Doc’s (formerly Doc Guthrie’s) is a barber shop that specializes in short hair cuts — fades, pompadours, mullets — and professional beard shaves and trims. Opened in 2015, Doc’s was the very first vintage-inspired barbershop in China and is still at the head of the pack for front-of-house service and talent with the trimmers. They staff a tight crew of master and junior barbers available by direct appointment through their WeChat mini program, and overall, you can expect a chill, community sort of feel when stopping by for a trim. Haircuts come with a complimentary beer or whiskey. For booking, search for the mini program “DocsBarberShop” in WeChat, or call direct. English and Chinese-language service available. Two locations in Shanghai. Keep an eye out for their art exhibitions and laidback community events.
