"Le Salon des Navigateurs" Le Havre Things to Do Tip by aemilys

Le Havre Things to Do: 8 reviews and 12 photos

Five stars to this excellent place and it gets my vote for the world's neatest barbershop (I'm just so sad I lost my pictures). Mr. Daniel Le Compte has transformed his barbershop into a veritable museum of hairdressing and sailing history. He and his wife are very welcoming and will actually take time out to show you around and it's free! They have been in the area for years (since 1958 if I remember correctly) and are very knowledgeable about the history of Le Havre. They will give you all sorts of good advice on where to go and what to see. Also, Mrs. Le Compte's aunt married a GI and so she has family in the US!

Of course if you want a haircut (men only) you will have to pay but I cannot imagine that you would be disappointed. I actually saw a satisified customer who looked very handsome indeed.
