If you haven’t heard of Hair House Barbershop by Adam Chan, you would probably have thought it’s just another barber shop at a quieter part of town outside Thapae Gate, Chiang Mai. Moreover, the exterior of his shop has no indication whatsoever of the master that works within save for his namesake.
Which is probably what Adam would want anyway. As a rather well-known barber in Hong Kong, Adam has his own fan base which has tracked him down to Chiang Mai where he works and resides now with his family.
