A Delightful Step Back to Another Era

Seven – Cut for Men Barber in Denpasar Pampers Both in Service and Price


In’s list of Bali’s experiences too good not to share is now added a visit to a recently opened barber shop in downtown Denpasar : Seven – Cut for Men Barber.

Lured by a road side banner and a Twitter account @SevenBarber, Bali Update Editor J.M. Daniels took the short trip into town and was greeted by a tastefully decorated three-chair barber shops. Wood floors and antique items hinted of an earlier era, any mistaken suggestion that Seven-Cut is “artsy” is quickly swept away by a barbershop that's strictly business and unwaveringly dedicated to the delivery service and value.

Greeted at reception a young man who gave me a queuing number, he explained that there would be a wait of around 75 minutes for the next available barber.

Taking advantage of an interesting and very reasonably priced coffee shop and restaurant next door I enjoyed a good pizza for only Rp. 20,000 (US$1.75). Ahead of schedule, the receptionist came to fetch me for my turn in the waiting line that was, in fact, closer to a half-hour that the projected hour and a quarter.

Both the layout of this barber shop and its prices harks back to a time when guys went to shops rather than salons to get their haircut. The prices posted on the wall also seem to come form earlied era:
  • Basic Cut (haircut only) Rp. 35,000 (US$3.00)
  • Classic Cut– including cut, shampoo, tonic, pomade and and head massage Rp. 50,000 (US$4.30)
  • Junior Cut – for young customers 12 year or under. Rp. 35,000 (US$3.00)
  • Father and Son Cut – the classic treatment for a man and his accompanying son Rp. 80,000 (US$7.00)
  • Styling – including washing and pomade Rp. 25,000 (US$2.20)
  • Trimming and Shaving - Rp. 20,000 (US$2.20)
  • Hair Coloring Rp. 80,000 (US$7.00)
  • Hair Tattoo Rp, 80,000 (US$7.00)
I opted for the Classic Cut and a shave – the combination of which cost only Rp. 70,000 (US$6.00). A real bargain for a shampoo, excellent cut, tonic treatment, head massage and a super close shave done with a new razor - demonstrably opened in front of the customer to demonstrate hygiene.

The entire visit was an exercise in manly indulgence. If I would change anything about my visit, I think the hot towel used to sooth my closely shaved face could be followed up with a dash of Old Spice or Aqua Velva – the astringency of either helping to ward off  my slight case of razor burn.

With prices and service like this, I think I’ve found my barber shop for years to come.
