The bearded or hipster look is becoming more and more popular. Beards are back in fashion. But you still need to find the right barber to maintain your beard properly and keep it soft and silky. Here is a selection of our favourite Belgian barbers.
Bayer & Bayer in Brussels
In a beautiful mansion in the heart of the Sablon district, Bayer & Bayer takes care of your beard in the traditional way. The decor is particularly cosy with a large mirror framed by wood, a comfortable leather chair and even a bar area for waiting or to prolong the pleasure. While your beard is being expertly taken care of, you can treat yourself by tasting (in moderation) one of the spirits on offer. Shaving, cutting and trimming: everything is done with the aim of making you feel good.
