About the company

Do you dread going to the salon? Paying extra for your gender, services you don't want, awkward chats that make you feel uncomfortable. Or you might be looking to limit your contacts with others during this Pandemic.

Take a deep breath; you are not alone.

Mako is also fed up with the system and just want to do what they like to do: cut hair, make people feel good about themselves, and support the queer community! 

MxMK is an inclusive and intimate hair parlor set up in the privacy of Mako's studio in Hackney Wick. It offers gender neutral pricing and top quality haircuts, without all the bullshit. It’s also a space of personal well-being where the goal is to make you feel and look not only gorgeous, but mainly like yourself. Because we shouldn't care about society’s beauty standards, only your own.

Mako loves building strong relationships with their clients and helping them express their personalities through their appearance. They have 10+ years of experience in the field. They trained in hairdressing and barbering in both Paris and London, where they managed the gender neutral barbershop Barberette for a few years. When they're not behind the chair they can be found doing more hair on films and photo-shoots. Some would say it's a passion ;)

!PRIORITY TO LGBTQIA+ QPOC! Allies, family and pet friendly. Specialize in both classic and radical cuts, long to short, hair patterns, curly, Afro-Caribbean, balding, micro trims for the long haired witches traumatized by the hairdresser, great local food recommendations and overall good vibes!
