Features – Old business in Kota Kinabalu (Barber)


Barber shop at Gaya Street and Kampung Air

Nowadays almost everyone get their haircut at hair saloons. Some of us are too young to experience the old barber shops. These old barber shops normally offer shaving, massage and hair trimming services at affordable prices. I could still remember the uncle with his blade after he finishes trimming my hair, and the talcum power smell inside the shop. In Kota Kinabalu, I manage to find 2 barber shops offering the exact experiences at Gaya Street and Kampung Air. Once you step inside the shop, you will feel like stepping into a time machine and nothing has changed much; same smell, same chair and same scissor sound.
