Men… it’s been three months since you’ve had a proper haircut and grooming sessions.
Maybe you’re one of the few brave soldiers snipping, shaving, and colouring your own locks during self-quarantine. Or maybe, you’ve been patient enough to wait for barbershops to reopen. Regardless of your current hair situation, barber shops across the capital are open now following strict health protocols. It’s time to finally get a proper haircut after looking like a caveman! So here are the top eight barbershops in Jakarta:
There are currently four branches with support from skilled barbers only from Garut, West Java. CHIEF Barbershop has grooming services like a close taper shave, hot towel shave, hair dye, as well as its very own pomade product sold under “Chief Barber & Supplies Co.” and other international brands such as Uppercut and JS Sloane.
