Local Life, Goa: 36 reviews and 53 photos


All over Goa you will find 'local' barbers...and they are really worth checking out. A shave will cost about 25 rps (about 35p) and you'll never have a closer one! First they foam you up the old fashioned way, then they take a cut throat razor and give you a really good shave, pinching your skin to get it taught. It feels wonderful...and just as you think they have finished...they shave you all over again! Then various astringents are massaged into your face...and then finally cologne...wonderful!
