The gentleman’s barber is a true master of grooming, with a sharp blade and fine scissors he can transform a dishevelled man into a distinguished gent in a matter of hours. Geo F Trumper is one of the oldest and most luxurious barbers in London who not only provide a variety of top quality grooming services, but also have great expertise in the formulation of soaps, fragrances and grooming utensils. We were recently given the opportunity to go to their shop on Duke of York Street, alongside the great tailors of London, to sample their products and services. View Post
Over the past few years the gentleman’s barber has come back into fashion with many offering a variety of services including haircuts, styling, hot shaves, head massages, manicures and shoes shines. This growth in “spas for gentlemen” has meant that men everywhere can experience the luxury of a hot shave and whiskey cocktail before a big event or night out.
With such a plethora of options we decided to choose six grooming salons, from across the country, who have proven to be some of the best in their areas. We’ve taken into account customer reviews, magazine articles, barber awards and even personal recommendations to come out with 6 of our favourites.
6) Close Male – Manchester
With a multitude of reviews lauding their friendly staff, comfortable salon and relaxing atmosphere, Close Male has managed to create a name for itself in the North West as a top barbershop for male grooming. Their prices range from £4.50 for a beard trim to a full works treatment costing £79.50 that includes: traditional cut & finish, hair treatment, cut throat shave, face mask and an Indian head massage. They also have a “hangover cure” for £5 which has intrigued us to the point where we’re already planning a visit in the near future.
With 4 salons located in Manchester they are well worth a visit and their prices make them a bargain for any gentleman’s budget. View Post
