Our Philosophy

Just like our customers, every haircut we give is unique. We believe in custom cuts and opposed to replicas, with individual style shining through. That being said we also believe in creating a natural cut, one that speaks of you personally and isnt simply creative for creatives sake. We consider ourselves students of hair, forever learning and evolving our portfolio and knowledge. We invite advice and much as we are happy to guide our clients, combining our knowledge of cutting with their knowledge of their own hair, to create something extraordinary. The perfect style is one that encapsulates the Total Look of the wearer, something all Gentlemans Relish barbers have experience in unveiling.

Our History

Gentlemans Relish was established in 1990 by Mens Hairdressing Champion, Paul Jackson. His ambition is to develop a series of salons for men who crave contemporary cutting and styling, but not at the expense of traditional values. He feels that Gentlemans Relish should heighten the experience of having a haircut; the anticipation, the excitement and the subsequent joy at the result. Initially founded in Colchester, Essex, Paul is passionate about expanding the Gentlemans Relish brand across the UK, and aims to share his unique approach to styling with a national audience.

Our Treatments

Our commitment to developing a Total Look for our clients enables us to deliver a range of services across the grooming spectrum, and ensures that cutting edge, sophisticated finish our clients deserve. From a simple wash, cut and finish, to a straight razor shave and moustache grooming, we cater for every style across every genre.

To compliment the talent of our barbers, we also retail and use luxury male grooming products, as well as boast state-of-the-art Japanese forward-facing wash stations in our salon. Everything found in the Gentlemans Relish salon has been selected to enhance the experience for the client, and every cut has been chosen with individuality in mind.
