Rusty Rascals

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.

Lazy Barber

Lazy Barber is located in Kungsholmen, close to Lilla Essingen. And entering this place is like stepping into an American barbershop in the 1950s. The retro vibes are strong in everything from interior design to grooming products. The barbers taking care of you in this old-school shop have many years of experience in the profession. The owner himself has been around the longest and can be proud of over 40 years in the industry. The focus is on service and care – and the fact that some customers have cut their hair here for 30 years proves they’re satisfied. Whether it’s beard, hair, trimming, or grooming on the schedule, you can count on the highest quality – all while enjoying a coffee and bun from the coffee bar.

Barber & Books

Barbers and books – is that a good combination? Yes, in fact a perfect one. Barber & Books is another good barber in Södermalm. Since 2007 they’ve gathered fine photo books and handsome men in their premises on Östgötagatan to create a total experience. The inspiration comes from Harlem, New York. The salon offers haircuts and shaving with massages and warm towels. With barbers in white coats who in a classic spirit take care of you in a 20s-inspired environment, you could easily relax and dream away.

Honest Al’s

This place is a lot of punk. That’s right, punk. Honest Al’s is run by the former punk rocker and very experienced Al together with his team. You’ll find his barbershop in Södermalm and Mariatorget, and with humor, quality and service, it has become very popular over the years. ‘Not your average barbershop,’ as they describe it themselves. You can buy grooming products that keep your hair and beard in good condition in both the store and on the website. You can also grab some merchandise.
Wollmar Yxkullsgatan 9, Södermalm

Mr Nils

We end the list with a true classic – in a new modern style. Today, this historic hair salon is called Mr Nils, but in the same premises, located in the middle of central Stockholm, this men’s hairdresser has been taking care of men who want to look good in their hair since 1885. This makes it one of Stockholm’s oldest addresses for male grooming. The salon’s previous owner Gunther Panzel took over the premises in 1971 and then established G.H. Herrsalong. It was then taken over by another owner who ran it until the beginning of 2021.

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.
