Braid Barbers

The Braid name has been synonymous with quality mens and ladies hairdressing in the UK for over 40 years. Phillip Braid opened our first Birmingham store in 1970, before being approached in 1979 to launch the first unisex salon in the newly developed Milton Keynes Shopping Centre. Offering a wide range of hair, beauty and solarium services, he built up one of the biggest and busiest salons in the country with over 60 staff. After the success of our Milton Keynes salon, Phillip then opened our first London store on the exclusive Bond Street in 1981.

Phillip's sons Robert and David now carry on their father's tradition, but with a modern, more contemporary twist. The brothers opened their first barbers in Banbury in 2003, before opening a second store in Leamington Spa in 2007. The flagship unisex store in Milton Keynes is still going strong after 36 years, and has recently moved to an exciting new location within the shopping centre that promises to really set the standard in the UK.

Braid Barbers

What our clients say...

  • Friendly, unique and vibrant place to be. The shop is beautiful and definitely a one of a kind experience within the Buckinghamshire area. The staff are fantastic, I wouldn’t get my haircut anywhere else. Barbering at it’s finest!
  • Before finding Braids it used to frustrate me how many barbers just rushed you into the chair barely listened to what you asked for. Braid’s really take their time to listen to you and actually take there time to deliver a quality cut. They used nothing but premium products and I would not trust anybody else with my hair and beard!
  • Really impressed with the whole set up. Great advice is always offered on new styles and a professional, relaxed atmosphere. Can’t praise the staff enough. Look forward to my next visit.
  • On my first visit to Braid’s the staff talked me through a number of cuts that would suit my style and I was delighted with the results. The customer care is second to none and I now won’t have my hair styled anywhere else.
  • I’ve been coming to Braid’s for 10 years and feel that the guys set the standard for barbering. They offer classic yet funky styles in a really friendly atmosphere and stock all the best products to suit any type of hair or beard. If you go to Braid Barbers don’t forget the beard! They've done a top job everytime.
  • Chilled and friendly atmosphere in their Milton Keynes shop. Great stylists at really affordable prices. I would highly recommended Braid Barbers to anyone looking for a modern cut.
