Being 23 and changing my hair all the time, I am very fussy with haircuts, and usually go to Pimps and Pinups in Shoreditch religiously, but having moved to the West side, thought I'd try this traditional place out. Went here a couple of weeks ago, turned up late but they didn't make much of a fuss about it. The hole store is wood panelled and sitting in the chair feels like you've been transported back in time. Was surprised to see that an older plump woman with glasses and an old fashioned floral shirt would be cutting my hair, however I was more than pleasantly surprised. She was charming, chatty, funny and it was honestly one of the best haircuts I have ever had. Cut the hair both to my specifications and also to frame my face shape perfectly. One of the rare times I have let the hairdresser style my hair with their products and genuinely walked out with amazing hair. After trying out quite a few around Mayfair, this will definitely be my new regular. Also saw Michael Palin on my way out haha!
Based on this Time Out review I made an appointment and visited. I received as terrible a haircut as you could imagine from a barbershop According to their own website: "Trumper offer a comprehensive haircutting service for all styles. At Trumper we deal with the image as an integral part of the service and will be pleased to advise on a style to suit you and advise on hair care and how to keep a style looking perfect." When I asked for advice, the haircuttter looked surprised - if not shocked and speechless - so I asked again "What would you recommend? What do you think would look good?" The response was a nonsensical giggle about something to do with the weather. (Seriously!) Foolishly, I trusted in this Time Out review and said. "This is one of the top ten barbers in London, I'll trust you. Whatever you think would look good." 15 minutes later I'm sitting there with my whole head hacked to 1.5cm, one side longer than the other and a fringe more blunt than had I gone to the chippy for a haircut and being asked, "What do you think? It's very nice." Twice more I explained 'short sides and back' and still I couldn't be more disappointed!! I now have to live with this hideous crop job for 6 weeks!! Really, quite probably least skilled and least considered haircuts I have ever seen on an man in the developed world. I can't warn you enough to avoid this place.
