A Truefitt & Hill barbershop will offer high-end cuts and shaves at the Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, which enjoys an exclusive address on Rajadamri Road in the heart of Bangkok.

Established in 1805, Truefitt & Hill is the oldest surviving barbershop in the world, as certified by Guinness Book of World Records, and is recognised as the finest traditional gentlemen’s barber and perfumer in London. The company is famous for its close shaves, expert haircuts and attentive grooming, according to a Tuesday release.

At Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, Truefitt & Hill offers all its celebrated grooming services, including the 45-minute “royal” hair cut, 20-minute beard trim and 30-minute head shave which uses a badger hair bristle brush to lift the hair for the closest possible shave.

Bangkok’s socialite gentlemen can delight in expert personal grooming sessions that include facial hair grooming, a 20-minute waxing of the ears, nose, eyebrows and cheeks, and a ear-cleaning done in the traditional Chinese-Thai style.

For a close shave, the 30-minute traditional hot towel wet shave uses pre-shave oil applied with a luxurious hot towel wrap, followed by a rich shaving cream and finished with a comfortable shave.

The 45-minute ultimate shaving experience offers all the pleasures of the traditional hot towel wet shave, along with a deep relaxing face massage.

Commenting on the opening of Truefitt & Hill at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel, Daniel Simon, the hotel’s general manager, said that the values and service standards of the world’s oldest barbershop perfectly fit that of Anantara’s flagship Thai hotel to create intimate customer relationships. “We are delighted to welcome Truefitt & Hill to one of Bangkok’s most exclusive addresses and to offer our guests and patrons more world-class services”, Simon said.

Truefitt & Hill at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel is open every day, from 9am to 7pm.
