Matchbox Barbershop and Salon is a small but perfectly formed hairdresser in one of Bath's most beautiful buildings. Owner Faith, has been clipping and trimming the tresses of Bath for the past five years and can now be found nestled in a corner of the Neo-Classical Forum Coffee House that, quite literally, used to be a broom cupboard.
What Matchbox lacks in stature it more than makes up for in style, with every centimetre of this tiny space used to its maximum and stylish effect. Matchbox doesn't let its size define its ambitions either and can cater to everyone from kids (who can make as much noise as they want!) to the most hirsute of heads, all with a relaxing head massage and the very best products, not to mention the option of coffee from Forum Coffee House next door.
"I really want everyone to feel welcome in the salon. We think it's a charming and beautiful space and we hope our customers do too"
