Bayer & Bayer
Beauty & Spa
The Bayer & Bayer barbershop in the Sablon, in the heart of Brussels, heralds a trend which is gradually spreading across Northern Europe: the advent of a new generation of “barbershops”. The idea grew slowly: Nicolas Bayer wanted to revive the tradition of the craft of beard and moustache shaves and treatments, performed by an old-school master-barber.
The shop is located in a beautiful mansion, which used to house a perfume shop. At the entrance, there is a vintage bar where visitors can enjoy a glass of whisky or wine, a cup of coffee or tea. This cosy space flows into a very British saloon, where sixties furniture (including mythical Belmont chairs), a collection of old razors, and photographs of bearded stars sit side by side. The result is an elegant but relaxed atmosphere where men can come and take the pressure off from their busy daily routines. Moreover, Bayer & Bayer doesn’t simply shave moustaches and beards: visitors can choose from a range of further treatments.
The success of the new generation of barbershops also has to do with the comeback of trimmed beards and moustaches. An estimated 40% of men have a styled beard or moustache:
a thin moustache, a goatee or a seemingly casual beard are all ways to express personalities. A
growing number of men come to specialists to do this for them.
There are several treatments on the ‘menu’: Air Cut (wash, cut and bar service), Shaving,
Cut & Shaving, Buzz Cut (cut with electric razor, wash, warm towel, bar service) Blow Dry (shape, gel wax), aside from all possible cut and trim shapes and also beard, moustache and goatee dye treatments.
