There’s no denying that there’s been an big uprise in the popularity of traditional-style barber shops over the past few years – it’s way cooler to get your short back and sides from a barbers instead of a generic hairdressers, right?! Well, there’s definitely no shortage of them in the vibrant city of Bristol, and we’ve decided to round up the best ones that the city has to offer for men’s grooming.

Harry Blades & Angry Daves

Tucked away on Christmas Steps in Bristol, in the city centre, Harry Blades & Angry Daves (or HBAD to the locals) has had a home here since opening its doors. Although also providing a service for women’s hairdressing, this is definitely a very ‘non-salon’ environment, with a focus on providing a classic barbering service. The interior is super cool, with lots of taxidermy and artwork, which makes the entire process an experience. Plus, the team behind the shop are extremely welcoming and friendly!

3. British Barber Company

Beauty Salon, Shop

If you’re looking for a traditional, old-world gentleman’s barber shop, then the British Barber Shop on Wine St won’t disappoint. From the outside, which is a gorgeous rich red colour (during the Christmas months, this is adorned with beautiful festive decorations) to the team that are all dressed in matching shirts and ties, this grooming location encapsulates all of the old-school charm of a traditional barber shop. The cuts definitely don’t disappoint, either!

4. Level Cuts

Level Cuts is actually an independent barber’s chain in Bristol, with three salons throughout the city, but the Bedminster one, located on the busy North Street, proves popular with the locals – and for good reason. Each stylist at this cool barbers has their own individual style and technique, offering a fresh take on men’s grooming. With super-slick décor, this is definitely a must-visit if you’re in need of a haircut.
