Having stood in Siam Square for over 20 years, Tew’s Barbershop is something of a local legend. This vintage venue was established back when Siam Square was packed with over 30 barbershops.
Today, Tew’s Barbershop has branched out with two more venues in Ekkamai and Phromphong, maintaining the same standard of style, quality, and service. This last element, perhaps, is the reason why so many customers return to the shop again and again.
Although the mantle has been passed down to the second generation, fashionable men both young and old still put their trust in the shop’s experienced staff.
The barbers here aren’t only skilled with vintage haircuts, but also the newest styles on the trend, basically anything that you demand. As this is a rather traditional barbershop, the staff use mainly hair clippers to style your hair.
Other than haircuts, Tew’s Barbershop also offers shaving, ear cleaning, and manicure services – an old tradition kept alive in this shop. If you want to check out this place, we recommend booking a couple of days in advance, as the barbers only take up to seven clients per day.
