In search of a barber for African American hair in Basel


I am new to Basel, and I am searching for a barber to cut my hair. Iím really just looking for a fade on the sides and a nice edge up. I have seen posts regarding this in the past but they are a few years old and either the shops do not exist anymore or they have moved. If anyone has any advice on a barber that can cut black hair, it would be greatly appreciated!

You might want to check out Tropical Zone at Claraplatz. They are a Caribbean/African hair care store with a barber in the back

No barber recommendations from me as I live in Zurich, but how did the suggestion you got work out. I went to a Caribbean place to get my hair straightened and didn’t love the products used. Luckily, my husband knew a Swiss & African American stylist working in a regular shop. She does a great job.
