Have a seat at one of these hip Bali barbershops while you get pampered with hot towels and ice cold Bintang. Rock out to the Ramones before, during, and after a hot shave and your next stylish celebrity cut. Learn history from a unique blend of untouched by time Americana and Balinese flair on the walls. Break the language barrier by asking for a “Jimmy Butler haircut” or “the Michael Fassbender cut”. We’ve rounded up the 5 best trendy barbershops across Bali. Here they are.
1. Bali Barber
After a long day of sightseeing on your motorbike around Bali, walk into Bali Barber for grooming yourself. But before you start letting a highly trained tweezer surgeon begin her tactical waxing, loosen up a bit with a beer while enjoying an athletic massage (vigorous strokes targeting specific muscles). Then choose from many hairstyles displayed just below Presidents Sukarno and Kennedy’s picture. Followed by a hot shave and pedicure while listening to Elvis Costello. Bali Barber is much more than another trendy Americana Barber joint. It’s a full-service mancave healing center.
2. Dorsey’s Barber Shop at Deus
For the Canggu-roos needing a little pampering after hard days surf session head straight to Dorsey’s Barber Shop on your custom Mod. No Shirt? No sandals? No problem. Have a seat in a deluxe 1950’s barber chair while your barber prepares a hot towel shave to clean you up. Enjoy rockabilly barber vibes as you chug down an ice-cold beer inside an ice-cold air-con man-shed decorated by grizzly Adams. This cabin-like barbershop keeps everything neat and clean which will put you at ease.

If Metallica opened up a barbershop, this place would be it. Sit back and enjoy the backstage pass as you journey through a rock n’ roll time machine.

Get your basic cut to a gentlemen’s cut, which includes the essentials. A vigorous shampoo, a precise cut, a dash of hair tonic, a smudge of pomade, the classic head massage, and a hot towel straight razor shave.

Sikkboy’s perfectly blended fades, shoulder/head massage, and a fun atmosphere will keep you coming back for more. Here you can joke around with your barber as they do their thing.
