Is it correct to say that 'I had a barber's appointment' or 'I had an appointment with my barber'?

Thanks!

    Either is fine, but "appointment with" makes it sound more personal. You can also refer to the place rather than the person: "I had an appointment at the barber's", which removes the personal element.

    Thanks, I was going for the personal bit, as he is the only barber at his place. Is it okay to add this as well:

    I had an appointment with my barber in my lunch break

    Or during would be more appropriate?
