Neil Writes About The Village Barber and Supply Shop!

Neil Writes About The Village Barber and Supply!

As of this writing, it has almost been a year since I became a patron at the Back Alley Barbershop in Salcedo, and when I found out that they were introducing a new concept at the Burgos Circle of BGC, I couldn't be happier. So when they invited me to visit, I jumped ship as soon as my hair grew three weeks later.

The Ambiance

The Eight Forbes Town Road building where the barbershop is situated is the towering structure right across the Tipsy Pig at BGC. The J.CO donuts will be your marker to where the main entrance of the commercial space of the structure. As you go past the security check are two escalators that will lead you to the second floor, and conveniently where The Village Barber and Supply Shop is located.

The Design language and vibe of Village is on the minimal side. They primarily chose brown, copper and white colors that are mostly from a variety of wood and metals that compliment the thick glass that seperates the space from the outside. As a result, Village feels more relaxed and more refined. This is obvious because the space is smaller than Back Alley, but you never feel claustrophobic.

The attention to detail is what I find most appealing about this breed of Barbers!

The Haircut and The Other Services

For as long as I can remember, I was having my haircut at neighbourhood barbershops that were hole in the walls where a haircut was priced from Php 30.00 in the nineties and went up to Php 50.00 in recent years. In contrast, there are barbershops in Beverly Hills, California that offer haircuts that could cost up to a USD 1000.00 and I could never comprehend how this is so.

The haircut, the massage, the shave, the Fonzie and the Hungover Treament are the same top notch service that Back-Alley has bred through its run. The Barbers and the receptionists are open, you can make suggestions or changes to your trim depending on your preference.

So if you love Back-Alley and are nearer to Village then you now have an option that is more convenient to get to.

The Price

Haircut starts at Php 350.00 but is priced at Php 700.00 together with the shave. The shave itself is Php 450.00. while the Hungover Treatment (HT) is priced at Php 750.00 individually but is priced at Php 950.00 with the haircut. If you want an HT and a shave, it will set you back Php 1000.00, and You can have all three for the price of Php 1200.00.

I personally tip my barber of the day and it is up to you if you would and how much you will be willing to give these fine gentlemen.

The Conclusion

This reminds me of the feeling I got when I first had my trim at Back-Alley, the feeling where I feel so manly pampered that I finally understood why the ladies love going to their salon for whatever reason. If I lived nearer to Village I would come back here every month for my trim, but I live near Back-Alley so I will remain there.

If you've never tried to have a real old-school haircut, I highly suggest you do. You do not know what you are missing. After all, we only like what we know.
