It can boast of names like Oscar Wilde, Charles Dickens, Lord Byron, Frank Sinatra, Winston Churchill, Alfred Hitchcock and Laurence Olivier among few of their renowned clients. 

It is one of the oldest barber shops in the world (it began in 1805) and now It has opened its proud doors in Mumbai to the sheer pleasure and indulgence of men who are particular about their grooming.

So what do you expect on the menu here where men with glorious past and history have walked in for their personal grooming? You will find The Royal Shave, A Royal Haircut, Classic Shave and Haircut, other hair treatments, manicure & pedicure, head massage, facial among many more with a complimentary shoe shine with every visit.

That’s not all, you can also shop for lifestyle and grooming products, which include shaving travel kits, exclusive perfumes and colognes, bath and body products. Along with this they will retail exclusive hand-made cufflinks, some of the finest shoes from England, and other exclusive leather.

T&H is also located in Singapore, Chicago, Las Vegas, Canada, China & Malaysia apart from London.

Krishna Gupta, Managing Director, Lloyds Luxuries Ltd said, “I take pride in representing Truefitt & Hill, a barber shop with inimitable expertise and legacy of many decades. I am confident of this venture to be a successful one as I see an unexplored territory in Men’s grooming.”

Istayak Ansari, Director, Lloyds Luxuries Ltd also stated, “Truefitt and Hill will be the first high end international barber shop in India. The services and facilities offered will be at par with global standards with experienced and well trained staff to offer unparalleled services."

Their ambitious future plan includes launching 200 plus outlets across 75 plus cities while planning to open five more salons within this year in Mumbai followed by all major tier 1 and tier 2 cities in India.
