Anna Elliott, formerly of Contesta Rock Hair, heads up the operation at this old-fashioned Jingan barbershop in a former convenience store, and presides over a supremely comfortable atmosphere. Here 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 is most popular, but we recommend combining the high-quality cut with a straight razor shave 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. The team also just opened a second barbershop in Pudong at Kerry Parkside (1388 Huamu Lu, near Fangdian Lu) to cater to their east-side clientele.

Buzz cut or back and sides from 198RMB; cut from 298RMB; cut and shave from 498RMB; cut and beard trim from 386RMB.
