Our barbershop has been around since the mid 50’s,  formerly known as Jack’s Barbers. My father (the original Chris) came to London in 1964, soon after arriving from Cyprus he started working for Jack in Mayes road, Wood green.

He soon became Jacks manager and eventually he took over the business in 1981, when we moved to our current address. I believe we are now the oldest Barbershop and probably one of the longest running family businesses in Haringey, having built a long list of  loyal customers over the years with up to four generations coming from the same family and as well as a few celebrities a long the way.

I (Chris jnr) took over the business in 2007 when my father retired, having dedicated more than 50 years to the trade. I’ve just completed my 27th year at our Barber shop. Carrying on with the traditional and old School Barbering that was taught to me, mixed with the  modern, creative hairstyles of today. I remember as a  9 years old kid, watching my father working. I was mesmerised by how he would create these wonderful artistic haircuts that he would sculpt. I could literally watch him for hours and that’s when I knew I wanted to become a Barber, it was in my blood.

I’ve been fortunate in my early years of training to have some of the best barbers working with my father.  I was able to pick up so much from these guys and it helped me create my own way of cutting and styling. It wasn’t  just the techniques I learnt, but also an understanding of how the hair works. It’s the movement, texture and density, how they all affect and challenge the way we create haircuts and styles. With all that knowledge and over 30 years of experience combined, I am able to create any hairstyle that you can throw at me from whichever decade or era, as well as offering you the right advice. So whether it’s short, long, straight, curly, thick or fine hair and which ever ethnic background you come from. With myself and my teams vast years of experience and knowledge in the industry, we will  give you that perfect cut and  welcome you to our wonderful family of  customers.
