5 Of The Best Barbers In NE1

Gentlemen, do not worry. We have not forgotten about you! We know how important it is to get your trim but we’ve got you covered. Here is NE1’s guide to the best barbers in the Toon.


King Koby

Called King Koby for a reason, these barbers will sure give you the royal treatment. Koby’s ‘No Ego, No Nonsense’ ethos is one to stand by. Although this establishment is one of the best in town, its business is so much more than what it appears on the outside. Their honest principles are one of the reasons for their repeat custom.

From skin fades to long haircuts and additional services that have a stand-alone charge. Whether you want the full works, a beard tidy up or a hair trim, King Koby has you sorted.


Patrick Forster

A shop designed to be a men’s sanctuary. What more do you want? Patrick Forster is a barbershop like no other. Wanting to make his clients relaxed, the down-to-earth environment is one to make anyone feel welcome. Just like chilling with your mates, you can listen to some music, chat about the footy and even fire up the Xbox! And don’t panic, Patrick's 15 years of experience as a high-end hairstylist, will leave you looking fresh if you ever want to leave the lad haven.


Mr Tilly’s

Established in 2016, this high-end barbershop combines modern and traditional values, for its very own Mr Tilly’s twist. Located in the heart of the city centre, they provide a bespoke tailored approach to every customer, in a relaxed and positive setting. If you want to shake things up and take the old school method with a new modern twist, head to Mr Tilly’s for a Hot Towel Shave.


Hoi Polloi

The award-winning barbershop with a contemporary twist. Recently winning Modern Barbers ‘Best Customer Experience’ and ‘Best Team’ awards in 2021, Hoi Polloi is undoubtedly one of the Toons favourites. Not only do they have the traditional cuts and styles, but also offer the ‘Silent Haircut’ for those who suffer from social anxiety.


Kamran’s Barber

Having various establishments across the North East, Kamran’s is one we cannot forget! The consistent, finest quality cuts at Kamran’s traditional Barbers highlights the success of the business. Whether you’re looking for a cut, shave or hair design and pattern, Kamran’s Barber is the place to be.
