A resource to find recommended black and Afro-Caribbean barbershops in London and around the UK.
I decided to create a user-generated selection of the best barbers and barbershops that can deal with black hair with recommendations sent to me by black men (and women).
After moving to a new area and then moving just outside of London it was a bit of a struggle to find a barber that would save me travelling hours to get a sharp trim. The project has also been featured in The Voice Newspaper.
Simply check out the interactive map below, or you can view the master list here on Google Maps which should show you the nearest to your current location.
If you have a barbershop or barber to add to the map, please do email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me using #UKbarberlist. All high-quality barbers are accepted from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
