Our barbershop on Highbridge is understood to be one of the oldest in Newcastle upon Tyne,  it was first established in 1890 before being renamed in 1954 as Henry's.  Over 130 years and still going strong! Based slap bang in the heart of the city centre we believe that a city centre location doesn't have to mean making an appointment 6 months in advance or remortgaging to afford a haircut, we offer a walk in service all day every day and concessions for students, over 65's and  under 16's all of the time.
