The Dapper Man is a hybrid retail concept, bridging the gap between a male barber shop and ladies hair salon in London. They specialise in classic grooming services, from scissor and clipper cuts to hot towel shaves, as well as more cutting-edge procedures in The Dapper Aesthetics Clinic, like teeth whitening, botox, fillers, and fat freezing. The money raised will go towards expanding these services, purchasing machinery for laser hair removal.

Combining classic barbershop quality with modern services

The Dapper Man, conveniently located in Ealing Broadway, is a high-end salon specialising in male grooming. We were established in 2015 with the aim of combining the classic services of a barbershop with the modern luxury of a unisex hair salon. Our treatments are performed by qualified and experienced barbers, stylists, and therapists, making your visit as pleasurable as possible as you walk out looking your best. This ranges from traditional haircuts and colour, hot towel shaves, to the latest treatments such as Brazilian Keratin for unruly hair. We also offer soothing massages, facials, waxing, and manicures-pedicures for optimal indulgence.

Over time, we've grown and increased our services to include The Dapper Aesthetics Clinic. This is aimed at men and women who wish to remedy problem areas in a non-surgical way that has quick and proven results. This includes permanent laser hair removal, teeth whitening, and facial procedures such as botox, all carried out by medical professionals. We have recently ventured into fat freezing, using CoolTech equipment. This new technology delivers visible results after just 15 days, with only 1-3 treatments required.

We're at the forefront of bringing this kind of technology into the salon market and see this as a great opportunity. We will use the funds raised to purchase the machinery we currently lease, particularly our laser hair removal equipment, enabling us to have a more stable return. In turn, we can continue to expand our business and deliver our excellent services with plans to open further locations.
