We have all heard the legends of Jack The Ripper, the mysterious and elusive serial killer active in the largely impoverished areas around the Whitechapel district of London in 1888. It seemed fitting for Master Barber and Founder, Halil Ismail, to use the oddity of Jack and form a brand around his very successful Turkish barbering business.
Our store at No.4 Toynbee has become a landmark within shoreditch not only for its great cuts & shaves but also as a tourist attraction for many who take part in the ripper tour.
So now Jack is back in town (a new man so to speak) as you can see on your left and his main priority is to keep all the gentlemen of London looking trim and proppa.
We all learnt our trade from a young age watching our Fathers and practicing on relatives. That’s right, they took the “cuts” so you don’t have to!
BE GROOMED BY A 3RD GENERATION LONDON TURKISH BARBER
From day one, we learnt our trade from a young age watching our Father’s and practicing on relatives. That’s right, they took the “cuts” so you don’t have to!
In fact it’s incredible quite how much we get done in just those 20 minutes. From gently rubbing your face with eucalyptus oil (which opens the pores) to using hot towels to sooth, to giving you a finger, arm and shoulder massage and even singeing any unsightly hair you may have on your ears. We manage it all in those 20 minutes, and in between even manage a rather good shave!
