1. The Welcome
It’s policy in this salon that everyone is greeted and acknowledged when they arrive. As a woman it could be intimidating to venture into the recesses of male grooming but the team that owner Jon has hand-picked make an inclusive and intimate atmosphere. There is no locker room banter here and I felt like one of the boys in no time! Swiftly seated in the hot seat, the male Muddy specimen was made to feel comfortable and ready to tidy up that ‘do. It’s easy to see why men aged 1 to 100 come here, there are no egos and everyone is genuinely pleased to see you.
2. Attention To Detail
Ricky was excellent at deciphering our guinea pig’s vague style request and listened intently. He regularly checked that he was on the right track and each hair was snipped with care. When it came to the shave, the man approached it like a ritual! The skin was smoothed and shaved and oiled to perfection. No follicle was left unpreened. The salon itself is minimalist and stripped back without losing its charm. A Jim Beam bottle here and a skateboard there, the free beer (I KNOW!) and sensational coffee go to show that it’s the little touches that make a place exceptional.
3. The Products
As well as a towel warmer (yes that’s a thing!) the salon uses Reuzel and Muk products that are just the right side of masculine to make any customer worth his salt feel manly yet suitably pampered. Where else can you get a bottle of shaving oil with a pig on the front, out of a vintage suitcase? That plus the fact that it will leave any man looking and smelling better than when they came in is enough to convert even the most vehement skin care skeptic.
Brought my three year old in for the first time
Today and was bowled over by the energy the staff, particularly Ross, put in to making him happy to have his hair cut! He usually screams and screams, today there was not a single tear, he left with a huge smile and boasting to everyone he could that he won the hair cutting race the team staged to encourage him! Thank you! Hair cuts are usually very traumatic for us both. We will definitely be back in a few weeks!:

Quite simply the best place to get your hair cut in Kettering. My little boy likes going too because the staff are friendly and there’s an X-Box to play whilst you wait:
