[[File:Haircut Brothersbrothers in Animeanime.png|thumb|200px|The Haircut Brothers in the anime, as seen in ''[[EP158|A Goldenrod Opportunity]]'']]
The '''haircut brothers''' (Japanese: '''さんぱつきょうだい''' ''Haircut brothers'') are characters{{pkmn|groomer}}s in {{game|Gold and Silver|s}} and their remakes, {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, occasionally appearing in the [[Goldenrod Tunnel]] in [[Goldenrod City]], [[Johto]].
 
As the name suggests, the brothers give a single Pokémon a haircut that increases the [[friendship]] of the Pokémon, once per day. Using the services of the brothers is useful for evolving Pokémon that require a certain amount of friendship to evolve, such as {{p|Togepi}} or {{p|Eevee}}. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, the service not only raises a Pokémon's friendship, but also raises its [[Beautiful (condition)|Beauty]] stat, which is necessary to evolve {{p|Feebas}} into {{p|Milotic}}, due to the absence of [[Pokémon Super Contest|Contests]]s in the games.
 
The younger of the Haircut brothers is cheaper at {{PDollar}}300, but his service is often less satisfactory. However, the younger brother has a chance of occasionally increasing a Pokémon's friendship to a greater degree than the older brother is capable. The older brother is more reliable but more expensive at {{PDollar}}500.
