A good barber in Bangkok?

Posted by ktontour on 16/12/2013 at 08:17

Trivial I know, but in an effort to avoid a skinhead, can anyone advise on a good barbershop in Bangkok?

I've been unilaterally warned off it by everyone I've met thus far who's ventured a try.. but I'm 3 months in and starting to resemble Patrick Swayze circa Dirty Dancing... but with none of the rhythm or sex appeal.

With sincere thanks

ever since my mid 30's, i've just gone with a #2 buzz cut. cheap and effective, and i save heaps on shampoo. but if you are looking for something a bit more sophisticated, picking just any shop might not be the best option, particularly if you aren't in a part of town used to cutting westerners' hair.

you might try checking out the shops in some of the larger shopping malls. they tend to be pretty good and will likely have someone who can give you exactly what you are looking for. then again, if you'll be in southeast asia for a few more months, you might try that #2 buzz cut. nice and cool in the hot weather.

good luck and let us know how it turns out. cheers.
