Ted’s Grooming Room Canary Wharf
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
With its gleaming towers, spotless plazas and marble-walled shopping malls, Canary Wharf isn’t a place for the scruffy. Good job, then, that a new branch of Ted’s Grooming Room has recently opened in the shopping centre at Churchill Place.
The latest addition to Ted Baker’s grooming chain brings its London locations to a round dozen. These are Turkish barbershops through-and-through; they don’t just tend to your locks, but send you out into the world fresher, smarter and, well, a lot less hairy. Treatments range from a standard cut (£28.50) to additional services like beard trims, eyebrow threading and ear flaming (a lit swab is sent into your ears to burn all those little hairs away – don’t say you haven’t been warned). I got the ‘Full Ted Service’ (£48.50). Not only did this get me a haircut so neat that, to quote Grampa Simpson, ‘you could set your watch to it’, but also an eyebrow trim, a hot towel cutthroat razor shave, a good dousing in cologne and a thorough pummeling of my arms and shoulders. Rest easy, gents of Canary Wharf: you can go about your high-powered business and always be sure of looking the part.
