Fox and the Bar­ber

Expat Living (Hong Kong) - - Body & Mind -

Fox and the Bar­ber of­fers high-qual­ity groom­ing for men, with a team of ex­pert bar­bers, and in a cool bar­ber­shop. Ser­vices in­clude a range of hair and shav­ing op­tions. The most pop­u­lar hair ser­vice is the wet cut and fin­ish. This in­volves a brief con­sul­ta­tion, fol­lowed by a hair wash then a cut with scis­sors or clip­pers. For beards, which are very much in vogue at the mo­ment, the beard trim and shape in­volves trim­ming and shap­ing with clip­pers or scis­sors.

The bar­ber­shop makes a point of ed­u­cat­ing its clients on how to style and groom their hair and beard at home be­tween reg­u­lar six-weekly ap­point­ments. The team can also ad­vise on which prod­ucts are most suit­able for dif­fer­ent hair types and styles. Fox and the Bar­ber uses an ex­ten­sive range of fine prod­ucts, in­clud­ing Hanz de Fuko and Beard­brand from the US, Mr. Natty from the UK, and Ac­qua di Parma, Sacha­juan and Reuzel from Europe.

They’re also aware that hu­mid­ity in Hong Kong can make keep­ing hair styled all day a chal­lenge. “At Fox and the Bar­ber, we use wa­ter-based prod­ucts dur­ing the sum­mer,” says owner PAUL. “Sea Salt Spray (Beard­brand) and Ocean Mist (Sacha­juan) are great when spritzed into hair be­fore blow-dry­ing – they cre­ate vol­ume and tex­ture with­out any sticky residue. In the Hong Kong heat, these prod­ucts give last­ing hold. When com­bined with a matte po­made (Mr. Natty Clay) for added tex­ture, it’ll give you the most cur­rent look from Lon­don.”
