Handsome Jacks Barber - Glasgow | Review

Handsome Jacks Barber  Glasgow
As you may of all noticed a couple of months ago over on my social media that I decided to get my shoulder-length hair cut into a short pixie cut. The main reason I wanted to get my hair cut short was to start afresh with my hair as my hair previously had a lot of bleach damage along with lots of hair dye build-up, so I decided for a new hairstyle and to eventually get my hair back blonde. 

I previously heard of Handsome Jacks Barbers in Shawlands, Glasgow by simply walking past it on the way to the gum and also my brother in law. He gets his hair cut their every few months from there and when he does it looks on point so that's how I decided to go give them a try to cut my hair short and start anew.

I was a little nervous phoning because some barbers are gentlemen only but phoning here, they were perfectly polite and more than happy to book me in for a hair appointment.  I got an appointment for the following day. The second time I got a haircut, it was the same day.

When it came to my appointment time I wasn't waiting very long in their very comfortable chesterfield sofa before it was my turn to take my seat in the ever so comfy barber's chair. Alex asked what style i was after and i showed him on my phone and he got to work cutting off my long hair. It sure took some time because my hair is very thick and combined with being long, it took a little bit of time. While he was cutting my hair we had a really good chat about so many things including us both being northern ( both moving to Glasgow) Also recommending some great films and series to watch on Netflix/amazon prime, now I'm addicted to watching Lucifer lol!

The time and detail went into my hair, I wasn't rushed and I was asked if I was 100% happy and to come back if i wasn't happy with anything, I felt very happy with the results and the staff were just wonderful, making the experience so much better. 

Below is a picture a few days before I dyed my hair black and while it's long. The next picture is me after I've come home from the barbers, doesn't my hair look fabulous?

I have had my hair cut twice now and honestly, I can say they make the experience so much better as they have lots of things to talk about, know what they are doing when it comes to hair and also the vibes of the place are brilliant too.

I love the decor here as it has retro vibes with a hint of modern style with its movie, skater and bright lighting. The retro side is fab with its drinks, sofa and bits and bobs.

Handsome Jack's has 3 locations in Glasgow. One is in Shawlands another in  Paisley and one I recently went to in which recently opened a couple of weeks ago in Dennistoun

  1. Nice place, I think the place looks clean and nice. I like the white and black colors. When the barbers knows what they do, don't have to worry.
