The Lobby Hair Shop in the Woodstock Foundry on Albert Road is Cape Town’s newest barbershop. The culmination of coiffeur Craig Johns’s ambition to have his own classic barbery – complete with old-style extra-comfy chairs – is a slow-paced community space, and a monument to great taste in décor, typography, music and, of course, well-priced classic cuts.
Craig isn’t busy now, but judging by the quality of his work and conversation, he will be soon. Head in for a great cut without the salon fuss (men and women are both welcome) a good chat and - perhaps best of all - a cold Tafel Lager while you wait.
The Lobby Hair Shop is at 160 Albert Road, Woodstock. Call 021 825 3714 for reservations.
