Little London Barber Shop

Posted by Staff / Posted on May 21, 2011

little london barber shopLittle London Barber Shop, true to the name, is a little slice of ol' Blighty in the east end, with two of three barbers on staff (including owner Nigel) hailing from Britain. But you don't have to be British to go there - in fact, their celebrity clientele includes UFC fighters and sports anchors. Cuts for kids and grownups are $21, and shaves cost $30.

Took my son here and the staff were friendly and I think it was the best haircut my son has ever received! Will be bringing my whole family here from now on!! Great experience!

I vote this shop #1, best shop i'v ever been too, good price, good fun environment, tv set up with music goin to mellow you out, wait time is very short, cool attitudes even after they had a long hard night before the next work day!!

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
Mr. McDoogle / December 19, 2012 at 09:41 am
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!
Ron / May 10, 2013 at 07:56 pm
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.
Hugh / October 3, 2013 at 07:19 am
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.
geoffX / January 30, 2014 at 08:18 pm
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.
Nick / March 21, 2014 at 03:57 pm
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".
RS replying to a comment from Nick / March 29, 2014 at 09:07 am
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!
Dimitrios Tsianos / April 15, 2014 at 07:13 pm
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!
Jimmy M / April 15, 2014 at 09:11 pm
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.
Alex / April 16, 2014 at 05:43 pm
I moved to the east end a couple years ago and it took me a while to find a great barbershop. Look no further, Little London has TVs with soccer, a little BB King in the morning and Ministry of Sound in the afternoon. Great spot, highly recommended, and at $14 for a great haircut, a steal.

Get there early, always a lineup of guys waiting.
Angelo / April 17, 2014 at 10:30 pm
Been coming to little London for 7 years and I will coming for as long as I can. Nigel is the best around he is one talented barber no one like him. Best barber and barber shop around. The vibe is good the music is good and the banter is great!!
Farouk (the magician) / April 18, 2014 at 09:57 am
Since Nigel opened the doors to Little London Barber shop I have never left his chair,I frequently go for a cut at least twice a month (sometimes when I don't even need a cut). The atmosphere is incredible, conversations with great hosts Nigel, Tino and Paula makes for a pleasurable visit. The shop puts on an amazing vibe with some tunes in the background or a soccer match on the tube, never a dull moment when waiting.Very impressive works from the shop, Nigel has executed my haircut with precision and finesse every time. Well done by the crew at Little London and hats off to Nigel
Tom / April 19, 2014 at 11:55 pm
I have been here for over 5 years, this barber shop is amazing. Nigel and his staff not only make you feel welcomed but they do an amazing job in cutting hair. Amazing atmosphere, great conversation with everyone. I go to this barber shop every 3 weeks and every time i go its been an amazing experience. If you have kids or even to adults they do an amazing job, very kid friendly !! Also, parking right in front. Highly recommend the barber shop to all my friends and family and they love it

Nigel is the best barber in Toronto!! Not only do I get a great shave but he makes me feel like one of the family! I've been coming in for over 3 years now and have never had any bad service.
Kristina / April 22, 2014 at 09:58 am
Thank you Nigel!!!! My 3.5 year old son was terrified of getting his haircut but Nigel made his experience one he will never forget! Not only did my son feel like one of the "big boys" but he smiled all the way home cause his cut looked amazing. Great job!!

Nigel is awesome... The cut is always "spot-on" and works with you to understand exactly what you want or with suggestions... Its a great cut, with good talk and good times... Without question its "GREAT" value!
KR / April 22, 2014 at 02:48 pm

Stefan / May 13, 2014 at 12:58 pm
Great barber shop. Been going here for the last 4 years and have always enjoyed my experience. The atmosphere is good and the cuts are superb. Nigel is always up to chat and is always fun.
tony maravelias / May 14, 2014 at 08:52 pm
Im one of his first loyal customers. I recomend him to everyone. Best damn barber shop in this end of the city. Wouldn't think of going any place else.
Arbo / May 15, 2014 at 02:43 pm
The best barber in town... Its always a great haircut when nigels around... Whos around ;)
Matt / June 2, 2014 at 07:48 pm
Friendly easy going barbers that make you feel at home. Best place to get a cut in toronto...i've been going here for 7 years and every cut has been perfect
Sam / June 9, 2014 at 01:53 am
I've been to plenty of fancy hair salons and such....but I've made this place my staple. Excellent staff. Nigel even threw me a free straight edge razor and a few blades last time to take care of the hair line between haircuts. And of course....the atmosphere is super relaxed. My best haircutting experiences in Toronto thus far!
Boro / June 11, 2014 at 09:55 pm
Simple the best!
Eneo / June 28, 2014 at 07:57 pm
Phenomenal shop, great hair cuts and a more than uplifting atmosphere. Wouldn't go any place else for a haircut.
Nick / July 30, 2014 at 11:28 am
I've been going to LLBS for almost a year now and makes me realize that my whole life i should've been coming here. Aside from always giving me a good cut, Nigel and the team are great people, and they will never steer you wrong
James / August 4, 2014 at 07:32 pm
Been going to LLB for the past 6 years the BEST shop around Nigel and crew give great cuts and are always a laugh. will be going for years to come.
Bryan / August 6, 2014 at 05:16 pm
That feeling when you finally find a good barbershop!

I've been searching for a new shop to call home for 3 months now. My old guy retired which left me with no where to go. After a few trial by fire visits to other shops (not a good look) I finally heard about Little London.

If you are looking for a no bs barbershop to keep your fade looking tight than this is the place for you. Nigel, the owner, is a true gentlemen who I could tell takes bride in his work This is made even more apparent by the line of 10+ guys waiting for his chair at any given moment.

I was fortunate enough to have a seat in Teddy's chair and needless to say he did an exceptional job. Finally I can take my hat off and proudly rock my new cut!

Thanks Little London, you now have a new lifer!

Jorgo / February 5, 2015 at 05:12 pm
Little London is my spot for a haircut. My only complaint is the ear-splitting house music that plays non-stop. I like the music, but one genre at top volume grows pretty old when you're waiting 90 minutes to get a cut on a Saturday morning.
Alvin / March 28, 2015 at 01:12 pm
Little London Barbershop in my opinion is one of if not the best barbershops in the entire city. I have been going there for a little bit over the year and have never received a bad haircut, and I can tell you that i'm not the only one from the amount of business they have right when they open. The amount of times I get complimented on my haircut even a week after is ridiculous, and it is all due to the hard work of Nigel and is band of barbers. I even have recommended some friends here and they all love it, but only the closest friends because I must have the dopest haircut in the group. This place is great because you can just come in sit, wait and receive one of the best cuts ever. None of this "appointment" bullshit, but I can guarantee if they did you'd be waiting over a year to get your haircut from Nigel. He's simply the best.
