Darth Vader Protocols

As the order in our community, we invite you to take a page out of Darth Vader's book and fight this challenge together.


Vader wore one and looked cool. We’re gonna wear one. You need to wear one, too, during your services. We’ll give you a disposable one if you need it.


A fresh, sanitized Vader black cape will be draped around you during your services.


Barbers and stylists may choose to wear gloves during your visit . . . but doubtful they’ll pose with a power fist like Vader. You’re encouraged to use hand sanitizer. No hands will be lost.


Vader was triumphant at being both socially and emotionally distant. (Remember his distant “neck hugs?”) Let’s skip the handshakes and go with a head nod for a greeting. These are new social distancing procedures to minimize occupancy and interactions:

  • Walk-ins are welcome when we can slide you into an open slot. (Look for the glowing “No Wait” sign.) Sometimes we can’t squeeze everyone in on the same day, but give us a call at (614) 698-0085 to learn about same-day services or the next availability. If we’re busy and can’t grab the phone when it rings, leave your name and number, and we will always call you back. To view up-to-date availability and to guarantee your reservation, schedule online at During this time, some services may not be available.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, stay in your vehicle, ring us at (614) 698-0085 and leave a message to let us know you are in the parking lot.  We’ll call you back when we’re ready for you.
  • Occupied work stations will be in excess of six feet – about the length of two light sabers – from other occupied work stations. Parents must sit in the lobby during a child’s service while maintaining social distancing and wearing a mask. Parents may not be on the cutting floor.


Even Lord Vader followed the orders of the Emperor. We hope the guidelines that we follow bring order back to the galaxy. We have always been vigilant in our sanitation procedures, utilizing medical-grade cleaning products on work stations, equipment, high-traffic surfaces, etc. After the initial sanitation process has been completed, you will be called on your cell phone and can make your way into the shop to review the health questionnaire for symptoms before your service. If you’re not feeling 100 percent before an appointment, please call and let us help you reschedule. Additionally, each Redline team member will complete a COVID-19 assessment and temperature check prior to the start of each shift.


Whether you have let your hair and beard grow like Chewbacca, hid it like Vader or pulled it back like Qui Gon, our unrivaled barbers and stylists will set you up with an on-trend cut and style that is guaranteed to deliver. Be sure to stock up on some hair product, too -- samples are always free!


Use the Force Redline Fans! Join us in taking these steps necessary to minimize risk and maintain a safe and healthy environment! Let’s make Lord Vader proud!
