Beauty services like makeup are an additional bonus offered. Hair services are also on their catalogue, from braiding, haircuts, dreadlocks and hair tinting.
The Lune barber shop is a men’s grooming parlour that seeks to debunk the myth that men hardly need such services, hence they offer hair servicing and skincare as well.
