Do you have the desire to get an old-fashioned shave? São Paulo is full of barbers specialized in beards, moustaches and also in manicures… or makeup.
Dodaidone, Rua Artur de Azevedo, Pinheiros
On the top floor of the concept store Cartell011 you will find the friendly and famous salon Paul Daidone – which, between us, often offers you a glass of champagne before they take care of you. The hairdresser designed the décor himself.

Retrô Hair, Rua Augusta, Bela Vista
The name already reveals what kind of place you will find yourself in. Retrô Hair is a beauty salon inspired by the 1950s and 60s. To give you an idea of the vintage décor, you will find an old car or a gramophone. Your haircut will follow the same theme. This salon is the first to have original decorations of rua Augusta.
Retrô Hair – Rua Augusta, 902
Salão Luxo, Ruas Aspicuelta, Vila Madalena
To continue with the retro vibe, let’s talk about Salão Luxo, situated on one of the main roads in Vila Madalena, rua Aspicuelta. Make no mistake: even with the ultra retro decoration, people who leave from here always have an ultra modern cut!
Salão Luxo – Rua Aspicuelta, 193
Circus Hair, Rua Pamplona, Jardim Paulista
Perhaps the most well known on the list, and it’s not for no reason. With two salons close to Paulista, one on rua Pamplona and the other on rua Augusta, Circus Hair has made its reputation. Fun and colorful décor and in addition, a playground to keep yourself busy instead of reading a Brazilian magazine.
The Barbearia 9 de Julho has 5 different locations in São Paulo and each one has the same style. All in black and white with posters of old pubs and old school bands: a little retro feeling, we really like it.
Barbearie 9 de Julho – Rua Augusta 1371, sala 05
Barbearia Cavalera, Rua Oscar Freira, Jardim Paulisa
Last August, Cavalera opened a barbershop inside his boutique on Oscar Freire. Inspired by the brand Alberto Hiar and the rapper Marinho, this little space only has 2 chairs and was inspired by the lifestyle in Los Angeles.
Barbearia Cavalera – Rua Oscar Freire, 1102
Berlin Hair, Rua Augusta, Bela Vista
Berlin Hair opened their doors in October 2013, and the new space on rua Augusta aims to unify art and beauty salons. We enjoy the mix of graffiti with the lodge mood/ small lights around the mirrors.
Berlin Hair – Rua Augusta, 2183
Liceu de Maquiagem, Rua Tinhorão, Higienópolis
A beauty salon and makeup school in an atypical location. Liceu attracts attention not only for it’s makeup classes and excellent service, but also for it’s décor which displays strange objects, like hand mirrors hung on the wall, contrasted with a modern and purist decoration.
