Hotsy Totsy

‘Fast Dame’ (in English) has brought a brand new swagger to Budapest’s barber scene. A cut shop & a cocktail bar all in one unique underground location, what’s not to like? Sip on a whisky sour as a cold razor skilfully navigates it’s way over your warm facial fuzz.

Dandy The Barber

A few minutes walk from Ferencik Ter, Dandy’s is a cracking little barbers joint where exposed brick and a warm exterior await every visitor. Take a seat in the high chair, marvel at your barber’s 1920’s style beard, and stare at Dandy’s cool frosted glass Paul Banks like image looking back at you through the window.

Black Sheep Barbers

These guys opened their doors in April 2017 and have been filled to the brim with fashion conscious men ever since.

These talented young upstarts will be making a hell of a noise in the hair world for many a year.
