Treat Dad to a designer trim at the barbershop
Some favourites that elevate getting a trim to a special occasion include the retro-cool Bespoken Man at The Bank in Rosebank and the Sandton Gautrain Station (they've also got a great whisky selection) and Bar Ber Black Sheep's bar/barbershop on Parkwood's buzzing Park Corner on Bolton Road. For some serious grooming Rockets Man (branches in Fourways, Rosebank and Sandton) "put the Man in manicures" and also offer hair and beard colouring, eyebrow threading and tinting, facials and other treatments as well as "haircuts for little rockstars" if you want to make it a father-son outing. For the coolest beard and head shaves you can't beat the barbershop chain with a cult following, Legends Barber, the barbershop of choice for South Africa's hip hop greats. Find them countrywide.
