There used to be a great Indian barber shop near the end of East Coast Rd, close to Bayshore Rd, sadly been closed for a while.

My Indian other good barber in the west has also closed so I'm looking for a new one with middling but not excellent success.

The 10x10 shops are ok, but just barely - I use them when a boss shows up unannounced and I need to get presentable fast. They don't shave the neck as well and certainly don't do the shoulder and scalp massage.

Can anyone recommend a good Indian barber to try, I don't mind travelling for a good experience.

Thanks,

If it's the one I think you are talking about, it's move just across the road. Its quite a famous one as it's where the President Nathan goes to every couple of weeks.

Look in the small alleys off Serangoon Road - S$5 standards price and queues only on Sundays (when nobody in his right mind should go to Little India anyway).

The flip-side of course is to suggest that the PP welcomes patent spam posts.

Well?

problem with a lot of places in sg, you can't get a consistently good cut every time from the same place, esp the $10 for 10 minute places I've visited.

I know Singapore has a small Italian population... anyone know whether any Italians cut hair in Sg, and the shop's location if it exists?

(cost is not a factor)

The indian barbar is still around & newly renovated- fully aircon now!
It's call NEW STAR, they are still there, beside a nice intalian restuarant on upper east coast rd. That's the one that president Nathan goes to.

They charge $8-, & if you want an old fashion shave (complete with foam & pen-knife) it's $12- :D

It doesn't matter what I do to my hair, it always looks rubbish..

I don't believe that. I don't believe that no matter what you do to your hair, it looks rubbish. That sounds really sad. :cry:
What's with that wife of yours? Doesn't she ever say anything nice to you about your hair? :roll:
Sigh......now listen here buddy boy, unless you're bald, it can't be all that bad! The right cut (which might be just 'short') followed by YOU having simple strategies should give good results. I've got crazy hair! Uneven curls and waves all over the place, a hairdresser's nightmare, but I keep it short and just scrunch it into shape with hair-gel each day, simple! Experiment a little with hair-gel or hair-wax so that YOU are the boss. (Ask the barber for advice on this.) You might surprise yourself!
Once you've got it how you want it, take a photo and show it to your next barber.

Actually a lot of women find the shaven head look quite sexy.

But you really have to have the right shaped head to pull it off, with no bumps or spots.
