Bobs - There are equally shy of nine million people in London. And anyone who's ever tried to buy a haircut there will confirm, very fraction fewer barber shops.

From magnificent Mayfair grooming emporiums fit for only a king to South London chop shops offering precision skin fades cheaper than a round of drinks, you never have to settle for your bad haircut ever again.

Never let the name fool you, the highly-skilled staff as well Edinburgh-born barbering establishment are not violent, which is simply as well given the array of bladed implements they have perhaps at their disposal.

Ruffians was one of many names that spearheaded the barber shop revolution of current times, giving rise to somewhat of a modern age of male grooming during this process and helping men to take pride in their appearances once again.

With a history dating back to 1896, the ground at Pall Mall Barbers is certainly no stranger to a smattering of shorn hair. The main Whitcomb Street shop belongs to the oldest in the administrative centre and despite having changed hands repeatedly, hasn't ever stopped getting used to chop mops.

For mid-price cuts, Pall Mall Barbers'boasts a glowing reputation, that has seen it open up locations everywhere over the city to deal with demand. There's even a New York shop not far off, too.
