Open Barbers

Open Barbers is a hairdressing service welcoming people of all/no genders and sexualities, with any hair length and type. As a not-for-profit Social Enterprise our prices are on a sliding scale, where you pay what you can afford starting at £5.

Everyone is welcome! We specialise in friendly, attentive and personalised services, and we have lots of experience cutting hair free from gender stereotypes. We’re aware that entering salons/barbers can generate various anxieties and challenges and we are continuously looking to be as adaptable and welcoming as we can. We offer home visits to those in London who are unable to visit our salon.

Our salon space is open to visitors with free wifi, refreshments and a ‘zine library. We also host a range of collaborators who deliver additional services and events.
