In Bloomsbury, London, there is a small gent’s hairdresser called Gino’s. Now Gino himself is a great hairdresser and a charming fellow – in fact, most of the blokes waiting are waiting to see him.
However, as far as I am concerned the real hidden gem is Romanian born Katarina.
When Katarina cuts your hair, it is like she is treating each hair as an individual. She doesn’t just use clippers, and she doesn’t just use one pair of scissors. It seemed to me that there’s at least 5 different shaped scissors all used in different ways with multiple angles and techniques, a couple of types of clipper blades, and to top it off – a cut-throat razor to shave the edges down to perfection.
Not only that, but included in the 15 quid and prior to the haircut, she’ll spin you around in the chair and give you a damn fine hair wash, followed by a spine tingling scalp massage.
If you combine all these factors then the whole experience adds up to the best haircut experience in the world.
Please, someone else needs to experience it as well:
