Bullfeathers, A Classic Barbershop in Historic Madison Station
Owner Nancy Covington came up with the concept of Bullfeathers while in Barber school. She was tasked with coming up with her own unique branding for a barbershop as part of her program. The idea for Bullfeathers came when Nancy wanted to incorporate her Grandfather In-law, a World War I veteran, into her branding. She eventually landed on Bullfeathers, which was a common saying from President Theodore Roosevelt around the same era. When Nancy was able to open her own shops in Madison and Huntsville, she took the Bullfeathers concept with her.
Bullfeathers’ emphasis is on customer service and atmosphere. Where many barbershops or salons model themselves off the number of customers they serve, Bullfeathers focuses on a quality experience. The barbers at Bullfeathers take their time with each customer that comes into their shop to meet their needs.
Bullfeathers offers a variety of services you would expect from an old-school barbershop, including beard trims, haircuts, edging, fading, straight razor shaves, as well as shampooing, head, and neck massages. Each haircut includes a hot towel treatment and back-of-neck shave that reduces irritation and relaxes the customers.
Bullfeathers has a unique industrial-era atmosphere that isn’t found in a typical salon or traditional barbershop. The barbershop’s rustic interior is complemented by the alternative and psychedelic rock playing on the radio. Patrons are greeted and offered water, a soft drink, and even a complimentary beer. Bullfeathers is happy to support locally brewed favorites such as Old Black Bear Brewery.
Bullfeathers carries a variety of styling and grooming products as well. Let the expert barbers at Bullfeathers help you pick the right product for your hair and styling needs. Owner Nancy Covington stands by her product and service so strongly, that she offers free Clean Up trims for those in-between haircuts and may have a big event coming up that they need to look their best for. First-time visitors get $5 off, veterans receive a $5 discount as well. Children under the age of 13 also get a discount.
