Unison Barber Dubai first opened its doors in late 2018. Named ‘Unison’ to symbolise the mutual and harmonious agreement between a barber and a client, this homegrown gem is located in the heart of Jumeirah.
Tucked away inside the Palm Strip Mall on Jumeirah Beach Road, Unison is the brainchild of a group of young expats who wanted to offer something different to Dubai’s barbershop scene. The vibes are chilled and cool and the interiors are urban with a cosy touch – think concrete walls juxtaposed with light wood and relaxing green foliage. The music is curated and features a “continuous loop of funk, soul and rare grooves” to get your toes tapping whilst you indulge in a little R&R.
When The Huntr visited, the barber team encompassed three gentlemen all with different nationalities. The services on offer include traditional cuts, beard trims and straight razor shaves.
Understated and yet luxurious, Unison Barber also uses (and sells) some of the slickest men’s beauty products on the market including colourant, mineral oil, silicone, parabens and pearlising agent-free beauty brands Aesop, Grown Alchemist and Sacha Juan. The prices range from 40AED for a wash and style up to 140AED for a haircut and shave. Kid’s cuts are available for 65AED and an Afro Cut is priced at 90AED.
Insider tips: Open daily from 10am until 10pm. Clients get a free speciality coffee from the nearby concept Amongst Few for any treatment purchased at Unison Barber.
