A cut above the rest, Chop Shop reinvents the barbershop in Kochi
It’s no secret there is a lack of emphasis on men’s self-care in India. For decades grooming was associated exclusively with a female audience, leaving men unceremoniously sentenced to the dilapidated corner cut and shave. No wonder entire generations of men of the country still sport between one of five outdated hairstyles. In good news, this demise for men is no longer with a new player entering this space, looking to bridge the gap and cater to the needs of the modern Indian man. Chop Shop Barber & Brand promises to bring the spotlight back onto men’s grooming by delivering exceptional service in an outfit designed to celebrate men.
Famed South playback singer Vijay Yesudas partnered with the Canadian-owned brand and has introduced it to his home turf in Kochi. Happy to come on board, Vijay Yesudas says, “It’s a new field to get into and I’m super excited how the place has turned out and how it’s going to really give a different kind of experience to all the men in Kochi and even those Flying in and out of Kochi”.
Since its opening, the premium New York styled barbershop, is flooded with appointments for its exquisite list of services that includes hairstyling, beard care, facials, and a pick of relaxing massages. Soon also launching their spa services and mani-pedi stations, Chop Shop wants men to experience real pampering in a shared space of belonging. Capturing the raw urban feel of what it is to be a man in this fast-cosmopolitan world, Chop Shop greets you with warm comfort as you step through its doors. With its raw wooden interiors accented by leather trimmings and a showcase of love for motorcycle culture, it promises to be an oasis for men in the heart of bustling Kochi.
Overwhelmed with the response garnered in the initial days of it’s opening, partners Vijay Moolan, Anas Nasir too expressed their thoughts.
Vijay Moolan says, “A perfect place for me to get pampered with well-priced services in a hip setup. The concept of chop shop goes in sync with my love for bikes, blades and beards. I can’t wait for men in Kochi to experience the vibe at Chop Shop and meet all our awesome barbers”.
Anas Nasir says, “Bringing an old school New York style barber shop back into trend with international premium grooming services provided right here in Kochi, excites me and I can confidently say am looking forward to spreading the Chop Shop experience from one city to another. I like to venture into new businesses and Chop Shop aligned with my core beliefs and one where I could learn and grow more in this exciting industry.”
