A Manchester Barbers like no other

We felt for some time that there was a clear gap in the market for a male-exclusive barbers & wellness centre, and we believe we have created the perfect response to that demand with the opening of Manchester’s first, all-in-one grooming venue right in the heart of the city. 

When we started planning, we had many discussions about the design and how we could create a real point of difference from any other barber shop in the region. The space had to be unique, and our clients needed to feel at home with our creation from the moment they entered.   

KIng Street 360 Tour

We handed over the reins to our very own in-design team who are all about creating amazing spaces & experiences as we’ve already seen with many of our other brands. Our location on Manchester’s iconic King Street was the perfect spot known for its festivals, live music and markets and now, we’re adding grooming to that mix. 

Gareth Rowan-Dylan, Managing Director of King Street Grooming, said: “We are delighted with the end result of King Street Grooming, the first of its kind in Manchester. This unique male experience bridges a gap that’s been missing in the market, which allows men to be pampered in a masculine and comforting environment, all on Manchester aptly named King Street. With over 100 5-star reviews already, we have been reaffirmed by our customers that what we created, is truly what they’ve been waiting for.”  

Our work on KSG took over 6 months and you can take a look at our creation coming together below: 

The Barbershop

Downstairs is home to our barbershop floor. The brand will fuse that of a traditional barber with a modern twist. The striking venue has a dark materials palette, including classic references such as feature wall shelving and fluted glass screens. This, paired with modern material accents and lighting features, gives the space an edge and an unmistakably cool identity. 

The Treatment Floor 

Upstairs we have 3 treatment rooms where we offer facials, skin treatments, waxing & plenty more. This is a tranquil space with a natural materials palette with warm subtle lighting features, planting and soft furnishings that set the treatment room’s tone for wellness.  

The end result has exceeded all the expectations of not just our team, but more importantly our clients, with 5-star reviews rolling in and a calendar that is now booked out daily, showing the immense hard work of the King Street Grooming team.
