Really enjoyed this barbershop experience. It is a man cave escape in the middle of a crazy city! Welcomed with a cold Heineken and left with an awesome haircut! Wish I lived in this city so I could be a regular., – Andrew Perks, Dec. 2017 –

“Really great barbershop and a good experience! When you enter you are greeted by a nice and warm vibe, and it instantly reminded me of Amsterdam. The staff is very nice and welcoming. The haircut was done very proper and they spare no effort in making you look good…” – Jory van Dorp, Mar. 2018 –
“Wow! First visit and what an experience, without a doubt the best haircut i’ve ever had. In Liverpool i pay £28 for a haircut in an apparently “high end” barber shop and the cut has never come close to being as good as that which i received in House of Barbaard. Friendly & professional staff, awesome decor and really clean,,,,” – Anthony Didsbury, Apr. 2018 –
“I was craving for a fresh haircut during my last few days in Vietnam and stumbled upon this barbershop. Even after browsing through their website and reviews, I still found myself surprised by the interior, the friendly staff and the amazing service..” – Hoang Wardojo, Jul. 2018 –
Best barber experience I had in my life. Not even back home in Germany I had a barber like this. Starting with a smoke and a quick chat, followed by a coffee and a talk about the style I want. After that he really took his time and I had the impression for the whole time he really wants to make my hair look lit! The whole package was reasonable priced…” – Miguel Mellado, Jun. 2017 –
We Proudly present you
The true artists of House of Barbaard
Our barbers are proud to be part of House of Barbaard and this is something that you might possibly directly sense when stepping into our barber shop. A professional yet fun and personal atmosphere will be welcoming you. What our barbers have in common is that we all share the same passion for barbering and Gentleman’s lifestyle but also proud ourselves for our easy-going attitudes. Hence our slogan, for Gentleman with Attitude.
All our barbers have been taught by Dutch master barbers and completed our own training program of 6 months. House of Barbaard is proud to offer Vietnam’s only barber education.
Mr. Quan Anh
Every barber at House of Barbaard has a unique style. Hung has always desired to be different, whether it’s fashion, lifestyle or grooming he knows about it.
There was a time he fell in love with painting and learned how to draw by gradually picking up some basic skills and techniques about how to hold and control a brush. The same happened with his interest in barber arts, it gradually developed from interest, to passion, and ultimately in to his way of life.
Hung started with essential steps until he reached the higher levels after finishing his six months of training at House of Barbaard. The motto Hung has been living by for years: “Whatever you do, put all of your effort and spirit into it”.
Rewind to 4 years back, you could have already seen Qui doing some magic with his hands, however not with the scissors but a… DJ mixer. At the time, our Artist was still hopping between bars following his DJ-ing career. After going back to his hometown in Tien Giang, he worked in a hair salon as a hair stylist assistant. But Qui didn’t find his passion for working with women’s hair.
One day he came across a House of Barbaard video, following his instinct, Qui made his friends the ‘guinea pigs’ for him to practice the same haircut on. Also hair styling, but these classic men hairstyles somehow excites him so much more.
To Qui, being able to hold the scissors in his hands every day is what makes him happy. You will see him walking inside the barbershop always with a smile on his face.
“Music gives wings to the mind while a nice haircut gives you confidence, and these things will help you go further in life”.
We call Tai the Judge due to his strong personality. With Tai, the most important thing in life is knowing what’s right or wrong, and making the right choices. He used to work as a quality controller for an importing company.
Hair and beard styling was only a hobby to Tai in the past. But since he heard about House of Barbaard, he started thinking about turning this hobby into a real passion, also a job that he can live off, because why not?
What motivates Tai the most when being a barber, is the chance to make the customer satisfied with their look. A nice haircut can make a huge difference and can even help to make one more confident. This is also what makes Tai believe that he had made the RIGHT choice.
Mr. Sjoerd started his humble barbering adventure during a festival in the city of Amsterdam back in summer 2015. While being inspired by the bustling crowds and happy melodies, a small barbershop situated in the corner of the festival caught his eyes and grabbed his attention. Immediately, he was intrigued by the great vibes, the easy-going yet classy style, and the 1920’s music. This experience left him thinking and caused, what some would call “A Butterfly Effect”. Back at home, still energized by the excitement and curiosity that this festival Barbershop gave him, Sjoerd knew that the experience he had at the festival would change his life.
From that moment, he was determined to steer his career in a whole new direction by joining one of Holland’s most prestigious barber schools (the same place that gave birth to some of the most notorious barbers of the world, take Leen and Bertus of Schorem as examples). Before coming to Vietnam and joining House of Barbaard, Sjoerd was a member of The Barberstation crew, a well-known barbershop from The Netherlands where Sjoerd worked with much proud and learned from some of the world’s top barbers that work there.

Nemo is a character in a movie called Mr. Nobody (2009), a person who always had to makes a lot of difficult decisions in each critical junctions of his life, because “as long as you don’t choose, everything remains possible”. And Mr. Hiep strongly felt related to him. In a way, Nemo’s life is somewhat similar to what this gentleman has been through.
Bold – perhaps this might be the best word when talking about Hiep. Having calm adolescence throughout the years in senior high school until when he started his journey of 5 years studying abroad in Russia. The plan was to become a petroleum engineer, a desirable occupation and the golden dream of many people. But that was never enough for Hiep, as a free spirit, his mind always seeks to learn and explore new things. And that creates an incentive for Hiep to engage in many different freelance job likes photography, filmmaking, design… When was in Russia, Hiep had a barber corner in his flat to do haircut for his friends in University. Turning the most unruly hairs into an art, barbering has slowly become an undeniable passion for this gentleman.
With his boldness, he made a decision to stop studying for the master degree in Russia and pursuing barbering instead. And since the first time been back to Vietnam, Hiep felt that he wanted to became a part of the Barbaard family. The name Nemo can also be familiar with the animation Finding Nemo. Nemo because of living with his overprotective father, decided to take the risk by going out of his comfort zone to explore the large ocean. Never regret about his decisions, welcome to the Barbaard family, Nemo!
If you are one the guests that have been with House of Barbaard Hanoi since the beginning, you might think that there is something familiar about this guy, as Tuan used to be the one who takes care of your bikes during your visit.
Working as the parking guy for roughly a year, Tuan had observed the difference in the appearance of the visiting gentlemen before and after leaving House of Barbaard. What impressed him the most was how satisfied the guests were and how only a haircut could bring some joy, hence his dream of becoming a barber began.
Soon his wish came true, Tuan confidently applied for a trainee position when he heard House of Barbaard was looking for new barbers. And so we had another interview with Tuan, a long conversation that led to a new big step in his career. Finally, with his great passion and determination, plus 6 months of extensive training, Tuan is now one of House of
Mr. Quan Anh
“Don’t expect your barber to be a magician” – that’s something you always hear. But there seems to be an exception with Mr. Quan Anh.
“Magic and cutting hair are both arts,” he said. “You amaze the audience with your hands, as a magician would do. I invent my own cuts, according to a gentleman’s bone structure, and I invent my own scissors moves.” And the results? All you can say is “Wow, how wonderful they are!”
Abracadabra! Gentlemen, we present you Mr. Quan Anh – The Magician of House of Barbaard!
A barber with a student look.
Mr Kiss, came in contact with men’s grooming on an early age. His childhood was filled with sounds of scissors and conversations between his dad and customers. Growing up along the cutting tools and instructions given by his dad strengthened his passion for being a barber day by day.
He then was trusted to cut his father’s regular customers, and his friends, sometimes even walk in customers. However, he realized something was still missing and he was determined to keep improving his skills. One day, the door at House of Barbaard opened and Cong eventually found out that the world – class barbering culture is exactly what he is searching for.
If you have to choose two words to describe this guy; “enthusiastic” and “eager” would be the best.
The comedian – that’s another nickname this guy goes by.
His sense of humor is always an integral part in every party at House of Barbaard. Having worked and studied in Germany for quite some time gave Vu the chance to know more about Europe as well as immerse himself into its lifestyle and culture. He found his passion for the barber arts in the city of Hannover. The noisy classic atmosphere, the sound of scissors clicking inside the nearby barbershops attracted him every day on the way from and to his university.
Vu had an incredible backbone and managed to turn his passion into his profession by learning the basic skills bit by bit, all by himself. His dream eventually came true as he made his return to Vietnam to join House of Barbaard and keep developing his “Zero to Hero” story.
Vu’s humor and charm will be the first things you notice when sitting down in his chair. His endless stories about fashion and lifestyle will make your experience at House of Barbaard unforgettable.
A very special member of the Barbaard team: Dung. His smooth life in Da Nang – the best city to live in Vietnam – didn’t provide him with enough of a challenge. Challenges are what he’s looking for, he certainly won’t settle for boring. One of the biggest challenges he’s faced is moving to Hanoi and joining the House of Barbaard team.
The nickname “Mr. Perfect” doesn’t talk about his ego or pride, it’s meant as an expression of his obsession with perfection. His sharp eye for detail allows him to finish every job in a complete way. His free time he spends practicing, practicing and practicing to strengthen his skills. So, don’t be worried about the end-result of you barber service as Mr. Perfect will take extraordinary care of you.
There’s something that you should know, in Vietnam, barbering is not a job that most parents support. Linh’s family were quite worried when he told them he was going to pursue his dream to become a barber. However, when they came to take a look at House of Barbaard and saw how the whole team worked together and took care of one another…they completely changed their minds.
Linh, born with a taste of art, which is an absolute advantage when it comes down to being a barber. His creativeness resonates through everything he does, whether it’s making a latte (including foam art) or wrapping a gift, Linh’s the kind of guy that puts heart into every single thing he does.
And why “Mr. Grey”? That’s just how we get impressed with the guy who is full of energy during the first interview, and he was all in grey. That’s it.
Take a look at his appearance and you will understand why we nick-named him “The Sailor”. Also, his character perfectly matches the name: open-minded, generous and always the optimist just like a sailor.
Phong accidentally watched a short video made by Schorem, then quickly became interested in the barbering and finally developed a deep passion for it. He takes advantage of any chance he gets to practice, even… his friends their hair! His biggest dream? Join the best barber team in Vietnam.
It has been a tough time for our sailor to overcome the objection from his family, but in the end, his passion and determination have convinced them all. The Sailor has made the right turn: Being a barber at House of Barbaard.
The story about love for scissors keeps on going. Tuan is probably the luckiest guy amongst the entire team; he ran his own mini-shop since high school to foster his desire.
As balanced as he is, he perfectly fits into the Barbaard family. Not only because he has a creative mind and eye for hairstyles, he also puts a lot of time in roaming and traveling, for one purpose only; holding the scissors. Occasionally Tuan spends his spare time cutting hair for orphans.
This guy is one of the most interesting pieces in the picture of the whole Barbaard family. Pure and saintly, Tuan – “The Saint” is ready to write his amazing story at our barbershop.
