We are an intentionally inclusive space, welcoming persons of all genders, sexualities, races, and faiths. You can count on THORPS as a safe space to express yourself.

THORPS was founded in 2008 in the Schenk’s Corners area of the Atwood neighborhood on Madison’s east side. We are conceived as a community-minded business, specializing in haircuts and color services for all genders.

Inspired by the relaxed, welcoming atmosphere of traditional neighborhood barber shops, our approach to customer service is direct, educational, and attentive but not overbearing.

Our team comes from a well-rounded history and our staff has a variety of specialties. While each of us has a unique approach, together we accommodate our customers’ needs for achieving both traditional and experimental hairstyles.

If you’re in the neighborhood, feel free to stop by and say, “Hello!” We look forward to seeing you soon.
