Like all the other Blue Tits, it’s got a very strong look – with a whole wall of picture frames, an original fireplace, vintage furniture and exposed brick, it’s definitely more-is-more. Whether you’re after the chop or want a whole new colour, your hair is in safe hands here.

Still London is a salon that’s better for your body and for the planet. Completely non-toxic and environmentally friendly, the products are the most gentle you’ll find on the market – even the gel polish won’t wreck your nails. Mani and pedi treatments use either Kure Bazaar 10-Free polish or Orly 12-Free gel polish – both brands are free from the whole host of the toxic chemicals usually found in nail varnish making them better for your nails and for the environment – and the salon also does facials too.

You don’t just go to Ruffians for a quick trim, you go for an experience. You can get a coffee or a bourbon and you can enjoy a seat by the open fire…yep they have an open fire right in the middle of the barbers. With exposed brick work, animal skulls, and cages acting as lockers for everything from cups to coats, it all looks very cool. The cuts, beard trims and close shaves are all done properly too, and there’s zero pretentiousness here.

DKUK is not your typical salon by any means – but don’t worry, they still know their hair. Architect Sam Jacobs turned this salon into a gallery, removing all mirrors and replacing them with artwork. The space still has mirrors, but they aren’t meant for checking yourself out. They act as an illusion to make the space seem a bit bigger – and a play on how we are (or aren’t) seen. Next time you’re in need of a tidy-up, give this place a go.

With his speciality being 30 minute haircuts, its the perfect place to drop in for a quick wash and a cut – and leave chuffed with your new ‘do.

Murdock keeps us in ship-shape condition pretty much all the time. The barber shop has an old-school vibe and won’t only sort your beard and barnet out, but also do full-on facial treatments with a good old scrub, hot towels, beard oil, moisturiser and cucumber eye cream – and it’s so worth treating yourself to one.
