Looking sharp is getting easier and easier in Saigon these days. The good old barbershop has undergone a renaissance, with shops sprouting up about the city like rogue hairs just before an important date.
Tony Barber House is one of those (not a rogue hair) that recognised the growing demand for quality barbers who know their way around a scalp and opened up earlier this year in the centre of town.
“Tony’s” has five barber’s chairs and at least as many barbers, so the lads can knock out plenty of cuts and shaves in a day. No fuss. Just in and out and on your way.
Tony Barber House also stocks one of the largest collections of pomade we’ve seen in Saigon. All the international labels are here, including Reuzel and Ti Gi, among others, while three locally-made pomade brands — Saigon Hustlers, The Gents Bay and Go Vintage — sit proudly alongside their more well-known brothers in wax.
If you’re looking for a great cut and shave for a song (VND130,000), Tony Barber House is on the money. No whiskey, cigars, craft beers or gentlemen’s suits here, just a friendly bunch of blokes whose sole purpose is to make you look a damn sight better when you leave than when you walked in.
Tony Barber House is at 205/7 Nguyen Trai, District 1, HCMC. For more info, click here
