Kapampangans are known for being vain. As the old saying goes “Kuldas yang danupan ing Kapampangan, e ya sa matsura malan” (Kapampangans would rather go hungry than wear ugly clothes). This vanity is evident in women and men alike. This is the reason why mid to high-end barbershops are sprouting all over the province.
Planning to get a new haircut this new year? Here are five barbershops you can visit to achieve that slick look.
Claro M. Recto, Angeles City
Established in 2014, Pomade Cartel claims to be the first pomade and hair grooming one-stop-shop in the country. Owned by Gum Cruz, a trendsetter in the barbering world, this barbershop is a go-to if you’re into creative cuts like fades, crops, and mullets. A cut costs P250 to P300, but if you want Gum Cruz to groom you, prepare at least P400.
