Tony Flynn on the ultimate London men’s grooming experience
The Ultimate Men’s Grooming Experience in London
The average British man gets just 58 minutes to himself each week – that’s only 8 minutes a day! Enough is enough. It’s time to treat ourselves and I’ve got just the ticket; Chamber 88 at Jack the Clipper (www.jacktheclipper.co.uk).
Established in 1996 by London’s first and biggest family of Turkish Master barbers; Jack The Clipper has become a household name in the community, renowned for making Londoners look sharp and feel special. From stylish and on trend cuts to beard trims, hot wax treatments and eyebrow threading – these lads have got you covered! Whether you know the look you desire or need some creative guidance, the master barbers will design and refine your hair with pinpoint precision. I, myself went for the ‘Chamber 88’ experience at their stunning Bow Lane location. Chamber 88 is a bespoke lounge for treatments by barbers who have at least 15 years of blood, sweat and hairs in their resumé! The experience is out of this world and doesn’t cost an awful lot considering the amount of pampering you receive – open bar (with the best whiskeys, gins, champagnes), an amazing setting in the basement of their Bow Lane shop, hair style, trim, hot towel, shave, facial, massage, eyebrows – I didn’t want to leave the chair! To top it off they use some seriously good products which smell out of this world and leave you feeling mighty fresh mincing out onto the streets of London! This is an experience you’ll want to repeat over and over again.
