If anything sums up hipster chic, it’s Barber & Parlour. Two walls of books and product-lined shelves seal off this grooming enclave from the bustling café on Redchurch Street. So while this isn’t the place to come to for tranquil meditation, the inevitable Shoreditch buzz creates a social and jovial atmosphere that does away with any awkward barbershop silences.
The barbers here are hip without being intimidating, instantly able to decipher the hair cut you’re actually asking for. Their treatment list is a no-nonsense affair: one type of wet shave with all the trimmings; beard trimming, a manicure; and facial. All are excellent and use their own cult product range.
