    The new Siam

    Guru, Published on 18/07/2014

    The latest cut

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 27/09/2013

    » A place that only old men frequent and kids dread embarrassing crew cuts, old-school barber shops have been marginalised in the lifestyle hierarchy since lot of men, especially the metrosexual generation, have opted for unisex salons where speed and fashion meet.
