Whether you get a line-up and a fade every week, or you go for a full head-and-beard haircut every month (or two or three), a trip to the barbershop is a vital part of your life.

Regular trips to the barbershop are essential if you want to stay looking fresh/avoid looking like a time-travelling caveman. And when you’re living in Vancouver, you can take your pick from a selection of top-tier barbershops.

Here’s a look at seven of the most notable spots to get your haircut in Vancouver.
