It can be pretty hard to find a seat in Lukkas Barbers, an old-school barbershop that is bringing a sense of community back to North Signal Village. Inside, everything is black and white, save for a shelf that carries colorful Japanese action figures.

“We named the shop Lukkas because it felt tough and masculine,” shared owner Alma Landong. Our goal is to make you ‘feel good, look good’.”

Since it opened two years ago along MRT Avenue, this barbershop has become a “guys’ hangout”, supported by a consistent customer base and friendly barbers. “Ordinary barbershops cannot give customers the type of haircuts that we do. In addition, we offer grooming services, and that’s why our clients keep coming back,” Landong added.

Their dapper signature haircuts include the pompadour, quiff, and other combinations of classic and contemporary styles. Smiling barbers donning 1920s get-ups would welcome their patrons. This shows how Lukkas Barbers goes beyond the desired haircut by giving them an experience.

“We wanted to create a place for the barbershop within the community, so that customers won’t have to go to the mall or wait for mall hours before getting a haircut,” Landong explained.

Their popularity is growing. Customers from neighboring areas like Quezon City, Pasay and Pasig go out of their way to visit. They’ve also recently opened a new branch in Paco, Manila where they hope to duplicate their success.

For those who are looking for both old-fashioned haircuts and hipster chic haircuts, visit Lukkas Barbers and enjoy top service.
