"BARBERING IS LIKE MAKING A SCULPTURE,  A BARBERSHOP IS LIKE A GALLERY."
 

Believing in this concept, Sculptor Barber was founded in central Taipei by Taiwanese contemporary artist Chou Shih Hsiung in 2014 as his first life-style business in his career. As the founder and creative director, Chou has directed this brand based on a life-style of a contemporary artist.  

Designed in the 80’s style of Asian apartment, the interior of the shop is renovated like a white cube with bright sunny daylight as a gallery space or a fine art studio. Performing the subtle changing of sun light in a day, experiencing the services here is like experiencing an art performance. "Sculpture your hair, sculpture your life style."

Being the leading men's barbershop in Taipei, Sculptor Barbering provides both classic and innovative barber services, including shampoo & haircut, stay handsome (straight razor shave), bread trim, hangover treatment, meeting service (quick tide-up) and free chat service.  

As the pioneer of establishing a barbershop to be more than a space of having barber services, Sculptor Barber creates contents in art, fashion and culture. Our barbers and friends are encouraged to host exhibition, pop-up events, parties and other creative careers in our space. "Friendly and Welcoming", the attitude is akin to that of an art parlour — a creative community hangout as in times past. It helps that shop, Sculptor Barber, is also a project space for hiring. 

Creating a new vision of this industry in Taiwan, In the beginning of 2016, we had this honour that Sculptor Barber had received the -Creative and Culture Awards- from our local government, and acclaimed as "Beauty changes life, the most beautiful men's barbershop in Taiwan.” - Wallpaper* Magazine.
