With the ever-changing vogue, India’s grooming industry has seen a remarkable surge over the last decade. The men’s grooming industry is burgeoning and nobody wants to miss out on their piece of the pie. Owing to the surge, barbershops are on a rise in Bangalore, while existing establishments are striving to keep up with the dynamism of the trade. Here are our picks for the best barbershops in Bangalore.


A brainchild of one Adhuna Bhabani, BBLUNT is a salon chain in India that has earnest roots tracing back to 1998’s Mumbai. A couple of decades later, BBLUNT is a successful franchise operating out of several towns in India. Bangalore alone has multiple BBLUNT branches providing top notch services to its loyal clientele. Additionally, the unisex salon resonates the idea that imperfections aren’t the problem, rather they are what defines us.

Hakim’s Aalim

The who’s who of India’s Hindi film industry—Bollywood—will swear by the name, Aalim Hakim. The celebrity hairstylist boasts an A-list clientele who have had a long-standing association with him. Besides, he runs a salon enterprise branching across the country. The professionals at Hakim’s Aalim are well qualified to cater for the requirements of the customers.

Bounce is a chain of unisex salons spread across the ‘Garden City‘ covering all the zones. Apart from typical salon services, Bounce specializes in bridal dressing and nail art among other things. Thanks to its lengthy catalog, the place has garnered a loyal clientele over the years. In comparison to its peers, Bounce is known for not burning a hole in the pocket, which further explains its popularity.

Truefitt & Hill

Truefitt & Hill is as old as the word ‘barbershop’ itself, unmatched and unparalleled in prominence. It’s not every day that you come across an enterprise whose one-time clients were the likes of Winston Churchill and Frank Sinatra. Bangalore is among the very few places in India with a Truefitt & Hill barbershop. Needless to say, grooming services at the establishment are of the highest quality, if not the most economical.

Moustache Barbershop

A quirky idea to bring together the best worlds of old-school barbershops and state-of-the-art salons has paved way for a men-only establishment, Moustache Barbershop. As the motto of Moustache Barbershop goes, it’s an effort to brink back the former glory of conventional barbershops that had little to no involvement of the opposite sex. It’s safe to say that Bangaloreans have taken a liking for an eccentric venture such as this.

In the same vein as Truefitt & Hill, Toni & Guy has a reputation that is built on years of unswerving quality. Although the prices are slightly on the expensive side, the exceptional standards of their services duly make up for it. Their exceptional expertise with hairdressing has succeeded in garnering a robust clientele, further staking a claim as one of the best barbershops in Bangalore.

Trim ‘N’ Shape

In comparison to the other entries, Trim ‘N’ Shape is a rather unassuming establishment situated at the core of Bangalore. The dedicated professionals at Trim ‘N’ Shape come recommended by many satisfied customers, especially men.
