    Got an excellent cut from 'Matt'. I must ask the apprentice's name again on the next appointment. I should know better. The reason why I keep coming back is the standard is always high. The staff are always welcoming. The apprentice's - where do they come from? Never a dull moment with them. LSB will never be short of praise. Will be back again for another excellent cut.

    i had my haircut on wednesday. At first i wasn't sure how the service will pan out, but gradually i saw that the trainee was doing a good job. As someone who is unemployed, the haircut will help to improve my self confidence.

    The barbers are probably tired of seeing me walk in time and again, but the cuts I get at Drury Lane are some of the best I've had and save me a lot of money (although, I always tip my barber!). During my most recent visit, my hair was cut by cheerful Erkhan (from Turkey), who gave me one of the best cuts I've had at Drury Lane! Well done to all the staff for their never-ending good humour and cheerfulness every time I visit. And, to Erkhan - Teşekkür ederim!! Mathew

    Caroline was superb!! It was my first time getting a haircut there, so she did not at all fail to make the best first impression. I loved how she was also very accommodating in terms of my style preferences. I would love to definitely visit again!
  • Mark Branden
    Excellent haircut!
    5
    Caroline was super! Good rapport with me. Always show how the apprentice how it was done before. This makes it easier for them. Guidance when necessary and the educator always done a final check before I leave. LSB reputation has gone before it so I will be back again.

    Best Haircut in London

    I got my haircut yesterday and it’s genuinely the best haircut I’ve received in London thus far. The service you are provided is fantastic and the attention to detail is amazing. The barber that I had (Oscar) was really passionate about it and I could tell that he really wanted to make my experience worthwhile. I will definitley be going back and I haven’t stopped talking to everyone about the place.

    Third visit. Fantastic cut from Dan on Tuesday morning. Nice guy who seems eager to please the client. Instructors seem very militant, but know what they're doing, and make good product recommendations (no hard sell here, since they don't sell the products, which is reassuring). So nice to have found somewhere that pays time and attention to their work, rather than rushing through clients.

    Didn't know the apprentice name but was his last day. No major cut this time just a tidy up. Gave guidance to him as this is my hair and I didn't want a disaster! It will last to the next appointment which is now booked just before Christmas.

  • William Baxter Noon
    Excellent cut - saved me £40!
    5
    I used to pay £40 to get my haircut - what was I doing?! I got exactly the same cut, if not a better blend, at LSB! Jack was an excellent barber and even if he hadn't have been, the teacher was always on hand inspecting the work, so you'll always go home with a great cut regardless. Good buzz there too, as most of the trainees are from all over the country and they haven't turned into cold hard Londoners! Cheers, LSB. Very pleased and I'll be booking again.

    This is my fifth/sixth haircut at the LSB on Drury Lane and as usual, I am very satisfied with the result. The students are very attentive and take a lot of care to give a great cut, it can often take a bit longer than expected (leave at least an hour and a half) but they always come out great and the demonstrators fix any minor gaffs. Overall, I would recommend it.

    Got the haircut I asked for with input from Nick. It will last until the next visit and then the process starts all over again. The standard of the haircut is what I am interested in. The time is well spent. From reading the comments everyone has different experiences. LSB is improving all the time. You can't turn a tanker around overnight. It has a lot of apprentices and all bring different challenges for the educators.
  • Václav Trnka
    Good quality, takes long time
    5
    I visited for the first time and my overall feeling is positive. The haircut took very long (80 minutes for a cut I usually have done in 25 minutes), but it was visible that the student tried VERY hard to cut everything perfectly. They were under supervision from skilled barber and he sometimes stepped in and corrected a small mistake. Overall I am very satisfied.

    My second visit to LSB and once again bowled over by the great service, care and attention paid to me and my haircut. The barber was amicable and of great skill. Recommend this to anyone who wishes to have someone fuss over their barnet once in a while.

    I got my hair cut twice here over the last month and I happened to get the same person (Brad) to cut my hair. He was absolutely brilliant, he knew exactly what to do and gave me an excellent hair cut both times. I highly recommend anyone to visit the London School of Barbering for a hair cut

    Fantastic service, even in their second week of training my barbers went to all lengths to ensure that they would create a haircut that we would be proud of! As I was only the third ever human haircut they did and the first asian client I was glad they had exposure working with a different hair type with me.

    This was my first visit and won't be my last. I must admit I was slightly apprehensive as the same night I was meeting a member of the Royal Family at an awards ceremony! I was very impressed at the attention to detail, the effort and overall service. Even better - it was FREE! I will definitely return next time I'm in London.

    Always a delightful feeling popping into London School of Barbering to get a haircut. It's probably my 4th or 5th time getting my haircut here. The quality and service is amazing. I remember I was dubious before getting my first haircut here but since then I haven't been to any other salons or barber shops. The students are trained excellently and it shows. Can't wait for another haircut soon!

    I've always enjoyed getting my hair cut at this place- it's professional but also quite relaxed. Definitely give it a go- a teacher always checks at the end so you'll get a polished result either way.

    You know the haircut is good, when people , who didn't know you were getting your hair cut, tell you what a good haircut you have. That's what happens every time I get my hair cut at the Barbering School. It's brilliant! You may not get a quick haircut in half an hour though, but that's the price you pay for a brilliant haircut.
