As lads that have grown up in London ourselves, the barbers became a big part of our journey to founding Regal Gentleman. The products we found in the barbers were the products that inspired us to start, so we think it's very fitting that we bring you our run down of 10 of the best barbers you will find in London.
How do they describe themselves? I’d like to think I’ve created a fantastic team offering an amazing service at the shop, inspired by many of the barbers I’ve met, with very competitive rates. All shaves and haircuts run at 45 minute slots which is rarely seen outside of Mayfair. This allows us to offer a complimentary hair wash, hot towel and hot lather neck shave with every haircut and incorporate various massage techniques into the shaves. The shop is located just off Brick Lane in the trendy east end. We would love to see you soon.
Where are they? 54 Hanbury St, London, E1 5JL.
Joe & Co
How do they describe themselves? A contemporary Barbershop based in Soho, Joe and Co. offers all the frills and service you would expect from a superior men's salon, but with a focus on an informal atmosphere. Haircuts are classic, creative or modern, cut with precision by highly accomplished specialist men's hair stylists hand picked by Joe.
