barber shop in manila

i wanted to show you how barber shops in manila looks like inside but i was hesitant to ask the barbers to let me in because they were having a nice siesta when i dropped by, but was kind enough to let me take pictures.   


anyways i am glad that barbershops and parlors still exists in manila, even though there has been an influx of high end salons that caters to both women and men.  even though men has become more metrsosexual and likes to be pampered like women, i still believe that manila men still prefer these kind of barber shops instead of those laced up shops in the malls :)

the amount for a haircut in manila these days is 40 pesos (less than 1USD) for all the regular barbershop (meaning those little barber shop within your street) and its around 60 pesos for women in your suking parlor (salon).  but the price is higher in high end salon

I find your blog so cool. Manila for me has always been nostalgic and breathes out a wind of memories that makes your heart travel.

Wow. I just got mine cut at a regular old barber and paid $8.00 US Dollars.

I like this photograph.

Hubby dear still prefers barbers too. I guess it doesn't help that gay hairdressers can't seem to keep their hands on just his hair. ;D
