Ted Baker London - Ted's Grooming Room

A Close Shave In Istanbul

The art of barbering is a long-standing Turkish tradition, dating back to the time of the Efes and Ottoman Empire. Now, Ted isn’t quite that old, but he is a well-travelled gent. In fact, it was while having a wander through the backstreets of Istanbul that he discovered the joys of letting a man attack him with a razor.

Understandably apprehensive, he soon relaxed when the history of their craft was explained. You see, Turkish barbering is a skill that’s handed down from generation to generation and a master barber only passes on his title (and razor) to his apprentice after many years of training – which is nice to know.

Smothered in hot towels, splashed with astringent lemon cologne and given a full face massage, Ted found the entire experience incredibly relaxing (not to mention the closest shave he’d ever had) and without a moment’s hesitation decided to bring the experience to the UK and open Ted’s Grooming Room. After all, he knew plenty of gents who like things trim and proper.
