The story of the Oldest Barbershop in the World, as recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2014, began in fashionable Mayfair in 1805, the year of Nelson's victorious Battle at Cape Trafalgar, while King George III sat on England's throne and William Pitt the Younger served as its Prime Minister. This was the era of fine craftsmanship, innovation and styling which set the scene for a history that is colourful, inventive and pioneering.

Catering to the exacting standards of London's gentry, when vanity and good grooming were the essential mark of the gentleman, Truefitt offered its demanding clientele a new level of service unsurpassed anywhere in the world. From its array of exceptional products through to its legendary barbering services, there developed a heritage and sense of innovation that today marks Truefitt & Hill as the world leader in men's grooming.

HISTORY AT EVERY TURN

Only at Truefitt is there such a sense of history at every turn. Page through novels by Charles Dickens and W. Thackeray and it becomes apparent that from its inception Truefitt played a pivotal role in preparing Britain's gentry not only for society events but also for their everyday lives. Consequently Truefitt is mentioned throughout modern English literature as a bastion of style and the highest quality service - a tradition we are proud to continue today. During Truefitt's unique history the company has had the honour of serving the Monarchs of Great Britain throughout nine consecutive reigns. Throughout this period, Truefitt has held a number of Royal Warrants, and being 'By Royal Appointment' is still the envy of other, less revered hairdressers. The Royal connection is continued to this day by Truefitt's barbers, and we are honoured to hold a Royal Warrant to H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburg

RIGHT AS A TRIVET!

When William Francis Truefitt opened his shop over two hundred years ago, his focus was firmly set on the quality of his services and products. In fact Truefitt's passion for perfection was reflected in the production of gentleman's wigs, which were soon recognised as the most sought after wigs in London and were worn by the King himself. In fact, it was the perfect fit of Truefitt's wigs in the bygone days that gave raise to the English phrase 'right as a trivet', which was a corruption of Truefitt! Indeed if anything was a perfect fit, it was as right as Truefitt's wig.
