A Winning Barber

Matthew Steeples visits Chelsea barber Hak Tevfik of Haks Oscar


Chelsea’s World’s End used to be the haunt of the likes of the gangster and alleged lover of the late Princess Margaret, John Bindon. Now, in an age when the cast of an E4 reality show hang out at Bluebird, it’s an altogether different place.


A Winning Barber – Hak’s Oscar, 319 Kings Road, London, SW3 5EP – Gentleman’s grooming


In a pint-sized shop there, just before the kink in the Kings Road, master barber Hak Tevfik has set up a gentleman’s hair and shaving salon that looks as if it could be on the set of either Peaky Blinders or Ripper Street. It features dark wooden walls and a traditional barber’s chair and is a setting in which any man would feel perfectly comfortable.


The Central Winner of Barber of the Year at The London Hair & Beauty Awards 2016 last week, Haks Oscar is an emporium where gents get simple yet superbly executed haircuts and shaves. It has been described as “genius” by Made in Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews and visited by others including professional boxers Barry McGuigan MBE and Carl Frampton MBE.


A hair cut including a shampoo wash, cut, rinse, tonic application; head, neck and should massage; grooming with ocean salt; finishing with hair products and hand pummel ending with manicure buffing is priced at £45.



Haks Oscar, 319 Kings Road, London, SW3 5EP. Telephone: +44 (0) 20 7751 4394.
