For The Boys: Get a Complete MANpering at Urban Barber

The typical neighborhood barber shop usually involves a quick forty-peso haircut and brush off inside a fan room. Not at Urban Barber.

Urban Barber gives the term “barber shop” a bespoke touch with their variety of grooming services aimed at giving the 21st-century man a unique “MANpering” experience inside an artsy, industrial-themed man-cave featuring graffiti art by artists HILO + GORI.

The owners of this modern barbershop themselves, Darrel So and Chad Africa, exude that bespoke attitude.

“One of the things we were both passionate about was grooming, making sure that you always present your best self,” said co-owner Africa.

Services range from a simple cut-and-style to cleansing and detox packages that come with a cup of coffee or bottle of beer.

The most basic service is A Cut-Above (precise haircut and styling) while the Metro Lumberjack (a haircut and beard-sculpting package) is best for the bearded and moustached. Those who want a clean-cut look can opt for the Urban Royal package (complete haircut and shave) while The Morning After (haircut and facial cleansing detox) is perfect after a night of partying.

Aside from their grooming services, Urban Barber is also a lifestyle hub that carries Filipino-made products from shirts, caps, accessories, and even vinyl players, handpicked “to represent the best of Filipino craftsmanship.”

So if you are ready to take on an edgier, more modern hairstyle or want a totally different look from head to foot, just come by Urban Barber and treat yourself to some man-time.
