Need to get a handle on your tache? One option is to trundle on down to N-Gents, the ‘modern barbershop’ opened by stylist Nabila’s son Zair Maqsood.

If your moustache has reached dali-esque lengths or you are battling a uni-brow, perhaps the new male grooming salon, N-Gents, can offer some assistance.

“We can suggest ways for the client to address factors that potentially limit the way they appear or feel,” they say euphemistically. The salon offers an extensive list of personal grooming services. It might be the place to go if you are a looks-savvy male who has made it over the ugly puberty hump.

Styling: Nabila

Wardrobe: F.A.D

Model: Wasim Akram

Location: N-Gents

Grooming: N-Gents

Haircuts start at Rs1,200 or perhaps you fancy an age-smart with eye treatment facial for those dark circles. Grooms can get a little buffing for their special day from Rs9,000 upwards. In this shoot, Nabila and Zair were inspired by the Victorian and Edwardian eras and spaghetti Westerns. But it was Quentin Tarantino’s Django that emboldened the model, Wasim Akram, to let the stylists experiment. If you aren’t feeling as adventurous, you can go for a simple shave or head massage in their luxurious setting replete with leather barbershop chairs. Oh, and full body waxes are priced at Rs2,500. Shame they won’t take women.
