There's a place in central Ho Chi Minh City where you can get your bromance on and get a cut and shave at the same time

Brothers has taken going to get a short back and sides to a whole new level. Here blokes can get a great haircut, a traditional wet shave, facial treatments and the requisite hair and face wash followed by a quick head and shoulder massage thrown in.
Located in the centre of town on the second floor between the two L’Usine’s, Brothers is accessed through photographer Rehahn’s gallery.
It’s a salon that’s great for a quick trim on the run, or if you’ve got the time, somewhere the ‘bros’ can partake in some bromance over a craft beer or a single malt whiskey and a choof on a Cuban cigar on the balcony overlooking the Opera House on historic Dong Khoi Street.
Expect to pay around VND380,000 for a quick trim or VND580,000 for a signature cut with all the extras. About the only service that Brothers doesn’t offer is a full-body wax (in case you were wondering).
Brothers is at 157 Dong Khoi (2nd Floor), District 1, HCMC and is open daily from 10am to 8pm. For more info, go to facebook.com/brothersmensalon or brotherssaigon.vn
