One of the oldest barbershops in Malolos is Society Barbershop. It was started in the mid-1960s by Mr. Benjamin Perez, and is now being managed by his son, Mr. Abner Perez. On its second generation, it is still popular among students and young professionals who want to have a decent haircut without spending too much. It is located in the heart of the city – along F. Estrella St., beside the Malolos Cathedral, (also known as Minor Basilica of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception).
Its hand-painted signage and old-fashioned interiors are living testaments that this place has been here for ages. They still use old-school barbershop chairs with matching (slightly deteriorated) panel mirrors. Each barber has their own set of sharp scissors, barber’s cape, Good Morning towels, and the traditional ‘labaha’ or razor, which your lolo used to trim his beard.
