Wicked Rascal Barbershop & Shave Parlor coming to Downtown Urbana

I was walking to Flying Machine Coffee in Downtown Urbana a few days ago, and noticed this signage on a door about a half block down (next to Siam Terrace). Snapped a photo, and looked it up — Wicked Rascal is a barber shop and shaving parlor, which has locations in St. Joe and Mahomet. It looks as though they will be opening up a new location in Downtown Urbana.

While there’s no proper announce I can find, it looks like this is a sure bet if the decals are on the doors. I’ve reached out to them for details and will update when we get something.

Here’s an update with a statement about the opening:

“I plan to open the Urbana location within a couple months. All services offered will be the same as the other two locations. You can check out the specifics at

So there you have it.

Here’s a bit more about them:

Wicked Rascal Barbershop & Shave Parlor is a vintage inspired 1920s era full service barbershop, specializing in short men’s hairstyles.

The barbershop offers a full range of shaving services from razor fades, line ups and neck shaves to full old school face shaves.  Haircut services include everything from Burrs/Buzz, Crews, Flat Tops, Classic/Traditional styles to Bald Fades, Hard Parts, Slick Backs, Undercuts and Pompadours.

Kick back, relax and enjoy the conversations and our vintage music selection, combining the best of Chicago, Mississippi Delta and Bayou Blues and many Big Band Swing and Jazz pieces from Decca recordings of the 20s and 30s.

Help yourself to a handful of roasted shelled peanuts while you wait or try a cup of our custom blended coffee provided by Geschenk Coffee & Tea Haus.

Wicked Rascal Barbershop opened its first location in downtown St. Joseph, IL and offers world-class cuts and shaves. We are known for our old-school barber shop vibe and classic shave and cut styling. Our staff went through extensive training and has mastered virtually every style. Whether you want a vintage, classic, or modern look, we’re the barber shop for you!
