As men's self-care routines grow ever more complex and sophisticated, the popularity of the traditional grooming parlour and barbershop has seen a resurgence. We can imagine no better place to bring dad for a relaxing spruce-up this Father's Day, so assembled here are some of the island's best manscaping establishments.


Ideal for: the slick dad

Proud cultivators of facial hair will love the range of beard oil and moustache wax stocked both on-site and online by this salon, which also sells pomades and other grooming necessities. If dad’s a little patchy and needs filling out, the Geylang Hair Tattoo will (literally) have him covered.

Ideal for: the regal Dad

The London-trained experts at this coolly minimal barbershop specialise in a seven-phase — facial scrub, pre-shave oil, hot towel, shave + cold towel, post-shave balm, moisturizer and haircut) package called The Sultan’s experience, the perfect father’s day indulgence.

Ideal for: the shaggy dad

Ideal for: the classic dad

A Singaporean outpost of a storied British institution — whose clients included Churchill and Sinatra — this grooming haven’s interiors take their cues from the decadent private clubs of old.

Ideal for: the vintage-lovin' dad

This place’s stylish barbers, with their Prohibition-era/Victorian hybrid style, are not just fans of the fashions of bygone eras, but of their elaborate grooming routines as well. Hot towel shaves and full-face manscaping aside, you’ll also find a known Victorian obsession on the Hounds’ list of services: tattooing.
