Barbershops in Singapore

Be it a first date or job interview, it’s always important to leave a good impression. That said, keeping yourself groomed is something you should do even on a regular basis. As do manners maketh man, so does kempt hair. While some barbers out there charge $70 or more per haircut or beard shave, we’ve compiled a list of barbershops in Singapore that charge $45 and below.

You may have been scrimping with $5 haircuts, but it is fair to splurge occasionally and spoil yourself with a pampering gentlemen’s barbershop experience. These barbers will keep you looking suave and dapper – and maybe even to help you look more like a towkay than your boss.
