The series offers some interesting insight into barbershop culture, which is historically the socializing center for men in some communities. It also showcases some of the artistry of professional barbers, who use clippers, razors, and coloring techniques to cut their designs into people's crowns. It's interesting, but each episode is so short that it lacks enough to depth to get any real insight into any of it.

There are lots of jokes, trash talking, and occasional dancing throughout each competition to make the series as funny as it is competitive. Cedric the Entertainer also uses the show as a forum for unleashing his trademark humor, which gives the show some edge; the comedian's fans will find it worth watching.
