Beyond The Barbers Chair – Best Barbers London
In this series called Beyond the Barbers Chair, we will be meeting some of the barbers and personalities that work for us here at Pall Mall Barbers London. The videos will offer a great insight into what it’s like to be a barber at one of London’s oldest & most respected barbering brands, along with finding out what people love about barbering as a whole and what they like to do away from the barbershop environment.
In this episode, we meet Michael from Pall Mall Barbers Fitzrovia.
You can book your appointment with Michael here.
A barber for over 10 years, Michael has joined the team at Fitzrovia with plenty of experience, previously working at a gents salon in Wimbledon. He’s particularly skilled at short fades and is also a talented wet shaver – he’s known for his work with beard styling and trimming too. His favourite service is a total re-style, to help people find the best look for their facial features and hair type and says that helping people find themselves in a restyle means they leave happy and want to come back time and time again. He built himself a loyal following in his old salon with lots of a-list footballers and celebs in his client list and will surely become popular in Fitzrovia.
Michael says he likes to keep up with the football (but only when it’s not nice outside) and enjoys extended holidays and travelling. He’s recently spent a month and a half in Sri Lanka and enjoys exploring the jungle as much as chilling on the beach.
Michael’s Top Tip
Pall Mall Barbers Post Shave Balm is fantastic for every day moisturising – it leaves your face feeling clean, fresh and smooth.
The Gentlemen – Hair Style Advice from Michael
The Gentlemen, Guy Ritchie’s latest film, hit the big screen on New Year’s day, and we’ve already had queries about getting barber’s advice on the hairstyles of the movie’s biggest stars – so if you want to get Matthew McConaughey’s hair style, Charlie Hunnam’s hair style, or Henry Golding’s hair style, read on for tips and guidance from the team at Pall Mall Barbers Fitzrovia.
The film centres around Matthew McConaughey’s character, Mickey Pearson – an American businessman who has built up a successful marijuana empire in London. When Mickey decides to sell off his business, his competitors come up with schemes and plots to overthrow him and steal it from beneath him. The film also stars Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell, and Eastenders legend Dean Gaffney.
Henry Golding’s hair style – The Gentlemen
Henry Golding, fresh from leading roles in Last Christmas and Crazy Rich Asians, plays Dry Eye – a rival gangster who wants in on Pearson’s empire.
How to get Henry Golding’s hair style from the movie The Gentlemen – Advice from Michael based at Pall Mall Barbers Fitzrovia
What should I ask the Barber for?
Henry’s hair is worn in the classic slick back look, that is easy to maintain. If you want to wear your hair just like Henry Golding’s character in the Gentlemen, but don’t know what to ask for, it couldn’t be simpler: ask your barber to give you a 3 back and sides, medium height fade and slick back style on the top.
How do I style Henry Golding’s haircut from The Gentlemen?
You don’t want to have too much length left on top, but just enough that you can slick back. For you to create the style at home, you should warm a small amount of wax between your fingertips, then apply to dry hair, running fingers through the hair from front to back and shaping the hair into the desired position. For hold, you should finish off with a small amount of hair spray.
Barber’s advice for hair styling Henry Golding’s – Dos and Don’ts
Whilst the slick back look is very versatile and allows you to style your hair in many different ways, if you have a receding hairline the slick back will make it seem more obvious.
