Living in the greatest city in the world can be exhausting at times, which is why we've teamed up with Hertz to give you the chance to win a week-long getaway in a European destination of your choice. The prize includes return flights, seven night’s accommodation, breakfast each morning and £500 spending money, plus a Hertz hire car, so the hardest decision you'll have to make is deciding where to go.
Ted's Grooming Room Regent Street
This central London branch of the slick Turkish barber chain offers the usual drop-in cuts, wet shaves and hot towels, but you can also book in to the 'By Appointment Only Lounge' for something a little more special. Decorated with vintage medical equipment to reflect the area's background, the Mortimer Street boasts a bar designed by Looking Glass Cocktail Club and offers the 'Cut a Dash with Ted' treatment – essentially the barbershop full works. The barbers here mean business; there's no idle nattering about holiday plans as they expertly shape beards and style your hair into traditional but adaptable styles. What really gives the booked-in treatments the edge (pun intended) is the ear hair burning and the hot towel treatment. There aren't that many places in London you can have your fuzz removed with fire, after all. The hour-long session is a hefty £75, so you need to care more about your look than your bank statement, but at the end of it you'll look a million bucks, so what goes around comes around.
