Nestled within the neighbourhood of Yio Chu Kang is a humble barbershop by the name of Autocutt – which was also recently featured on Singtel’s Jia Le channel. The 3-year-old barbershop also produced the award-winning pomade brand, O’Boy. Autocutt often brings their services out of the little storefront as they set up pop-up makeshift barbershops at the back of their vintage Kombi vans. As the barbershop is small, appointments are highly encouraged since the barbershop can only service one patron at once.
