Europe's best barber shops

Beauty salons and spa experiences are for many men a closed world dedicated to women. But the comebacks of Barbershops have been giving men the urge to happily lean backwards in armchairs to enjoy a nice hair treatment like its 1930. Here are some of the greatest Barbershop to visit in Europe.

Huckle the Barber, London

Huckle the Barber has a design that avoids the old-fangled of other premium barbers. With butcher shop-white tiles and Belmont chairs the attitude at Huckle is that men are grown-up enough to care about grooming without having to pretend to be in 'Mad Men'.
