4 Cutting-edge Barbershops from Around the World

Moving beyond the hipster barbershop.

Barbería Royal

Barbería Royal
Mexico City

With a Gehry-esque gold ceiling reflecting a classic interior – 1950s chairs and mismatched wood mouldings – this brand new barbershop has style from head to toe. Go for the Royal Package to get the same results: It includes a cut and shave with products from the shop’s line, a curative eye treatment and a shoeshine.

Andrés Bello 45, 52-55-7095-4571

Harry’s Corner Shop
New York

College buddies Andy Katz-Mayfield and Jeff Raider (co-founder of eyeglass empire Warby Parker) opened this SoHo barbershop as an outpost for their line of affordable shave products, where staff will keep track of your style and product preferences for future visits using their digital Cut Archive app. Treat yourself to a Trusco toolbox or a Best Made Belgian dart set from the shelf of goodies on your way out.

64 MacDougal St., 646-998-3245


At this simple barbershop designed by Ard Hoksbergen, copper pipes and hanging bulbs warm the raw space of white tile and concrete. The comfort here is in the treatments – book the 55-minute “Starsky & Hutch” with Salina and Isabelle for a thorough cut and shave with products like Taylor of Old Bond Street avocado shave soap (but careful you’re not lulled to sleep under the spell of lavender-steeped towels).

Binnen Oranjestraat 24, 31-20-33-737-55

Ruffians Barbers

Get comfy in a custom Apollo II petrol-blue leather chair at this corner shop in the city’s West End. Book the 45-minute cutthroat shave with dexterous store manager Laura. She’ll pass over the skin twice, first with a bristle brush lathered in hot, soapy water, then with a signature Ruffians shavette and the shop’s sandalwood-scented shave gel to lift hair off the skin.

23 Queensferry St., 44-131-225-8962
