Following on from the indie coffee shop trend that went from zero to hero in less than a year, and the frozen yoghurt fad the year before that, we officially declare 2017 as the year that trendy barbershops will rise into fashion (because whoever said that guys can’t be beautiful too?)
We’re not sure how long this trend will last, but you won’t hear any complaints from us. It’s about time the men of Jakarta took care of themselves.
Real men go to real barbers! Well, we quoted that from Mr. Quotesgram but we are totally agree with that statement because great hair makes the gentleman. Lucky for you boys (you’re not men yet), we have compiled all the best barbershops in Jakarta that should be suited for you. A suggestion from us, make a reservation first before going so you won’t leave with a trim.
