Our head barber and general manager, Daniel Davies, was asked to come along to Capital FM and help out with an unusual request for a fan of Dua Lipa. Curious about what happened and how Daniel and the team helped this fan declare his undying love for Dua Lipa?

Would you get I ❤️ Dua Lipa shaved into the back of your head?

Ross, a huge fan of Dua Lipa, was a great sport and let Daniel and Christian, head barber at our Bishopsgate store take to his hair and shave I ❤️ Dua Lipa into the back of his head. The message was lined out and coloured with pencils which we have used at a number of pop-up barbershop events in the past, especially for the UEFA Champion’s League Madness or Priceless campaign, for which we were shortlisted for a BT Sport Industry Award.

Watch what happened!

The presenter team were pleasantly surprised with how great it looked, even if a little unsure about how it might be to walk around declaring your adoration of an artist who as we all know ‘DGAF’. This is first time we’ve ever had such a specific and curious request, but of course we’re down for a good time here at Pall Mall Barbers. We’re obviously huge fans of Dua Lipa here at Pall Mall Barbers too – we love our London born artists – but no idea if Dua has seen this herself or what she makes of it!

Media requests

We’re always happy to help out with any media requests and queries. Over the past decade, Pall Mall Barbers has featured in more than 200 different media clips for high profile companies including GQ, the Evening Standard, BBC, Channel 4 and ITV. We have featured on many mainstream television programmes, including Sunday Brunch, This Week, Daily Politics, Mr Selfridge, The One Show, Heir Hunters, How To Look Good Naked and the BBC News. We are familiar with the demands of production companies, the requirements of journalists and the pressures of live radio. We are able to offer advice on the best angles to shoot from within our stores, where to put lighting and how to maximise the most interesting location features for the best possible results. Several staff have been invited into TV studios to provide barbering services and the professional skills of our barbers have been called upon for shaving scenes where actors did not have the technical or safety knowledge to authentically shave another actor with an open blade.
