Dylan Byrne and former Contesta Rock Hair expert Anna Elliott have opened a second branch of their barber shop in Pudong, offering haircuts, styling and straight razor shaves to their east-side clientele.
While the space is larger than the original, the offerings are the same. You can get straight-razor shaves, beard trimming or a wash and style. All services include a complimentary Jameson or Asahi, and there’s vintage rock ‘n’ roll and blues on the speakers to match the classic interior. A haircut and beard trim (from 386RMB) is most popular, but we recommend combining the high-quality cut with a straight razor shave (from 498RMB) for a real man-treat, complete with hot towels and two rounds of shaving to leave you better acquainted with your chin than you’ve ever been. If it's just a haircut you're after, you can get buzz cut or back and sides from 198RMB, head shaves from 268RMB or a cut from 298RMB.
Doc Guthrie's is as much about hanging out as it is getting your whiskers trimmed - you're partly paying for the experience and the atmosphere.
