Adding to the growing list of tenants at APW is 52 Barbers, a barbershop specialising in men’s cuts and shaves. The compact space accommodates only two chairs, and is run by McBe (formerly of OTHRS barbers). Easily recognisable with its ceiling-to-floor windows and teal frames, the quaint shop is quite minimal by way of decor – exposed concrete flooring, walls with simple chalk drawing, and a phonograph tucked in a corner.
Services you can get here include shaves, beard trims and bespoke gentlemen cuts. The best part is, the haircuts are finished with a refreshing hot towel service. Prices start from RM60 for a bespoke gents cut (RM40 for kids aged five to 12), and shaves from RM20; a combination of a haircut and shave will cost you a minimum of RM85. Walk-ins are accepted, but it’s recommended that you book online beforehand.
