Making the cut: The best Abu Dhabi

It’s 2020, and men’s grooming matters…

Whether you’re going for a full reboot or a little off the top, whether it’s your beard, barnet or nose hair that’s for the chop, you want to know your ‘look’ is in good hands.

Stay sharp, with our look at some of the best Abu Dhabi barbershops.


Local isn’t just your local neighbourhood barbershop. It offers fresh fades, fresh kicks and freshly ground coffee. It’s a community. This super-trendy chop shop wears its street style all over the walls – find skate paraphernalia, limited-edition urban fashion pieces and arty little nick-nacks dotted all over the place. Haircuts start at around Dhs110 for a basic back and sides, and beard trims begin at Dhs60. Like the speciality coffee that is served in-house, the products used in the styling are all top-quality brands. The barber team includes Connor, Alex, Chrissy and Fazz, but as true masters of their art, their peak slots get booked up weeks in advance.

Local, Al Zeina Complex, Block C, Abu Dhabi, Sun to Thur 11am to 9pm (closed Mon), Fri to Sat 8am to 10pm. Tel: (02) 5553339.
