I wonder if anyone from Singapore in this forum has tried Japanese Barbershops.

 

I personally like Azami Barber in UE square. 

 

Does Malaysia have such barber shops?

 

I tend to think that for men at a certain age (ie. me),  who have the same conservative haircut since the 90s,

the quality of the cut is less important than

 

  • the good hairwash, basically an extended head massage.
  • a good post haircut, back and shoulder massage.
  • a good shave that the barber does not impress upon you about uselss information, like the shave cream is made of ethical, organic, cruelty free ingredients.

All these, with none of the flash, pretentiousness and cross-selling/upselling of other services (waxing, tattooing, shoe polishing, pizza?? ) of those hipster joints.

 

Japanese Barbershops excel in these 3 tasks. These shops are mostly patronised by Japanese men, and sometimes their male kids.

 

And you get a cup of green tea or coffee, after everything's done.

 

That being said, I recently got suckered into getting a 'plan' with 'We need a hero', so maybe i go back to my old favorite once I finish the plan.

I just took a very nice pic of my hair I wanted to post but the ipad photo adapter is in the shop, not here with me. This perm has changed my life.

What's the damage for the 1 time adventure?

Thank you.

Nothing exorbitant.. unless you compare with those $10 joints.

 

Japanese barber = around SGD$40+ for a wash and cut. Can't remember the exact price.

I have been using wet look hair gel for a long time. Recently I have come to appreciate the slightly greasy feel of a nicely combed bunch of hair using Brylcreem.

 

Anyone?

^ Brylcreem smells great (maybe coz its nostalgic), but it doesnt have enough hold for my baby fine hair. And if I slap it on in large quantities to try and increase the hold, grease becomes an issue as I have oily skin in general.  

 

Good and cheap product, but unfortunately, not for me.

 

I use a clay based product, which gives me the hold and also some much needed body to my hair. Trick is to apply it when the hair is slightly damp, then slick it back, to produce a slight sheen. If I'm attending an evening event, I'll put on a little pomade on top of that for disco shine.

Anyone tried Clean and Groom? An old American product with similar pedigree and history as Brylcreem (although doesn't share the same export market share). Supposed to give you the shine of Brylcreem minus the grease.

Thanks 6.

 

I have to try out the Groom and Clean the next time I get a chance to visit the States. Don't seem to see that available in Singapore.

So I got re-permed today. My hair had grown and the old perm was only at the tips. When I got back from the hairdresser, I thought it would be a good idea to take a portrait of myself for use in marketing collateral.

A perm is the only way to shape thick Chinese hair. Once I got one, my consumption of hair products has gone to almost zero, because the hair has a permanent shape.

Was with my hairdresser today. Shot with the Fujifilm X-M1 + XF 18-55 with the standard film simulation.

Went to Truefitt and Hill for a cut yesterday (BSC branch). Quite pleased with the service - the barber did not follow my instructions 100% though and deviated from my standard style. Still, I would go back there.

 

Had some promo going on so 10% off. Normally its $100 for a cut.

 

You get a complimentary cup of espresso coffee whilst you are there - retail value $10 ish?
