men’s hair: murdock london
Being a ‘modern gent’ is not something you can shy away from in London, and why would you? Being style conscious gives us our own identity…this is embedded into the philosophy of Murdock London, who ‘form the foundations of confidence a man needs to stride through life’s adventures’ says founder Brendan Murdock. AND London life adventures took us to their Redchurch Street barbers to be given the works.
First off, Murdock has an impressive look, it’s professional, it’s proper…and everything about it is masculine. The shop is like a museum, the old school interior is splashed with their latest men’s grooming products from skin care to cologne, showcasing their British heritage. Modern day barbering is as much about the experience as it is the skill of the barber and Murdock make you feel part of it. The beard trim was especially enjoyable, tilted back in the chair and in full relaxation mode, it’s an effort not to drift off. With the beard trim done it was on to the hair cut with the aim of both the beard and barnet complementing each other. It was clear to see our barber taking the time to make sure he was happy with his work which all reflects back on us – the customer. You can’t fault the quality here.
Alsoavailable are facial treatments…a good old scrub followed by hot towels, beard oil, moisturiser, cucumber eye cream, which lets you switch off completely and enjoy a moment of stillness while your head is wrapped in the warmth of the towels. What’s even better is their partnership with Star of Bombay’, where the art of contemplation can be enjoyed with complimentary Star & Tonics while sharpening your looks and cuts. Get involved with Murdock, cuts start from £36.
The Art of Contemplation with Murdock London can be experienced up until 16th September 2016.
