Rusty Rascals, located in Hammarby Sjöstad and Norra Djurgårdsstaden, is the place for you if you want top-class treatments by skilled barbers who know their craft. Here you can fix your hairstyle – both short hair and long hair, trim the beard, or whatever you need to look good.
And in this combined barbershop, café, and bistro, you can not only get your beard trimmed or your hair styled but also enjoy good food and drink. Have a coffee while you wait for your turn, and then hang on after the haircut and revel in what many have described as the city’s best pizzas. Or stop by in the evening and have a beer or two with your best friend – even if the hairstyle feels good at the moment. Because of its great atmosphere and friendly staff, Rusty Rascals is much more than just a place you want to visit when your hair has become too long.

Today, the new owners have renovated but retained the premises’ classic feel of an oasis in Norrmalm, a stone’s throw from Stureplan. In this ‘home outside the home,’ they’ve been inspired by men’s salons in London and invest in feeling and quality in their shaves and haircuts. ‘He gets up from the chair and immediately longs to return’ is the feeling Mr. Nils himself wants to give you as a customer. And after a visit here, you understand exactly what he means.
