Finding a barber who is capable of giving you that perfect cut can be quite troublesome in Cairo, so we've put together a list of the finest salons in town who are sure not to disappoint!
Gettig a good haircut in Cairo can be a nightmare sometimes. Endless droves of barber shops and salons are scattered across the entire city of many varying degrees of cost and quality of service, it's never easy to just randomly choose one. When we eventually do, the best we come away with is a satisfactory cut. Most of the time the barber simply never listens to what you want and incorporates his/her own ideas into what your hair should look like (Sorry pals, doesn't really work that way!). There are, however, a good few hairdressers dotted around the vastness of Cairo whose barbers are professional, experienced, offer a great quality of service, and will give exactly what you're looking for. We've made the job of finding them very easy for you now with this comprehensive list. Have a look.
First on our list are Mohamed & Ramy in Mohandiseen who offer a whole host of grooming services for men, and provide them only to the highest degree. Lucky enough to be a groom? You should definitely head here to get you all fixed up looking more than perfect for your significant other. If their standard service wasn't good enough, they even have a deluxe service in their VIP section if you book an appointment.
For those living out in the suburbs of New Cairo, Nader New Look is the most convenient yet number one recommended salon east of the capital. With nothing but glittering five-star reviews on their official Facebook page, they are guaranteed to leave you walking out their doors with a smile so wide it reaches from sideburn to sideburn.
Address: Rehab Mall 2, New Cairo
Probably the classiest fancy shmanciest baber shop on our list, GoodBarbers offer nothing less than premium services in a very traditional old-school setting. If you're looking to get a timeless classic Frank Sinatra-esque look, with all the pampering and grooming that comes with it, this is the place for you.
With 60 five-star reviews on his official Facebook page, Melad Bebars must be doing something right! The salon's namesake owner doesn't take the traditional approach at all to his trade. To Bebars, fixing our mops is an art form. Hair styling has been a hobby and a passion of Bebars since childhood, and has more than 20 years of experience of it. If you're a resident of Cairo's Westside, we certainly cannot recommend him more!
Yet another one from Giza. Is it the hairstyling capital of Egypt we never knew about? Looks like it just might be! With almost 50 five-star reviews on their official Facebook page, Ahmed El Agouz's regular customers are incredibly pleased with the treatment they get here. One of the top dogs in Giza in hairdressing, El Agouz is known for their friendliness, professionalism, creativity, and attention to detail.
