Beauty salon brand RAWR certainly know how to make a statement, all you need to do is look at their decor to tell you that they don’t mess around.

They specialise in brows, lashes and nails but with a team of expert therapists on hand, they also offer waxing, blowdries and massages. RAWR knows we’re all strapped for time, so the salon offers speedy treatments like threading, tints and file & polish manis that are ideal for squeezing in on your lunch break, as well as more intensive options like TLC pedicures and lash extensions for when you want something more glam.


Adam Grooming Atelier, Liverpool Street, Brushfield Street, London

ADAM have eight barbers around London, with the latest opening up in Spitalfields (where Rola Wala used to be weirdly enough). ADAM successfully fuses the traditional Turkish barbers with some of the more hipster salons that have popped up in London in the last few years. The design is vert futuristic, almost nightclub-y, with lots of mirrors, lights and a thumping soundtrack. There’s beers, whisky, and Turkish coffee on offer so you’ll be well looked after before you’ve even had a hair snipped. There’s a big range of pro services on offer, from a traditional haircut which includes a consultation, wash, cut, dry, second wash, hot towel, friction scalp massage, dry, finish and style, to new grooming services such as facials & manicures. We even had the tiny hairs on our ears singed off with a flaming cotton wool bud – a new one on us! With reasonable prices and top service, ADAM is probably about the most fun you can have at the barbers.


29-32 Berners St, London W1T 3LR

Hershesons has a shiny flagship salon in Fitzrovia and it’s pretty mega. Not only does the 5000 sqft space look great thanks to patterned floors, a real mix of seating, plants, and (of course) lots of lights and mirrors, and the open-plan design makes it feel more like a social space than a hairdressers. A host of top beauty talent has been brought on board, so you can also get your nails done by DryBy, facials from Sunday Riley (their first treatment offering in the UK), light therapy from The Light Salon and brows done by Suman Brows. Hershesons is known for their attention to detail and it’s the same here – when you get a hair wash and scalp massage, the chairs you sit in are massage chairs so your whole body gets a good rolling over, and you sit wherever you want too so you don’t have to move around between cut and colour. They’re all about making you feel comfortable.


33 Amwell St, Islington, London EC1R 1UR

Gents of London, located on Amwell street between Angel and Farringdon, is one of our favourite barbers in London. Finding the right balance between price and a proper service, this isn’t the kind of place where you feel like your’e being rushed out to make way for the next guy waiting in line, but nor it is it an overpriced salon with unnecessary bells and whistles. It’s traditional and old school in style with a simple list of services that range from a beard trim to a total cut and restyle. The barbers are real pros and take time to understand what you’re after, so that you actually end up with what you asked for. We’ve always been more than happy with any cut we’ve had here and we also like their range of products and styling waxes. Highly recommended.


4 Avery Row Mayfair London, W1K 4AL

For the ultimate grooming experience, Ted’s Ultimate VIP experience is the one. You’re in Ted’s VIP lounge in the basement of Ted’s Grooming Room, Mayfair for this masterclass in Turkish barbering, which includes a hair cut, beard trim and cheeky neck rub. After you’ve got into the chair, you get offered the drinks list, which covers everything from bourbon to tea. Then the towels get flung over you and the barber whips into action with precision, flair and panache. Your eyebrows get trimmed, your skin is covered in black wax and sticks go up your nostrils and are left to set. Then the fire comes out. The traditional Turkish ear-flaming is over before you’ve time to check if you need to sign a waiver. The black wax is quickly and sharply removed (it’s relatively pain-free) and you do feel an immediate lift in your skin, and you also get to see what’s no longer up your nose. After an exfoliating scrub, an eye mask goes on and you’re left to relax before the wet shave kicks in. Finally, there’s a scalp, face, arm and shoulder massage followed by a hot towel. Go on, treat yourself to some VIP love at Ted’s.


7 Morning Ln, London E9 6ND

If you just catch a glance of WhiP as you walk past, you’d be forgiven for not realising it’s a hair salon straightaway. With a mix of second-hand furniture, plants, a set of decks and a stash of vinyl, it looks likes (a very cool) somebody’s lounge – it’s only the retro barber chairs that give it away. WhiP is an organic and eco-friendly boutique salon and they take the eco thing seriously, stocking vegan products from Evo and Oway, having refillable bottles for shampoos and only serving vegan bevvies.

32 Uxbridge Road, London, W8 7TA

This salon in Notting Hill is London’s first independent sugaring company, created with Instagrammers in mind – think millennial pink walls, cactus-lined shelves and wet wipes adorned with “I love my muff”. For those who don’t know what sugaring is, it’s an ancient method of hair removal using sugar, lemon and water to create a mixture that’s similar to wax. It’s said to be less painful because the therapist pulls in the direction of the growth and unlike wax, the mixture only sticks to the hair rather than the skin. It exfoliates the skin as it removes dead skin cells and leaves less ingrowing hairs as there’s no damage to the follicles. That along with the fact it’s completely natural and the most eco-friendly form of hair removal means we’re converts.


255 Portobello Road, London W11 1LR

Located on one of London’s most famous roads, the Portobello Road outpost of Blue Tit is the group’s tenth salon to open in the capital. The decor mirrors the salon’s neighbourhood as well as following in the footsteps of its sister sites, with bright colours, striking artwork and a rather cool patterned floor. And we love the fact that it’s open until 9pm on weekdays, making it that much easier to fit that cut into your diary.


228 Westbourne Grove, London W11 2RH

Young LDN is a salon designed with millennials and generation Z in mind with its cool decor, technology-led treatments and all round fun vibes. Young LDN’s founder Sue first decided to open the salon when she realised that London lacked a salon dedicated to teenagers, where they could discuss issues around acne and beauty with ease. Not only can they get treated professionally by the experts at Young LDN, they can also find some of the hottest beauty brands on the market all under one roof. That said, the salon also knows that being young is a state of mind and not just a number so it’s open to all.
