During the past few years, I set out on a quest to find the best barbershop in Dubai…
I’m not going to lie, there were times when things went downhill, as you can imagine if you’ve ever fell into the hands of an atrocious hairdresser (which you probably have), and other times where I satisfyingly pulled out of the barbershop feeling like James Dean. I started by searching on my own, scouring reviews and popping into random places all around the city. And then I thought, Why not go straight to the source? So I began asking around, especially seeking help from my local friends who have beards and hair that are cut to the T, and I was not disappointed.
Of course, a lot goes into the decision of choosing a barber, from the environment, the art and the style. You’re obviously putting a lot of trust in someone’s hands, so you want to make sure that aside from giving you a good cut or shave, your barber in some way reflects a part of your identity. Also, crickets… Nobody loves crickets and I, for one, do not tolerate their sound. In other words, I hate silence! Each to their own, but I love talking and making conversation with people, so seeing as you’re will be sitting at the salon for 15-45 minutes, you best have something in common to talk about. For that reason, we present you to some of the best barbershops in Dubai (you’re going to want to try all of these).
