There are a lot of Tunbridge Wells barbers. In fact, it feels almost like a new barbershop opens every other week!

But which one is the best barbers in Tunbridge Wells? Well, I’ve been to most of them. Here are my thoughts.

The Best Barbers in Tunbridge Wells

In my opinion, these are the best five barbers in Tunbridge Wells…

  1. Strops Barbers
  2. Fargs Barbers
  3. Max Oliver Men’s Hair
  4. A Few Good Men Barbers
  5. Prestige Barbers

1. Strops Barbers

Strops started off in Crowborough. They opened up shop in Tunbridge Wells (8 Castle Street) in February 2018. I’ve been going ever since.

It’s £21 for a 30-minute haircut or £23 for a 45-minute skin fade. And you can book in advance via the Booksy app – so no waiting around.

I get my hair cut by Yogi (Olly Yeoman) but honestly, all their barbers are decent.

2. Fargs Barbers

I used to always go to Fargs (before Strops opened). The only reason I moved to Strops was because it opened virtually next door to where I live!

Like Strops, Fargs has more than one location. It started in Tunbridge Wells (10 Camden Road) before opening further shops in Tonbridge and Maidstone.

It’s £18.50 for a walk-in men’s cut or you’ve got the option of booking an appointment for an additional £2.

3. Max Oliver Men’s Hair

I’ve only been to Max Oliver once but Josh did a very decent job giving me a skin fade before our Pipehouse Gin launch night.

Max Oliver started in Crowborough (like Strops) and then opened in Tunbridge Wells (1 Nevill Street) in 2018. It’s run by three brothers; Max, Oliver and Josh.

A gentleman’s cut and finish will cost you £25 and you can book online via Resurva.

4. A Few Good Men Barbers

A Few Good Men can be found at 62 Grosvenor Road and is run by Ram – the barber of choice of a number of my Tunbridge Wells friends.

There’s no website, no online booking, and I can’t even find any prices online (the word on the street is £16), but I know you’ll get a decent trim at Ram’s!

And on top of that, they’re open on Sundays (10am-4pm). Strops, Fargs and Max Oliver are all closed on Sundays.

5. Prestige Barbers

Lastly, how could I forget Prestige – home to my good friend Saeed!

You’ll find Prestige just up the road from Fargs (43 Camden Road) and very close to PureGym.

A haircut is just £12, they’re open 7 days a week, and you can book an appointment via Booksy!
