“I love the shapes in haircuts, especially short haircuts. And I love textures and colours. It’s amazing to see people satisfied with what I’ve created for them. And of course, hairdressing is such a social job – listening and talking to my customers, not just small talk, but building a rapport with them so I understand them – that’s what I love. When you really understand someone, you can give them a haircut and colour that will ensure they walk out of the salon with their head held high.”
Jacob Lindie, Owner
Jacob Lindie comes from a long line of hairdressers – his mother, his uncle and his cousins are all hairdressers. His first job at age 13 was working as a ‘shampoo boy’ in his uncle’s salon, and after watching his uncle in action – how he cut hair, how he engaged with his customers, how he looked after them – he knew early on that was exactly what he wanted to do.
Jacob has been working in hair salons in Brixton and South London from the time he secured his first apprenticeship in 2006 straight out of high school, to his path from junior stylist, to then senior stylist, and at the young age of 28, opening his own hair salon in Brixton in 2019.
Over the years, Jacob has perfected his hairdressing craft through travel (he spent a year in Australia working with different hairdressers and with different types of hair, particularly Asian and curly hair), networking with other hairdressers whose skills he respects, countless hairdressing courses, and his favourite pastime is spending hours on YouTube at night watching people’s haircuts, and learning different colour techniques. And his skills are so good, with so much trust from his clientele, he’s not short of people to try out new techniques on either.
At Heads High, one of the best new hair salons in Brixton, not only will you get a great haircut (and colour!), you’ll enjoy your time in the salon too. Jacob’s warmth, authenticity and passion for hairdressing shines through everything he does.
"Jacob is a top hairdresser and all round lovely bloke. He does both my and my son’s hair and we always love our haircuts. And he’s brilliant value. Can’t recommend him enough. :)"
"Fantastic cut and colour, Jacob listened to what I wanted, gave some great suggestions and helped me decide with my limited knowledge of hair. I always hated going to the hairdressers before but Jacob made me feel at ease and I'll look forward to my next visit. Highly recommended!"
"Jacob is a brilliant hairdresser. He really listens to what you want when a lot of hairdressers don't. He loves his job and it shows when he is cutting your hair because he takes his time and puts massive effort into it. I can't recommend him enough."
"Jacob is seriously amazing at what he does. I was in a massive rut with my hair before I started seeing him and he just makes it perfect every time. Can't rate highly enough."
