HuckleThe Barber set up shop just 12 days after its renovation on Old Street in December 2012. This trendy gents barber shop combines new and old school techniques to create modern and classic cuts, basically if you want your mop done with style and flair this is the place. Here’s the crack, it looks snazzy, but with subtlety rather than pretentiousness, your man Chris, a true gent with 14 years experience and a reputation to match will see you in with a wink and a smile. You’ll be offered a refreshment we’re not talking still water here, we’re talking Caravan Coffee, a beer from Howling Hops Brewery in Hackney or if you’re lucky Malt Whisky from The Balvenie distillery, us, we asked for a brew…
Anyway, we’re not here to gas over bevvies we’re talking about chopping into a mop. Now, you maybe aware our mod like barnet is precious to us, so we were instantly relaxed when Chris talked us through the new refined, restyled and rejuvenated ‘do he had in store for us.
Spun round, chair raised and we were in for a wash…niffty manoeuvre. A spray-in conditioner was used instead of a cream as the mod top needs to fly. Deep in snips, we were not only having banter but learning tips and techniques on styling, products – you name it we now know it. In what seemed like no time the little mirror was out showing us the back, the side and the back agan. Crackin’
