    Lightbulb Barber shops in the BeNeLux

    Hey everyone, I'm a noob

    I looked through the whole BNL forum and didn't manage to see any thread about barber shops where one can get a good shave. (Save for one posting about Amsterdam)

    I am based in Brussels and I'm always on the look out for barber shops that can give a shave. So far, I've only found one: Rodolphe Barber. I've never been there because it's on Avenue Louise and that means it is too expensive.

    So, I was thinking to start a thread about barber shops around BNL. If anyone knows of one, just post it here and then we can all benefit.

    The Bar Bier(sorry, no website) in Ghent also does them, I haven't had the opportunity to try them, but my brother said it was OK. However, when he went, the guy used a Feather, but they should do a proper straight shave about now. Also a good idea: Turkish barbers! (Shavettes all around, but it's still nice) Just look out you don't get a shave from a 14 year old kid who's learning the trade. I got into wetshaving after a shave from the Turkish barber. In Ghent, there are a lot of them in the Sleepstraat.

    Welkom bij " Den Barbier "

    I know the owner. I once visited him and helped him hone his razors. I tried to get him started with a norton, a coticule and a tony miller strop, but I think he switched to shavette blades. His problem imo was that he didn't shave himself with a straight, so he had no real way of evaluating his razors.
