LONDON’S TOP 4 BARBERS
Want a wet shave, beard trim or a posh haircut? For designer stubble and plush face treatments in a comfortable leather chair, and if you’re lucky you’ll get a refreshing beer while you get
fuzzed ‘n buzzed…
Established in the creative hub of Shoreditch in 2006, Murdocks now has shops across London and New York offering unique barbering services and their grooming tools and accessories.
Whether a haircut, wet shave or quick tidy up between a full haircut, the time spent in one of their individual shops is an experience in itself. Treat yourself to a "Murdock London Luxury Full Service', and even get your shoes shined while you're there. Leave feeling dapper once more.
Monmouth Street, Covent Garden, WC2H.
N0.2 JACK THE CLIPPER
If you're brave enough, visit one of the two barbershops that have the fun (maybe slightly disturbing) Jack the Ripper theme. Perhaps one of the only classic barbers in London that uses Turkish barbering techniques, don't be surprised if the trained barber smokes out your ear hairs with a flaming cotton ball doused in alcohol.
If you can understand old (and new) Cockney Rhyming Slang, go onto their site and choose your treatment. Be it a Lemon Squash (wash), Dig In The Grave (shave), or a Strange and Weird (beard trim) with a hot Simon Cowell (towel), you're sure to enjoy your journey back to times of the famous serial killer.
Toynbee Street, E1 and Shepherd Market, W1J.
NO.3 JERMYN STREET BARBERS
Barbers don't get more traditional than this. Famous for traditional wet shaving services in St James'. The barbershop is located in Central London, between Piccadilly and Green Park.
Whether a beard or moustache trim, classic straightforward haircut or traditional hot towel wet shave, the trained team always take and styling. The perfectionists among you can opt for traditional cut-throat shaving lesson - they even provide shaving products from Taylor of Old Bond Street at a reasonable cost.
Jermyn Street, SW1Y.
NO.4 GEO F TRUMPER
This traditional barbershop, offering men's pampering since 1875 is as close to a Victorian-style gentlemen-only barber as you can get.
Haircuts surrounded by mahogany and mirrors with antique shaving brushes, Trumper's offer treatments including wet shaves, manicures, and facials. Treat yourself to something from their range of fragrances and grooming products.
Duke of York Street, SW1
