Step Inside Leeds Most Exclusive Men’s Barbers

ARKADE is fast becoming a force within the men’s hairdressing scene. Launched in July 2020, the Leeds based salon has been recognised by key industry players and clients alike for its impeccable services and stunning aesthetics.

Having heavily invested in its creative space and team of skilled stylists, ARKADE sets itself apart from traditional barbers. Offering a 360-grooming experience by combining conventional and contemporary methods of cutting, the salon has amassed an impressive client base – including Premier League footballers, social media influencers and the hair industry’s very own professionals.

Situated in the heart of the city, you can find the salon uniquely placed in the listed Queens Arcade building. Take a walk inside and you are met with a sublime contrast of minimalism and botany. The beautifully sculpted walls covered in a fine layer of Venetian plaster is a feature you will not see anywhere else in the city. The attentiveness of the design serves more than an aesthetic purpose, it offers clients an unrivalled environment to unwind and experience a level of service comparable to a Michelin Star restaurant.


ARKADE itself possesses an industry equivalent Michelin Star, it is the only men’s barbers salon in the city to be a member of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing, an organisation promoting artistic and creative quality. The achievements also include a nomination as the only Northern-based salon to be shortlisted as a finalist at the prestigious British Hairdressing Business Awards taking place in July 2022. The salon has its stylists regularly feature at key industry events such as the Great British Barber Bash and through its retail affiliation with Toni & Guy’s men’s range, label.m, London Fashion Week also looms.

The salon’s Owner, Harris Khan is grateful for the overwhelming support and custom it has received.

“We have grown at a rapid pace after experiencing such turbulent times through the pandemic. I am extremely thankful to all our loyal clients and partners for making this possible. The city of Leeds has been magnificent. The industry itself has welcomed us too, to be recognised within our first two years as a contender at the British Hairdressing Business awards is an honour.”
