Shotgun Barbers

Bristol | Clifton | | 10/04/2017

Outstanding hairdresser in Bristol’s student epicentre, Cotham.

Does anyone resent how it’s seen as normal to pay upwards of fifty quid for a women’s cut and blow dry? These prices have driven me in the last few years have my hair cut by my mother, with varying degrees of success. I can safely say that Shotgun provided me with the best haircut I have had in recent years, and at only £19 it was a pretty slammin’ bargain.

Students get an additional 25% off the already highly reasonable prices before 5pm. And not only are they affordable, this salon in also undeniably cool. The string lights, graphic prints and LP sleeves lining the walls combined with an excellently curated vinyl playlists coming from a decks in the corner of the room means it is highly an enjoyable place to sit while you wait for someone to do your hair. Seeing as the salon provides haircuts on a drop-in basis only, you might be waiting a while if you come at a busy time. But it is worth the wait.

The hairdressers themselves are suitably trendy to match the décor, but also extremely friendly. While I was having my hair cut we talked about Berlin Techno (our mutual dislike of it, might I add) and how much we loved our matching Van trainers. A bit of a cliché, I know… But altogether an experience which I am already looking forward to repeating.
