A traditional men-only barbershop specialising in classic haircuts based on styles from the 1920s through to the '50s, Figaro's fabulous interior is reason enough to drop by this charming Lisbon anomaly. Designed around vintage furniture and equipped with original Koken barber chairs, including a rare example believed to date from the mid-1920s, the salon is as near to anything you'll find in USA – the décor oozes genuine Americana and Stateside atmosphere. Depending on hair type, customers can request a range of cuts – the "timeless" executive contour is a favourite. Other options include Teddy boy, low faded slickback, psychobilly quiff and their very own Lisbon playboy. Figaro's can also offer hot towel straight razor shaves. No appointments are necessary; you just walk in and wait your turn. While doing so, customers can enjoy a cold beer and admire the period memorabilia. Meanwhile, a rockabilly country western soundtrack keeps toes tapping in anticipation.

- Recommended as Best Attractions & Activities Because: Authentic American-style barbershop specialising in classic 1920-1950 haircuts, Figaro's in quite unique in Lisbon for vintage atmosphere and carefully trained scissor-hands.
