Well-groomed hair (provided you still have some) should be an inseparable part of every gentleman’s image. Luckily, Bangkok is home to quite a few barber shops where get your hairstyle upgraded by professional barbers and enjoy a bit of pampering. Here are Patrick & Co’s favourite ones.
Black Amber is an established barber shop with a gentleman’s club vibe quietly tucked away in a little soi in Thonglor (not far away from our tailor shop). If you are looking for an experience, this is the place to go as barbers go beyond a simple haircut. You are offered a drink of your choice and can even bring your cigars and smoke inside while you wait. However, this is reflected in your final bill as prices are on the higher end.
Located in Siam and Ekkamai, Tew’s Barbers Shop is a traditional barber shop for men with style. It’s been in operation since 1994 and withstood the test of time, which is a testament of the quality services. Similar to Black Amber, Tew’s barber shop is also all about community. Moreover, you can get style advice as well as services beyond a haircut, such as facial massage, hot shave or manicure.
Barberford Reserve is an upscale barber shop offering all gentlemen an indulgent barbering and grooming experience in a luxurious atmosphere. The interior of the store combines features of traditional and modern style and together with the music, it forms a luxurious ambience. The service menu consists of classic barbering with sleek modern style as well as a wet shave. You can find it near our tailor shop in Thonglor.
Compared to other barbers on the list, Craftsman Barber Shop is a newcomer to the men haircut scene in Bangkok. Tucked away in a busy soi in Phra Khanong, the shop is decorated in a vintage style and has a relaxed atmosphere. Skilled barbers do a great job at giving haircuts and hot-towel shaves, but are also engaging in a conversation. Besides haircuts, you can also upgrade your hair arsenal as the shop sells quite a few pomades and styling products.
Last but not least, Three Brothers is another good choice for a stylish haircut in Bangkok. Their store stands out for its retro raw and rustic atmosphere. You can expect a quality haircut that may take you back in time – barbers here focus on 1950s-style quaffs and undercuts—think Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and James Dean. Likewise, you can also select from many quality pomades to go with the haircut or shave. Their barber shop is located near MRT Chatuchak.
As you can see, there’s no shortage of quality barber shops in Bangkok. However you decide, we believe you can’t go wrong with any of these choices.
