Both of our London barbers which are located in Old Street, Shoreditch and Lambs Conduit Street, Holborn tick all the boxes for the modern day barbers experience.
Huckle the Barber London owner and founder Chris Ward was inspired by a butcher's shop with white London Underground tiles on the walls, art hanging from butchers hooks and a meat counter where all of our products are displayed.
The first barbers is positioned on a street corner opposite Hoxton Square, East London so it was decided to keep the front simple and the windows clear so that people can see straight in. The shop features 8 vintage factory lights from Labour and Wait, to add to the butcher's feel there are 4 retro black Takara Belmont Apollo 2 chairs with white piping around the edges. The chairs were the first purchase and the timeless black and white colour scheme within the shop was ultimately designed around them.
Our second and newer location is Lambs Conduit Street - one of London’s most thriving locations. Featuring two floors presented in the classic Huckle The Barber butchers influenced style. The shop features 8 cutting sections, with classic Takara Belmont chairs, a basement with decks, great sound system and a soon to be installed photo studio.
As a pre-requisite all of Huckle the Barber's team across both shops have 5 years or more experience. Most are also session stylists working on Men's Fashion Week and editorials.
One wall of our shops are dedicated to local artists. The artist and art changes every 6 weeks. The wall has previously show-cased work from Paul "Don" Smith, Snub23 and BLAM. Each of the artists does a live paint in the shop inviting audiences in to watch.
Music is very important to Huckle the Barber. As a result both of our London based barbershops have Bowers and Wilkins sound systems to play music that both staff and clients are passionate about. Both new and old but always appropriate for the time of day. Huckle the Barber also invites bands who are playing in the area to perform an acoustic session which is showcased on the website featuring a band interview.
We try to stock brands that are unique to Huckle the Barber and hand pick them from all over the world. We are now proud to bring to Huckle the Barber our own collection of men's grooming products.
The concept behind Huckle the Barber is for a gent to feel hassle-free when getting his hair or beard trimmed. Huckle the Barbers offers a relaxed haven away from the hustle and bustle of London life for a 45 minute experience and will ensure each customer returns knowing that they will get a great service with no pretence.
