Where to get a beard trim in London?

Where can you get a good beard and moustache trim/style in London that isn't too expensive?

I've just grow out a beard and fancied getting a pro job done to make it look good. I don't quite want to pay for an expensive gentleman's place though.

FWIW, I am young with long hair. But I don't want an overly modish facial hairstyle, just to look like a good job.

Any decent barber shop will probably do a beard trim for about £5-15. I go to one on Leather Lane near Hatton Garden (not for a beard trim, but it's on their list of services).

That's a good point. I wonder if anyone can recommend anyone who's good at beards though. When I used to go to barbers it was extremely hit and miss, and it seems that even the good ones might not get much practice with different beard styles.

I cannot vouch for them, but these people do a beard trim for £6 including complimentary drink (a real drink apparently, not just an instant coffee). The link is to the Wimbledon branch, but they also operate inside Moss Bros in Covent Garden.

Ah, yeah, I've seen them when I've been in there hiring evening dress. They looked pretty swank (straight razors, hot towels and all that), so maybe give them a go, especially if it's £6.

Ooh...gotta be worth a try. Cheers Lads, I'll try and remember to post here if they're good.
