Now this one has got me rather excited – online retailer and Marylebone-based grooming room Man Made London launch have announce they are collaborating on London’s first ever social barber’s pop-up shop.

I know what you’re thinking… WTF is a social barber’s pop-up shop? Well let me explain.

Basically, from the 18th – 20th of September 2014, anyone who visits Man Made London for a grooming treatment will not need to fork over any cash for the service, instead, the social-needia (get it?) generation can pay for their trim with a Facebook post, tweets on Twitter or posts on Instagram.

That’s it! By snapping photos and posting messages with the hashtag #SHAVEMESIR, visitors will be able to experience some great, authentic grooming treatments from London’s finest.

“We’re excited to be launching this unique pop-up shop with Dan Gregory and the Man Made team. Both our brands are active on social media, enjoy engaging with loyal supporters and customers and we are excited to create a unique and enjoyable experience for them as a way of saying thank you.” said Co-Founder Rupa Ganatra.

The fun also doesn’t stop there – you’ll also be able to enjoy popcorn can beer whilst shopping some of the best men’s grooming ranges available from

“Man Made and have worked together for almost year and we have a great partnership. By launching London’s first social pop-up barbers it will give us a chance to showcase what we do and bring together the finest products with the finest gentlemen’s grooming.” said Man Made Founder and Creative Director Dan Gregory.
