So I got invited to go along to the newly opened, Ted’s Grooming Room in Mayfair London at the beginning of last week. Looking rugged, I was preparing for an hour of pampering fit to turn my tramp-ish style into a more elegant, refined look ready for an important month ahead. Not really knowing much about these new “Ted Grooming Rooms”, I was excited about the experience I was about to receive.
The gift was a service called “The Full Ted Service” and they like to define it as this: “An indulgence every man should treat himself to, but be warned: our unique service is addictive. With everything thrown in, you can experience the best in traditional Turkish barbering.”
This particular service consists of a wet cut to your specification, along with a traditional Turkish shave – including your ears being flamed – all rounded off with an invigorating hot towel, face cleanse and massage. Not researching too much into the service and Ted’s Grooming Room itself, what I received was well above expectation, with the quality also being a very high standard.
Being to Turkey twice already this year, I knew a tiny bit about the history of Turkish barbering and the traditional Turkish shave. However, the quality difference between my experiences in Turkey to the experience at Ted’s Grooming Room was incomparable. Being made to feel at home, my blazer was hung up by one of the barbers, I was then offered a drink along with a traditional Turkish coffee – again all adding to the experience.
The staff were extremely friendly, and the products they used were amazing. Using a variety of products from King of Shaves, and a mixture of Ted Baker grooming products, I was extremely happy with the end product. Price was another thing that caught my eye, with highly affordable services you wouldn’t dream of seeing elsewhere in Mayfair.
Overall FashionBeans definitely recommend not only the service provided at Ted’s Grooming Rooms, but also some of the products they’re releasing exclusive to Boots. Find out more about Ted’s Grooming Rooms at Ted’s Grooming Room.
