The BarberBarber Revolution: BarberBarber Opens Unique Flagship London Store

After great success in Ireland and conquering the North, multi award-winning barber Johnny BaBa is set to storm London, with the opening of the unique flagship barber shop BarberBarber in legendary Spitalfields Market on 15th October 2015.


True to the iconic song by James Brown, BarberBarber is strictly a man’s world, providing bespoke men’s hair cutting and traditional cut throat close shaves.

Limerick-born Johnny’s traditional - and sometimes controversial - men-only door policy has already created a big noise and generated huge customer loyalty up North at his Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds shops. This policy will stand firm for London.


When the traditional barbershop experience meets contemporary technical men’s hair cutting and styling you have BarberBarber; a modern-day ‘Super Barber’.

With technical excellence as his trademark, Johnny is taking men's barbering to the next level. His forthcoming, inaugural MENtal men’s hair collection - recently showcased at the Fellowship For British Hairdressing Member’s Night to wide acclaim - is, much like Johnny himself, masculine, uncompromising and anti establishment.

Supplementing Johnny’s pure talent are big-name allies who’ve bought into Barber Barber and brought over 50 years’ of top-flight experience to the table. Helping Johnny hone the future vision of the brand is session stylist and friend Dale Ted Watkins, who has been appointed Education Director of the Barber Barber group. This will ensure ongoing innovation and impeccable standards going forward.

Furthermore, Johnny’s MENtal collection was impeccably photographed by creative genius Andy Gilbert.

Says Johnny, 36, who started working in a Limerick barber’s shop aged 11 sweeping floors:

“I’ve dreamt of having a London shop since I was a small boy. Now that dream is a reality. London is a world centre and I need to be there for my brand to be taken seriously. Next stop: world domination”.

So now Johnny is fully tooled-up for London – but is London ready for him?
