Get clipped somewhere down a back alley in the heart of Vietnam’s biggest city, Ho Chi Minh City

Saigon Clippers is another super-cool little find down another narrow alley off Le Hong Phong Street towards the intersection with 3 Thang 2 Street.
This barber shop is probably the furthest and trickiest to find, but it’s a fun discovery.
Much smaller than the other barber shops, Saigon Clippers has four barbers wielding the scissors and clippers daily from 10am to 8pm.
Things are less hectic but they still manage to punch out around 60 haircuts a day at VND60,000.
Saigon Clippers is less ostentatious than the other places we’ve featured on The Bureau — indeed there’s barely enough room to swing a fully shaven cat — but that doesn’t mean it lacks in confidence and style.
Saigon Clippers is at 690/23 Le Hong Phong, District 10, HCMC. For more info, go to facebook.com/SAIGONCLIPPERS
