The 5 best barber shops in Rotterdam
Schorem (scumbag) single-handedly made old fashioned barbershops cool again. Men flock here from all over the globe to get a perfectly pomaded pompadour, a wet towel shave, and to have a drink and a chat. Schorem even started their own training academy.
2) New York Barbershop
Way ahead of the current barbershop hype, this store in the basement of Hotel New York opened in 1884 and has been a family business ever since. Treat yourself to a ‘hot towel, straight razor, wet shave’, or have your beard trimmed and your moustache curled in this grand and luxurious barbershop.
3) La Fee Verte Beauty Parlour
Entering La Fee Verte is like stepping into a vintage lover’s living room instead of a hairdresser’s. When the green fairy (la fee verte) aka Jerry Gardenier waves her magic wand you’ll leave the shop feeling like a new human being. She also organises occasional workshops about vintage hairstyles.
4) Mudly's Barbershop
Thomas and his crew give modern haircuts in a classic fifties American barbershop setting. Their repertoire includes tight bobs, multi-coloured mohawks, perfectly trimmed beards and perky quiffs.
5) Rotterdam Barbers
A new kid on the block when it comes to the shop, but not to the skills. In 2015, after 15 years of working for someone else, Coos Ravelo decided to start his own barbershop. He and Quincy Becker give traditional and stylish haircuts, trim your beard, perfect your stubble or shave you perfectly bald, if that’s your thing.
