Top 3 Hair Salon to visit for the Modern Gentlemen
Updated: Mar 25, 2020
Most men would agree that finding the right hair stylist can be quite a task. It's crucial that your hair stylist understands your style and takes into consideration your face shape and aesthetic you are going for. After all, we all deserve to walk out a hair salon feeling confident, sleek and fresh.
Asking around for references may not always work as we all have different preferences. The best way to navigate around this is to pay a visit to the hair salon in person.
In this article, we introduce our top 3 favourite local gentlemen's barber shop for that sleek and clean cut you've always been wishing for. We share touching stories of their dreams and how they have persevered throughout the years to grow a name for themselves, and now have a huge loyal customer base here in Singapore.
Coming from a difficult background, Ameer, Founder & Co-Owner of Queenswealth has seen the dark side of life at a young age as people around him were involved in drugs, gangs & violence. People around him constantly looked down on him and friends alike.
Fortunately, he met a few neighbours and quickly realized how smart and talented these individuals were. However, due to the lack of opportunity and self-belief to pursue their goals and dreams, they never thought they stood a chance.
Ameer believed that in order to help his friends realize their own potential and self-worth, a sense community was needed. A group of people who help support each other and develop a “professional growth mindset” which instils confidence and self-belief; starting with a haircut. A community that believes that how you see yourself is more important than how others see you.
The psychological effect after a haircut on most parts has always been a positive one. Along with a group of friends living in the area of Commonwealth & Queenstown who want to serve a community, Queenswealth was born. Barbering became a platform to help build a community that encourages people to believe in themselves and know their self-worth. The barbers at Queenswealth want to let people know that with confidence, you can pursue your goals and dreams despite the lack of advantage or opportunity.
