8. Old Thai Barber

Old Thai Barber in Chiang Mai

Old Thai Barber is a vintage-style barbershop located in the Phra Sing area of Chiang Mai. It is a single-chair barbershop, and the hairstylist really takes his time to perfect his work. So, if you want a speedy grooming session, this may not be the best place for you.

On that note, it is best to schedule an appointment in advance.

Old Thai Barber also offers off-site services. Whether you want a haircut or a beard trim right in your home, hotel room, office, or anywhere else within Chiang Mai, just give them a ring to make arrangements with their barber.

9. California Barber and Gentleman Suit

California Barber and Gentlemen Suit in Chiang Mai

Formerly known as California Barber and Coffee Shop, the business has shifted its focus from a cafe to a suit rental service. Nevertheless, the shop remains primarily a barbershop that offers good haircut and styling services to all gentlemen and women in Chiang Mai.

Unlike other barbershops, California does include grooming services, particularly razor shaving. So, this can be a little bummer for those customers wanting a full-service makeover.
