Based in Edinburgh’s West End, the first Ruffians barber shop opened in 2012.

With six stations clustered around one large solid oak cutting desk and a classic interior with contemporary accents, New York Times gave it ‘top marks across the board’.

Beard Tidy | 15 mins


This option is for guys looking to achieve an even beard and a sharp look in an express 15-minute appointment. Our barbers will trim, shape and edge your beard with scissors and clippers before finishing and treat it with Ruffians' signature organic argan oil. Finally, your freshly trimmed and shaped beard will be styled to your exact specifications.

Beard Tidy w/ Razor | 30 mins


This service begins with Ruffians’ signature facial to prepare your skin and hair before the barber trims, edges and shapes your beard. The appointment begins with a full consultation to assess and understand your beard and skin care routine, lifestyle and style preferences to ensure you leave with a beautifully finished beard that you love.

Cut-throat Razor Shave | 45 mins


Our highly-skilled barbers carry out a personalised skin consultation to understand your current shaving regime, whilst examining the direction of growth, density of stubble, and skin sensitivity. A relaxing hot towel treatment and a refreshing facial treatment clears pores and softens the hair ahead of an expert shave and the smoothest possible finish.

Haircut | 45 mins


A Ruffians haircut comes with a full consultation as standard - taking into consideration your lifestyle, face shape and hair type - to ensure you leave with a style you love. A refreshing hair wash with conditioning shampoo and an invigorating scalp massage before the cut, finishing and styling will ensure you leave feeling as good as you look.

Ruffians Facial | 15 mins


The service begins with a consultation to understand your current skincare regime, whilst examining skin sensitivity. An exfoliating scrub invigorates the skin before a soothing and relaxing hot towel treatment. An upper body and head massage will help ease away your cares, while a hydrating facial moisturiser refreshes and nourishes your skin.
