In no other city in Italy, and I believe in the rest of the world – with the exception perhaps of NYC – are men as attentive to their looks and shape as they are in Milan
Barbershops keep on growing, together with specialized fitness centers and beauty boutique for an all-male public.
Hipsters in suit and tie, bankers running in the morning through the Montanelli gardens after a session with their Virgin Active personal trainer, boho chic academics having their beard and hair manically taken care of at the Tonsor Club in Via Palermo.
I have picked the best of the best for you. Follow me…
To get an appointment in this Gentleman club, apparently, it takes a month. The salon has a 1930s glow and only organic products are used.
Rather than a barbershop, this is an exclusive club, where every person can express their identity through a custom-made look: class will out and everything recalls the luxury of an ancient ritual to discover.

The perfect place for those looking for the coolest haircut or shave.
It offers a wellbeing experience across the board, where you may relax and feel at home, with antique furniture and the expert care of modern metropolitan barbers, and 10 different styles of beards on the Bullfrog menu.
A no-miss: the 7 hot towels treatment, a traditional north-American shave closed with an ice-cold towel and cologne.
On Sundays, you’ll find a shoeshine too.
