The philosophy “How you do anything is how you do everything” is written to greet you when walking through the bold red doors of The Dover Honing Co. And to put it simply, anything they do grooming-wise is everything you need when it comes to this downtown staple.

When its time to hit the chair, it’s clear these barbers are highly trained with their arsenal of blades.

The interior of this communal barbershop is as bold and clean as the cut you’ve come pursuing — shiny black-and-white-tiled floors meet vintage barber chairs in pristine condition, all surrounded by taxidermy scenes of foxes and exotic birds. This distinctive space honors the ongoing traditions of grooming for a modern man. It’s a place to disappear for as long as you need to refresh yourself. Built upon the principles of classic barbershops from a century before, Dover provides a social atmosphere to relax and share stories of your travels while building new relationships. When its time to hit the chair, it’s clear these barbers are highly trained with their arsenal of blades. Classic services include haircuts, beard trims, and hot-towel shaves. When heading out with your renewed look, stop by the counter to check out the selection of essentials to keep your hair in check.

Just like getting a revitalized new look for your hair and face, it’s also vital to rejuvenate the mind, body, and soul. The ancient art of grooming is a practice to help a man do this very thing. The Dover Honing Co. assists in keeping that tradition intact, one cut at a time.


As they say: “How you do anything, is how you do everything”  – so, treat your personal style like that, and stay groomed
