Heading 5



The key points of the Safer Workplace guidelines for England are:

  • All salons must stick to social distancing and maintain two metres between clients, or one metre with additional precautions, such as the use of screens

  • Face visors must be worn by practitioners for all activities. Face coverings are not an acceptable alternative to visors, but clients or staff may choose to wear an additional face covering

  • No walk-ins; clients must be seen by appointment only. Salon and barbershop owners will be required to keep a temporary record of all clients and visitors for 21 days to support the NHS test-and-trace system which controls outbreaks of the virus

  • No food or drinks to be consumed in the salon by clients other than water in disposable cups or bottles

  • The guidance does not ban the use of hairdryers

Est. 1967



It all began in 1967

Dad, Steve, purchased The Barber Shop in 1967, when it was the only barbers in central Twickenham. At the time there were only 2 others in central Twickenham, Fishbourne & Randall in Railway Approach, and Marc Anthony in Heath Road. Several others opened later including the Tonsorial Parlour in Holly Road famous for charging over £20 for a haircut in the 1970s.  
Prior to moving to Water Lane Steve worked at Gillons in Richmond for 12 years, where many of his clients were from the Richmond Theatre and Twickenham Studios many of whom followed him to Water Lane in 1967. Combined with new clients from the then Thames Studios made the barbers in Water Lane at times a place of much hilarity and entertainment. 
Steve finally retired in 1991 and handed over the business to me, Michael.  The barbers have prided themselves in providing exemplary service and proud to now grooming the hair of 3rd generation of family members.
