A post shared by Murdock London (@murdocklondon) on Visions of the demon barber spring to mind when you first set foot in each of Murdock's eight outlets (Soho, Covent Garden, Sloane Street, Shoreditch, King Street, Regent Street, Old Broad Street and Spitalfields), but throat-slashing is low on the agenda.
Be sure to check out the website after your visit, as Murdock sell lots of lovely booty - including a range of luxury shave products and a popular beard moisturiser - to compliment your new 'do.
Oh, and don't miss out on the matchless hot towel face massage either.
Barber to the stars Joe Mills has been running his Soho haunt since 2010 and it is still the place to beat in the area.
@gentlemenstonic we always do our best to make you look and feel your absolute best.
From the apothecary-esque own-brand products to the neon art decorating the immaculately tiled walls (not to mention the incredibly competent - and achingly cool - staff) it's one of the best.

The team cut its teeth in the fashion industry, so you know they'll be up to par (at pain of death).
The light, unfussy, informal atmosphere belies the seriousness with which Joe and his team operate - this is proper men's grooming where attention to detail is second to none.
A full range of services for your facial hair is on offer, as is ear and nose waxing.
