Dapper Dan's Hair Cuts

Trade in that scruffy appearance!

Freshen yourself up for another jolly day on Main Street with a trim and a shave in the relaxing hideaway of Dapper Dan's Hair Cuts, a classic 1900s barber shop!

How many theme parks can offer you an early 20th Century-style shave and hair cut during your day out? On Main Street, U.S.A., a living and breathing slice of small-town America in the booming early 1900s, it's all part of the show. Smiles and neatly-trimmed hair cuts are all the rage!

Dapper Dan's Hair Cuts

Dapper Dan's Hair Cuts offers shaves and hair cuts on most days each week — ask at the barber shop itself or at City Hall for further imformation or to book. You'll enjoy personal treatment and a moment of pure relaxation amidst the hustle and bustle on the busy streets outside — not to mention plenty of time to take in the brilliant details and hidden touches filling every inch of the dark wooden walls.

The shop dates from a time when men and women would frequent quite different places for their beauty needs. Very much a "man's" environment, Dapper Dan's is adorned with photographs of boxers and baseball players, offers men's magazines such as Police Gazette to its customers and has a charming collection of authentic turn-of-the-century shaving mugs.

  • Disneyland Paris and Magic Kingdom in Florida are the only two Disney parks to feature a barber shop. In Florida, the shop has a much simpler, brighter interior and exterior design and is known as Harmony Barber Shop. This was also the original name of the shop in Paris, as listed in early guide maps and guidebooks, before it officially changed to Dapper Dan's Hair Cuts a few years after opening.
  • The shop was originally accompanied by its own barbershop quartet, known as the Main Street Quartet, who were one of the most important opening day "streetmosphere" acts, performing songs around Main Street from 1992 until 1995. The shop itself is actually named after the original Dapper Dans, a quartet which has performed (with various performers) at Disneyland in California since 1959 and which shares its name with two other Dapper Dan quartets at Walt Disney World in Florida (since 1971) and Hong Kong Disneyland (since 2005).
  • Walt Disney and his early Imagineers wanted Main Street, U.S.A. to be an optimistic and lively introduction to their Disneyland — a land not too far from reality, yet still a perfect bridge to the fantasy which lies beyond. Realism and pure joy were the key, and the American tradition of Barbershop harmony quartets seemed a perfect way to bring that to life. In 1957, Disneyland's head of entertainment, Tommy Walker, made a call to park talent supervisor Chuck Corson requesting a barbershop quartet for Main Street. Chuck called upon old friends from his previous work as Stage Manager for the Fred Waring Chorale and the original Dapper Dans were found - John Borneman (tenor), Roger Axworthy (lead), T.J. Marker (bass) and Ted Nichols (baritone). It was this original quartet who established "the Dapper Dans tradition" over their many years at Disneyland, a tradition which has continued right up to today with countless new stars and talented singers over the years of entertainment. They regularly perform on their unique, custom 4-seater Schwinn bicycle specially ordered for the group by Walt Disney in 1962. A reproduction of this bicycle can be seen in Paris near the Kitty Hawn Bicycle Shop façade opposite Discovery Arcade.
