The Barber of Bali

Jl. Raya Basangkasa 8X
Tel: +623618439868

Climb the winding staircase to reach this first floor barber shop, the two glass walls providing views over the bustling junction of Jl. Mertandi and Raya Seminyak. Armed with a holster of combs, scissors and razors hanging from their hip, the barbers here are equipped for anything, from the traditional wet shave to the Baldy full head shave. Order a beer if there is a wait, or a whiskey if you are going straight into the chair. Answering whether there is a growing demand for traditional straight razor shaves, owner Desmond Koval explains, 'Undoubtedly there has been a resurgence in respect for old school barbering around the world. Many of our clientele hail from Europe, Russia, and The Middle East where having a proper shave is the way to start your day.'
