort so well during the transitions. We have a truly special team. ...One more thing, the BarBar is moving along and we are planning the opening festivities. Will keep you posted:)


WE ARE ON VACATION THE MUSIC WEEK OF SXSW. Please go to to schedule an appointment with us next week. Happy SXSW!!!!


We finished! Top30% of humanity, oh, we do pretty good hair as well. Had a blast,


I apologize for any confusion resulting from our price change. I realized that there were still a couple of places the old price was reflected when services were combined. Hopefully I have found them all and corrected them. If you see something that is not listed correctly, please let me know....Thanks, Debbie
