Specialising in cutting, colouring and styling hair (men and women) and gentlemen’s grooming, Naz owns two elegant adjoining salons on Wandsworth Bridge Road. ‘Every new client is different, so we take the time and trouble to chat and get to know them,’ he continues. ‘Then we can decide what approach to follow and, of course, we’re happy to give advice and make suggestions.
The gentlemen’s grooming services include haircuts, beard and moustache trimming and Naz’s signature luxury hot towel shave. ‘We cleanse, exfoliate and treat the skin before providing an outstanding shave with a straight razor,’ explains Naz. ‘I think it’s the best traditional shave in London.’
One of the hallmarks of the business is impeccable customer service. Naz offers complementary drinks and, thanks to the Bonbon Café, clients can also order snacks, breakfasts and lunches. Naz is delighted that since the grooming salon opened his female customers have brought along their partners. ‘We’ve become a focal point in the local community,’ he says. ‘Many people now come as families and we know them all. That’s lovely.’ – Naz Zeneldeen
