Truefitt & Hill
When it comes to a British-style barbershop, it’s impossible not to include Truefitt & Hill on the list. One of the oldest barbershops in England, the brand has opened its two branches in Bangkok, which are both tucked away within the convenient shopping malls in the heart of the city: Central Embassy and Emporium. Luxurious and stylish, the barbershop features fine furniture with golden-framed mirrors, posh velvet carpet, and fine wooden shelves. With a cup of coffee by your side, you’ll be seated in a comfortable armchair and get a nice customised cut from internationally trained hair stylists.
Located on the ground floor of Eight Thonglor, Barberford Reserve offers a separate room with a plush pulling curtain for those who’d prefer some privacy. Decorated with cosy colour palettes, this barbershop features midnight blue walls and warm parquet flooring throughout. Here, you’ll get to ensconce in a comfy wicker armchair in the intimate, shimmering ambiance, while experiencing its exquisite treatments and haircut from the professional barbers. On top of that, you can also get a soothing scalp massage and a relaxing arm rub during a hair wash.
