Blue Light Barbers official website

Welcome back! Please note, appointments only at the moment. No walk-ins available, so please don't come unless you have a confirmed appointment.

To all our customers re Covid-19:

In order to reduce the risks for both staff and customers we have made several changes at the shop in compliance with official Health and Safety guidelines.

Please check this website for updates. In the meantime, take care and stay safe.

Some of the measures we are taking may feel like a drastic change, but they are necessary. Hopefully they won't last forever but we would appreciate your understanding and co-operation while they are in force. Please take the time to read about the changes below. 


In order to manage the number of people coming to the shop after so long without a haircut, we have decided to use an appointment system for the first two weeks of re-opening. This will be reviewed in due course. Please use the form below to request an appointment.

UPDATE: Appointments are now only available from Wed 15th July, all before that are booked. To cope with demand we have extended Sunday opening hours to 5pm instead of 4pm. Also, remember we are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, so please only select Weds to Sunday. If you are happy to be allocated an am or pm slot, this is now in the drop-down list. If you are flexible on dates, or you would like us to call you in the case of a cancellation, please say so in the "Additional information" box at the bottom of the form.

Do not come if you feel unwell or have any of the following symptoms:

  • a new continuous cough
  • high temperature
  • loss of (or change in) normal sense of taste or smell
Do not come if you or anyone in your household has been told by NHS to self-isolate.



In order to follow whatever social distancing rules are in force at the time of re-opening there will be reduced waiting facilities inside the shop.

Persons not having a haircut must not enter the shop, so please come alone for your haircut. The only exception will be for customers who need to be accompanied by a parent or carer. The parent or carer is responsible for supervision at all times, so if also requiring a haircut they may need to come alone at a different time.

Please do not consume food or drink inside the shop and please note there are no customer toilet facilities in the shop.

Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to cut the hair of any child under 5, or any who cannot sit alone in the barber chair. Before booking, please ensure your child will be comfortable wearing the facemask provided.


Hand sanitiser and a new facemask will be provided for use on entering.

Customers will be required to wear the facemask provided at all times whilst inside the shop, and disposable capes will be used. Your stylist will be wearing appropriate PPE.

Thorough cleaning and disinfection will be carried out between clients. Your patience will be much appreciated.
