Bangkok celebrates posh men-only barbershops where a shave and a haircut come with a cigar and a shot of whiskey. The British barbershop chain Truefitt & Hill opened its Bangkok outlet last month at the luxury mall Central Embassy and brought along all the classic treatments -- manicures, pedicures, hot-towel shaves.
Meanwhile Black Amber Barber, in an alley off Soi Thonglor, is an intimate, private and comfortable place for guys to get that Elvis Presley pompadour perfected -- or any other style, really -- while their shoes are polished and they puff on a cigar.
The old-fashioned barbershop Blue Harbour in the K Village community mall on Sukhumvit Road is also a great place to get your beard trimmed, ears cleaned and hair cut or permed.
