Grooming guide: 13 Barbershops to go to for a clean cut and shave in time for Raya

Looking scruffy as of late? We get it—with Ramadan in full swing and a pandemic (though, hopefully, it’s soon-to-be an endemic) ongoing, the times have not been easy on most. That said, while a daily grooming routine may not be a top priority on your list, getting cleaned up for Raya is probably a good idea.

Getting groomed up doesn’t even have to be a laborious chore, either. In fact, if you look at it as an opportunity to treat yourself, it’s an excellent way to wind down and get some me-time in before Eid kicks in.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best barbershops to get your pre-Raya grooming rituals sorted:
