Bench Fix is a popular choice among millennials due to it being endorsed by top celebrities. However, being one of the top salons in the country has one caveat: you need reservations or else you’ll wait forever.

One barbershop that I’ve been rooting for lately is Bruno’s Barbers. They are very good in executing comb-over haircuts (Alden Richards-style) as what you’ve seen on my Instagram here.

 

Bruno’s Barbers is the barbershop I trusted to cut my hair right before my wedding last year and apart from giving you a great looking haircut, they also give you one of the best massages. In fact, they have a wide range of massage services in their menu – something that is not so common among barbershops. Check below for prices.

6. Felipe & Sons Barberdashery

One barbershop that has gone a long way from being a newcomer to now a game changer and a very popular barbershop is Felipe & Sons.

 

I recall being one of their very first guests and during the first couple of months after they opened, they had very few clients. But fast forward today, they have skyrocketed to fame and you now need to reserve about a day in advance because they are always booked.

What makes them unique is aside from being a barbershop, they are also a haberdashery – they make suits for men, hence, the name Felipe & Sons Barberdashery.*

Aside from their Makati Branch, they now also have a branch in Ortigas and another one in Bonifacio Global City.

Rates:

Cut and Rinse (Men’s Haircut with Shampoo): Php 360

Shave: Php 450

Beard Sculpting: Php 450

Hair Color: Php 1,300 (with ammonia); Php 1,750 (without ammonia and no chemical smell)

Packages:

  • Two Bits (Cut and Rinse + Shave) – P700
  • Dye Hard (Cut and Rinse + Color) – P1,600

*Felipe and Sons also sells shirts, suits, coats, vests, and pants. They also have products on hair care, shave care, beard care, accessories, men’s wear, and foot wear.
