Malay Barbers in Singapore
Malay barbers are a common sight in the heartlands.
Why are they different? Their services are more personalised. These artisans know their customers well. You get the same barber every single time.
In the past, roadside barbers were commonly found along Singapore's streets. These old barbershops merely have tarpaulin canopies for roofs, not air-conditioning, and with small plastic chairs for the customers.

The old roadside barbers also cleaned ears! Using a five-centimetre-long metal ear cleaner that had a hook at one end, they fished out ear wax from the customers' ears.
