The Best London Barbers 2022

Finding a barber you can trust can be worth its weight in gold for style-conscious men and if you are based in London, then you will know that barbershops are not in short supply.

So, how do you seek out the right choice for you?

The quality of the cut will always be prevalent, but often a higher price does not always equate to a better haircut. Some barbershops can flatter to deceive, offering beers and head massages to mask a haircut you could have got cheaper elsewhere.

With that in mind, we have set about curating a list of the very best barbers in London. These guys are able to tackle everything from a french crop to the perfect short back and sides. No matter if you have long, medium or short hair, they will be able to consult and advise on the best look for your face shape.

Read on for our pick of London’s top barbers.

Pall Mall Barbers

If you are looking for a classic mid-range cut, then Pall Mall Barbers is the one for you. They have been cutting men’s hair since 1896, and their name bears their eponymous location. 

Pall Mall was and still is to a certain degree a bustling hub for men. Some of London’s oldest outfitters, perfumers, barbers and gentleman’s clubs are all located around this central area.  

In 2005, the current owner bought the original Pall Mall barbershop from the family running it and has since expanded the business to six locations.
