‘The Broadgate..making waves in the world of male grooming!’
Have you heard of The Broadgate Club? Perhaps not but it’s sure making waves in the world of male grooming! Smack bang in the middle of Londons fast paced business district it’s the stylish home of one of the three (London based) Charles Worthington salons. If the word ‘salon’ itself is enough to make your hairs bristle…relax! Here the needs of busy business men are the firm focus, which means a new menu of luxury men’s treatments are on offer which range from a quick tidy up to a full wash and cut.
In my case it was obvious that I was receiving a distinctly tailor made service. At first Art Team Director Marc Trinder asked me how I normally styled my hair, he then explained how the shape of my face would influence the cut he gave me. We agreed to err on the side of caution and tidy up my current crop by shaping my face with Babyliss Pro Clippers, bringing in the sides tighter with a 1.5 cut blending out to a 3.
Throw in one of the best head massages I’ve ever had and a wash with quality Kérastase Exfoliating Shampoo (to combat my slightly dry scalp) and a moisturising conditioner and I was soon beaming. Marc finished my look by chopping a little off the top, keeping some volume at the front and I was left with my own mini Shard, structurally held together with L’Oreal Professional Homme Clay.
What’s more with a male member’s club and shaving services on the cards The Broadgate Club seems all set to be the swiss army knife of salons.
