Mr Barber, Gentleman's Grooming Parlour

A barbershop with character, a local personality at its helm. 'Mr Barber' is the newest independent business on Southbourne Grove, four miles east from central Bournemouth. Even on the first day of trading, there is a gathering of customers eagerly awaiting their haircut by Jason Bailey, an already familiar face on Southbourne's barbershop scene.

Mr Barber, Southbourne

Having worked in the village's barbershops for eight and a half years, Jason has collected a loyal following. But for the first-time customer, the parlour itself seals the deal. Vintage decor reflects a bygone era of well-groomed gentlemen. Chandeliers hang high from the ceiling, photographs from Bournemouth's history adorn the walls, and a bookshelf is lined with aged titles, including a guide to gentlemanly etiquette. This is a barbershop with spirit, and one I would recommend any man in Bournemouth to visit.
