How to get a Haircut in Malta

Well this one depends on your hair, and how much thought you give to it.

I'm a short-back-and-sides get-it-done sort of a chap, so bear that in mind when I recommend Franks shop in Sliema.  This is the conversation when I get my hair cut there

Frank*: (nods greeting)
Me:       "Hello". (sits on chair, no other customers yet)
Frank:   "Short?"
Me:       "Yeah, blade three back and sides, short on top"
Frank:    "..."
Me & Frank:  "..."

(10 minutes later)

Frank:  "How's that?" (displays back of my head in mirror)
Me:  "That's great.  Thanks."

(I pay €8 and indicate satisfaction via nod and half-smile)
This is my kind of hair cutting transaction.  If you prefer something a little more touchy-feely and questions about your holiday, try somewhere else.

Find them at 99a, Triq il-Lunzjata, Sliema

*may not be Actual Frank, I didn't get his name.


  1. Hi,
    I just went there. Finally, after third try of a new barber, there's someone who has his hands growing from the right place :). Got a short haircut, blade two sides and back, top tapering up a little; nothing fancy, but perfect for me. Cheers.

  2. Going to look it up. Live in sliema, just moved 2 months ago. definitely going to visit. How are the prices on haircuts tho?

  3. Hi, I really like your article. I will keep coming here, Thanks
