Finding a good hairdresser for men in Bangkok

Something you need to do quite regularly in Bangkok is?

Cutting your hairs.

There are at least two reasons for that:

– Bangkok is so hot that having long hairs is pretty uncomfortable

– Bangkok is so hot and humid that hairs grow faster :)

So it is important to find a good hairdresser. But easier said than done. Why? Because the majority of the hairdressers in Thailand were, I think, trained by the army, very skilled with a shaver but very poor cutting skills with scissors. So? Most of them mainly use the shaver…

In Bangkok, we’re luckier, with a bit of research, you can find some hairdressers using scissors more than the shaver, or at least as much as the shaver.

I and my son usually go to the hair salon located in Lotus Rama 4 in Bangkok, where quite a few hairdressers are, with different skills and different preferences.

Here is the one more on the shaving side. A bit worried.

And here is another one taken quite long ago, right, I’ve been worried for a very long time 😀

It seems it will be a shaving session today, it makes some girls in the salon smile but not sure everybody looks happy

Well, nobody smiles anymore, except the one taking the photo 😀

But here is a second trip to the same salon, different hairdresser. One with no hairs, and surprisingly or not, the one who has no hairs uses scissors mainly.

A little apprehensive at the beginning

But it turned out to be quite OK

What do you think, shaver or scissors?
