voted best barber in morgantown in 2021
When Andrew Blaney’s grandfather cut his hair as a kid, Blaney would always adjust the cuts to make them more fresh. “He was a barber, but I had to add my little touch,” he says. “He told me, if you can cut your own hair, you can cut anybody’s hair, so I thought maybe I should try it.” Blaney opened Diamond Cuts in Star City in 2017. As you might guess, Diamond Cuts offers the latest in hair and beard styles, with attention to precise lines. But it isn’t just a sharp cut that made Diamond Cuts Morgantown’s favorite for the first time this year, Blaney says—it’s a customer-centric business model. The shop maintains an active website and social media presence that shows the shop’s current styles and lets the barbers’ personalities shine through. And booking through the app Booksy, with a commitment to running on time, is a convenience and a courtesy clients appreciate. Diamond Cuts recently grew to five barbers, and Blaney hints at bigger changes to come—think men’s spa.
