The Dapper Barber

Posted on Jun 23, 2014 by

With an established outpost in Edinburgh, the award-winning barbers Ruffians have now opened a flagship store in the heart of Covent Garden. And we like their style.

Grooming services at Ruffians barbershop include everything the modern gentleman could possibly require, from haircuts to cut-throat razor shaves, moustache trims and beard tidies. And there is a sense of occasion to every cut and trim at Ruffians. Your barber will greet you at the bar or, in more inclement weather and cold winter evenings, beside the fire, and discuss your preferred style over a short black coffee or Brooklyn lager. Once you’ve settled into one of the signature Ruffians petrol blue Takara Belmont barber chairs, your hair will be washed at a sink in front of you – in the traditional way. An array of authentic traditional barber’s tools will be used during your time in the chair. After your trim, sit back and relax with a complimentary iPad and another coffee or a wee dram. You’re perfectly groomed and ready to face the world again – but why hurry?

The Ruffians interior decor combines smart, traditional wooden floorboards and solid oak benches with edgy exposed brick walls and practical yet stylish metro tiles. If you’re looking for beautiful reclaimed wood flooring for your home, including teak and parquet, speak to the expert team at The Reclaimed Flooring Co, based in Clerkenwell. And for similar tiles, Fired Earth’s “Retro Metro” tiles come in several soft shades, including “Swiss Cottage” white and “Baker Street” cream. You’ll see from our Pinterest pages that these “metro” or “subway” tiles look equally striking in the bathroom or kitchen.

Along the ceiling at Ruffians, heritage filament bulbs line up in neat rows along exposed metal ducting. The over-sized globe bulbs are from Urban Cottage Industries, who stock an array of vintage-style lightbulbs and industrial pendants. I love the way these bulbs illuminate that wonderful original brickwork at Ruffians.
