The Barber Book
Explore decades of men's style as crafted and influenced from barbershop chairs around the world
With the foundations of Murdock London rooted in the grand heritage and tradition of historic barbershops, we were thrilled to hear about the release of Phaidon's all-encompassing guide to the most popular men's hairstyles of the 20th century.
Capturing the history and ongoing culture of barbering and men's hair, The Barber Book explores decades of men's style as crafted and influenced from barbershop chairs around the world.
From Crew cuts to Mohawks, Ivy Leagues to Afros, each iconic men's style has its own rooted history and ongoing story, originally represented in the book by Matteo Guarnaccia's fantastic illustrations and vintage archive photography.
These images are further supported by simple DIY tips and instructions on how to achieve each style.
Once you're all read up on the hairstyles and subcultures that have shaped mens' style for over six decades, the book's barbershop directory awaits.
A thorough listing of the world's finest barbershops - their addresses, opening hours and contact information.
We are incredibly proud to have our Murdock London at Liberty barbershop included in the United Kingdom's shortlist.
