The Top 5 Brighton Barbers

So, you’ve just finished work on a Friday and you’ve got a big weekend planned. The chances are that your week’s been that hectic, you haven’t even had the chance to think about getting a haircut or beard trim, let alone taken the time to scout out a good Brighton barber and get yourself booked in.

Where do you go? Who’s got appointments left and who are you going to trust to give you a nice spruce up, just in time for the weekend?

Whether you’re a pompadour prince, in need of a first-class buzz cut, or just looking for a quick tidy up, you’re in luck because thankfully for you, Brighton serves up some of the finest barbers in the South-East.

If that wasn’t enough to give you a boost, we’ve taken out all the pain-staking and panic-stricken Google searches and flurry of Friday afternoon calls to try and bag yourself a last-minute appointment.

Here’s our top five Brighton Barber Shops:

1. Peter Joannou Male Grooming

Brighton BarberLet’s dive straight into the deep end and start with what is arguably the city’s most reputable and finest barbershop. Peter Joannou Male Grooming is nestled in the South Lanes on Middle Street and offers the city’s most comprehensive range of services. From haircuts, beard trims and wet shaves, to a selection of luxury treatments, which includes their famous Complete, featuring a face buff cleanse, steam and skin care regime that is truly unrivalled - this Brighton barber truly ticks all the boxes in your search for replenishment and rejuvenation.

What gives this barbershop the edge over others in Brighton, we believe, is a super-friendly and relaxing atmosphere that is steeped in tradition and masculinity. With a capacity of four at any given time, you’ll always be in with a shot of securing an appointment last-minute, however, for weekends and busy periods, you’ll need to book a little in advance.

They also offer a student discount on Monday to Wednesday too, which is great if you’re watching the pennies!

3. Black L’Amour

4. Barber and Frank

Located in the hearts of Hove and Kemptown, Barber and Frank are always there for you if you need something for the weekend or a complete restyle. Visit one of their relaxing and masculine-rich environments, with no appointment necessary. Barber and Frank serve up a variety of traditional barbershop services in both of their unique spaces.

5. Francos

Just a few minutes walk from the Royal Pavilion, Franco’s is a stylish and relaxing Brighton barbershop that well and truly deserves its place amongst Brighton’s elite.
