See where it all began and why we believe Jacks is number one

A Big Year for Jacks

A big year for Jacks! After being nominated for 10 different awards, from Male Grooming Specialist to Men’s Hairdresser of the year and Best New Hair product, we finally took home the big one, winning Male Grooming Salon of the year at the British Hairdressing Business Awards 2017! In 2017 we have also teamed up with cool surfer style clothing brand Rittz and added 3 new stores to the Jacks family – Clapham Junction, Richmond and Camberley.

A Big Year for Partnerships

Jacks of London opened its doors in Hampshire this year with a new store in the heart of Southampton. We also teamed up with clothing brands The Idleman and Twinzz on different projects as well as launching our big Euros Campaign fronted up by our exciting new brand ambassador England Goalie, Jack Butland. We also became the official barbers for The Aegon Championships at the Queens Club London.

20 Years of Jacks

A milestone year for Jacks, with celebrations taking place for our 20th year in business.  To mark the occasion, we entered into an exciting new partnership with England and Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland as well as launching our very own range of haircare products ‘The True Gent’ Range.

Lazy Jacks

To add to our customer offering, this Summer we stocked our fridges full of Lazy Jacks Cider launching a new partnership with this cool drinks brand. A big hit with our customers!

Jacks is Born!

Building on the success of razors this was the year of the big re-brand! The Wimbledon store was closed for 2 weeks while a full refurbishment process took place. The brand was re-launched and Jacks of London ‘The Original Modern Barber’ was born. Exciting times!

Sue Whitehead

Sue Whitehead, founder of Jacks of London, saw a gap in the male grooming market and launched a unique barbershop experience called Razors in a residential area of Surrey. Sue had worked as a ladies hairdresser for many years and owned 2 successful salons. However, in 1994 Sue noticed a growing trend in the area of men’s grooming that she wanted to explore further. She had a clear idea of how her barbershops would look: classic with a mix of contemporary, big stores creating a relaxed and comfortable feel for the male only clientele.
