Jon Amyx began Downtown Barber in early 1987. It started as a one chair business and has grown substantially over the years. In 1999 Jons son Jay Amyx joined forces with him and has brought a new age and fresh ideas to the shop. Two other family members (Rachel and Tracy) joined the team and with over a decade of experience each they dominate their profession. We are a classic barbershop with a new age look. Our wall is adorned with memorabilia from all our local sports teams to keep your eyes and minds busy while you wait. With 10 full time barbers on hand we have something for everyone. Between great conversation and even better haircuts we exceed expectation. We have been a staple in Downtown Lawrence for years and will continue to serve the community we love.
Jon is a 3rd generation Barber. With many years under his belt he has seen hairstyles change many times over the years since he began cutting hair in 1975. He opened Downtown Barber in 1987 and has never looked back since. His ability to talk to people is the first thing you will notice about him. He is never at a loss for words, and his unforgettable sayings as you exit the shop means you leave not only with a great haircut but a smile on your face.
Jay is a 4th generation Barber and son of Jon aka. “The Old Man”. With over 23 years of experience he brings an attention to detail that customers love. He is a jack of all trades guy in the industry and shows that with every service provided. If he can’t do it then you don’t need it. He loves what he does and the people he does it for.
Rachel, also a 4th generation Barber is a huge part of why we are so strong as a business. She is arguably the shops best asset. She is an absolute force and staple of our shop. If it needs done, she can do it. She got her start over 15 years ago and she will continue to give great cuts as the years continue. If you want it done right she is your girl.
Megan is the artist of the group. Multitalented in the fact she can draw, paint, put a design in your hair and give you one hell of a haircut to boot. She has definitely broken out her shell and is quickly becoming one of the unforgettable faces of the shop. Her detail is strong and so are her abilities to provide you with exactly what you need. . Come check her out, you will not be disappointed.
Elizabeth Is our local area girl. She has been in the game for awhile and can kill a haircut. She always has a conversation ready to talk to you about. She is outspoken and strong willed, but she can always give you exactly what you ask for. She is a Lawrence girl now, however if you want to get a rise out of her, feel free to tease her about growing up in Topeka.
Amy is definitely our friendlist barber. She always has a smile on her face and will absolutely talk your ear off. She is always positive and happy Which is a great thing to be around daily. She will make you feel right at home and give you a great haircut to match. Her ability to take her time and give the customer exactly what they want is admirable.
If you haven’t met him yet, then you are in for an experience. Toad is not a Barber, but he is a massive part of the barbershop. He has a hot mouth and will flip you off at the drop of a hat if you see him on his moped. Toad runs errands for us all day and is absolutely hell on wheels. Call him ”Tim or buddy” and you will absolutely get the Toad hello aka “the bird”
Stacy is a veteran Barber who has come to join us here. She has been around town for many years and has plenty of loyal followers. She can not only cut a great head of hair she is one hell of a baker as well. That’s right boys she can cut and cook. It doesn’t help our waistlines any but she will take even better care of her customers with good quality haircuts and styles.
Melissa is our newest member of the shop. Don’t be fooled by her being new because she def packs a punch. She is a talker, singer and by far our best dressed of the bunch.

Jess is our motorcycle girl. She has cut hair from coast to coast and now we have the privilege of having her here providing dynamite cuts and services to all of you. When she isn’t ripping up the streets or racing toad on her bike, she is rocking killer skills at the shop. Come see for yourself.
Cassie is our rebel. You can usually catch up with her on the weekends. She is a great addition to the barbershop family and always gives the clients exactly what they want. She speaks her mind and might even have more tattoos than Jay, if that’s possible. Come check her out.
