Barber Shop City explores, with close attention, the events and activities that take place within the four walls of three ethnic barber shop around the city of London. The film is designed to clarify diversity within the barber shop culture depending on the district and/or the ethnic background of the shop and the people associated with it.

The idea came into place when (Director) Mark Brown’s fascination with the truly vibrant social setting of London barbering, specifically Caribbean parlours, became research as to what the environment really means to its customers who seem to become loyal to their individual neighbourhood barbers. It also delves into what the trade represents to the barbers themselves; including the family ties that are often incredibly apparent.
