Opening in March, 2013 with a goal to change the standard of men’s grooming in Portland, Maine; we set out in a mission that quickly cemented in modern barbering. Introducing cleaner cuts, better service, high reliability, consistent scheduling, and straight razor finishes. Something that previously was unfamiliar to Portland natives. 11 years later, we’ve spawned a movement and have inspired dozens of numerous new shops, barber schools, and dozens of fresh barbers all over Maine. With our new location being a turn of the leaf, we’ve set new goals to take things to the next level and look forward to the next segment here in Portland.

Benny hooked it up. I’m on vacation and came in on a whim and lucked out with a slot available. I had a messed up haircut from a few weeks ago and he blended it to perfection. Great skin fade. Highly recommend. Good vibes and great price for the quality of the cut. Will hit him up again next time I’m in town.
My barber was Abz. He was fantastic! Not only did he give me a solid cut, but we got to talking about hip hop/rap. He has pleasant chair side manner and can keep a good conversation.I came from out of state and I am glad I came here! The other customers looked really pleased and happy as well. This place has a good atmosphere!
Hey my name is Chris Landry I was just in there for a hair cut done by the gentleman Abz and let me say, the dude is outstanding! By far the best cut iv had in a while, the way he was able to recommend and accommodate style to my particular profile was just phenomenal I have a receding hairline and beard that grows in patchy I’m not the easiest to cut but he somehow made it look very good he definitely knows what he’s doing and I’m genuinely glad I got to sit in his chair conversation was great what can I say the kids good for business, would highly recommend!
Jason does great design work! Easy to schedule and was a pleasure to work with. Would recommend.
I have had countless cuts with varying styles from Jason H and he crushes it every time! Great convos and 10/10 haircuts. He is one of the best barbers around.
Excellent atmosphere, super chill staff, and most importantly, incredibly high-quality haircuts! Joel, in particular, is the best barber I've ever had; he has created and nurtured my mullet for the last year or so now, and it's been the perfect blend of styles that I'm looking for. Cannot recommend this place enough!
If you want your fade done right, see Jason H. He’s an all around fantastic guy and super talented barber. Jason pays attention to detail and takes pride in his work. I highly recommend.
Momentum is an incredible barbershop. The staff are all very cool and talented. I particularly love Andrzej but all of the staff are great. Cool vibes and good people.

My friend went to Momentum and had Abz. Absolutely amazing lad, charming, entertaining, and extremely talented. Honest to god, he saved my friend and really just transformed him. Amazing people, amazing atmosphere, and super talented barbers!
I’ve been going to momentum for a few years now and always have had a positive experience with all the barbers, but I wanted to give a particular shoutout to Abz today. Professional, conversational, and gave a great cut in only 30 minutes. I would recommend Abz and momentum as a whole to anyone getting a haircut in the Portland area!

Art - I am so happy with the haircut, service and friendly conversation that Art provides. He is very knowledgeable and professional and I enjoy my time in the chair. I highly recommend him and look forward to him growing his business in Portland ME!
Best barbershop in Portland ! Clean , stylish shop with great atmosphere ! Y’all have to book with Joel ! All it took was one appointment and now he’s my go to barber !
Just had a great hair cut with Julian. I usually see Ben or Allie, but they were both booked up. I saw Julian instead. You know when you leave a hair cut appointment and it looks better than you expected? Yeah, that. I explained the cut I wanted and he let me know that he typically specializes in clipper-cuts, but he’d make it happen.I think I was in and out of the chair in 18 minutes and the cut is awesome. I’d recommend this guy to anyone. I’ve only worked with these three barbers, but so far that back corner of this shop’s got it going on.
Great service and haircut! Ben was amazing and made me feel welcome upon my first visit. Not from the area, but the haircut he gave me felt like one I would get back home. Highly recommend Momentum Barbershop and a plus if you can get Ben!!!
Consistently great haircuts best I’ve had in my life I’m 68 the barbers/stylists are great
Been coming here a couple years now. I bring my two sons now 4 and 13. The team is always welcoming and good to us. Our original barber Ryan moved out of state. It was sad to see him go he’s been cutting my youngest since he was 1 giving him really nice skilled cuts. He promised to leave us in good hands and he did! Our new barber Marcel is great, and also gives very skilled cuts. He also got my 4 y/o to graduate from sitting in my lap for his cut to sitting in the chair on his own! I highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for a skilled fresh cut.
Needed a last minute haircut and this place was great. Good music and vibes, the barber was professional, and I was able to get an appt same day. Highly recommend.
I have been going there for years since they were originally on Fore St. Jason runs a good shop and every cutter I've ever had was good. Prices are reasonable and staff are fun.
Had an amazing experience. Ben did my hair, and he did a fantastic job. This is my first experience at a barber shop altogether, and I definitely will be back.
The barber did a very good job with my haircut. He was very meticulous and has attention to details. Booking for an appointment online was quick and easy too.I just hope the management will improve on regularly cleaning all the cut hair on the floor after each haircut. Overall, it was a great experience!
Location and shop are great. I was able to get in same day for cut and beard trim with Joel. Feel like a million bucks. Would highly recommend Joel for hair cut and or beard trim. He is truely an asset for Momentum.
Joel is awesome! My man looks incredible after his visit! Love this guy
Knowledgeable, talented barbers. I typically dislike talking during my cut, but these guys are alright.
Great experience there today! While I’m not normally one to review on Google, Jason H deserves recognition! Even though I was his last client of the day, instead of trying to get me out the door, he took his time and went above and beyond to fix the bad experience I had at a previous barber shop. He gave me one of the best cuts I have had in years! He also lined up the beard nicely as well. Highly recommend Jason H and Momentum!
Greatest barbershop in the state of Maine. Not like there’s a barbershop competition to verify this but, ….I approve. We all approve.
Jay & the team are the first place i bring any of the buys from the sober house. if you want to feel at home while your confidence is clipped into shape, this is the place.
I made a blind appointment with Allie. She did a great job cutting my hair and was very personable. I will be going back.
Sophia listens well and cut my hair quickly and precisely and she was friendly and engaging during my time in her chair. I highly recommend her.
Ask for Jason H. Took his time and did a fantastic job.
The service is always great, The Haircuts are always spot on! Great place for an awesome haircut!
Ive been twice now and i will be going back again and again.professional, clean and fun.Great atmosphere. Highly recommended by me.
I trimmed my own beard for years after one visit here I will always leave it to their professional hands.
Great place with a great vibe. Katy and Ben are amazing.
This place is packed with talent. The owner, Jason, is a legend. By far the best barber I've ever had, this place is a must-visit.
Great spot and atmosphere, wonderful music (get there early for 70’s Metal), excellent customer service. Dillon does great work and has a wonderful and professional personality, worth my trip up from Philly each time I’m in town.
First time at the barbershop was a great experience. Ben did an stellar job with my haircut and is also just a great guy. Jason was also very welcoming. Recommend and will be back!
I have been going for a while now, normally get cut by Jay. Always a clean cut/trim. Welcoming atmosphere and top of the line products & service. 10/10 would recommend.
Great customer service. Great place. Great cut! Clean me up real nice.Thank you. I appreciate it.
