Getting a good haircut is essential to looking stylish and this selection of the best barbers in London are head and shoulders above the rest
Joe & Co
Hidden in the depths of Soho, among the coffee shops, popups and sample sales, you’ll find Joe & Co. Running the show is celebrity groomer and hair stylist Joe Mills, who hand picks his team based on his own values about contemporary men’s hairdressing and styling. Free flowing drinks and some top class banter all come as part of the package.
How it raises the bar: While there’s the usual range of services available, it’s the attention to detail and understanding of what you need that jumps these guys to the top. Spend the time listening to their advice and you really won’t regret it.
The man to do your do: If you can pin him down, then obviously Mills is the man, but in his absence ask for Elliot Forbes, who’s making waves in the industry for all the right reasons. Get on his client list while you can, before it’s jammed packed with celebrity clients.
