It’s a close shave for our man Olley at a Turkish barbers on Westside

What used to be a short-back and sides is now a trim, cut-throat shave, hot towel and face massage. Westside business leader MIKE OLLEY reports on his experience at the First Class Turkish Barbers at Five Ways.

Banking and hospitality are all part of Westside, and yet also a shave and a haircut are readily available.

I popped into the First Class Turkish Barbers on Islington Row by Five Ways the other day for a swift spruce up. Wow! What an experience!

I was impressed with the attention to detail and impeccable high levels of hygiene given by my barber.

Watch the latest Olley’s Oracle vlog here:

A heavy trim followed by a cut-throat shave. Arguably the closest shave you can get. I took the hot towel option. Followed by a swift face massage to bring out the best in me … perhaps that massage should have been a tad longer!

I couldn’t understand why a Turkish Barber wouldn’t take Turkish Lira, yet happily I also had great British pounds.

The cost? In the low twenties for my close shave, trim and a few other options. Great value.

I will be back.
