HQ Barbershop: Quickest 10-Minute Quality Haircut for Men

HQ Barbershop: Quickest 10-Minute Quality Haircut for Men

 

When in Manila, stress is everywhere – on the crowded streets, jam-packed trains, the roaring vehicles and the system itself. If being stressed is manifested through the growth of one’s hair, plenty of us would probably look like Tarzan – with no choice but to keep going. For those who already feel like Tarzan in the metro, HQ Barbershop is here to rescue you from the forest of stress and the bush of hair.

HQ Barbershop is the premier quick-cut barbershop in the Philippines. It only has one branch in Manila so far, though: in SM North.

Despite being new in Manila, HQ Barbershop is already in its renaissance, offering men the highest quality of service through the utmost sanitation, augmenting customer experience through technology and saving time.

HQ Barbershop does not just boast of a 10-minute quick cut, but also of 4 easy steps, which fully realize a clean and professional one.

HQ Barbershop’s 4 easy steps.

 

STEP 1: PAY AND COLLECT TICKET

HQ Barbershop is indeed an innovator in the industry. Don’t be deceived by their name of being JUST a “barber shop” because they’re the “barber shop.”  In salons or other barbershop, I usually look for the cashier in to fall in line and tell them what haircut I want. But in HQ, there’s no cashier. Instead you will be welcomed by an ATM-like stand that you will be making your payment to and will be receiving your haircut ticket from. Cool, right?

This serves as their cashier.

STEP 2: WAIT FOR YOUR TURN 

While you wait for your turn for a haircut, you will not fail to notice some noteworthy things in HQ Barbershop.

The first thing that you might notice is the vacuum under the cabinets. It serves a special purpose of helping barbers clean their stations with ear No need to sweep the hair on the floor and throw it in a bin at this place! No need to just let it stay on the side until their shift ends, either!

Small vacuums are found under the cabinets to help clean the floor every after the barber cuts.

By the way, their cabinets serve as “desk” for barbers where all the things that they need are readily placed to save time. Customers can also place their things inside like “lockers” while they have their hair cut.

Every barber has their own cabinet to put all their things and for customers “locker” as well.

 
STEP 3: PROCEED TO BARBER’S STATION

I always thought that sanitation is just for clinics and hospitals, but HQ Barbershop proved me wrong. HQ Barbershop has been deeply committed to making sure that sanitation is number 1 on their checklist. They have a sterilizer where they place all their tools before being used by customers. This is another one of the things that you might notice once you proceed to the barber’s station.

STEP 4: BEGIN HAIRCUT

I always had the notion that getting a haircut entailed waiting for ample time for it to be done since you only get one 1-2 times a month. HQ Barbershop proves that proper grooming doesn’t have to take too much of your time, though. With their highly-trained barbers and noteworthy technology, a 10-minute haircut is completely possible with good quality and output to boot.

Only HQ Barbershop can promise this!

 
One must also look forward to the clean wash with the use of a vacuum. Yes, you read it right, VACUUM! Most of us perhaps are fond of being shampooed in salons after the haircut or just the usual brushing off the hair from our neck and shoulders. But HQ Barbershop, with their particularity with time without compromising quality, uses a vacuum to remove hair follicles faster and easier. It was actually the first time that my scalp was vacuumed! It’s very relaxing and novel.

Yes, that’s vacuum! I fell sleepy while Sir Ed was doing that.

More so, for those hygiene-particular men, you need not worry as their comb ratio is 1:1. You will get the comb after your haircut. After all, their clean standards are clean comb, clean hands, clan tools and clean wash.

Since you will save a lot of your time by going here for your haircut, you can spend a little more time in SM Annex eating sandwiches at Hoagies or fulfilling your sweet cravings for cakes at Tous Les Jours.
 
Anyway, HQ Barbershop renewed my notions about barber shops and how important time is for men particular with them. Now, there’s no need to wait for a long time just to get a haircut when in Manila. After all, there are plenty of things you might still want to do with your time. Fortunately, HQ Barbershop gives you your regular dose of a hair fix that fits right into your schedule. This, indeed, is great grooming for the modern man.
