Free Haircut In London - Haircut Models Needed

Free Haircut London

This is a great opportunity for you to get a haircut and/or beard trim with one of the best barbers in London.

You will get -

  • A free haircut with Dan Gregory (normally £80), voted one of the best barbers in London by GQ. And don't worry, we won't just shave your hair off unless you want to!
  • A thorough consultation beforehand with Dan, including advice about your hair with a haircut tailored to you and your needs!
  • A chance to ask one of the best barbers in London any burning question you have about your hair
  • Featured on the Regal Gentleman YouTube channel to almost 24,000 subscribers, so you know you'll be getting a great cut

This opportunity is available all year round as we look to film 2-3 videos per week throughout 2019 for our YouTube channel, so if we can't get you in now, there's a chance we could later in the year.

Get involved:

If you're interested then send an email to or send a message to @regalgentleman on Instagram.

Please include -

  • Subject "Haircut model"
  • 2-3 clear pictures of your hair as it is right now attached (These can just be quick selfies - they won't be seen by anyone but us). No worries if your hair isn't ready yet, we can plan to get you in a month or so in advance.
  • As much information as you can in the email about your hair and the style you want or any particular advice you'd like if you have any

This will all help us to make sure we don't get loads of the same videos.

*Please note there are no guarantees and we will not be able to guarantee everybody who reaches out this opportunity at this time, but we will try to arrange as many as we possibly can.

Requirements for the free haircut:

1. You must be able to travel to London easily

Will be around Central London. At the moment, we normally operate our videos with barbers close to Farringdon, Shoreditch and Stoke Newington.

2. It can't just be a quick trim up unfortunately (5-6 weeks growth minimum needed)

We will need some element of "transformation" and growth to work with. So if you had your hair cut last week then we won't be able to work with it! We will need a good 5-6 weeks growth at least by the time of the video, but the longer the better!

3. You must be happy to be filmed on camera

This is a pretty big requirement, in fact it's the only catch.

But don't worry won't be anything taxing for you. The videos will be all about the haircut and the barber advice, so we won't need you to polish up on your acting skills just yet! We also keep this very casual, just like a normal haircut and with a handheld camera and just one person filming, so you'll forget we're there after a while. Take a look at our videos beforehand to give you an idea.

4. You will ideally be happy to try new hairstyles or variations on your style

Don't worry when we say new hairstyles we wouldn't just shave your head bald or dye your hair bright green (unless you wanted to, of course). The hairstyles will be worked with you with a thorough consultation beforehand, but obviously it makes a more interesting video if you are willing to give a little more creative freedom to the barber from what you want than just a quick short back and sides trim up.

5. Ideally available on Thursday or Friday evenings between around 6pm to 8.30pm

These are the times we normally film so it's good to keep in mind. There's a chance we could also arrange something for Saturdays too, or other times during the week at a push, but these are typically our filming days and slots. It will take no longer than an 60-90 mins, and will just be like going for a normal haircut plus a little bit more time for the barber talking to the camera.
