For the gifted few men in our society that have the capacity to grow a full beard, this one is for you. In the recent decade, we’ve had many metrosexuals and “gentlemen” popping up.
I don’t mean “gentlemen” sarcastically. I’m referring to the term that dapper men who groom themselves with a fervent passion, use to address themselves and others like them.
You know, men like that.
Along with the emergence of this particular group of people, there have been modern barbershops appearing all over the island, catered specifically for men’s grooming.
However, not all are good and they’re always rather pricey, depending on the size of your beard. So we’ve compiled a short list of tried and tested barbershops that are affordable and good.
Grooming Is A Basic Human Right
1. We Need A Hero
We Need A Hero (cue song), is a grooming centre that provides haircuts, beard trimming, brow grooming, and even waxing services.
The name comes from their belief that there is a hero, buried within every man – he just needs proper grooming to emerge.
We Need A Hero provides beard trimming services starting from $15 and waxing from $22. For a full list of their services and prices, check here.
If your beard is in dire need of a trim, or even a simple haircut to freshen up, this is the place to go to bring out the hero in you.

2. Paul’s Barbershop/Barbershop Pauls’
Paul’s Barbershop is a humble barbershop in Bedok offering haircuts and beard trimming services.
A haircut will set you back $20, while a haircut and beard trimming session will cost $25.
There has been issues with inconsistency in the quality of the haircuts in the past few months, but haircuts are usually good.

3. Limpeh Barbershop
For a more consistent and affordable grooming experience, Limpeh Barbershop is your “man”.
An adult haircut here will set you back $20 and beard sculpting alone (it’s basically beard trimming) only goes for $10!
That’s extremely affordable to be honest. For a solid beard sculpt at just $10, it’s hard to beat.

4. Barber Point
Barber Point might seem like another random neighbourhood barbershop, with no social media or website, but don’t let that fool you.
Because it really doesn’t have any social media or website.
All we know is that the haircuts only cost $15. So a beard trim wouldn’t be that far off. In fact, it might be even less.
If you’re expecting young, dapper men, the barbers here are all veteran barbers who know their stuff.
Sometimes, you just need a good and simple, unpretentious haircut to look good.
Address: Blk 118 Rivervale Drive, #01-12, Singapore 540118
5. The Black Tie Barbershop
The Black Tie Barbershop is by far the most proper barbershop on this list. The barbers are dressed to the nines, in formal shoes, pants, suspenders, and a combover so smooth you’d slip.
A haircut will cost you from $20 to $30, depending on your age, while a beard trim will be $25.
The shop is usually crowded, so book an appointment on their website in advance.
