Little London Barber Shop

Posted by Staff / Posted on May 21, 2011

Little London TorontoLittle London Barber Shop, complete with Union Jack and all, strikes me as the barbershop where Donlanders come to spill their secrets. Owner Nigel was born and raised in London and came to Toronto to open his no-frills shop. Little London offer men's cuts at $15, women's cuts and style at $40, and peanuts from a dispenser near the front door. Glad to report: no signs of Royal Wedding memorabilia.

The cut the barber gave me was Ok. but nothing great. The music was very loud. It wasn't a relaxing experience and I will not go back. I think it's good place for teens.

Music is too loud - I couldn't hear what they were saying. The haircut was so-so. Worth $15 but not more.

I guess it's a great place to bring your kids/teens.

I disagree with the two comments above which you can see are the same person. The vibe is great the haircuts are amazing and i think for the value of the price per haircut its a steal.!!! way to go Little London Barbershop!I will definitely be coming back for myself and my boy.

First time getting clipped here. Great haircut, good price, very knowledgable. I'm a geezer too and I enjoyed the environment. Miles above anything you can get at Supercuts for a lesser price. I'll definetley be going back on a regular basis.

Best barber shop In toronto , will be going there for my haircut always

Wonderful place, always a positive vibe with great selection of music, Mr. Nigel is a perfectionist and always makes sure that he is satisfied with the way he cut your hair. The staff is friendly and great service all around radiating passion for their work and you will always see people smiling and laughing!

Would normally go to Crow's Nest but as I was desperate for a haircut and the usual wait for an appointment for the former is 5 days, I tried out Little London. End result: I was pretty pleased. Haircut was great, as is the price (FYI, price of men's cut is now $16 -- still not too shabby). Nigel, the owner, is a great guy, a good laugh, and good at his trade. I'd recommend.

Good haircuts but they say they open at 9 AM and are NEVER there on time. For those of us who have business to attend to afterwards, this is inexcusable. When asked why he doesn't set his hours to start at 9:30 AM if that's when he's going to show up, he responds "because then I would be there at 10:00". If you don't like hip-hop or trance/dance music, avoid - the music is loud - not a traditional barber shop by any means. I just want to get a good cut, get in and out quick - not have my head pounded by bass.

Gentle East York feel. Loud boom box, but they lower it if you ask. Friendly barbers into their work, good customer mix - even the grump who despised me for shunning credit cards [capitalist utensil!]. Cool price - & [most importantly] a 1st-rate cut, no dawdling but not the Topcut 10-min. assembly line either. DOWNSIDE: by rating a 9.5 out of 10, it could mean rising wait-times in future . . . still, they earned it.

Both guys, Nigel and Tino, are very rude and they don't care about customers. Just returned from there. I've waited in line for an hour for Tino. As I was going to the chair, after the previous client had left, he suddenly stooped me and I said:"I don't have time, I have to go". Just like that. Then, by general rule, I should turn to Nigel as soon as he finishes with another client. But when it was my turn, Nigel rejected me saying, that "there is another guy", who arrived 20-30 min after me. So, basically they don't warn you about their plans and they may give preference to their "favourtes".

I'm not sure what happened with Nick, but I've never known Nigel and Tino to be anything but friendly and I've been going there for a couple of years now. If anything, they are a bit too friendly because all the chit chat with clients contributes to longer wait times when they are really busy. LOL

The lady that works there part time (Paula? Not sure if I have the name right) is fantastic too. You can easily by-pass others in line when she's working because so many of the guys going there are waiting for Nigel specifically, or prefer not to get their hair cut by a woman. However, she does a fantastic job every time.

Little London Barber Shop does a phenomenal job at what they do. Nigel's well known and respected in the community of East York, particularly for giving excellent haircuts and providing phenomenal service. I've reccomended Little London to every friend I have, and none have turned back ever since. The friendly yet professional atmosphere that is provided by Little London simply can't be beaten. If your looking for a great haircut, this is the place to go.

Growing up I had one barber. When he decided to retire I was in shock. Didn't know where to go. A friend recommended me to The Little London Barber Shop. All I remember is walking in and having a seat in the barber chair. That's all it took for me to get hooked. I've been going there every other week for the past 7 years. Nigel is best at what he does. Cutting hair while making friends. Highly recommend your next hair cut, should be at The Little London Barber Shop.
Well worth the experience!

From the moment you walk in Nigel makes you feel at home. Old school skills with a new vibe. My son loves his haircuts and so do I. Always great to reminisce and share old school stories with ya Nigel. Keep up the great work!

I have been a client of the Little London Barber Shop for several years. Easily one of the best places in Toronto. The level of service is superb! You are always made to feel welcome. It is obvious the team loves what they do. Quality work that is well above the price point. Quality people that care about their client base. 5 stars.
