Men these days take grooming every bit as seriously as women and in the heart of Parklands is an oasis of primping and preening dedicated to males. To call Professional Unisex Barber Shop a plain old barber is an understatement, because the services on offer extend to so much more than a simple short, back and sides.
It is located just a short two minute walk from the main Parklands MyCiTi stop in the shopping complex on the corner of Link and Parklands main road and is run by Pakistanis who also know a smidgen of Afrikaans. The list of services include haircuts, shaves and beard shaping, but look out for the more unusual eyebrow threading, head and neck massages and flat ironing and blow dries.
I opted for a haircut, threading and a beard shape and was really pleased with the results. The threading simply cleared up ugly straggler eyebrows without leaving a very feminine result and the entire package was a snip at R70.
There is also a female hairstylist on the premises so your girlfriend could have her hair done at the same time. Prices range from R40 and there is ample parking. It may not look terribly exciting from the outside, but trust me, The Professional Unisex Barber is well worth a visit. They are also open from 8am to 7pm most days, so you can pop in after work.
