If you are in Bali and need to look fresh for a wedding or just looking to get a routine cut then try one of these barbers. Be warned that barbers in Bali have a tendency to pamper their clients with hot towels, ice cold Bintangs, and many other creative services to make you feel like a movie or rock start. After all your business is vital to the survival to these shops. I spoke with the owner of Bali Barber who owns and operates several barber shops across Bali who said,’ Typically, visitors are only visiting Bali for one to two weeks. So getting them to walk through your front door is only half the battle. Sometimes it’s not an easy task.” Bali Barber and many other barbers across Bali continue to up their game in order to survive. I’ve rounded up the best barbers in Bali, who i’ve personally rated.
So no matter where you’re adventure takes you in Bali, here are the best barbers no more than a stone’s throw away.
7 Things I look for in a barber shop in Bali are as follows:
- Communication – There is nothing worse then telling a barber exactly what you want and getting exactly the opposite. I have had my fare share of them.
- Cleanliness – clean combs, scissors, razors, and a tight organized workshop is mucho important to me. Nothing worse than coming home to your wife with a rash, infection, or looking like Mike Tyson’s component.
- Cool Chill Atmosphere– Some barbers get super creative to get their brands noticed here from good old fashioned 40’s and 50’s styled shops to head bangers ball, Bali has it all.
- Location– A good central location is always a plus. Grabbing a bite to eat before or after is a nice thing to have. Or have the wife shop near by so you can have manly time with the fellas.
- Services Services Services– he list for some of the services would be too long to write about. These places offer it all. If they don’t, well they will once you ask.
- Customer Service– I stick to barbers that make me feel like Royalty.
- Skills– Last but not least. This is the most important. They have to have skills or they would not be on this list.
Bali Barber Seminyak
After riding your motorbike around Bali, walk into Bali Barber to remove the toxins and road particulate from the pores of your face. Followed by a hard
waxed nose and ear hair removal that will bring back two of your senses. (smell & hearing) But before you start letting a hair surgeon begin her tactical waxing , loosen up a bit with a beer or two while enjoying an athletic massage (vigorous strokes targeting specific muscles). Bali Barber is my first choice for many reasons when I am in Bali. They met all my standards and any expectations I had before walking through their doors. That being said this is not a girly spa , it is a a full service man-cave although they have a salon right downstairs for the lady. Tons of services , great service, easy to book, friendly staff who is ready to take care of you from head to toe. Check out their website below, you can book online and they even have a live cam. Definitely the best service in town.
