‘Support Small Businesses’ Support Pours In For Street Barber Shop In Posh South Delhi Locality

In India, street barber shops are the cool hangout spots where all the buzz happens. These places, nestled in various corners of different neighbourhoods in the country, offer services for a steal price in an economy where salons charge anywhere between Rs 500 to Rs 2000. And if you are lucky, they will throw in an extra head massage too! And the fun fact is that they are in tune with the times and follow the latest trends.

A digital marketer named Subho Sengupta took to X (formerly Twitter) to share the story of Rohtas Singh, a street barber who offers his services for as low as Rs 50 in a posh South Delhi neighbourhood. His competitors are Tony & Guy, Truefitt & Hill and other similar salons that charge a hefty amount for their services.

“I have been to all places and can tell you with authority they all offer the same quality. Support small entrepreneurs, they may not be CEOs on LinkedIn, but they are the ones who pull the economy up,” he wrote.

Have a look at his post here:

While there were many people who didn’t approve of street barber shops because they felt like they were illegally occupying public space and not paying taxes, several others came to his support. It was highlighted that, unlike big salons, small barber shops are run by people who are in desperate need of money and we must stand by small businesses because they are the backbone of our economy.

These people are like the heart and soul of Indian life, where every snip has a tale to tell! 🙂
