Short, long, bold, classic hair cuts or fades ... barbering has never before experienced so much creativity as what is happening with men’s hair in this day and age.

Eyes meet, whether you greet, pass-by or ignorantly stroll along, but arguably the next thing focussed on is your hair.

At Drew’s Barber Shop you can get acquainted with the best cut that suits you. Cool hairstyles and cuts are popping up constantly and barbers are creating really cool looks. Some of the top men’s hairstyles include the fade, undercut, under-fade, pompadours, hard part haircuts (shaved parts), disconnected undercuts, bald fades and arts.

Drews Barber Shop, upstairs at the Savalot Centre in Rosedale, is one of the most popular barber shops in town. It was established on the 1st November 2005 and this year celebrates its 10th year. Owner Andrew Claasen is an expert barber who started his profession at the young age of 14 in Cape Town. He is assisted by his co-barber and brother, Clinton Claasen who is an expert when it comes to art cuts.

When it comes to hair art, Drew’s Barber Shop offers options like stars, stripes, names, colour spray, tribal and cartoons. The contract options are popular and see to it that a man’s hair is well looked after. The month option (R140) includes free appointments for a cut every week and after four cuts the 5th is free of charge. The two month contract (R160) is the same, except for having a cut every second week.

“Die ondersteuning van die gemeenskap en lojaliteit van kliënte is inspirerend. Hier kom ’n paar manne met goeie wenke en idees oor haarstyle,” sê Andrew.

Die haarsalon met sy potspeltafel, musiek en televisies teen die mure skep ‘n ontspanende atmosfeer.

“Dit is ideaal vir ons om kreatief die knippers en skêre in te span om ons kliënte met selfvertroue, trots hier te laat uitstap. Party voel jare jonger, ander kry ’n celebrity look en dit teen spotgoedkoop pryse.”

Drew’s Barber Shop se besigheidsure is weeksdae 07:30 - 18:00 en Saturdae 07:00 - 15:00. )Vir meer inligting of om ’n afspraak te boek bel Andrew by 072 662 9269.
