Treating Your Boyfriend to a Haircut? Take Him to these 5 Specialty Barbershops

By  - 7 years ago

Are you thinking of spoiling your man with a hair cut? Don’t bring him to the same parlor where you had your hair permed three months ago–take him to a special grooming salon instead. Your man deserves a dapper haircut from a barber who knows his sh*t, after all.

5. Talas Manileño

If your man is into the James Dean pompadour craze, take him to Talas Manileño–a retro-hip themed concept barbershop owned by Jericho Rosales. The Filipino word talas means sharp, which is exactly what your boyfriend will look like once he steps off his ~vintage~ barber chair.

Try the:  Manileño (cut, wash, scalp massage, and choice of craft beer, whiskey, or brewed coffee) or Tasa (cut and wash)

Reserve a chair: 0917 503 1842 /

4. Hangar Fine Barbers

This aviation-themed barbershop takes grooming to first class. Book your SO an appointment and get a boarding pass to a clean, smooth cut.

Try the: Gilder (PHP 280; cut + warm face towel treat + scalp and neck touch-up massage) or the Zeppelin (PHP 600; cut+ executive shave + warm face towel treat + full body massage)
