Contrary to popular belief, Goodfellas has a great amount of diversity in our clientele, and each and every customer always walks out with a smile of satisfaction with their fresh cut. You'll find the entire human spectrum at Goodfellas from black to white to brown, young and old, and that's a very good thing in the culturally rich and diverse city of Tacoma and University Place. 

The atmosphere inside the shop is very relaxed with good music always in tune, and of course a good conversation always in the mix amongst the individuals inside about different interesting topics. The barber shop is not only a place to get your hair game on point, but also a place where you can connect and converse with people about different things, it a community center of sorts. We set out to create the last true safe house for a man to come and enjoy being a man.  So say what you feel and let the good times roll at your neighborhood barbershop, Goodfellas barbershop!
