Prime Minister Boris Johnson is known for his shaggy, mop-like hairstyle.

It left him struggling to contain his hair as it blew in the wind as he went about his daily business.

The Prime Minister has not let that stop him, appearing in the House of Commons, taking Cabinet meetings and briefing the public at the regular Covid-19 conferences.
So who is the Prime Minister’s barber and how often does Boris Johnson get his shaggy hairstyle cut? Here’s what we know.
Who is the Prime Minister’s barber and when does he get his hair cut?
Boris Johnson has had several different stylists over the years.
While serving as UK Foreign Secretary, it is believed he visited The Bay Room in Angel, north London, to have his hair cut.
According to the sun diary , the store owner told the publication that the politician gets his hair cut once every two and a half to three months.
But it is believed he did not stick with the boutique when he became prime minister. Instead, opt for a hairdresser closer to you.
In 2019, the sun diary reported that the Prime Minister had his hair cut at the Funky Barber in west London after the boss yelled at him to do so.
Owner Simon told the publication that Johnson would have to have her locks trimmed every four weeks to keep the look. He said: “I told him he should get a haircut and it would be much better for his look and although a bit reluctant at first he was happy to give it a try.
“I would say he needs to cut it every four weeks to keep the style he has. It’s a much more tidy look and I think it suits him well.
But as the coronavirus pandemic began and national lockdowns in England were introduced, Johnson struggled to keep his hair under control, like the rest of us.
According to online mail , the Prime Minister’s wife, Carrie, cut her hair in February 2021, for the first time.
After the nationwide lockdown was lifted in England and when the rules permitted, Johnson opted for a haircut at a personal hairdresser at his Downing Street residence.
