Mens Hair and Beard Colouring
Hair colouring is effective at covering grey hair & restoring vibrant shades
Our barbers can suggest options that are suitable for your beard.  Subtle colouring can help even out the colours between their head hair and their beard. This will help blend and create a more uniform look as well as covering grey hairs.
