Just outside the chaos of the old town, there is The Barber Shop Salon of Corrado Polistena. Like no other, this barber of Sicilian origins with more than forty years of experience is able to tame and shape your style with great elegance.

QUADRILATERO DELLA MODA | ANTICA BARBIERIA COLLA – Via Gerolamo Morone, 3
At the center of the Quadrilatero, just above La Scala and a few minutes walk south from Brera, between San Babila and Cairoli, the Antica Barbieria Colla has been standing for something like a hundred and thirty years. It’s seen some eminent men pass by its mirrored galleries: from Gabriele D’Annunzio to Luigi Pirandello, even Indro Montanelli. A piece of history.
ISOLA | BULLFROG – Modern Electric Barber – Via Thaon di Revel, 3
Discreetly located, like a true speakeasy from the good old days, in the courtyard of a newborn Isola area, this little gem is already a cult. When you enter, it feels like being in the America’s roaring twenties. The walls are decorated with butterflies and vintage graphics and a strong rockabilly vibe dominates every inch.
For the area of Ticinese and Darsena, we just have to go for Francesco Cirignotta, whose shop is not just a shaving service but nothing less than a personal grooming studio, where hair care approach is similar to high tailoring. Modern elegance and attention to detail.
MOSCOVA | OIR BARBER SHOP – Via Alessandro Volta, 8
This barber shop in Moscova has youthful and relaxed mood with a team of professionals where each is specialized in his own style – the atmosphere is closer to an old school Irish pub than a dressed and buttoned up barber.
