After establishing their first barbershop in London’s creative hub of Shoreditch in 2006, they have wanted to re-imagine the masculine luxury of the capital’s Victorian male grooming establishments. An environment for men wanting to release their dapper potential that was less sterile than a unisex salon but still used highly skilled stylists to deliver the finest and latest hair cuts. A stylish and welcoming haven for a modern gentleman to take the time to relax, have a beer or whisky and build a relationship with his barber.

Now with six shops across the city, all offering unique barbering services and extensive offering of gent’s grooming tools and accessories.

In a bijou, mirror-walled space hidden beneath the Nicky Clarke hair salon, the Gentleman’s Grooming Vault is dedicated to the classic wet shave and haircut. Established by Kelly Simpkin, a former banker, it’s aimed at men who like to be pampered but don’t necessarily like to admit to it. Watch a film, listen to music or just do nothing and daydream while being groomed to perfection. Rumor has it their clients have included everyone from Kevin Spacey to jeweller Stephen Webster.
