Pall Mall Barbers is a London based barbershop, built on history and tradition, offering a premium barbering experience to the people of London.With 4 barbershops located centrally – Westminster, Bishopsgate, Fitzrovia and Trafalgar Square, their barbers have over 300 years of collective barbering experience between them, in London, the UK and internationally.
We got the chance to visit their Westminster barbershop, their newest barbershop located next to St James tube station. The barbershop is situated off a busy street – it has oak panelled walls, ceramic wash basins and traditional barbershop atmosphere. We wanted to do an experience review for them and were lucky enough to have John from beardandwine.com join us, along with Majella from pavlovaandcream.com photographing.
Here is what John thought of his beard trim experience.
I was invited to Pall Mall Barbers Westminster with TheBeardMag team to experience the barbering skills of an establishment that began nearly 120 years ago. Given it had been over a month since my last trim I was in need of an overdue trim and some expert grooming – my beard was looking out of control. I am always rather nervous when going to a new barber for the first time – I’ve had a couple of “miscommunications” where a subtle trim/shape up has resulted in a loss of two inches.
Luckily for me, Ben, my barber had over 10 years of experience – I knew I was in safe hands. Ben was confident, engaging and personable. We discussed what I wanted – a shape up, trim and to essentially get the beard under control – and Ben cracked on with the work. I kicked back and relaxed.
With steady hands, Ben combed and started to section my beard, carefully considering the shape and growth patterns. It is the attention to detail that separates experienced barbers from the rest, Pall Mall barbers pride themselves on their attention to detail and this definitely shone through. Before I knew it, my neck and cheeks were being cleaned up and some of their refreshing luxury sandalwood and clove beard oil was massaged in. Full of essentials oils and three different oils combined, this left my skin and beard revitalised and soft.
Sitting up to face the mirror, I was delighted. My beard had been tamed, it had a wonderful shape and had a great gloss. Confidence restored. I’d certainly recommend heading down to Pall Mall Barbers – a great experience.
We would like this opportunity to thank Pall Mall Barbers for their time and service, if you are looking for a traditional barbershop with experienced barbers then check out one of their locations. Make sure that you let them know that you were recommended by TheBeardMag.com.
