Jamie’s London salon is close to Olympia and Holland Park, just off Holland Road.
I genuinely loved my visit, as I am looking for class and distinction for Gentlemens grooming, and being a perfectionist and he got it right.
Without a shadow of doubt this was the best cut I had received, certainly for over 20 years.
I have receding hair but he finished everything really well, making it look very smart.

1 – Standard of Service – Jamie is genuinely a true professional. I say this as a person who is semi balding but needs a good haircut. I can safely say though I like to into hairdressers I equally feel conscious of people thinking “whats he doing here, he has not really got much hair to cut”.
You get none of this from Jamie, he understands the need to maintain a healthy scalp and makes sure that the remaining hair looks as smart as possible.
2 – Description of Product/Service – (information and quality of service, ingredients) –
Whats entailed ….
Coat taken, seat taken Jamie discusses what’s needed which in my case are scalp treatments, choice between scissors or clippers, grading the hair and more.
All in all the scalp treatment, which invigorated the scalp and cut I think took just under and hour.
And he remembers to cut off all the whispy bits……
He very nicely graded the hair, which made the cut a true fit for my face.
