Books and beard? Yes, Barber & Books stood out from the beginning.
Since 2007 the most beautiful photo books and the sharpest looking men have gathered in our little shop on Östgötagatan, Södermalm in Stockholm. Seven years later we launched our own line of products, developed by our own experienced barbers together with the best chemists of the field. All products are made in Sweden from natural and high-performing ingredients.


We who run Barber & Books are Håkan and Catarina Ström. After a trip to NY and a meeting with a small barbershop / bookstore in Harlem the idea grew to create a similar concept in Stockholm. Håkan, with over 30 years of experience, a craftmanship's diploma as hairdresser and knowledge of business development, now runs the classic style barbershop, and Catarina has moved her writing from the home to the shop where she also takes care of the day-to-day work of the business. After several months of planning, drawing and carpentry we created Barber & Books based on what we like and we hope that you will like it too! 



Our team consists of competent and internationally experienced barbers with a solid and and long professional knowledge in fashion, trends, aesthetics and traditions. A team composed to meet all  demands our  faceted clientele may have and where knowledge of trends around the world is of high importance.


Do you want to be a part of our team?  We are always looking for creative and serviceminded hairdressers/barbers for full- or part time employment. We would like you to have a certified education in hairdressing and a proven experience in cutting men's hair and beard.
