Trimology is actually a chain of barber shops that are placed almost everywhere in Swansea! If you’re living in a student area such as Brynmill or Uplands, you’ll probably be going to the one on Brynymor road, which is pretty easy to walk to no matter where you are. These guys don’t just do haircuts, as they also do shaves, waxing, threading, and facial treatments as well. Your average haircut will cost you between £15 and £20, but check out their website to see their full pricing list.

Probably my favourite named barbers on this list is Ace of Fades. This place has over 200 good reviews on Google, which speaks for itself really. They’re located right next to the city centre, so it’s super easy to get to, and as they do walk-ins, you can pop in whenever you’re nearby! Although this place is good, it is on the more expensive side, as their average haircut costs around £20. They do offer loads of services though, such as threading, beard dye, braids, and a hot towel shave. Take a look at their website to see everything they have to offer!
